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

From the time we decided to go to the Galapagos with our grand kids to our return home, we experienced nothing but cooperation and a helpful attitude. We stayed at the Adventure lodge on Santa Cruz in one of their 'quads' - the accommodations were great, prefect for two teenage boys (beds on platforms that didn't move). The activities kept... More

We booked the 7 night package through Travel Zoo and had an easy time communicating with Fernanda via email. She was able to answer all of my questions and everything we talked about was taken care of- we upgraded to the suites and I strongly suggest doing that. The suites are beautiful and the views out the windows are great.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights after a 5 day boat trip in the Galapagos. It was a great place to decompress. Such a stunningly beautiful setting! The staff was friendly and helpful!
