We stayed here as part of our 5 day Galapagos Is tour. The location is out of the way of the main commercial district. The hotel is up the hill about 12 blocks from the Malecon (waterfront). You either need to take a taxi or be prepared to walk.
The room was very basic with tiled floor and a toilet / shower. We organised with the travel agent for a big bed for me and the wife and 2 singles for the kids. When we opened the door to the room we were given 4 single beds. This was corrected the next day by pushing two singles together.
The shower was hot enough but the screen was two short so all the water would leak onto the floor next to the toilet.
The windows to our room (#1) had timber horizontal blinds with one piece of the blind snapped off. This meant it was possible for someone to look in the window through the gap. Quite possible given the window is overlooking the main pathway.
The restaurant was not good. Very tidy but usually only 3 food warmers containing rice, vegetables and the other one contained the main creation. A glass of juice was provided with your meal but the waiter would never top your glass up because that meant there would be less juice for him to drink behind the bar. If you wanted another drink you needed to pay for it.
The only good thing I liked about this hotel was the jacuzzi by the pool.
This hotel is no frills. We won't be back unless we're desprate.
