The rooms are very basic but clean and includes a small refrigerator. The bathroom is very small but the shower had great water pressure! Breakfast was included every morning and was a great start to our day- it included scrambled eggs, basket of bread, fresh juice, and fresh fruit. The location and price of this hotel is what convinced me... More

The Pelican Bay feels like a Greek hotel in the 1980s. Clean enough but basic and in need of a good lick of paint. We were initially told that a room we had booked with a safety deposit box was not available but pushing harder suddenly found a room. After that hiccup service was friendly and helpful. Small pool with... More

This hotel has a wonderful location near the fishermen's wharf. The breakfast was made fresh, guests just went to the dining area and asked for it cooked the way they wanted it with fresh fruit and juices provided. The staff were always most helpful in giving advice and directions, fresh water always available and my room was large. The pool,... More

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.)
