I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and really enjoyed my stay. It is close to everything. It is quiet as off the main street and the staff is very friendly, especially front desk agent Louisa. Breakfast is a generous enough and in a very pleasant dining room. Bathrooms are incredible spacious. As is typical in the Galapagos, you... More

I stayed here in july. The room was clean and an of end of corridor room so spacious. Unfortunately next to lots of rooms with up to 3 beds in. It was school holidays in Ecaudor and the hotel was packed with up to 60 kids, screaming, running around wet from the pool up to there rooms, when they all... More

We have just returned from the Galapagos where we spent 2 separate nights in this hotel. We were in the same rooms both times which were basic but functional. The beds were dirty and there was a lack of pillows. The fittings were generally in need of some repair as was the case throughout the hotel. The service was in... More

Dont chose this hotel whatever you do!! During our stay the place was packed with a big group of 40 screaming badly mannered ecudaorian children and their bleak mothers and leaders. Total madness!! Obviously the hotel needed cash so they let anybody in disregarding the comfort of the rest of the full paying guests

Overall a good experience. Once settled in room I noticed the mold smell that comes from air conditioners in humid areas. I went down to front desk, explained my severe allergy to mold and within 3 min had a maintenance man cleaning it. I awoke the next day free from any stuffiness I would normally have. We were able to... More

I stayed here on a recent trip to Santa Cruz as part of a package deal. For that reason I can't discuss the price but I can discuss the hotel itself. The positives: I've stayed at several hotels on the islands and I found this one to be particularly nice. The rooms are comfortable with soft beds and nice pillows.... More

We didn't enjoy our stay at the hotel at all. Especially not for that price. The swimming pool was filthy as well as the rooms. The included breakfast was a joke and the staff was neither helpful nor friendly. The only good thing about the hotel is its location and the view over the harbor. We checked out after three... More

We stayed four days in Galapagos islands. The Island itself is great, wow, amazing. The hotel is located near the sea, which is great. you can go on the rocky beach and see a lots of craps and marine iguanas. Cleanliness in the hotel is OK and the service is fine. We had a package deal with breakfast and dinners,... More

Very good location, terrible rooms, bad food, if you can spend 100usd more go to another hotel do not choose Lobo de Mar

Liars and Thieves……I can’t stand them. I accidently forgot to take my charging cell phone when I left the room. I went back for it and the front desk person told me it’s too late you already check out. I said it doesn’t matter it is still my phone. I asked to go back to the room and look with... More
