We very much enjoyed our stay here. We had the Verde room. It has two levels, with a balcony facing the beach. Kept the door open on the balcony at night to hear the ocean. The room had nice linens, bathrobes, hair dryer, etc. It was very clean. The breakfast was outstanding -- the best we had during our trip.... More

We stayed here for a few nights around 15th-19th of Oct 2012. The weather was perfect. We enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets from the beach. We stayed in this room which is located towards the front of the property, upstairs. We had a peek of the beach. It didn't really matter which room were in, they are all nice. Plus... More

The hotel has a beautiful decoration and all the rooms are different. There is an attractive mixture of styles with some kitsch details. I felt inmediately "at home" and the staff was very helpful and fiendly, always attending our needs.

This is a beautiful hotel; it's a family-owned establishment with great food. Our room was located right on the water, and we had an amazing view of the beach. The service was second to none; the staff was very attentive, always attending to our needs, cleaning our room promptly, and being extremely pleasant. My highest rating.

This was our third hotel on the Galapagos and most likely the best one. It's a small, familial hotel with a beautiful view at the beach. The kitchen does some very good, local food. Very fresh and tasty. Go there, and accept the cookies! :)

Right on the beach, with lots of lounge chairs and hammocks. Rooms were comfortable and clean and staff were very welcoming and friendly. Wifi cut in and out. We were booked as part of a ROW tour, so I don't know what the costs were.
