This hotel was the perfect spot for my stay on Isabela with a friend and my two sons. We had the perfect ocean view, and the kids (ages 7 and 10) could play on the beach and see amazing wildlife. Service was very good, and we enjoyed the breakfasts. We were concerned about the electric showerhead heaters and did some... More

The hotel is well located and easily accessible to the main square, but its old and facilities could be better maintained. The view of the beach is nice and the service was good, we were assisted in everything we needed for day tours and info.

Clean room and nice view to the sea. The furniture and lining were a bit old but the owner was very gentle and helpful. Our hot water wasn't working during our first night but they fix it the following day.

Small place with clean and comfortable rooms, air conditioned and a lovely breakfast. Right on the beach, an upper deck and lower sun room to escape the sun while enjoying the beach. Excellent breakfast. Great place to while away an afternoon in a hammock! Owner speaks little English, but was easily able to help us with getting about. Amazing sunsets,... More

We stayed at the Cormorant Beach House in January. Althought the location of this hotel is quite nice, right on the beach with beautiful views of the ocean, the place could use some sprucing up. The bathroom in our room was dirty. The sink didn't look like it had been cleaned and the mirror over the sink was dirty as... More

We stayed 2 nights at Cormorant as part of a land-based trip around the Galapagos. While this was definitely the most basic place we stayed, I actually liked it. The family who owns it speaks very little English but we managed to communicate our needs effectively, although it was impossible to ask more in-depth questions about things to do on... More

We stayed 5 nights and really liked the athmosphere and the beautiful view just right on the beach. Staff is helpful and service is good. Rooms are tidy. No reasons to complain!

Yes, it is a House, but a terrible one. If we had a tent right on a beach it would have been way much better. Our plan was to stay three nights here, but after we saw the room and spent one night we decided cu go back to Santa Cruz Island. We received a room upstairs, the one on... More

This guesthouse is set in a beach-front property right next to the owner's family house. This will guarantee a very personal service in an laid back atmosphere. The rooms downstairs have a door that leads right into the beach, while the upstairs rooms have a common balcony with beautiful ocean views. You can use both upstairs and downstairs, including the...

I booked this hotel online by contacting the owners online. They do not take credit cards so I did not have to pay anything before I got there. They pick you up when you arrive at the dock. This is really useful as taxis in Isabela are not that common and it is a good one mile walk to the... More
