We spent four pleasant nights at this b&b. Great location and comfortable rooms. Elena, manager, welcomed us very well and helped us to orient ourselves in the complicated logistics of galapagos excursions. We were fine and if we return to puerto ayora will return to the casa del lago. Marco

Honestly, I would have given the place a 4 or 5, until Elena started giving us prices for day trips to the other islands. She was anywhere from $15-$45 more per person per ticket. We went through her on a day trip to Floreana and paid $115/person (low season) and asked other couples on the trip what they had paid,... More

Firstable this opinion has a bad translation in Spanish and as a result can be bad interpretation too. But fortunately i can read and speak English that is why i know exactly what this opinion tries to say. I am not the manager of a travel agency, i am the manager of my own hotel, in Galapagos, hotels and travel... More

I'm just back from a swim in a lagoon around the corner from this charming and comfortable hotel. The location is great. Besides the lagoon, we're away from the souvenir shops but close to the port and restaurants. Now, though, it's time to go sit out on the little balcony and look at the flowers.

Our experience at Casa del Lago proved to us that it is indeed possible to find a nice hotel on the Galapagos without any advance booking, even in late July. We walked into the hotel, which is just two streets away from the harbour and were offered 3 nights for the price of 2. And as we arrived at 11... More

Our family spent a week in the delightful Casa del Lago and loved it. The property sits less than five minutes walk from the waterfront,and the colorful two-story Ninfas suite was more than roomy enough for four adults, with firm comfy beds and a kitchenette that came in handy when we had to miss Luz 's delicious breakfast due to...

We had a group from the recent Polynesian Voyaging Canoes stay at an Apartment at Casa del Lago, and we loved it. Elena has become our friend and while we were there she helped us organize our days and made us feel at home. The setting is nice with plants and balconies, making for nice evenings relaxing on the balcony.
