Stayed at the Solymar for 4 nights from March to April 2013. Hotel is split with one part facing the pool, bar area and sea front and the other part across the road facing the street. Like many people in Puerto Ayora, my wife and I were staying in the town to go on dive trips in the surrounding area.
We had booked a room with a sea view, but found that includes the rooms on the far side of the street from which we couldn't see the sea at all. Room was clean and pleasant, however on the first night (a Saturday) we found that the noise from the street was very loud and woke us serveral times, which was not ideal since we needed to be up early for diving. We commented to the reception staff in the morning and with no fuss were moved at our convenience to the rooms actually facing the sea and bar area which are far quieter and also have balconies. Staff were also very helpful in booking a restuarant for us.
Lastly I should mention the buffet breakfast which was included and excellent.
