My boyfriend & I stayed here as part of an overall package with Galápagos Alternative. Hotel is a 10 minute walk to town. Taxi can bring you there for $1 if you prefer there is a park on the corner with basketball court and swings and zip line for kids. Rooms were clean, large, and ours had a beautiful view... More

We stayed in this place as a packaged tour with Galapagos Alternative so we didn't choose the hotel. I guess the price for stay in this place is not high, so don't expect luxury from the hotel because it is not. I like the hotel. The room has an amazing view of the harbour. It's spacious and clean. The wi-fi... More

We booked with them through Galapagos Alternatives as their moderately priced option. We liked that it was run by a local family. We were a group of 7 that needed 4 rooms. We got the 3rd floor rooms and everyone was very happy with them. The location is great, a 3 minute walk from the main road. I think it's... More

Upon arriving we were told the room was not available. They presented our alternate room as if it was a "step up"..... NOT hardly. As we waited for the "new" room to be cleaned, we witnessed one employee trying to throw OUR towels up to the 3rd floor for the maid to catch! Of course they landed on the ground;... More

This hotel was very conviently located within walking distance to town . The neiborhood had a basketball court located very close . My son played with the locals and had a very enjoyable stay . I was very satisfied with the hotel for South America and the price. I would compare it to a Days Inn in the U.S. breakfast... More

Hotel was out of the way and long walk to harbor. Room reserved was not available. Bathroom was not clean from last guest. After asking to have bathroom cleaned I was offered some cleaner and brush to do myself. Finally someone came up and did a poor job cleaning. Breakfast was hamburger buns toasted with scrambled egg and unripe fruit... More

My daughter and I stayed here last April as part of our Galapagos Alternative package. It was in a perfect location just far enough away from the "main strip". Our room was bright and clean with a nice balcony. The breakfast was delicious each morning and we enjoyed our coffee in the beautiful little garden.

I've been caveating my Galapagos hotel reviews with a note that I booked a 9-day tour and did not know the hotels (or the room rates) as part of the overall package, so I did not have any preconceived notions. That being said, this hotel was the final part of our journey and was the perfect place to end as... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights during our visit to the Galapagos. Our room was simple but clean and we had a fantastic view of the mangroves from our balcony. Judy and the rest of the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. It's located in a good location was very quiet even on New Years eve!
