The Red Booby is a really nice hotel, it is family run and offers really good service. We stayed there with our 2 year old son and 9 year old daughter, we had a delightful time, we enjoyed the rooftop pool and the having the kitchen available to heat our baby bottles. The staff were very accommodating and the place was cleaned regularly. The location is ok.
It was great value for the price we paid, hotels in Galapagos are very expensive compared to other places around the world, therefore do expect a high price tag on basic properties.
The rooms are basic, they have AC and private bathrooms.
My only recommendation for the hotel would be to hire English speaking staff. We speak Spanish, yet other travelers did have a hard time communicating their needs.
It also has to do with managing expectations: Foam matresses not orthopedic but with good clean linen, basic quality bathroom amenities (nothing great), no lifeguard at the pool, breakfast was basic yet well prepared (bread, butter, jam, eggs, juice and coffee - nothing gourmet). We cant complain, the price we paid was good for the Galapagos Islands.
