A very nice, quiet hotel at one end of the town. Very clean room. Excellent service, the staff was friendly and very helpful when we asked about local attractions. Located on the bay/water, we had a magnificent view. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. Fresh, drinkable water available.

True to others reviews, this place has a beautiful view of the ocean - we stayed in room 2, on the third floor and the views were indeed breathtaking. We had a hammock on our balcony which we could rest in soaking up the view and sea lions (who are quiet noises at night!) The rooms are basic, the bathroom... More

Fantastic location with view over ocean, close to airport and easy for trips. We stayed here at the beginning of our trip to Galapagos arranged by Activities Abroad.

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. We were happy to have upgraded to a 3rd floor room with a balcony and beautiful view of the beach, ocean, sea lions. Nice breakfast (buffet) included. Room was basic, but keep in mind that this is a remote location! Internet access is iffy, which is true throughout the Galapagos. Location is... More

The location of the property is fabulous and the the wait staff is so friendly! The hotel itself needs some help. Junk around the pool, worn rooms. Management/owners spent money embroidering the towels and putting their logo on the highly overpriced bottles of wine (neither of which are important to me as a traveler) rather than into the property itself....

My family and I had an incredible experience staying at Casa Opuntia Galapagos. Everything was first class from the food to the room acamodations to our daily adventures. The guiding was top notch and the tours with Ecuador Adventures were incredible to say the least. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is considering visiting the Galapagos Islands.
