My wife and I enjoyed a stay on Isabella at La Casa de Marita, and loved it. It's not luxurious, but it's the perfect basic island simple life hotel, located in walking distance from the main port. It had a spacious oceanfront/view balcony with a palm tree that grew right through it. We mention that it was our belated honeymoon... More

La Casa de Marita is a nice hotel with a great location on the beach, a big plus! Our "Naranja" room was pretty spacious with a balcony. The room needs a little bit of fixing like the bathroom, the hot wáter was limited so we're lucky it was summer time. I was surprised there was no TV in our room.... More

Dear Sophia, We are glad that you liked your room and your balcony. We are sorry you had trouble with the hot water, sometimes our guests don’t know how to make the hot water function, but if you ask we are always willing to help show you how to make it work or make the necessary repairs to make sure...

Our stay in this amazing hotel was in the middle of our month long trip to Ecuador. We chose Isabela as our midway point in our land based tour of the Galapagos and chose the Casa Di Marita as our fancy resort splurge of the trip. So happy we did....

We loved staying at Casa de Marita at Isabela Island in Galápagos. The attention is optimum, the location is excellent, as it is just in front of a beautiful white sand beach. The hotel is very nice, comfortable and cozy. Rooms are big, comfortable and with a terrace with an espectacular view to the ocean, very good buffet breakfast included,... More

What an amazing location, view and chill atmosphere. It's on the side of town closer to Concha Perla so it was literally a 20 minute walk to go snorkeling with sealions, penguinos and turtles. Plus 5 minutes walk away is the harbour breakwater with sunning iguanas. This is such a great location and setup. Worth every penny

The hotel backs on to the beach, so you can watch the Pelicans and Boobies dive for food whilst sitting on your sun lounger. Frigate birds will be just idly ridding the thermals overhead. I also saw penguins and marine iguanas further down beach. The rooms are clean and mine was spacious. Breakfast buffet has a good range of items,... More

We stayed here three nights - 2 families- 4 rooms. As it was booked by our agent we had not done room selection or research in advance-trusting them to do this. Big mistake. Unlike many reviewers here only 2 of our 4 rooms were good. none of them had views but 2 were in the Annexe- a ground floor somewhat... More

This is a lovely hotel. Very laid back yet the attention to detail in every aspect made our stay perfect. We stayed at one of the upstairs beachfront rooms.
