Thank goodness for this hotel! It salvaged our time on Isabela. Before arriving, we had already organized lodging for the week. Unfortunately, that initial hotel was subpar…we had to leave after the first night.
Walking around the dirt roads of Puerto Villamil, we wandered in to Hotel Albemarle. We had not expectations of getting an affordable room, but we were wonderfully surprised. The manager offered an incredible discount because we planned to stay several nights. While still twice the cost of our initial room, we accepted the offer.
We stayed for just $80/ in a room that is listed on their website at $195. It was on the second floor, ocean front! This also included a divine breakfast of eggs, croissants, coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice (the best I've ever had)!
The lodging was large, clean, and comfortable. The staff was unbelievably helpful, booking each of our excursions! My fiancé and I loved our stay in Hotel Albemarle!
Just a tip, if you travel in the off season, just show up! Maybe then, you'll get a discounted room!
