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

Stayed here for 4 nights with my husband while doing day-trips from Puerto Ayora to other islands. Was slightly worried beforehand since I couldn’t find many reviews and thought that the hotel might be a bit too basic for our liking. However, I needn’t have been worried. It is a lovely family-owned place, which has some of the vibes of... More

Good location and pleasant hotel. Stayed there for 5 nights in June 2014. Would certainly recommend it. It is close to the center and sea. Quiet part of Puerto Ayura. Nice staff. Breakfast is nothing special though.

Perfectly located to explore Tortuga Bay – right at the entrance to the trail in fact! They rent snorkel gear for very reasonable prices. Breakfast was delicious, including eggs and fruit. The hotel is clean, pretty, and you feel like you are in a bit of an oasis with the pool located in the center of the hotel. Maria, who... More

The Hotel Santa Fe is in a great location almost at one end of the main street that runs along the water front in Puerto Ayora. It is only 5 minutes walk to the ferry dock and 5 minutes walk from the start of the Tortuga Bay trail. The room was spacious and clean and the central pool area looked... More

This hotel is at a great location probably. One of the closest to Tortuga Bay entrance, but only 2 blocks ~5 minutes from the main street. You can walk pretty much everywhere in town. The rooms are modern looking relatively new with AC and fridge, but I would highly recommend to pay a bit more for a unit that has... More

We really relied on Trip Advisor before our trip to the Galapagos Islands. We took a cruise and opted to stay longer at Puerto Ayora for 2 additional nights (Feb 2014). Santa Fe was a great place, super clean hotel, spacious rooms and great breakfasts in the morning. The only problem is that their neighbor seems to have a rooster... More
