Small, well-located hotel in Puerto Villamil, Isabela Island. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom had plenty of nice and soft towels, and shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Nice breakfast in a small terrace. However, a bit pricey...

Stayed 2 nights with our 3 teenagers this july 2016. Staff and hotel itself friendly and relaxed. It is in an excellent location overlooking the ocean but a minutes walk from the creole hardenned sand "main street" of Isabella, lined with decent restaurants and kids doing what they do best in such island life, play and have fun.

This hotel is gorgeous; on the beach and clean, tidy and modern inside. The staff have been very helpful too and whenever we have had any comments they have addressed them immediately. However, our room (302) was at the top of the stairs next to the breakfast room so we could not leave the blind open to appreciate the spectacular... More

We had a lovely 4-day stay here Dec 29-Jan 3. We couldn’t have asked for a better beachside location, and also enjoyed being on the Western edge of town (currently a little less built-up, although clearly undergoing development). The breakfasts were good – we especially appreciated the yogurt, fruit, and fresh juice, and there was also a daily egg dish.... More

This hotel was just beautiful. It has beach view, it is small and very cosy and romantic. Manuel and his wife were very kind and helpful. I highly recommend it! It is very well located and would definitely like to return.
