Right in front of the ocean, clean, quiet, comfortable, and air conditioned. Comfortable beds, and a very nice breakfast every morning. Owner, Carlos, on site to take care of any of your needs. Certainly one of the best hotels on Isabella Island!

This place is ideal for a quiet holiday right on the waterfront. The rooms had views but with a lot of power lines in front, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were polite and helpful. Walk 20m to a sandy beach and not much further to safe swimming. Although on the equator, the temps are mild and... More

I would have given this hotel a Very Good or even Excellent had it not been for the Soccer Arena. When we checked we got a room with a nice Pool View, very large, clean and comfortable.

We were staying at another high-end hotel but had no view. Albemarle was right down the beach and simply beautiful. We changed the next day and ended up with a beautiful room with a 180 degree of the beach. The management and staff were amazing. Breakfast was to write home abut too.

Hotel Albemarle was by far our favorite hotel of the several we stayed at between the Islands. The location, to start with, is excellent.
