If you want Dorchester/DoubleTree/Savoy then head off and spend the money. If however you want clean, affordable and really friendly right in the middle of everything you need then this place might be for you. The staff don't speak English much (why should they?) but are as warm, welcoming and helpful as you can imagine. Our room was small but... More

I stayed here with a group of teachers and students. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the roof terrace. There was a lot of outdoor space to relax in...the hammocks were particularly enjoyable. Breakfast was excellent with fresh juices every morning. The rooms were large and comfortable with an abundant supply of hot water.

A group of 40 of us stayed here in May for 4 nights and it was wonderful. Check-in for the huge group of us was a breeze, the staff doesn't speak much english, but were very sweet and friendly. The rooms are not fancy, but are clean and much more comfortable than we expected knowing that this is not a... More

I stayed here for four nights in May 2015 as part of a group of 40 travelers. Due to a few negative reviews, I was not expecting much and that was OK with me; I think of myself as a low maintenance traveler. I was therefore pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the staff, the high quality of the breakfasts,... More

The staff were friendly and helpful... the hotel was clean. The breakfast was amazing. The coffee superb. My son really enjoyed the pool. At the time we stayed we were the only ones there. We're a family of four and had two rooms. The hotel is a short walk to everywhere.

This hotel was really nicely set up. The hammocks, the pool, the open concept. All very nice for kicking back after a busy day in the galapagos. Breakfast here was also really nice. Recommend this stop if you are travelling through Santa Cruz.

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.
