This hotel is in a superb location right on the promenade. Free WiFi, and towels available from the poolside to use if going out. From our comfortable bed, we woke up looking right out over the bay. The room was clean and the staff were friendly but.... The bathroom and bedroom were tired looking and slightly dilapidated. The bathroom in... More

I stayed one night here with some friends. The service was okay and rooms were a bit shabby for the price. There was no hot water at all and the A/C did not work well. The whole place was kind of run down a bit and the pool was a complete joke. The thing that merits one star here is... More

Everything about this hotel was good. The location is perfect. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is very nice and accommodating. Having the availability of Beer, Wine, Coffee, Soda etc. (on the Honor System) was appreciated. We had a very nice stay and would definitely return.

Best location on the Boardwalk. We got room 2 which is on top level with ocean view and hammock in balcony. The view was absolutely beautiful with views of the pier, and sounds of sea lions. Just minutes from the ferry, shops, and restaurants. Hot water really does work in shower. Use the left knob and just slightly open it... More

Overall not a bad place but when paying $150/night I did expect hot water for a shower. Nope, never had a hot shower over the three days that I stayed here. My friends stayed in a place at $60/night and had how water. I cannot recommend this place.

This hotel is located right on the waterfront, near the end of the main road. This means your views over the nearby sandy bay are excellent. You can easily hear the sea lions from your bedroom. Our room was on the top floor at the front of the building with a little balcony and hammock. The room is quite bland,... More

San Cristobel is an amazing little town, with seals just hanging out anywhere where there is shade. This hotel was in an awesome location right by the water and the view from the eating area was great. We stayed there one night before our dive live aboard and then one night on our return.

We stayed here for 2 days and have no complaints about this hotel. Staff was friendly, they had a Fantastic breakfast with homemade juices,granola and yogurt plus more. Other meals here were also great. The rooms all had air conditioning and there were several small pools on the grounds. I didn't use the pools but they looked nice and clean.

This was brilliant, it was walking distance from the collection point for the end of the tour for everyone to return to the airport for their onward flights. I wanted to spend a few days relaxing before we returned to the mainland to catch onward flights to Peru. This turned out to be an act of genius on my part,... More
