This is a luxury boutique hotel, directly on the beach of the island. Very central. Close to all restaurants in the town. Less than couple minutes from all eateries and stores. Very friendly personnel, Carlos and Lienke. You feel like as if they are your friends since ages. Very helpful and professional people. We got the best room (#13; CHARLES)....

I had booked and paid for this place 8 months in advance. I had booked for 2 nights. Initially they could not give me ocean view room due to block booking and promised the same if available. A month in advance they confirmed the upgrade to front view beachfront rooms. They had also taken note of our arrival time of...

This is a nice, friendly hotel just meters from the sea. Perfect for a short stay on Isabela Island. Rooms are clean, breakfast is enough to start a day full of tours, location is good to reach restaurants and shops in minutes. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

OK...if you're going to Isabella...you are stepping back in time. But I'm going to assume you already know this. The staff at this hotel does an excellent job and made us feel welcome and relaxed! The location is also great. I would give this a higher rating but contrary to what they advertise, there is no tv or wifi. I...

We faced the bay and had a small ground floor balcony that we never used because it was too narrow to use. We did enjoy the great view from the room. I loved being able to walk out of the hotel and jump into the water. The rooms are large with high ceilings and good AC. The roof-top is available...
