Thoroughly enjoyed my 4 day stay at Albemarle. A beautiful hotel in a location that is as close to perfect as you could wish for! The view from the room was to die for, and falling out of bed on to the beach every morning was just amazing! It's impossible not to feel relaxed in this place, the hotel is owned by a lovely family, and consequently has a very family feel to it, which I much prefer to some of the cold, corporate places you can find at this end of the market. Certainly wasn't expecting the owner of a Galapagos hotel to be English(!), so that was a nice surprise, and Max was really helpful in sorting things out for us like trips, transport etc, which was a huge relief given that my Spanish isn't exactly up to scratch! Food was great - tasty breakfasts in the mornings, and room was perfectly comfortable - comfy bed, decent bathroom, shower etc and extremely effective air conditioning which was very welcome after a hot day out!! Can't really understand some of the negative reviews I've seen on here - can only assume these people were somewhat high maintenance!! For me it was a lovely holiday, super relaxed, away from the real world, no stress, no fuss. Perfect.
