I stayed as single traveler and felt safe and well taken care of...the walk to town is pleasant and safe even when it is dark. I borrowed snorkeling equipment from Harry and he assisted with planning day trips. The breakfast was superb every morning, almost more food than I could eat but somehow I found room for all the delicious... More

I can't thank you enough for your glowing review and unqualified recommendation of the Galapagos Eco-Lodge. Your mention of safety particularly resonated with me. Because Individuals, families and children all stay at the hotel, safety always has been a high priority consideration. Thus we are located in a gated area that is accessible to only hotel guests with keys and... More

We stayed at Galapagos Ecolodge ( 3N hotel $312, Harry is the proprietor). Harry's son, Harry Jr. met us at the airport with a little sign. Lovely room with reliable AC. We did not see Harry because he was away guiding tours. Mrs. Harry was lovely and cooked wonderful breakfasts. We had a super easy time booking with Harry. His... More

Every night when I am away, Lucrecia and I talk and she fills me in on what is happening at the hotel. During your visit, she informed me what delightful guests you were and how much she enjoyed being able to help you out during your stay at the hotel. I wish I had been able to meet you personally...

This comfortable & green lodging, in a beautiful place is carefully presented by Harry, his family and staff. The breakfast served over-looking the town & bay was excellent every day!

We stayed a few days in this hotel on the way to Santa Cruz, it was amazing!! I was there with my wife, the owners were extremely nice and even provided free snorkel gear and laundry service. This is unprecedented in my experience with hotels. I would definitely stay here again.

Galapagos Ecolodge on San Cristobal was amazing! Very clean, helpful, professional, personable, and amazing breakfasts that come with the room. They offered prompt and free (at the time we were there) laundry service. I can't say enough good things about this hostel. If being in the Galapagos isn't good enough for you then staying here will complete the trip. Great... More

This place was awesome! Harry is an amazing host, the place felt like home, and we loved it. He's a native, and everyone on the island seems to know him.

I arrived in San Cristobal by boat and was greeted by Harry, the owner of Eco Lodge.....our boat was late, but he waited an extra hour for us to arrive so he can personally show us to the hotel. It´s hard for me to put into words the amount of detail that went into the hotel and the rooms. Everything... More

The shower was either freezing or scalding hot. The 'hotel' resembled an out of date Las Vegas motel. Breakfast was served with no choice of preference which is great if you like plantain and fried cheese pancake.. The garden is a volcanic rock field with 3m sections of AstroTurf as greenery.. We were woken up every morning at 7am by... More

I feel very badly for putting up this review so late (May 2013). Galapagos Eco Lodge was a wonderful place to stay, but at the time we visited, there were some kinks being worked out (out of hot water, poor internet). From the reviews, it sounds like the Eco Lodge has really blossomed and it certainly deserves all the positivity... More

It's never too late to write a review as helpful and filled with positive reactions such as yours. In the year since you were here, we have indeed made some pretty special additions to the hotel.

Harry and Lucrecia treated us like family. We had wonderful conversations like normal people, not just as guests.

Not only were the accommodations luxurious but the care of the staff and Harry's family were evident. The hotel itself has been built... More
