La Casa de Marita is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and they would serve you wherever you wanted to eat, but the neat little "crow's nest" was a wonderful spot to enjoy a nice meal and view. Their breakfast was the best breakfast we had in the Galapagos.... More

We truly enjoyed La Casa de Marita, where you can relax, soak in the amazing view, walk to the pier to find lots of baby iguanas hanging out, and walk into the little town in just a few minutes. The staff is courteous, on top of things, and dedicated. Marita herself helped us to organize our day trips. Best place... More

I stayed here for a week and have just returned. This place is just fantastic and ticks all my boxes. It is situated right on the beach as in step off the decking and you are on the beach. With the jet lag I was initially awake really early and would just walk out of my room onto the beach... More

Marita and her staff treated us extremely well, and even intervened in a very protective fashion when an unscrupulous taxi-driver tried to triple-charge us. Gabby and another girl (I forget her name--sorry) went after this guy big-time. And when owner Marita learned of the incident, she indicated she would follow-up. Marita and her staff are VERY focused on taking care... More
