Room so small with odd wall angles and poorly furnished there's barely room to put your things. Housekeeping often forget to restock toilet paper and I was left to hunt it down myself. The mini frig was not working and smelled terribly. Food is over priced. Pool is tiny and seems unclean...did not venture in it. AC unit barely kept... More

Great location. Clean rooms, good wifi, great breakfast. Exceeded my expectations on arrival. Free filtered water in lobby. Could hear the sealions from my room at night-so cool ! I plan to return to Miconia.

I traveled with my wife and kids (8 and 3 y.o.) and two other couples with their kids, we stayed for four nights. Overall I give this hotel a 3 on international standards and a 4.5 compared with other hotels in galapagos. Miconia is very nice, well mantained. Rooms are clean, not the most modern instalations but everything works. Employees... More

I'm going to review several Galapagos hotels, starting with Hotel Miconia, but I need to caveat my experience to be fair. Caveat #1: I booked a 9-day Galapagos tour so I did not choose or actually know which hotels we were staying in before arriving in Ecuador, so I had no preconceived notions. I also didn't know the room rates... More

I stayed here with my son as the second stop on our Galapagos Adventure. I found the room to be clean, spacious, and more than adequate as a place to rest after exploring the island. The hotel restaurant was gracious enough to serve us an hour before they actually opened and the food was ridiculously plentiful, not to mention pretty... More

Seaside Inn belongs to the Miconia's owners. Brand new, opened six months ago. Just eight suites, huge rooms, fantastic beds, great architectural design. In.-house cook for breakfast (lobster ceviche , bolon de verde, freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee) -the oranges come from the owners orchard- Outdoors jacuzzi small swimming pool. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Very good wi-fi. Close... More

This hotel was fine. I particularly think its a little expensive to the level of the installations but overall it is a good hotel. The service is great! Friendly, helpful and very attentive personal. Ive seen other hotels in other islands with the same price but that are more attractive. The food is very good. We ate all meals in... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in the Presidential suite and had a blast. I dove Kicker rock and he fished with a fisherman set up by the hotel. They landed many tuna and wahoo and had a ball! Then Kathy at the hotel cooked the tuna for our dinner! Kathy was tremendous and treated us like family.... More

We stayed here during a family trip to San Cristobal. We were island hopping and doing day tours to explore the Galapagos. Our family only stayed here for a few nights, but we enjoyed it while we were here. Most important to us is the location - it is the best on the island, right on the pier with sea... More

It really has the best location in the island. Great view from the restaurant (not the rooms). It has a 3/5 gym if you are into that (basic stuff... It is the only gym in the island). The port is only a few steps away, and the advantage over the other hotels in the shore is that there is no... More
