We stayed two nights at La Casa de Marita in the "Jr. Suite or Blanco room" Basically it was 3 twin beds for my husband, daughter and myself. The location is perfect. After exploring the local tortereras Islands - we hunkered down in the lounge/patio area of the hotel. We were there on the vernal Equinox, which is really cool... More

We stayed for four nights at the end of out trip to the Galapagos and this was by far the best hotel we stayed at in the whole Galapagos Island. Really reasonably priced for what was offered. The views were amazing, hammocks & day beds by the beach, doesn't get much better! Waking up on the beach on the Galapagos... More

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.

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.
