We stayed on San Cristobal Island for 3 nights after our Galapagos cruise and found Casa Mabell on airbnb (our first airbnb, by the way). Since we are a family of 5, we usually look for homes or condos, rather than 2 hotel rooms. This spacious 3 bedroom apt was only a block from the water, and easy walking distance... More

Casa Mabell is ideally situated close to the main pier and is an exceptionally clean and comfortable place to stay. We stayed in a double, and the room was cleaned daily, with fresh towels and a made bed. The owners are lovely and let us use their kitchen, saving us food money. They are also very knowledgeable about sights and... More

My Mom and I stayed in Casa Mabell for four days. We had a wonderful time in this neat home with excellent hosts and friends. The home is located near the pier and the beach. We recommend this home to anyone visiting San Cristóbal.

Warm welcome by Mercedes and her husband for our family. 2 single beds in one room and a double in another with access to the street from our door. Super clean and tidy. Water and a fridge provided. A/c in rooms we didn't need due to cooler weather but the fan was good to have. Great location.

We spent 2 nights at Casa Mabell and loved our stay. We turned up last minute and got a 2 person room for $30 with shared bathroom and kitchen. The place is super clean, has aircon and great hot water. The kitchen is also well stocked so great for cooking. I had the best nights sleep here I have had... More

We had an excellent room with aircon, ceiling fan and comfortable beds. We had access to shared bathroom and kitchen. Everything was clean, tidy and well equipped. There's no bar or restaurant and no breakfast option but the hotel is right next to restaurants on the waterfront and there's a cheap bakery a couple of minutes away. We mostly cooked... More

We had no accommodation arranged for San Cristobal so walked from the pier in search of somewhere. A very short walk from the pier led us to the doorstep of Casa Mabell where a lovely elderly couple invited us in to view the room. We paid $75 for 2 nights at Casa Mabell, and enjoyed air con, good wifi, and... More

This was the best place we stayed in the Galápagos Islands, by far! Lovely friendly owners (Nelson even took us to the supermarket!), air conditioning, a well-equipped kitchen, free water, comfy bed, a TV that actually worked, perfect location less than a minute from the dock, and everything was cleaned everyday to a very high standard. Very reasonable price too.... More

We stayed at Casa Mabell for 4 nights on San Christobal and I can't think of a better place to have spent our time. The flat our family enjoyed was clean, spacious and included a full kitchen and air conditioning in each bedroom. The price was extremely reasonable and the owners were also very helpful in assisting us in seeing... More
