We stayed for 3 nights at the Eco Lodge and would have loved to stay longer! Although it says lodge it is a brand new, modern hotel with spacious and comfortable rooms. The beds are lovely and huge! Each room has a microwave and fridge as well as a table and chairs.
Everything is thoughtfully designed and the service from Harry and his family is wonderfully welcoming and professional.
There was a fantastic breakfast included each morning and we were surprised at how many delicious courses we were served! I guess a lot of people do diving and hiking so you need a good breakfast but they really go all out, first fruit salad and granola, then pancakes and syrup followed by an omelette.
Breakfast was different on each of the days we were there and it is served in a open air cafe that has stunning views of the whole bay. This is an awesome way to start the day!
Harry is super helpful with recommendations and tours and being a guide is very knowledgeable about the islands and the animals.
This is definitely a place to book in advance, the best hotel on the island and the perfect base for exploring San Cristobel.
