If you want room service, a 24-hour concierge and buffet meals, this is not the place for you. However, if you want a home away from home, this is your place. These are clean and cute little cottages equipped with fully functional kitchens, TV and air conditioning. They are located on a quiet street, walking distance to the town of... More

Galápagos cottages are comprised by four houses with a middle pool. I came on a family trip to galapagos on a group of 5. We stayed in the 3 floor house that is honestly the best. At a reasonable price you can easily fit 7 people and go up to 10 if you insist but for 5 it couldn't be... More

TipTop diving used this location earlier, but have now moved to different facilities (July 2014). The cottages have two floors with a fully functional kitchen, a breakfast counter and sofa on the ground floor and a bedroom and a balcony on the first floor. Two bathrooms and plenty of space. The cottages are located around a backyard with a pool... More

The cottage was beautiful. It had two levels and a fully functional kitchen. It was wonderful to spend the day scuba diving and then be able to prepare our meals while enjoying a bottle of wine. The staff were amazing and more than helpful at all times. We would certainly recommend this as a prime site in Puerto Ayora.

I can't say enough about the hospitality I received at Galapagos Cottages and Tip Top dive. Even prior to my arrival Jorge eased my mind about traveling solo in the Galapagos and at the same time obtaining my PADI open water certification. Jorge helped arrange transportation with Pancho which went flawlessly even with a bit of a language barrier between... More

The hotel is small, but the rooms are great, clean and comfortable specially for scuba divers or people without any experience that want to dive, because there is a dive center in the same area of the hotel (dive@tiptopdiving.com); therefore, they can teach you and organize a trip to have the best experience under water. I have a very good... More
