This is a very nice hotel hidden away in the remote Galapagos Island of Santa Cruz. It had a surprising pool with a walk over bridge in the central courtyard leading to nicely appointed modern, sleek and clean room. The large shower is really a nice touch! No television, no phone and no need for those. You are not in... More

The excellent rating is for the food at the hotel. They provided a 3 meal course that was delicious. The first room they gave me had an air conditioner that was not working and during the summer it was really hot. I changed rooms 3 times... They had a construction and that was noisy during the day. They don't have... More

We travel with a group of students from USA and when we arrived to the hotel they inform us that they will be working in the swimming pool for the next 3 days. When we book the trip with their travel agency (Galextur) they did not tell us that the swimming pool was going to be out of work the... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the attached restaurant. We were in room 2 which overlooked the nicely landscaped pool/courtyard area. The staff was amazing and went out of their way to make our visit special. The only downside was lack of consistent wifi.

Great location in the town - fantastic food - wonderful staff----loved a young woman named Gaby - she was adorable, tired so hard to please us -comfortable room - no TV or room WIFI. Note that Puerto Ayora is well over one hour from the dock from which you take side trips to other islands. We spent too much time... More

We went to this restaurant one night because we were tired of the same old buffet at our hotel. The menu was large and the food was good. I ordered the caprese salad and the coconut fish. Everything was delicious and prepared well. Prices were average for the area.

Location, food, clean pool, clean rooms, this hotel has everything going for them. Staff was friendly & helpful, and the hotel is 5 minutes or less walk from everything in the city. The restaurant they have on site is also very nice. Rooms were spacious and even came with their own air conditioner which was a nice bonus during the... More

We stayed at the Silberstein Hotel for one night before our cruise in the Galapagos. The Silberstein Hotel was adequate however, definitely not worth the $220.00 US that we paid. The breakfast was meager with a very poor selection of items (bread, cereal cheese). WiFi was available only in the very small lobby and was very slow.

We did not stay at the hotel but had a nice meal at the restaurant. The juices were lovely, and the food (soup and some chicken dish) was very good. If we were visiting Puerto Ayora again we would definitely go there again.

Good hotel and value. The wi-fi was very spotty (it was spotty all over the island) but the value was good and the included breakfast was fine. The hotel restaurant is fine for dinner and it's very easy to walk to other restaurants and bars if you want to do so. The desk service was very good and it's easy... More
