Hotel Albemarle is exceptional, particularly against the backdrop of Puerto Villamil, a sleepy fishing village. The hotel's owner, Max Murray, is an Englishman in his 30s who is extremely helpful in both arranging excursions and providing advice as a local. We stayed in the only suite, which is a luxurious 1-bedroom apartment. The bathroom in the suite is top-notch, with... More

I recently spent 10 days in Hotel Albemarle. My partner and i spent a couple of weeks travelling the different islands, but the highlight of our stay was staying at the Hotel Albemarle in Isabella. The hotel is beautiful. Right on the beach! The rooms were gorgeous. Spacious and clean. It was the first hotel we stayed in that had... More

After looking at pictures and reading the other reviews of this hotel, I was very much looking forward to staying here. When I arrived, however, I was very dissapointed. Yes, the rooms are beautiful and modern. It was nice to be able to flush my toilet paper, but thats about all. We had two rooms and neither were ready when... More

Ditto what has already been said. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will definitely return. The Albermarle is right on the beach, in the center of town (a very small, very quiet little village really), and every room has a wonderful sea view. Max was fantastic at suggesting things to do, and he arranged several taxis, a boat/snorkeling tour, a... More

This hotel is located on the biggest and least populated island of the Galapagos. It is a magnificent 5 star hotel with excellent service and a 5 star restaurant. The owner, from England, is named Max Murray. He has a lovely wife Diana who runs the place along with a small and most helpful staff. Marco is the Austrian Chef... More

All the staff from the waiter to Max's wife was fantastic. For a good trip in Isabela, Albermarle is definitly the place to be... the rooms are... More

Hotel Albemarle is newly opened and run by a young friendly Anglo-ecuadorian couple. It's located in Puerto Villamil on the south coast of Isla Isabela, the largest of the Galapagos Islands, and definitely the best place to stay ... if you'r looking for a big comfortable bed, free laundry service, a helpful British-speaking owner and a spectacular ocean view!
