The place is way too expensive for what it is offering. The rooms and breakfast are absolutely basic. The host did not make us feel welcome at all. It is near the Darwin station but furthest away from any beautiful beaches like Tortuga Bay. To make it short: You can easily find much better for less money.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights for our first stop in the Galapagos and surprisingly we were the only people staying in the hotel. The inn is located about a 4-5 minute walk from the Main Street and is in a quiet area. The rooms are simple, but have AC which is helpful. The wifi is very... More

Rod speaks incredible English and owns a lovely place. From the moment we arrived, Rod went out of his way to help us navigate the best parts of the island, and maximise our time. When we needed some clothes cleaned, he kindly did a load for free. When we left some bags (as we travelled to another island), he kept... More

We had a great time at Mi Caleta. It's tucked back from the main area of Puerto Ayora, but if anything this was an advantage. The room was very nice and clean, with good aircon ( which was really useful). Esther was a delightful host, and offered all the advice/help we could ask for. There's a well stocked and spacious...

We stayed in the room with the kitchen and dining room (room #1). It was very nice indeed for our needs. The beds were comfortable, meticulously clean and there were plenty of necessaries provided in the kitchen, including a nice 5 gallon bottle of fresh water. Laundry service was included and highly efficient. Breakfast was very good! The A/C is... More

Extremely hospitable! The woman who tidies up the rooms did laundry for me, included for free; the young man who makes the breakfast (also included) came an hour earlier to catch me and made what I like to eat! This safe home is in the "Eden" neighborhood! Rodrigo and Esther are hospitality personified!

We learned about Mi Caleta Inn through a friend of a friend, and we are very glad that we did! We knew nothing about Galapagos, or how to get around, and the innkeepers knew that and were very helpful. We emailed a bit before the trip, and the owner, Rod Jacome, set up a taxi for us, with the driver... More

If this is your first time to the Galapogas, Rod's experience and resources are priceless. Literally. I doubt if we would have had the excellent experience we had without Rod's assistance. When Tame Air stranded us in Cuenca instead of continuing to the Galapagos, Rod did not charge us for the night we reserved, despite not cancelling within the timeframe... More

My family and I had an excellent 4 day stay at Mi Caleta Inn. Rod and his wife are two of the nicest people you'll meet, and definitely made our trip so much more comfortable and convenient. They help with organizing all the day excursions after discussing where you want to go/what there is recommended to see. The morning breakfasts... More
