In addition to what others have said about the pleasant and helpful staff, the spacious rooms, the convenient location, and the quiet neighborhood, I´d like to add two things… When we arrived at Red Mangrove our ears told us this was no ordinary place. We heard the barking of a sea lion, and it was close. Exploring around the edge... More

We stayed at the Red Mangrove Aventura Lodge two times during our trip to the Galapagos; the first one was more of a typical hotel room; the second room was more of a 'suite' - and both rooms were 'as expected' for the type of room they were. The shower floors in the first room were treacherously slippery - I... More

Comfortable accommodations in several buildings around the open air lobby and restaurant area. Large deck overlooking a harbour where the marine iguanas and sea lions loll much of the day. Sometimes the sea lions climb aboard a boat moored just offshore as they relax, and sometimes they are actively frolicking in the water nearby. Other fauna can also been seen... More

We spend the first and the last night on the "Darwin's Triangle" tour in this lodge. The first room was quite roomy with terrible rock hard beds. We had an aircon which made a terrible noise, reported that to the front desk, but they laughed it away. We had to switch it off and sweat through the night. Bad service!... More

This vacation was truly one of a kind! We just got home this afternoon, & I wanted to write before the details started "blurring". I have to start by mentioning & thanking Frank F. For his amazing support in our family's planning process. An Incredibly helpful man, who hung in there with us from start to finish. The guides they... More

First, a special thank you to Juan Jose' Salazar, the Red Mangrove Adventure Specialist. While we were in the planning stages, he always answered our many questions promptly by email and was most patient and helpful. Without his feedback/assurances, I am not sure we would have undertaken this trip. The Galapagos trip was a once in a lifetime adventure with... More

If you are happy with awful staff and overpriced shoddy rooms, this is the place for you. Firstly, my review and experience would have been completely different if we had only paid $200-$300 per night. However we were charged $655+ per night for a suite (even the chap on reception couldn't believe how much we'd been charged when we told... More

The kids, my wife and I continue to rave about our time in the Galapagos with Red Mangrove. Galapagos were amazing, and the naturalists were particularly attentive to the needs of a curious 9 year old who needed help snorkelling, while explaining evolution and Darwin's theories to our high school aged kids. Friendliest and most helpful hotel staff as well.... More

We had a fantastic time in the Galapagos diving, hiking and relaxing in a our nice rooms on both Santa Cruz and Isabella. Our dive master was great and we enjoyed the trip immensely. The dive master took wonderful underwater photos of hammerhead sharks, manta rays and sea lions that were once in a lifetime experiences. We were told we... More

Dear Guest, Your comment is very good appreciated, following up with the pictures. We explained that the internet on the islands is poor. So we are about to receive a CD, and as soon we are able to download, you will receive them inmediately. Our staff will be in touch with you . Sincerely, Red Mangrove Team More
