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. Luis was an excellent host and was happy to help out where at all possible. Like another reviewers said, the hotel is still a bit of a work... More

We had the best room in the hotel, A-15, which had a great view of town, as long as you don't mind the 50 stairs. We got used to it, and enjoyed the exercise. This hotel was very new, so a few problems were being ironed out. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The Verdeazul is about 5 blocks... More

This is a nice hotel, with beautiful views. The best part of the hotel is the owner, Luis. He will make sure you are taken care of the entire time you are there. The rooms are very basic and the beds are hard. There is also a one inch gap between the wall and the windows where the neighboring room... More
