We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely beachfront accommodation, we had a ground floor room facing the ocean, which was great, the rooms with balconies upstairs looked nice too. Our room had a dehumidifier which helped greatly with the moist air in the Galapagos. There are hammocks and loungers out front which was perfect for relaxing after a hard... More

This is a laid back, sleepy feel but very professional hotel in the Galápagos. Spacious room, nice lobby area with books and wifi. Breakfast buffet and other meals were just right. No safe in room, but front desk had secure storage. Easy walk to the bar on the pier and into the small town, as well as to the pier.... More

We had just finished a long diving week and came to Isabela for a few days to recouperate! We met Marita whilst checking in and she was very helpful, as were all the staff. Our room was nice ( we booked a duplex suite) and the bath robes were a nice touch too. Just a little tip about the weather:... More

This is a very cozy and comfortable spot. The deck on the beach is a perfect spot for a drink and conversation. Staff was extremely pleasant and welcoming and those at the front desk spoke English very well. The food was very good, too.

Casa de Marita is nicely located on the beach, not too far from the port. The food was good and the rooms ok (nothing special, but what you need). What makes the place special is the friendly staff and the service. Every request was met with a smile and a can-do attitude. It happened to be our 6-months wedding anniversary... More

Due to some itinerary changes, we arrived here very early in the morning. No one expected the rooms to be ready so it was a pleasant surprise that they were. I was with a group. The room I was in was very basic but others were much nicer. The bathroom was small and difficult to move around in and the... More

My family of four would definitely stay here again. We had a large, garden room, with a queen size bed for myself and my husband and two, twin beds for our teenage sons. The beach was never crowded and we saw two green sea turtles and a sea lion in front of the hotel. Marita has a large staff which... More

Rooms are unique but get one on the beach. We were in the annex across the street. The rooms were very clean and well kept but the beachfront rooms rock! Meals were very good, the restaurant is yummy. Try the chicken soup! Everything within walking distance but be warned, this place is primitive! One thing, that could not be helped....... More
