We stayed for one month at the Galapagos Eco Lodge and we loved it! Almost everything was perfect.
The room has all you could ask for: a huge and comfortable bed, a fridge, a microwave, a small table with 2 chairs, a good shower with hot water, good air conditioning and internet access. But most importantly it was kept impeccably clean at all times. The only downside of the rooms is that they look to the (not yet completely finished) garden and have no view. The internet connection was not always very stable but sufficient to check your mails.
The big and very tasty breakfast Lucrecia prepares every morning is the perfect start to an adventurous day in the Galapagos. She is very inventive and during our one month stay we hardly got the same breakfast twice. You can enjoy the famous pancakes or delicious fruit salads with yoghurt and granola from the top of the hotel in the new dining room that has a stunning panoramic view of the island and the harbor.
Harry, Lucrecia and their two kids are doing everything to make you feel at home. They know almost everyone in town and can help you to organize your activities. Harry is a knowledgeable certified naturalist and dive master and will be happy to answer any question you might have about the islands and its animals.
The Eco Lodge is located a 10 minutes’ walk up the hill from the center of town. If you don’t want to walk you can take a taxi for one Dollar only. It’s a save and (apart from some roosters in the morning) quiet place.
At the moment they are building 6 new guest rooms on the first floor. However, this did not affect our stay in any way and it was interesting to see Harry’s vision come true step by step.
Even though we haven’t seen any other hotels in San Cristobal we are quite sure you won’t find a better value. It’s hard to beat the fair price of the Eco Lodge with its high standard and the friendly owners.
Harry, you and your family took such good care of us and made our stay unforgettable. It was really like being in paradise. Thank you very much for everything, we hope to come back to your wonderful place on San Cristobal Island! T&S
