The description sounded great--private balconies overlooking the ocean, etc. Well, two things: the balconies really "overlook" the bar, pool and breakfast are and, as the rooms are only on the ground and one level higher, the balconies are basically part of this common area. Second thing: we booked one of these but got there to be told we'd been given... More

We stayed for 4 nights while doing some day trips to other islands. Great small hotel with very friendly staff, especially Maria on the front desk. Good included breakfast and nothing too much trouble for any of the staff.

We were in Galapagos for a few days, and stayed at the Solymar. A clean and well maintained place. Renato, the manager, made a serious effort to make sure that we were comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was good. The Darwin center is walking distance. The fish market is very close by and you can see pelicans, sea lions up close.... More

We spent 5 nights in Solymar with our two daughters and had a great time! We stayed in the Isla Sol tower, in one of the inner rooms. The room was spacious and confortable, but had no outside view. Small issue, since we only stayed in the room at night! The restaurant was great and with a great view over... More

We stayed at the Solymar hotel for 2 nights while in Galapagos. The rooms are big and very comfortable. The breakfast and dinner we had were great and with a beautiful view of the pool, the ocean and the wildlife. The entire team lead by Renato did an amazing job of making us feel welcome throughout of entire stay. Strongly... More

Came here for dinner. Nice view, good food. However I would like to complain about the service. We ordered a bunch of sushi. It took over 40 minutes to come even though there were only two other tables occupied. When the food came. My brother asked for some togarashi (type of hot sauce present in the menu), however the waiter... More

This hotel has a great location. It is central to restaurants, shops, bike rentals and other services. We could walk to wherever we needed to after our boat tours. The owner was really helpful and friendly with all his guests, to make sure everything was good. The hotel is very good at being environment friendly. They gave us each hotel... More

Stayed at the Hotel Solymar for 3 nights. Oceanfront room overlooking the harbour. Nice pool - but you may have to share it with the iguana and the pelicans :-) Nice sunrise.

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.
