This property has a lovely pool with an open-air breakfast area. The proprietress prepared a delicious, hot breakfast for us after we arrived from a miserable two and a half hour boat ride from Isabela Island. The hotel is very close shopping and restaurants.

My wife and I have mixed feelings about our visit to this hotel, perhaps because our trip to Galapagos was disappointing overall. The hotel is fine for what it is. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was below average compared to other hotels we stayed in. Wifi is slow and doesn't work in the rooms.... More

My friend and I stayed here for a few nights in June. Judy and her family were really helpful in recommending places to go and restaurants to try. They checked in with us to see how our day was and always asked if we needed anything. Breakfast was delicious, too!

The room was spacious with verandah with sea view in distant. However it was very windy and howled very loudly, we did ask to view another room but manageress wasn't prepared to show us so can't comment if the standard rooms are as noisy. Internet is available in reception area. Breakfast was basic. Hotel is handy for Charles Darwin centre... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week this May and enjoyed wonderful hospitality from Rafaela and the staff. Breakfast was delicious, the hotel was clean, the AC was cold, and staff was very helpful in assisting us in finding restaurants and things to do in Puerto Ayora and beyond.

In late April 2015, my wife and I were fortunate to stay at Hotel Gapagos (Casa de Judy) in Puerto Ayora with a tour package Through Galapagos Alternative tours. We were VERY pleased with the accommodations and service at this hotel. The room was on the third floor with a balcony and overlooked part of the preserve and ocean. It... More

A terrific little Boutique bed and breakfast located an easy walk to the center of Puerto Ayora. Rooms are spacious and the view from the upper level rooms is terrific. Rafaela took wonderful care of us on both of our stays there! A small pool is very refreshing after a hot day and breakfast was excellent.

Very attractive, great views of bay. Large rooms, fine breakfast and nice pool. Family run and hospitality was outstanding. We initially came for one night and stayed five. Located on the edge of town, away from the hubbub but an easy walk to town. A great value for the money!

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
