We were assigned room 9 in the back corner if the hotel and after being there for an hour, and unhappy with the place, found a nuch better hotel just a block away... the Hotel Silberstein. The desk manager who was very nice seemed rushed and overworked because he had other responsibilities that took him away from the office, leaving... More

Lovely hotel with a wonderful staff, clean rooms, refreshing swimming pool, excellent breakfast, great location for touring Santa Cruz, Bartolome and Santa Fe Islands. We were on a land-based tour with BikeHike Adventures, and really enjoyed being able to connect to the local culture, along with the extraordinary wildlife.

This hotel is fairly well located, clean, and quite comfortable. We stayed two nights, and it was fine for that period. The room was adequate, and the bathroom likewise, no complaints there. Internet was slow and patchy, but we got by. Food was nothing special, basic and adequate. All in all, an average stay...

There are fancier hotels in town with better views - and much higher prices - but "the Ferd" is a clean, comfortable, reasonably-maintained place to stay in PA. It is a couple of short blocks' walk from the bustling waterfront. The Ferd has a pleasant outdoor courtyard to socialize in, as well as a modest outdoor pool. Rooms are simple... More

This hotel is a nice find, off the busy streets but very easily accessible. Close to the Charles Darwin Research Station and an easy walk into town. The rooms were spacious, kept very clean, and had AC although we never used it because the weather was so nice. The staff were very helpful, especially Teo who helped us with arrange... More

We stayed here for 6 nights as we left our catamaran. The room was clean and looked after every day. The breakfast was very average but you could eat. The staff were ok, some nicer than others but not very friendly. Is just in the outskirts of town but well placed to walk in (and get a little exercise) value... More

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
