We stayed at The Wooden House Lodge for 3 nights on our visit to Isla Isabella. The hotel was only a 5 minute walk from the port towards the centre. The hotel was quiet, not many people staying there and no atmosphere. It was however very clean, the room was nice with a walk in wardrobe and the breeze from... More

We stayed at this hotel 3 nights in mid June and we were the only ones there the entire time. They told us at check in that they would upgrade us to a 'deluxe' room even though we had paid 115 USD plus 'taxes' for a standard room. The room was nice but the AC didn't work and there was... More

This is a fabulous lodge, lovely food, very nice rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Really enjoyed my stay here. Close to the harbour and close to the town. We had a delicious evening meal here. There is a lovely outdoorsy place to eat and meet up.

This place is beautiful. They greet you with fresh juice when you arrive and after a 2 hour boat ride from Santa Cruz it sure was welcoming. The cook was very accommodating with our breakfast needs each morning. On the last day he even got up to brew us fresh coffee and serve croissants for our 5:30am boat ride back... More

Nothing fancy, but nice and clean rooms. Friendly and serviceminded staff. Wifi was only present in the common areas such as the reception, the bar and pool and the restaurant. The hotel, pool and restaurant is small and the restaurant has only one dinner, and dinner booking are made in advance. Good and fast laundry service.

This hotel came recommended by Galapagos Alternatives. We were very happy with the accommodations; rooms were nicely appointed, beds comfortable, and bathrooms clean. Our stay included dinners and we felt that the meals offered were not a great value. Meals were slightly on the small side for the young men in our group and there was no choice of a... More

We have stayed at the Wooden House twice. It is a phenomenal hotel located very close to the main port. We walked 100 meters to the lagoon to snorkel every day. The breakfast and dinners were very good. Highly recommend.

The Wooden House is just 5 minutes from Isabela's small harbour where sea lions and iguanas lie next to you at the beach; and the beautiful Concha de Perla which is great for snorkeling.
