Due to time constraints, we decided to visit just one island in the Galapagos and do a land-based tour. This hotel is so close to the beach that my son ran out every morning to visit the marine iguanas. We walked to view the giant tortoises and flamingoes twice. During our excursions, we saw just about everything imaginable (penguins, blue footed boobies, sea lions, sharks, sea turtles, etc). Memorable trip, for sure.

Not a fancy place but overall a nice hotel to stay. Everything is basic but functional. Clean and friendly staff. They will do laundry for you for $6 per kilogram. You can buy beers and juice as well.

We arrived early but our room was not available yet so staff were nice enough to let us stay and relax on a beach chair in the garden that has a good view of the beach. The bed was cosy and the room was clean. Takes a while for the shower to be warm. Staff are nice. Had one of the best omelette for breakfast too.

Amazing location - right on the beach, sea view from the room (although restricted), sound of waves, very friendly and helpful reception staff, nice breakfast on the terrace with a lovely sea view, nice fresh breakfast made by friendly lady, filtered water available and tea & coffee facility, no wifi - it was great to switch off completely! A/c working very well. Some of the fittings were rusty - premium price for such a great location and one would expect fittings to be in a reasonable order. Room next to the breakfast area and thus noisy from 6am daily. Little privacy as the window was facing the corridor area and breakfast area. Erratic water temperature but no huge deal, one learnt to work with it. Noisy neighbors, rooms didn't seem to be soundproofed well. Overall good stay but certainly room for improvements.

We stayed at Casita de la Playa for 3 nights while on Isabela. The staff were wonderful and took there time to introduce themselves to us if we had not met them when we initially checked in. The room was small the common areas more than made up it. On the 3rd floor, the breakfast area offered a gorgeous view of the beach and there was a little grassy garden on the ground floor. Breakfast was delicious: fresh fruit, fresh juice, toast, and scrambled eggs. The staff made sure each morning that the timing worked with our schedule. Coincidentally, we were there during the celebration of the island's creation, so there was a big celebration. It was noisy but worth it to be a part of the revelry.
