Sergio the manager provided excellent service throughout the nearly one week that I stayed at Hotel Pelican Bay. It started with a friendly email before I arrived that very usefully informed me of the complicated path from the airport to the hotel via a bus, ferry and taxi. I was glad to have him arrange a driver to meet me... More

Visited as a large party of 22 staying over a week on a diving holiday. Rooms were clean, well maintained but basic -but was exactly what we wanted. Breakfast consisted of fruit salad, pancakes and juices and was more than adequate. Staff friendly and always smiling. Better than expected.

We stayed here as part of a group and personally really liked it. Great location near the main street but reasonably quiet, very close to the fish market with the pelicans & sea lions. We had a safe in our room but routinely left valuables out that we couldn't fit in there and had no problems, in fact I left... More

I left a wallet in the pocket of a shirt on a hanger with $80 because there was no safe. When I returned that evening, there was only $50. The management was most unhelpful. Stay away from the restaurant under the windmill around the corner. The drinks are horrible and the service slow.

The hotel is located approximately 45 minutes taxi ride from the dock. The cost for the taxi was $15. This hotel is your pretty basic hotel with basic amenities, a bed, fridge and television which we never turned on. The room looked clean but the furniture smelled moldy. At least the bed sheets were clean and the pillows were soft... More

We stayed at this hotel for our first night in the Galapagos Islands. The pre arranged taxi met us at the ferry terminal and all of the staff were helpful. Great location, very near to the restaurants and close to one of our favourite sights. The pool was refreshingly clean and the rooms were great. Breakfast was adequate. There is... More

When given I choice in Puerto Ayora, I always choose Pelican Bay. Very pretty, friendly owner family and staff, great breakfast, comfortable, totally close to everything! (Half a block from the windmill.)

I had a wonderful 6 night stay here. The room was large but basic, air co worked well, grounds were clean and well kept, staff friendly, fun and helpful, and breakfast very good. It's right in town, 1/2 block off the one lane main road, near the fish market, and quiet ( except on Saturday night when the local dance... More

We stayed here two nights. Compared to other hotels it was reasonably priced (for Galapagos more exp than mainland). Our room was large though in comparison the bathroom was very small. The staff were very friendly and the location was very good. I would stay here again

I was traveling alone, and I felt comfortable most of the time. The bed was hard, facilities okay. The room was clean, but very stark. Breakfast was good, and you could buy a beer from the staff if you wanted.
