We stayed in this location over Carnaval weekend. We were coming from Sta. Cruz island and only had 3 nights to spare in Isabela before we return stateside. We mentioned to Hanna our hostess that we were on our honeymoon and a champagne bottle was waiting for us when we came back on our first night. We stayed in Blanca... More

There are very few beach hotels in Isabella and this is one of the best locations. Marita, herself is charming and highly efficient (and connected, it seems) in the local community as she sorted out a snafu by the local airline when we went to leave. It was looking like we were in for a real mess not being able... More

My wife and I stayed several nights while Island hopping around the Galapagos. The hotel wasair conditioned, very comfortable and clean. It is located on a beautiful beach and includes an excellent full service restaurant with a menu selection. From what we could see within a walking radius of the hotel, there were not many goods and services. We had... More

I assume this hotel is one of the best on Isabela because of the location on the beach. But please note that the description on the homepage doesn't match the reality. We have booked the Yellow Suite but we missed the features living room and kitchenette. It's just a large, nice, room with a bed, 2 chairs, sideboard and a... More

It doesn't get much more romantic than La Casa de Marita. The setting is on beach looking west at the ocean and Isabela headlands so the sunsets are breathtaking. Marine iguanas, sea lions visit daily around the red mangrove trees on the water. The hotel is a collection of small buildings clustered around a gated courtyard on the street through... More

A beautiful hotel and a wonderful time. Pina Coladas were the best. The staff was extremely attentive, attractively attired and very professional. Meals were delicious and beautifully presented. Definitely a first class place.

Our tour itinerary said that we were to stay at Iguana Crossing but we were taken here instead. Compared to Iguana Crossing (just seen from the outside), La Casa de Marita is not as modern but we still enjoyed our stay. The beach directly in front of the hotel is just lovely with sand that feels fabulous against your feet,... More

This hotel is generally nice the room we stayed at was spacious and clean even though it is not brand new. The hotel is on the beach which is nice, however it has grown so much that the food is not good and you have to reserve dinner at lunch time. Space towards the beach is also crowded.
