Hotel AbleMarle is Parisio!Our experience was both excellent and memorable. Max and Diana have built a lovely boutique hotel with 8 rooms, soon to be 11 in 2009. The design and interiors of the rooms, restaurant and bar are warm and appealing, The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with a Master Suite offering magnificent ocean views and a long sandy...

Beautiful hotel right on the beach in a fantastic location. The room was fantastic with an amazing bathroom. The view was stunning. The food was memorable and all the staff very helpful. A lovely place to stay and Isabella itself is an incredible place to visit.

The Albemarle Hotel is clearly the best choice for accommodations on Isabela Island in the Galapagos. The hotel has the best view in Isabela ... and if that's not enough, it is very clean, comfortable (hot water and air conditioning) and well run. From what I saw while walking around the town, the was far and away the nicest hotel... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time in Isabela and hotel Abermarle. I'm writing this review because I think it is important for other people to know this hotel is the best in Isabela. I had such a hard time deciding where to stay, but I'm glad I chose this hotel. The room was nice and spacious, had a... More

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

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
