We stayed here as part of our organized tour. The breakfast was great, location is excellent, good rooms with got water and a beautiful balcony area overlooking the entire bay. I was overall happy with the hotel despite the fact that there was no water in the morning (problem with the water system but luckily we checked out early) and... More

We had the most incredible time in the Galapagos! We learned a lot about the wildlife, history, and conservation efforts before we went and I think that it made going there much more special. Our trip was planned out by Galapagosbest.com and they were incredible! They planned everything so that our trip ran smoothly. They planned our trip perfectly so... More

This hotel is in a excellent location near the center of town on Santa Cruz island and it is also two blocks away from Puerto Ayora which is main port on the island from which all the excursions take place.

The location of this hotel is perfect, situation right in town and next to the water-taxi port. I enjoyed my stay, although the breakfast was average. There is a beautiful top floor that overlooks Santa Cruz and there are many good restaurants around this location.

This is a fairly big hotel in the town of Puerto Ayora. The common spaces are very nice and include a large eating area, bar with pool tables and a terrace on the top floor. The rooms are small but come with A/C and a small balcony. I´ve stayed here a couple times so the rooms vary, the bathroom are... More

This is a very nice hotel with a superb location. This is not a luxury hotel by any means, but it allows you to experience the real Galapagos. Owned by locals, and operated by locals, unlike many surrounding hotels, it offers clean rooms, decent food and a very welcoming atmosphere. Walking distance, you will find a variety of restaurants, the... More

This hotel couldnt find any ice, has no elevators (4 floors, so plan on schlepping your bags up to your room, and has a bar but is not staffed. Rate it 1/2 star , I'd rate it lower but they did change the sheets evewry day.

For $210 per night, this is one of the worst hotels I ever stayed in. There was no elevator to the room, I had to carry all 4 suitcases up 3 flights. The bathroom was horrible, it smelled like feces all the time. I asked the bath tub and sink to be cleaned, but it still looked bad. It looked... More

This hotel was included as part of a package. It was a great location - our room overlooked an alley, so no noise issues, and had a balcony with a vew of the ocean. One woman at the front desk was incrediby helpful, and made several calls on our behalf to confirm the arrangements for airport pick up; another merely... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in Jan '07 while day tripping to different islands. The room we had was clean, had air conditioning, and a large bathroom. It was a expensive which makes it less of a value but I wouldn't think twice about staying here again.
