The staff was very friendly and worked hard to make our trip incredible, without their help we wouldn't have done or seen half of what we did. The rooms are clean and quiet, and the breakfast is delicious. I believe this hotel is a great value compared to many of the other hotels in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to... More

I stayed here in July 2014 whilst on a school expedition. We all enjoyed our stay. The rooms were absolutely fine; very clean and we had no problems with noise, we didn't use the air con as the weather was warm but not hot. The general feeling was that of all the hotels we stayed in in Ecuador and Galapagos... More

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.

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...

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
