We stayed here as an extension to our Friendly Planet/Red Mangrove tour of the Galapagos in October. It was not exactly as we expected but having said that it was not bad either. Like another reviewer said it is not really a spa, they have a room for massages and pedicures etc but the person has to be called in. We did have massages and they were very good, reasonable price.
The location is inland from the coast a few kilometers and up in the hills so it does have a good view to the ocean beyond but it would be a far walk. It is not luxury but does have a particular charm, great staff, cozy cottages and some interesting activities that were included in our package such as ziplining, tour of the coast, visit to native village.
The food was OK but not special.
