Stayed here for 2 nights in Aug'14, based on TripAdvisor reviews, and it was one of the few places taking reservations, though arriving there it seemed every hotel had plenty of empty rooms and you could walk-up anywhere and get a great deal. I had a "seaview" room, which was simple but spacious and even had a couch. A/C worked... More

We should have written this a long time ago. Me, my wife and our two children stayed in this hotel for a week in July 2011(Correction: not 2013!). For our family, what makes a holiday enjoyable is the care, friendship and help from staff. Luis, the hotel owner, has all these. He is a Very polite, friendly and helpful person... More

It is located within walking distance to the main street in town and to the Darwin Research Center. The owner is a friendly and wonderful man who helped arrange taxis and tours. The toilets and shower were a bit of an issue, but I think that is standard across Galapagos. There are no luxury hotels. The breakfast was simple but... More

Stayed here for five nights, both with daughter and on my own. Rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast same as in other hotels. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly and always willing to help with any requests. Sea views from higher floors.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Verde Azul with our top-floor room looking over the town and out to the harbor. The owner was helpful and very pleasant, including arranging a taxi tour to Los Gemelos and searching for us during a power-outage to help us find our way home. Unfortunately, the power outage affected his water pump and... More

Basic B&B, 4 blocks from the main strip. We ended here as everything else was full, but were positively surprised as the service was excellent ( owner did everything he could to please), and the rooms were basic but clean. Some troubles with the bathroom and shower. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, but again they are trying... More

This hotel was arranged for us by Galapagos Alternative. We couldn't have been happier with it. There were three of us traveling, two adults & one thirteen year old. Our room was clean, spacious, and had a very nice view. The location was perfect for explorations into town. We felt very safe there and the owner and his wife were... More

This hotel has some positive aspects: his owner is nice (but just him, as his wife is definetly unpleasant), is logistically convenient and the size of the rooms, but that's all! The room's forniture is very simple (in one room that I saw and didn't choose there was neither the wardrobe) and surely with a low attention to the manteinance... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights with my mother and sister at the end of a Galapagos cruise. The rooms are clean and spacious and we all slept very well.
