As part of our study abroad program to the Galapagos Islands, we have stayed at the Galapagos Hotel twice in the past two years, each time for a month long period. The accommodations have been good and the staff has been excellent and very friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we have very much enjoyed our time there.... More

I stayed during the month of February with my friend for 3 nights. From the very beginning I found the service to be extremely good. All of the staff was helpful, I was in Room 12 which was very nice. Overall, I'd say the service and the location were a big plus for me. If you're looking for a quiet... More

One of the cheaper options in the area. Staff were welcoming and friendly enough. The room we booked was basic but clean. I woke twice during the night to find an insect trying to crawl in my hair (two different ones), which were easily transferred outside. The island is full of animals. Simple cooked breakfast was included. Wifi was included.... More

We stayed here only one night because our other hotel, Galapagos dreams, overbooked. So we got a great deal ($20 pp) and a room on the top floor, king sized bed, ac. We didn't eat breakfast as we had an early boat. The only thing I would change is the white curtains, while lively and tropical, don't provide much protection... More

We stayed here as part of a tour we booked. It was a good place to stay, convenient walking distance to town. It was clean and the staff were quite helpful. They organised breakfast for us early on the days we left before the normal breakfast hours. It was quite a challenge communicating with staff with my limited Spanish but... More

We were given a triple room for a double once we checked in. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bed was big and we even got a little balcony. The location is a bit far from the city center but it is a nice walk. There is also plenty of taxis at 1 dollar each way.

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights in Santa Cruz and it had it booked as part of a package. The facilities are simple but rooms are clean, have decent a/c and nice breakfast. Location was also nice, a quiet street but not too far from the port and restaurants. The pool was awful and dirty, but on average... More

While in Santa Cruz we stayed at the Casa Natura, which is changing its name to Galapagos Island Hotel. This is a very well kept hotel. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. The staff is friendly. They have a nice pool and pool-side bar. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Puerto Ayora.
