After an unfriendly visit of bugs and a cockroach (our only encounter was on san cristobal as there are obviously more), we could easily get another room that seemed free of any unwanted roommates. Other than that rooms were ok clean and a very nice breakfast was included.

Beautiful hotel to compliment the beautiful Galápagos Islands. Walking distance to the waterfront where you can laze around watching the sea lions and sunset. Breakfasts excellent and nice communal area. Wifi needs improving, but overall good stay.

We booked this online and the staff was great. Very accommodating and friendly. The location is very convenient to all spots on San Cristobal. You can walk to the harbor or port from the hotel. A lot of restaurants close by. Great place to stay.

The hotel is quite simple, definitely not a resort. Very nice but not in any way fancy. The rooms are plain but functional and clean. We had to dry out our dive gear and there was plenty of room to do that and for two adults to move about. Everything was in working order. Breakfast was eggs and toast plus... More

What a surprise! A delightful small hotel in a safe and quiet area of the town! We throughly enjoyed our stay, and except for a too firm for our taste mattress we enjoyed it very much. Breakfast included fresh fruits and juices, eggs and more. Clean, clean, clean! The dining area, kitchen, halls (outside) are all immaculate. The staff are... More

Maz Azul is in a quiet location on the outshirts of the town yet within easy walking distance from all local amenities. Very comfortable, room cleaned with fresh towels each day. A nice, friendly relaxed establishment. highly recommended.

Hotel Casa Mar Azul was a pleasant surprise. It was very clean, quiet and friendly. I felt like I was part of the family there.

Claudia was a delight to deal... More

Excellent room, the owners and keepers of the hotel were very nice and accommodating to our needs. It is a 5-10 minute walk on the same road leading out of the airport, which makes it very convenient to get to. 5 minutes from the town. I would stay here again!

This is a basic hotel but super comfortable and reasonably priced. The AC works, the beds are great and it is very comfortable. What I liked best about the hotel....the people, they are very accommodating and go out of their way to help their guests. I would definitely stay here again. There is free wifi in common area.
