At less than half the price of similar hotels on Santa Cruz, Casa Mabell was by far our favourite accommodation on the Galapagos Islands. We had the downstairs room (s) and were very happy indeed. A very comfortable bed with cable TV, fridge and a piping hot shower. Unlimited fresh drinking water and kitchen facilities are upstairs. There is even... More

I visited Casa Mabell with my husband and 3 kids. We had a room on the first floor it had 2 rooms one master with AC and the other with fan. There were 2 restrooms which was nice since it was 5 of us. TV, and the fastest WiFi we experienced in Galapagos. The price was excellent! The room connects... More

We were busy with day trips and exploring the island every day so we didn't need a fancy resort. Casa Mabell provided us with a clean place to sleep and shower that is extremely convenient to the town. It's right in the action (not that there is much!) and about a block away from the waterfront/pier. We found it on... More

Came with family of 6. Mercedes and her husband were very hands off but always checked to make sure everything was good whenever we crossed paths. The wifi was solid, the beds were comfy, it was always clean when we returned and overall it was just one of the best stays while in Ecuador for me.

My family and I stayed at Casa Mabell for 2 nights. The location is very close to the pier (less than a minute walk), you're right in the heart where all the restaraunts and souvenir shops are. There's a bakery nearby for morning pastries. The owner is very friendly and the place is very clean. The only con I would... More

Casa Mabell is located two short blocks from the main pier in San cristobal. There's good pastries and restaurants within that same walking distance and lots of tour places to book your excursions. Town is small so you can walk from the airport to casa mabell in 15 minutes(we did). They keep it clean and were very friendly with us.... More

My husband and i stayed here for 5 nights, it was probably the best place we stayed in galapagos, the room was clean and comfortable and the shared bathroom was right next to our room and always empty. The kitchen had every thing we needed and helped keep our costs down. The owner was friendly enough but not too involved... More

We walked into 5 other places that had rooms and then arrived here and it was a no brainer. The rooms are huge and for $20 per night per person it's a steal. We are in room 1 and it has its own kitchen. Super clean. Great WiFi that works in the room. Hot showers. The lady who runs it... More

We stayed at Casa Mabell a couple different times while spending more than a week on the island--we were visiting by land and spent 3 weeks on the islands total without a cruise. This was by far the best place we stayed. The room, downstairs with the living area and separate bedroom, was fantastic. Comfortable bed, ceiling fans, a/c, hot... More

This place is an absolute treasure and if you are coming to San Cristobal this is where you should stay. The owner is an absolute delight, deposited her limited English she is so kind and literally greeted us smiling with open arms. She went and bought us our ferry tickets to Santa Cruz then walked us to the wharf to... More
