The legendary Casa Opuntia is our landmark hotel in San Cristobal Island. We offer 13 comfort class rooms, some with ocean front balconies, as well as a common seating and lounging area overlooking the boardwalk. You are only a few meters away from Playa de Oro Beach and from the small, lazy port town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. Take a refreshing dip in our small, fresh-water swimming pool while you enjoy a cocktail before sunset.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour package. The rooms are nice and spacious, the breakfast was nice and included and the hotel has two pools and a great eating area that has a view of the water. Location is perfect.

My wife and I stayed here before boarding our liveaboard. We were pleasantly surprised as the rooms were great and we were taken care of by the greatest staff on the island! They took care of everything from showing us around and recommending some key points to visit during our short stay. Super clean and best location. The waves will easily put you to sleep after a long series of flights...

We stayed here for 1 night before starting our cruise trip. The room was clean but very basic. Bare minimal amenity. Breakfast was barebone, with undrinkable instant coffee. Service was professional but rather unfriendly. The place looked much better on line than in reality. There were other less expensive options, also with sea views, in San Cristobal. But we chose this place expecting it to be nicer. This place is worth half of what it costs. We walked by a few nicer places on the same street, with sea views, that cost less on line. Not recommended.

Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately your reservation was for a pool front room and not an ocean view as you expected. Our breakfast is quite abundant and we certainly dont serve instant coffee, but only freshly brewed one. It includes three types of fresh fruits, granola, oatmeal, freshly made fruit juice, toasts and bread buns, real butter and marmelade, assortment of three types of cheese and two types of ham. We also offer eggs a la carte and ecuadorian coffee, it is buffet style. We are sorry that we didnt meet your expectations, but we will continue to work hard to improve our services. Our hotel is strategically located next to the board walk, the golden beach and many more natural attractions, offering an incredible sea view . saludos from San Cristobal, the enchanted island.

Very near the waters, you can hear the Sea Lions from the rooms. English speaking folks at the hotel are very helpful. Decent Breakfast. Several restaurants within walking distance and very reasonable rates. WiFi is OK, but at least available.
