“Remarkable Accommodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

My wife and I stayed three nights at Galapagos Suites while we were in Puerto Ayora on business. The hotelier, Joseline Cardoso, runs an immaculate B&B, where every detail shows evidence of being carefully thought out. She and her daughter are very gracious and helpful, and they provide an excellent breakfast. We will definitely stay there again on future trips.

We spent 5 nights at Galapagos Suites which was our base for island hopping. It is truly a fantastic place to stay. Rooms are huge, grounds well taken care of, breakfast hearty and diverse. The location is perfect, you are one street away from the main road but without the noise. There are plenty of restaurants walking distance away. Joseline goes above and beyond to make everybody's stay an amazing experience. She even managed to get the nearby spa open a few hours earlier for me!(a great Chi spa,two steps away). There are nice balconies with hammocks to chill out and the maid does a great job everyday. I would highly recommend this place. Great value for money.

We spent 3 days at the Galapagos Suites in Puerto Ayora after a 7-day cruise around the islands, and had a fantastic time. We were looking for a small B&B in a good location, and this place was perfect. It's very close to the center of town, very clean and quiet, and the breakfast is delicious. The mother & daughter pair that run the place were very helpful with everything, from finding our way around town to coordinating our trip back to the airport. We would highly recommend the Galapagos Suites to anyone staying in Puerto Ayora.

We stayed here one night after a 1 week cruise through the Galapagos. The place is clean, modern and feels more like four star hotel than a B&B. However we could tell in our short stay that the owner was very friendly and helpful and willing to make the stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. We will be back on our next visit to the Galapagos.

My son and I recently stayed at the Galapagos Suites for five nights and it was an amazing experience. I cannot tell you how much the owner goes out of her way to accommodate you and to make you feel at home. If you had an early tour and you need to have breakfast before it formally starts....no problem....she's up and waiting for you. You leave feeling that you've made a new friend. Our room was large, sunny and very clean. The included breakfast was beautifully served every morning on an outdoor patio where you can interact with the birds that join you at your table. If you're looking for a wonderful, comfortable, restful, clean and comfortable place to stay during your visit to the Galapagos Islands, this is it!

I don't speak Spanish (wish I did), so getting around in Puerto Ayoro was a challenge. Fortunately, the owners/operators spoke good enough English. They were exceptionally helpful, the rooms were excellent, and the cost reasonable. If I ever go back I'll stay again.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a tour. Lovely big room, very clean. Breakfast was good. Drinking water available at the hote for freel. We had wifi in our room but as everywhere on the Island it was quite slow. Only a couple of minutes walk from the main street in Puerto Ayora. Would recommend this hotel to friends and family.
