It is quite a bit above the main road but not very far to walk. If it is too far there are always taxis. They provide free bicycles which is great for getting around the island. The breakfast was OK but the room was very very nice. And it is also great to be able to plunge into the pool... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Hotel is 10 minutes walk from the San Cristobal pier or $1 for taxi. The rooms are apartment style with large living area, bathroom and large bedroom. My room was comfortable and very clean. WiFi was effective notwithstanding the remote satellite access. I used wifi to send photos and make voice calls... More

Although our room was large and clean, the staff attentive, though not much English was spoken, and the breakfast was very good, our two night stay at Pimampiro was disappointing because of its location. We stayed in mid-October when there were fewer tourists on San Cristobal making the hotel seem isolated and out of the way, five long blocks up... More

Stayed here in a large group while on a service trip to Ecuador. Service was phenomenal, food at breakfast was great (always ate out in town for lunches and dinners), pool was well maintained and the rooms were spacious and comfortable with very good bathrooms. Not a waterfront location, but close enough you can just take a quick walk down... More

Great hotel with amazing staff! Very attentive and caring. Breakfast was crazy good, served with one of the best hot chocolates I've ever had! Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are luxury for those used to the smaller cramped bathrooms found in most hostels. Location is good too, not too far from the beaches and local wildlife.

My family stayed at Pimampiro during our recent visit to the Galápagos. Right away we felt at home. It is located at the top of the hill overlooking the town, and has a great view of the ocean. It is all self contained with laundry, a restaurant, and a very refreshing pool that the kids put to good use. It... More

Positive: - spacious and clean - lovely decoration - great service: there is always somebody to take your questions or wishes - breakfast is fresh, plenty and diverse - fresh water and cooler in the room - laundry service on site -...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with a school group. Alejandra was very accommodating and provided our group with a very nice stay. We were divided into two groups; one group was across the road in another building and the other half stayed in the main hotel building. Both sections of the hotel have pools, although the main...

We stay here on January 9 and 10; impeccable local hotel, clean, spacious, excellent breakfast, nice staff. For the locals to benefit from tourist money, it is better to hop from Islandto Island than visiting by staying on yachts or cruise liners. In the later cases the money goes to wealthy individuals and corporations residing on the continent. Locals can... More

A little distant from Porto Baquerizo Moreno, but ot worth the view, the nice pool and a delicious breakfast. All new air conditioning, spatious and well equiped room, including even a safe. Very friendly staff. They can help you with everything.
