Stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. Unfortunately I believe I had one of the smallest rooms located by the kitchen, which was a little noisy at times. The room itself was clean and functional as was the bathroom. There was no view to speak of as the window looked out onto the wall of the neighbouring...

We stayed at the Hotel San Vicente on Isabela Island for 2 nights...This was my favorite of the islands we visited. We stayed in room number 2 which is right in the main entry and could be a bit noisy at times. There were 3 single beds in this room and it was pretty basic. The AC worked great and...

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our land based tour with Nature Galapagos. The hotel was a 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants which wasn't too bad and the hotel itself was conveniently located close by to a supermarket for picking up snacks and drinks.

We stayed here for three nights in March. Our airconditioning did not work for the duration of our stay making it uncomfortable to sleep.

Situated on remote Isabela Island, this should be a castaway island getaway but instead is a fairly commercial, tour group centric hotel that lacks much charm. The staff are welcoming and friendly, but it just lacks the character that you would expect having travelled 6-7 hours from the Ecuadorian coast into the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The food is...
