We chose to see the Galapagos via stays at the Red Mangrove hotels on Santa Cruz and Isabela islands because I get seasick and did not want to brave a cruise. Having just traveled to the Amazon where we stayed at a truly incredible lodge (Napo Wildlife Center), I was not at all impressed with Red Mangrove. Apparently they've had... More

I stayed. In the Red Mangrove on Santa Cruz and Isabela and received 5 star treatment in both. Elizabeth in Puerto Ayora was fantastic - very professional whilst be welcoming and caring. She is a credit to the hotel and certainly made my stay very enjoyable. I loved the setting in the mangroves with the sea lions and iguanas on... More

Our stay at the Red Mangrove resorts was a subcontracted tour titled Darwin's Footprints. Both Santa Cruz and Isabela properties are beautiful, but the tour was poorly managed. With no tour leader, the plan kept changing, and communication was lacking. When it came time to take the boat to Isabela Island at 2PM, we had to wait on the dock... More

There is a reason this hotel is always full. It's the best place to stay in Puerto Ayora. We stayed in the Verde suite. A large clean room with a king bed. The deck is private with a view of the harbor. Take advantage of the no see um bug spray available in the dining area if you're out on... More

Our once in a lifetime trip to the Galapagos began at this well appointed lodge in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz island. The staff was fantastic, and accommodated all requests, and made us feel at home. The food was very good, and the sea lions and iguanas that joined us on the hotel deck were special. Located on Charles Darwin... More

Stay here! We were treated like royalty! The staff went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best time. The room was gorgeous, a beautiful view of ocean! The food was outstanding (have the Chicken teriyaki and fried ice cream....outstanding!). It is surreal to have your breakfast with seals and lizards lounging near your table! The hotel is... More

We did the 5 night six day package with 3 nights on Isabella and two nights in Puerto Ayora. We booked through Row Adventures. Buffet meals were great. Lots of local fruit juices and good selection of local dishes with American style foods. Rooms were nice. Loved the beach location on Isabella. Food was a little better at the Adventura... More

We visited the hotel while we were staying at Puerto Ayora and the hotel offered us a great deal (1/2 price) for a room! The rooms are very nice, spacious, well decorated. The staff is very helpful too. They have free bikes that you can borrow for the day. Definitely a great hotel compared to the other ones in Puerto... More

The staff at Red Mangrove Aventura Lodge is accommodating, professional and very helpful. I have a food intolerance and that item was never on the buffet when I was present. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The first night our room was right off the deck by the water and we heard the sea lions waking up and playing.... More
