The staff at this lodge made the stay great. The manager, Elizabeth is excellent. We were charged a fee we were not suppose to pay and she got our money refunded immediately. Rafael and Eddie were great hosts and our naturalist guide, Juan was the best. We enjoyed our stay, the only complaint was that there were no directions for... More

The lodges on Santa Cruz and Isabella are nicely appointed and some of the outings, once the management got a grip and tried to deliver what we were promised, were delightful. The scheduled pre outing briefings never materialised so we missed out on details of animal life etc until almost the end of the trip, the guide spoke inadequate English,... More

Thought this darling lodge was the best accommodation that I experienced on a recent trip to Ecuador and Peru, but then they went way above and beyond the call of duty for me. I managed to leave my Kindle behind in the hotel room and was not able to come back and get it before I had to leave for... More

Very nice place with unexpected visitors. If you will like to have breakfast close to Sea Lions, this is the place. The staff is very attending and friendly. Tours are a plus in this hotel with normal rates not excessive. If you want to be relax, out the city noise this is the place.

The location, our guide and the setting were the only reason I gave this place a two star instead of one. The food, service, and planning were terrible. We visited the Red Mangrove Lodge in March 2014. Upon our arrival we received not one but three different itineraries. Even with the various itineraries they still did not match what we... More

This was a lovely relaxing place to spend our time in the Galapagos Islands. The food was excellent and the views from the deck area amazing! Breakfast with a sea lion at your feet is surreal - this place is a whole world away from reality. The hotel is next to the Darwin Research Centre and there are some great... More

Thank you SO very much for helping to make our vacation, to the Galápagos Islands, a magnificent experience!! We loved our room, next to the sea lions, when we returned from Isabella!!! I'm well aware of how a travel agency can help to make or break your treasured time away from home and Red Mangrove truly helped to enhance an... More

If you get the chance to stay here, definitely go for it. I have never stayed anywhere so comfortable, and the place is simply divine. There are sealions sunning themselves on the deck/terrace area. This means that you can sit and eat your delicious breakfast whilst watching the Galapagos wildlife, very relaxed just a couple of metres from you. Absolutely... More

My only complaint would be the very erratic internet otherwise our stay was perfect. We had stayed one night before going to Isabela and there was a problem with the toilet. When we returned after our stay on Isabela we were given an upgrade to a beautiful room with two balconies and a huge bathroom. The sleeping comfort is excellent... More

We stayed in both the Diver's Lodge and the main hotel. The Diver's Lodge was very comfortable with everything that we needed. The main lodge was lovely with views over the ocean and a lovely deck. The food and restaurant staff were great . They catered to our every need and were so friendly. The front desk staff and manager... More
