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.

I would stay here again ( this is one of the statements I like to see in reviews). We stayed for 6 nights at Pelican Bay and were very satisfied with practically all aspects this property offered. First, the staff is excellent. Sergio, the sales manager, goes out of his way to ensure you have a good experience. After booking... More

I stayed here for 3 nights recently and was very impressed. It was excellent value with a great breakfast. The owner/ manager spoke excellent English & was very helpful. As with all Galapagos accommodation you get a better rate when booking in person rather than over the Internet. Location was also great - very close to the centre of town... More

The hotel is up a side street off the main street that runs along the waterfront and isn't difficult to find. The rooms are clean, it has a pool, and offers a nice (and repetitive) breakfast daily. The room had a refrigerator and a nice bathroom. The a/c was so so but it wasn't too hot and I was usually... More

Hotel Pelican Bay is a nice place to stay if you want to hang around Puerto Ayora for a few days. Walking distance to the Charles Darwin Station and close to the waterfront where you will quickly stumble upon the fishing market where peilcans and sealions hang out looking for a free meal. Hotel has a nice swimmingpool and the... More

This is a lovely, clean, quiet hotel that is a one-minute walk from all the main activities of the town of Puerto Ayora. By Ecuadorian standards, this is an exceptional hotel. The rooms are large and have a small refrigerator, air conditioning, free WiFi access, hot and cold water, breakfast included, and plenty of storage space including drawers. Staff are... More
