I stayed here with a group in February, and found it generally adequate for its price class (the group trip was on a tight budget) - especially as everything is fairly expensive in Galápagos … as one might expect for a place 600 miles offshore. We stayed there for a few nights mid-week … which, perhaps was the reason we... More

the noise caused by the discotheque is terrible, I claimed in reception but they said is the discotheque from the hotel, so there was nothing they could do. People were not kind and didnt care what was happening. Also the drunk people made a lot of noise screaming outside the discotheque. the breakfast wasnt nice, you can have something better... More

I stayed here in March 2013. They had dinner on-site which was good food (home made flavor). They also had a pool on the property. I had an issue with my toilet which was promptly resolved. The bathroom was a bit cramp in my room, however, my dad's room had a much more spacious bathroom. Overall it was a fine.... More

The hotel layout was appealing. Nice outdoor lounge to gather in and chat. Our stay included food, which I thought was pretty good. The room was minimal, but fine for me. What I didn’t like was the noise. I went to bed early the first night, because I was exhausted from travel. My exhaustion, however; didn’t help me sleep through... More

The hotel is well located and clean. Accomodations are very simple. Restrooms are small in the rooms. If you are looking for comfort, this is not the place. Overall it is an OK place to stay, but simple. Service is OK, for example, the air conditioning in our room did not work the first night. We reported this and next... More

This hotel caters to groups. We were part of a group and were treated well. The meals didn't vary a whole lot, but they were tasty and you could go back for seconds, if still hungry. The rooms were very small, but clean. The rooms near the Discotique were quite noisey at night, avoid them. The pool was very warm... More

After visiting several islands in the Galapagos Archipielago, you may end up in the island of SantaCruz, which is the closest to the airport of Baltra. This hotel offered an excellent solution for our stay and helped us to arrange a couple of island tours as well. It is very well located in the south end of the island, thus... More

The room was okay however the noise levels were terrible. A disco was going on in the building or just outside. I was woken at 6am by chairs scraping on the dining room floor below, oh continuously. I think this is an expensive hotel for what you get. The pool was also very murky, breakfast was poor and the attendent... More

We stayed for one night with expenses paid by LAN, since our flight was oversold. The first room they gave us smelled bad, so we asked to change rooms. The second and third rooms the AC didn't work. Rooms are old and look dirty. I very rarely write poor reviews, but this hotel crossed the line. Avoid it if you... More
