I recently had the opportunity to stay here for a few days prior to and than after a trip to the Galapagos islands. I found a friendly and helpful staff. The grounds were nicely decorated with the images of the local marine life. The owner Lucretia was particularly kind and helpful. This was my first time to Ecuador and San... More

Great wifi, which is exceptional in Galapagos. I mean it's nothing like mainland service but I could access all the sites and upload some pics which honestly is impossible in other wifi areas. Harry picked us up from the airport, showed us to the room and taught us how to use the air conditioner. Breakfast was great every morning and... More

It was just great to read your review and I so appreciate your comments about the wifi situation. Everywhere in Galapagos the internet can be a "sketchy" and slow situation because it's nothing like what most of our guests from around the world have come to expect at home. Thank you for understanding that and making the point that wifi... More

We spent a week here and enjoyed it very much. The room was clean and comfortable. I particularly enjoyed sitting in the hammock in the shade reading from the selection of books available. Lucrecia was helpful with advice and suggestions, and her breakfasts kept us going all day.

I had communicated with Harry and booked our room long before our arrival. I confirmed he week before we left with Harry.

I am terribly disappointed that you did not have an optimal experience while at the Galapagos Eco-Lodge because of having to rush for the dock in the morning. Thank you for taking the time to share your reaction with us. This is certainly not typical of the service at the Galapagos Eco-Lodge. Happily, your constructive input has paved the way... More

The owner Harry is wonderful. The hotel is a little further from the main beach front streets but is an easy 10 minute walk or a 1 USD taxi ride. The main benefit of this is that it is quiet. There is some building work around but it didn't disturb us at all. The hotel is brand new and very... More

Impressed with Harry the owner from beginning to end. Being our first stop in the Galapagos we felt relaxed and well taken care of. Our first day was a guided walking tour around the islands. Having just a partial day this was a great way to start. Harry then arranged the best snorkeling day we have ever experienced... at Kicker... More

The only way to respond to your experience is with my sincere apology for your inconvenience. However, I do want to clarify what actually happened in this most unusual situation.
