We spent a week with Red Mangrove and enjoyed every day. The food was good (we ate the salads and fruit with no ill effects) and selection was always good. We had a room with a balcony and the view was over the bay. On Isabela, all is simpler but still very nice. Eric was our guide through our stay... More

One the one hand, this is a very nice resort feeling hotel that has a very helpful concierge, on site buffet breakfast ($18 + tax), free bike rentals for guests, a computer with wifi in the lobby (wifi does not work in room regardless of what folks tell you). The room is large and well equipped - TV, no wifi... More

Dear Guest, We respect your feedback, but were are completely disagree. Galapagos is a Natural Reserve, the Aventura Lodge is located in a privilege place between mangrove trees, in fact the noise you hear at night was JUST the nuts of the mangrove, As being part of the Galapagos, we encourage our guest to enjoy nature and why not the...

We loved the location of this hotel - away from the main downtown area & hostels, easy walk to the Darwin centre. We had two problems that were not dealt with to our satisfaction - one was that our room had a huge colony of ants who had taken up residence - they were on the bed & in between... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your subjective review, we respect it but we are disagree. I am very sorry of the presence of ants in your room, which are part of the nature in Galapagos, specially the way our lodge is located between mangroves. The hotel staff clean the rooms twice per day during low season and 3... More

Located in the middle of a mangrove forest this hotel is beautifully situated. If you have an issue with mosquitos, take a good bug spray as they love the swampy surrounds. Room was generous and lovely. Use of the dehumidifier is a must for a comfy stay, but easy instructions. Until it does it’s magic, be careful walking on the... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. We had 2 very nice rooms overlooking the water, and with magical views from the bathroom! Some of the other rooms behind us without views seemed much smaller, and not as pleasant. Food was ok- but a little bit of a repetitive buffet. We were surprised by the number of touristy stores...

I do not understand the reviews of this place. The location is potentially lovely, however, the service is non existent. We stayed at the extension but tried to eat here 3 times this week. The service could not be found until we left the tables and asked the staff to look after us. We were informed that 2/3 of the... More

We spent two nights at the lovely Aventura Lodge in December, located towards one end of Puerto Ayora's main drag. On the ground floor is a nice restaurant with a deck over (and overlooking) the ocean -- it specializes in sushi though other things are available, like steak, chicken, veggie dishes. The food is good, though not great -- but... More

We took the eight day Darwin's footprints package through Travelzoo. Adid met us at the airport and was there with a friendly smile to accommodate all of our needs throughout the week. Each day was extremely well planned. Our guides, Padro and Manuel, were very knowledgable and provided great experiences during each trip. The service down to every staff member... More
