Galapagos Alternative reserved our room at Miconia. We spent three nights there upon arriving in Galapagos and one night at the end. First we had Room 11 upstairs facing the inner courtyard, and Room 7 on the ground floor (weird feng shui) on the return. Beds were comfy and rooms extremely clean. The location was great- right across from the... More

We stayed for three nights at the hotel, which is on the sea front in Puerto Moreno, a perfect location. The hotel itself is okay, the food is quite good for lunch and dinner, although the breakfast is limited in choice. The bedrooms are of a reasonable size and are in generally in good order. The bathrooms are also okay,... More

Damp, dark, dirty, rundown. We booked the "presidential suite" on the top floor (up 5 flights of stairs). The only good thing about that room was the patio overlooking the bay. The rugs were filthy: stained and full of dirt and dust. So bad that I had to roll them up and put them under the bed. There were piles... More

Our stay in San Cristobal island during 2009/2010 new year's eve was one of the top trips of our lives (my wife included), and Hotel Miconia played and important part in the great experience we had. Good accomodations (not luxurious, but indeed good), good staff (specially Mrs. Kathy Espinel), good food, great location right in front of the harbour. In... More

I stayed in a variety of hotels in Ecuador and Galapagos. This place was the most expensive of them all and was the worst of them all. I arrived in my room and immediately went to take a shower. There was no presssure coming out after I tried both handles, neither of which indicated hot or cold. I was assured... More

We had a great stay at the Miconia! Great rooms, great staff, great location, and great food at restaraunt. Couldn't fault it. Kathy is an awsome hostess and went out of her way to help us out and suggest things to do - even when she wasn't at the hotel (rang on her mobile/cell phone when she was on other... More

A very pleasant experience on San Cristobal. Don't expect alot in the way of luxuries, but very nice, unique hotel. Our room was very quaint and we had a nice view of the port. It's very centrally located, so its easy to catch tours or explore the city. The food at the restaraunt was good with lots of different choices... More

This hotel looked very nice from the outside, and the room was nice but had a view of the building site next door. There were also a lot of ants in the room. It was quite noisy during the day as there is a gym on the ground floor that has excercise classes using loud music. The restaurant has a... More

We stayed at the Miconia because the Lonely Planet had said it was easily the nicest place to stay and the price was $40/60. Unfortunately the prices had gone up considerably from the 2006 publishing of the book and prices were now $117 a night for the cheapest double room. This meant we were stuck in the back of the...
