A little bit disappointing. A friendly welcome and a spacious main room with funky decor and very necessary air-con. Small bathroom not quite as pleasant, although perfectly functional and clean. Flaking paint on ceiling and bathroom wall, tape wrapped around shower curtain rail, flimsy room door and lock (Room 1 - the only one with a sliding door), although felt... More

We stayed here 3 nights . The room was spacious and clean , however bath as well as toilet had no separation from the room itself. This was really strange and not convenient. If we were to pay for this room about 40 dollars we were probably be happy with it ... But since we paid almost twice , we... More

She was so helpful - providing a full briefing when we arrived including maps and complimentary drinks. Whenever we needed help during our stay she went out of her way to assist. The rooms are very spacious and... More

This is a nice place to stay for a trip to puerto ayora. Host was very friendly... Did not speak English, but most people don't. Very short walk to great restaurants and quick walk to beaches. My only problem was no breakfast included. Right around the corner you can find some great spots for any meal though.

We really enjoyed our stay at the El Bambú Galapagos Inn in Puerto Ayora on the Island of Santa Cruz. This is a newly opened place on the west edge of town in a quiet neighborhood, but within a 5 minute walk to the Main Street and about 10 minutes to the docks. The rooms are very clean with their...

This is a small hotel offering comfortable rooms at a decent price. It is located close to the entrance to Tortuga Playa and directly above some public tennis and basketball courts. Sabastian and his staff were very responsive when we had needs, the rooms are spacious and clean, it is very quiet (with the delightful exception of children´s laughter in... More
