For $135 in a double room I expected more the place is súper neat and clean. The common areas comfortable.The breakfast was great. AC and TV worked great and pillows comfortable. The pool clean but too cold and the jacuzzi was never warm... If I'm paying this much I expect to have a warm hot tub at least after mid... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

I'd read reviews before I stayed here and was a bit worried. When I hear "great budget hotel" I start to worry whose definition of "budget" we're going by. But the place was wonderful. Impeccably clean, great location for walking to the pier and restaurants, and the breakfast was served family style and was simple but great. I definitely would... More

Basic ensuite rooms on a single level spread around an entrance way decorated with pretty plants. The open dining area was at the far end and served the normal fruit and bread fare with scrambled eggs one morning, and drinking water is available from a big container. The free wifi was too slow and I was unable to connect. Convenient... More

Odd place - huge rooms with unused space (a chair/couch would be nice). Clean, all tile throughout with no rugs, even in the bathroom - there was a plastic green bath mat and when the shower leaked we did ask for more towels and the reception gave us more and a bath mat - don't know why we had to...

This hotel close to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno waterfront, is a good budget place to stay. The rooms are large and well equipped, there's a pool and a Jacuzzi and the breakfast is good. There's free wifi connection and free drinkable water to fill your bottle.

I stayed here for two nights in January. The room was basic but clean and thankfully I did not see any Harry Potter-style spiders as noted by another reviewer. The Wifi worked in my room most of the time but there were outages. There are apparently a large group of roosters housed adjacent to the hotel. The roosters are very... More

The hotel provides the basic services properly (clean, quiet, safety and communications). The staff is courteous and attentive to any request. Don't expect amenities like in any chain hotel. Assume this hotel as a base for those who want to enjoy the outdoors. If you plan to spend your time in San Cristobal IN a hotel, I suggest not to... More

This hotel is nice, well kept and clean. We especially like the pool. It is a great place to cool off and relax after a half- day of snorkelling at the beach under the equatorial sun. Although the staff speaks no English, they are friendly and seem to do their best to accommodate guest requests. The problem is the hotel's... More

We stayed only one night in this hotel while on tour with G Adventures. I loved the set-up of a central courtyard. It felt very secure and homey. The rooms are very large and clean. I found the staff present and very helpful. They spoke little English but why should they? We are in their country... I had no problem... More

After a month of great experiences in the Galapagos Islands, it was disappointing to end it at this place. I booked the hotel for my dad and myself after our cruise thinking that it would be nicer than the hostel where I stayed since it cost more than twice as much. Boy was I wrong. The rooms were bigger, there... More
