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 hotel is conveniently located with a nice view out to the bay. It is close to the shops, restaurants and dock. The room was clean, fresh and bright. The staff have been simply amazing. The restaurant serves a lovely breakfast and dinner, you will not be hungry. Special thanks to Santiago and Alex for all their help during my... 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

Meals were excellent and we were pleasantly surprised by size of room. I actually preferred this ground floor room to the balcony rooms. It was easy to access and due to the small guest size, privacy was not an issue even though the dining area was right outside the door. Meals are lovely with fresh squeezed juice, high quality ingredients,... More

The upper floor balcony rooms were extremely pretty and bright. Lots of storage and room. Breakfast was good but limited options each day. Staff were very friendly. Literally just a few feet from the shore and tons of sea lions. I am removing a star because it had very limited hot water for showers, but is still probably the nicest... More

The rooms were very simply but quite big and bright, and with a balcony and hamock. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was simple, but with delicious bread, good coffee and eggs served to your favor. Breakfast service was qite slow, as usual in Ecuador ;-) Best location: Close to harbour/pier with all the many sea lions, close to restaurants. Laundry service... More
