This hotel is a disaster, if you pay USD 15 per night is fine, but the average rate is USD 100, the "restaurant" is a place where you have to take an old tray and go to ask for food like in a military school, the rooms are very uncomfortable and extremely noisy, there is a disco just next to...

First off, let me say that I am used to smaller European sized rooms, so I did not find these smaller rooms to be confining. The room was adequate for sleeping and bathing, and the room I stayed in was not near any activity. The internet was useless, which I am sure has been mentioned in other reviews, but I... More

The interner connection provided by the WiFi of the hotel was terrible. Gmail replied that it is sensing a slow connection. Note - the WiFi reception was very strong, it is just that the internet connection is 1995 speed. At the end that was not fixed and a very small discount was offered.

O.K. Avoid rooms 401 ++ above the restaurant and the Disco. Breakfast with lot's of goodies starts at 6:30 prior to your island trips. I stayed 4 nights in room 113 (single bed, nice and clean with small TV - Spanish) the room was below the staircase and flooring to the hotel restaurant (2nd floor), lot's of running school kids...

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
