Clean rooms perfect for functional sleeping. Don't expect more. Our rooms only had a bed, 1 closet and that was it. No chairs, table or anything to make you feel at home. The showers are also way below par. Almost no pressure and hardly any water. Don't go here if you want to feel at home or are looking for... More

We were supposed to have 4 nights here over Christmas - we'd just been on a cruise and wanted a base where we could take it at a slower pace for a few days. We'd checked out the website and had liked the idea of the garden & hammocks. What was previously a garden is now a building site -... More

Hotel was in construction so I mentioned I would be moving out the following day since it was late when I arrived. The next day, coming back from a tour, someone was coming out of my room. When I asked the owner why he gave access to my paid room, with my luggage still in it, he told me I... More

The hotel is located at the back of the town but is still only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Outside there is a shaded area with hammocks, perfect for relaxing. Also, there's a kitchen and dining area available to use. The rooms are spotlessly clean, with air con and powerful hot showers. Staff can help organise tours for... More

nice place to stay, clean, simple rooms, plenty of hot water, family run, very helpful and friendly. 10 Minutes walk to the beach. Family member is also a natural guide; snorkelling, visiting the volcano, and lots more. I can recommend this place, because the people are really nice!

We booked this Hostal on-line and would have felt Ok about it, but there were "basic things" lacking, even things that most hostals provide. While the facility was clean, had hot water, and the hosts were friendly, we had no clothes hangers on which to hang clothes....not even 1, and no where to store toiletries. The breakfast, included with the... More

My family of 5 arrived in Isabela without a reservation (as should you, if you want to save money), and we looked around for nice, affordable accomodations. We stopped by the Gran Hotel Tortuga -- one of the few Isabela hotels that works with the online travel agencies -- and they were full. But they recommended the Hostal Tintorera --... More
