We had an excellent service of the staff and enjoyed ourselves very well in the friendly little hotel. The hotel could not be better situated, only 2-3 minutes to the main street and the pier where we our boat... More

After 3 visits to surf the Galapagos, I have stayed at the Opuntia twice. The view looks at one of the best surf spots on the island. Try to get one of the 2 rooms on the top floor, where the view is perfect. The location of the hotel is close to the pier and downtown. The staff can assist... More

the hotel is in a great location, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. The dining area is outdoors with a view of the ocean. Our room was large and quaint. I really loved staying here and recommend it to friends.

My elderly dad and I stayed here three nights. This hotel is very well located, right in the heart of San Cristobal's main tourist areas and pier. You can walk to all the stores as well as the Interpretation Center, and a couple of small beaches. The pier where the cruise ships come in is a few minute walk. Even... More

He was also agreeable to serving our breakfast outside normal hours when our tour left too early for the regularly scheduled breakfast included... More

We stayed one night Before going on a one week Galapagos Cruise. Excellent location towards the end of the waterfront promenade. Nice staff. Rooms and beds medium quality. No elevator. Hot water only occassionally. Breakfast a bit slow but OK. WiFi functions on and off close to the Reception.

We spent three nights at the Casa Opuntia Galapagos in Saint Cristobal Island before boarding the Cormorant Catamaran on our island hopping through the Galapagos archipelago. The Casa was very unique in perfect location. We were able to walk the ocean front community, the cultural center, and the hide-away beaches of the sea lions. The breakfast and dinner were excellent... More
