Great location with the best view around the island. The owner is a great man full of histories (if you speak espanish) and marvellous host. In front of the hotel you have the longest beach in Isabella and is practically for you. Totally recomended.

The first time I have felt let down by Trip Advisor. The La Jungla is plain old run down. Pablo seems to be in it for the money with no real interest in providing a positive experience for visitors. He is much more into his tour business. Also he is not the most dependable fellow, neglecting to take us to... More

At 15 usd it was cheaper than my first place on santa cruz and suited my budget more. It was therefore a pleasant surprise that the room and private bathroom was loads nicer and the water is proper hot and heated by an external heater. The owner is so nice and helpful and helped me with lots of information and... More

We bumped into the owner (Pablo) when we arrived to Isabela and he seemed nice enough of a guy to at least check his place out. We ended up staying here for three nights and it was an absolute pleasure. We had a fabulous ocean view from our bedroom, free WiFi, a shared kitchen, and 24/7 hot water. All for... More

We had a great stay at El Jungla! the rooms were spacious and nice, big kitchen (could be cleaner but was fine), 10 steps from the ocean, very quiet at night, really nice! and Pablo and his family will welcome you and propose you tours (Papis tours) that you should definitely take! they're good prices and greatly organized! Great memories!

It's ocean front, i had a huge window over looking the ocean on the second floor. Reliable hot water, wifi, comfortable beds and a small cafe. It is an eclectic little place, none of the linens match but it is clean and you can't beat the price. No air conditioning but great ocean breeze made it perfectly comfortable. Owners are... More

We stayed in 2009 one week La Jungla, and because of the great memories, we went back in november 2011 and stayed there 10 days. It was like coming home. The owners are really nice people and very helpfull . They don't speak English, but you can easily manage with basic Spanish. The location near the huge beach at the... More

We had a huge room with a gorgeous view of the ocean. It was clean, although this being the tropics there were quite a few bugs to deal with. No air conditioning but it was fine for a couple of nights. The staff were all very friendly and helpful even though we didn't speak much Spanish. Breakfast was delicious with... More

The views from the jungle was amazing. All the staff seemed really friendly. Breakfast was pretty basic, egg, fruit and a roll. Showers were hot, beds comfy. Internet didn't really work and no air co. Right on the beach front and 10 min walk from town.

Liked: As they say the location near the beach is great, although this could be said for many hostels/hotels on the island. The showers are good and the rooms a good size with comfortable beds. Disliked: We had a friendly welcome and were collected from the harbour when we arrived but this was a case of mistaken identity as they... More
