To begin with the positive side: Most rooms are kind of spacious (not too small) and really clean - the bathrooms are o.k., everything was functioning. The breakfast is a disaster, just forget it. The restaurant of the hotel kind of does not exist, but around the corner you find several good alternatives. In the hotel there is no service... More

Room #5 was spacious! There was plenty of room even though it contained 3 beds. The beds were very comfortable and the cleaning staff kept the rooms very clean with daily cleaning. The air conditioner kept the room very cool, although we did shut the bathroom door due to a screened window in the bathroom. The bathroom was large and... More

The hotel is nice, and rustic, but it didn't blow me away. There are several indoor pools you can make use of and wifi. No hair dryers. The room was simply furnished and had air conditioning. There was a little patio you could sit out on to take advantage of the view if you are lucky enough to get a... More

Stayed here as part of a tour group for two nights. The large lobby is pleasant and inviting and features the dining area where a buffet breakfast is served in the morning. There is also a small pool and a pool table. The rooms are decent sized and fairly clean, though the bathroom had several broken tiles and some mildew.... More

We stayed in Grand Hotel Lobo de Mar for 3 nights altogether during our trip to Galapagos and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were a decent size, very clean, had air conditioning and ours also had a fridge (although I know some don't). Our room faced the ocean and it was very quite at night aside from the sounds... More

Located two blocks from the Pier, and close to shops & restaurants. The hotel is basic, but clean and, considering its location to the main street, it's very quiet. There is free WiFi, but it's only available in the lobby, not in the rooms. The shower had really good pressure and the A/C worked very well. Breakfast was simple, but... More

This hotel is nothing to write home about but for tourists quite useful. Good-sized room, decor could stand a revamp, ours had a balcony with only a part (small part) seaview. The wifi was almost non-existent, but the staff friendly. The location was perfect.

We stayed there 2 nights between our cruise and our stay on Isabela. We had reserved directly at the front desk before going on the cruise and the staff was really friendly and helpful. They showed us the room before we decided on staying there. There are 2 pools at the hotel, one almost in the lobby and one at... More

I stayed here with a few friends on a trip. The location is great and you can see / hear the ocean from the hotel. The rooms were fairly big and clean. They also included a TV, which was nice because one of the days I stayed there I got very sunburnt and couldn't move without being in pain, so... More
