Good hotel with great breakfast that is available before all tours. Nice rooms but no tv and wifi is poor but was not a problem for us as we were out the whole time but good to know if that is important to you. Good stay and only about three blocks from the restaurants in town. Nice place

Loved this hotel. Easy access to great food and things to do. Pool was an added bonus for the kids. The Darwin center was walking distance from the hotel and a much needed laundry was nearby done by locals. Downtown was within walking distance as well with great places to eat. The hotel was very accomodating to our large group... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Fernandina during a recent trip to the Galapagos. My travel agent arranged for this and it was an excellent choice for us. The buffet breakfast was plentiful, with plenty of fruit everyday. We also had dinner one night and we both felt the fish was excellent and it was very convenient to... More

Having read some of the other reviews, my expectation levels were quite low and I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is very pretty set around a pretty courtyard and the rooms are large with a comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and a bigger than average bathroom. It's very close to the shops and port but being it's a... More

Wasn't expecting much in Puerto Ayora so was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It was clean, had a good AC and typical, but nice, buffet breakfast in a pleasant (although a bit dark) breakfast room. (Good lighting is not exactly a high point of many places in Ecuador, or Latin America, for that matter.) I appreciated their good coffee! Good... More

Everything worked well, the hotel was clean, the staff was very kind and the location is good (less than 10-minute walk from the port). The breakfast is simple but ok and the shower was hot and did not give us trouble. The wifi was slow as most places in Galapagos.

Pleasant, quiet hotel with air conditioning, good food, excellent service and at a location within easy walking distance of the Darwin Center and the Catholic 'Isla de la Santa Cruz' -- Puerto Ayora is the town on Isla Santa Cruz, the obligatory first stop after landing on Baltra Island.
