I can't fault this hotel at all. It is extremely clean and well looked after by the family who run and own it. The rooms are large and nicely decorated. The bed is comfy, and the wifi reasonably fast (fast enough to write this review). You can hire snorkeling equipment (3$ a day for fins). However, I would book this... More

Considering that in the Galapagos islands the number of hotels is small and mostly there are hostels, this facility is reasonable. Rooms are clean, have air conditioning, and breakfast is regular. It's also very well located in a quite area which is close to most tourist agencies and transportation. My main drawback is that the rooms are so close that... More

Hotel Santa Fe is a relatively small property located only a few blocks from the downtown area in Puerto Ayora. The hotel is quiet and extremely clean. The owners pay attention to the smallest detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I would be very pleased to stay at the Santa Fe again.

Rooms were nice and clean, and the location provided nice amenities such as beach towels for day use on request, and they had a community area stocked withe coffee and tea. Also they provided free cold water so you didn't need to buy bottled water if you have something like a camel back. The staff were very good at letting... More

Great location. 4 blocks from the main avenue. 450mts from the entrance from Tortuga Bay. Pretty secure, clean, organize and clean. The AC works well. The team is really great, helpful, I reccomend it for your stay at Puerto Ayora.

This is a small, family run hotel which is very well kept overall. The rooms are large and have good AC, and nicely appointed bathrooms with good water pressure and hot water. Suites have a decent kitchen which would serve you well for a long stay. You can easily walk to the restaurants and Port area. They run an extensive... More

My husband and I had an amazing time in Galapagos and Hotel Santa Fe was a great place to stay! The staff was courteous and the cleaning crew left everything spotless day after day. Breakfast was always delicious. The location of the Hotel was great, close to the Parque San Francisco, Charles Darwin street and the entrance to the breathtaking... More

Stayed two nights before departing on our cruise. Super relaxed, comfortable and clean. Coffee, breakfast, great hosts. Location was very good. Quick walk to the center of town and the grocery store. Perfect place to rest.

Wonderful little hotel! Great breakfast included and nice hosts. Little pool to take a dip in right in the middle. A very short walk to beaches and all the fantastic street food. They have the best shower I have used yet. You will see what I mean when you travel here.... Water pressure is terrible. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 5 nights during our trip to the Galápagos Islands. First of all due to a mix up on the booking site (nothing to do with the hotel) we were upgraded to a suite for no extra cost and the hotel staff were ever so apologetic. The hotel itself and the rooms are spotlessly clean. They are cleaned... More
