First of all, even if it qualifies as a first class hotel, it is not quite so in my opinion. Maybe for the area the amenities are more than enough and maybe it is just me. I may have expected more. The staff (or maybe all Ecuadoreans) were truly accommodating and ready to help out anytime. Breakfast was better than... More

For myself and my fiancee, this hotel went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. They helped us call taxis, they provided us with a free room upgrade, and they were extremely friendly anytime we needed help. Keep in mind, Galapagos is not the place for a complete luxury hotel experience, but the room at this... More

Nice little hotel on the waterfront and the main drag of this little island town. My room was pleasant, with a terrace opening on the pool-bar area. The breakfast was not good so we were not tempted to eat at the restaurant, but the bar was good. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

I only ate at the restaurant here. Lovely setting by the water, attentive service and great sushi and sparkling wine. My sushi was flambéed by the table which was cool. Staff also provide you with insect repellant if you are having trouble with the mosquitos...

My daughter and I stayed here on our last night of a recent trip to the Galápagos just because we had an extra day to kill after our tour, and we were able to get a free night with reward points. It was perfect for our last day: They have a beautiful pool with a spectacular view, it was close... More

I spent 3 nights in this beautiful hotel and I loved every minute of it. The location is wonderful, near the sea and very close to the fish market , so you can see all the time pelicans and other beautiful birds flying by . The owner, Renato, is amazing. He takes care of each of his guests and does... More

We stayed at Hotel Solymar in mid-February of this year and it was an amazing experience. The location is phenomenal -- you are in easy walking distance from the best shops and restaurants that Puerto Ayora has to offer. (Don't miss the couple selling their handmade infused chocolates each evening to the delight of all passersby. They are steps from... More

We had a very pleasant 2 nights stay at Isla Sol, an extension of Solymar on the other side of the street - the pool and restaurant are at Solymar. The location is perfect - not far away from the pier, close to shops, restaurants and the fish market - a show in itself! The room was nice and comfortable,... More

We stayed at Solymar 2 nights last month, after spending 8 nights on board of Reina Silva. Great location and friendly service. Easy to walk anywhere in town from the hotel. Little pricey but worth it. I would highly recommend this place.

I stayed at this hotel twice and both times we had an amazing experience. Everything from rooms, friendly stuff, service they deliver to food and amenities was great. We loved it. The manager of the hotel, Renato de Perez is just amazing and what every hotel manager should be: friendly, professional, always with a solution. Plus this hotel is centrally... More
