We loved staying at Hotel Albermarle! Such a cool and refreshing retreat from the heat of busy days exploring these beautiful islands. Our balcony overlooked the ocean, inviting sea breezes and a perfect vantage point for the array of animal activity below. A crystal clear pool, fringed with flowers just a few steps from the sandy beach. Delicious breakfasts with everything you could wish for. A rooftop patio with 360 degree views of beaches, volcanoes, misty highlands and stunning sunsets. So much beauty and wildlife could be experienced without even stepping out the door. The true gems are within however. The friendly and professional staff, Ana, Juliet and their team went above and beyond, making our stay incredibly special. Cannot thank them enough for their seamless assistance in all things trip related. We stayed an extra night and didn't want to leave! -Shelly from Australia

I have two minds about this hotel. We were too late to book a room with our first choice hotel so our travel agent recommended this one. At first we were very disappointed, then we became acclimated. LOL. So, the first shock is there was no wifi anywhere in the hotel - only available at the tiny reception area. Takes some getting used to in our age of connectivity. The rooms are large but not very comfortable. The bathrooms are also large and rather basic. The pool was the size of a postage stamp and the water was extremely murky, foggy, couldn’t see through it, completely not inviting. However, who cares, the hotel is right on the beach - just go for a swim in the beautiful waters of the ocean. So all these inconveniences become very secondary as we became one with the beautiful island. It’s a very rustic place with basic tourist restaurants and shops. But that’s not the reason for your visit. The extradinary nature is why your are there and it really is.

Book Albemarle and you will not be disappointed. Its a quiet gem directly overlooking the beach. Clean large rooms, a great breakfast service and a small but relaxing pool. Its an easy walk into town. A doable walk to La Perla for snorkeling. The staff is friendly and welcoming. WiFi is spotty and unreliable.

Our room overlooked the beautiful beach. Could only get the internet in the lobby. The view from the roof was amazing. Didn't get a chance to have breakfast as we were out early most days so only had packed lunch.

This hotel was definitely one experience that I would never forgot! Hotel was very clean and nice! Ocean view rooms! Ana, the manager that were there during my stay was the reason for this unforgettable experience! I forgot my phone in the cab riding to the ferry on the morning that I was leaving, when I got a hold of Ana, she went above and beyond to make sure my phone was hand delivered to me the same day at my next hotel in Guayaquil! How amazing is that!! Thank you Ana!! Highly recommend this place!!
