The view is great, location is defenitely what you are paying for, because the hotel itself lacks Cleanness there was some insects in the walls... It was not that many but still for the Price you are paying it is way too bad that this happens, the beds are not confortable... The town is ok but the people is rude,... More

We really like this Hose/Hotel the location couldn't be better, the view from our ocean front room was nice. The service at the hotel was very nice, the person handling our reservation made few mistakes but she apologized and offer a 10% discount so that was good. The breakfast that was included with the room its delicious. The rooms are... More

The hotel was clean and comfortable. It is situated at the quieter end of the main street with lovely views of the port. The main disappointment was that even though we had paid for a room with an ocean view there were none available.

This hotel is in a good location, right on the main strip (if you can call it that not much there). The hotel has 2 nice pools and a restaurant. The alcohol is self serve honor system - you write down what you took. The beer was priced well at $3.50 but the wine was $10 a glass, which was... More

This is a simple but clean hotel on the malecon close to the dock. all the restaurants and tour places are close by within walking distance. has a nice view looking out to wreck bay. A good choice if you are land based in San Cristobal. wifi only available in main area and not in rooms.

Our room on the top floor at Casa Opuntia was lovely. Floor to ceiling windows meant the room was flooded with light during the day, with sweeping views of the stunning water outside. Seals and maringe iguanas frolicked on the pier all day offering entertainment. Breakfast was filling and more than once we were joined by finches who were keen... More

We where first time travelers to Galapagos. Generally, we are mostly used to African and European accomondation standards. Taking this into consideration, we firstlDy where surprised by such an island style of accomondation. Very fast we came to know that this is South America and as such also an exceptional good standard. Growing into the lifestyle of Galapagos, we soon... More

We were on the ground level next to the restaurant and could see over the water. It was a nice / pleasant hotel ... everything was fine, but I wouldn't rave about it. The location at the end of the Malecon was very convenient as we walked up and down early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Wifi... More
