A nice hotel near the downtown and dining areas. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious, included breakfast is good, the pool is nice, staff are friendly. Significantly overpriced for the area, though, so I will go elsewhere next time.

It wasnt the best hotel of santa cruz, but it was ok, we do what we have to do, also my bf and I sleep on the rooms that are in the back so we didnt have problems with the street noise, the breakfast was fine.

I had a terrible experience at The Red Booby. I am a retired teacher from Greenwich, CT and have traveled extensively...This is a horrible place to stay...Way overpriced... will come and take a bed out of your room at their convenience, limited hot water, poor breakfast and a 1962 time warp... when within walking distance is a facility with three...

The Red Booby is a really nice hotel, it is family run and offers really good service. We stayed there with our 2 year old son and 9 year old daughter, we had a delightful time, we enjoyed the rooftop pool and the having the kitchen available to heat our baby bottles. The staff were very accommodating and the place... More

The location of this hotel is pretty ideal. Walking distance to the pier where you can catch a water taxi ($0.60/person daytime or $1.00/person night time) to the nearby Angermeyer island for an afternoon cocktail and beach stroll. Sadly, that's the only positive point I have for this hotel. A pungent odor welcomed us as we entered our room. It... More

We stayed at the Red Booby for 5 nights in January. The location is superb -within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in Puerto Arroyo and just a couple blocks from the waterfront/docks. The room was plenty large with a table/chairs and storage area for clothes. Everything was neat and clean. Loved the roof top pool! Probably not... More

Our family recently stayed at the Red Booby for 1 night on our Galapagos Adventure. The hotel is in a great location (although all is close in Puerto Ayora). The rooms were clean, plenty of hot water for showering, air conditioner worked well. We stayed on the first floor. A little noisy in the morning with guests coming down, gathering... More
