Casa Natura, also known as Galapagos Island Hotel, has large rooms, comfy beds, but terrible air conditioning. This is not some backwater, but the most populous town in the Galapagos, and our time there was spent in an uncomfortable, stuffy room. Why advertise AC when there is nothing resembling it? The teenagers at the desk seemed supremely bored with our... More

Stayed three nights, rooms spotlessly clean, friendly staff with some english. Breakfast is fairly basic (and never ready at 7 in the morning). Pool had water that was not very inviting. Came to the hotel after dinner one night and wanted a beer, but could find no staff present..

If you are traveling to enjoy the nature and be relax... this is not the place. There was no one to control the people "kids" that were there, rooms were very basic, like a barn like. Doors were very cheap and TV old (Not LCD). I understand that you go to Galapagos not to be in the room, but when... More

A basic no-frills room that was kept very clean as well as the rest of the casa. Excellent buffet breakfast served from 7 to 9 each morning, and earlier by arrangement when we had a booked tour that left at 7 am. I agree with the other reviews: very convenient to town (about a 10 minute easy walk). Front desk... More

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
