Looks great on the Internet. I went in person to book a room and was quoted twice the price than booking online. But after my initial glimpse I liked the appearance and after visiting a few other hotels I booked a room here. When it came to check in we found that out room was pretty average, in the building...

Nice hotel. Great location. Friendly staff. Close to sea lions and the harbor. Breakfast buffet. Laundry service available which is a plys after a seven day cruise. Would definitely go back. Great base for exploring San Cristobal and Kicker Rock.

Although location was good, room left lot to be desired. Plaster was peeling off the walls, mildew above bed where picture frame was. When asked if another room was available, was quickly told no other rooms available. Food was decent and view from eating area very nice. All in all, you could do better!

This is a wonderful small boutique hotel right on the water front. We reached our hotel at lunch time and had a beautiful meal of ceviche and green plantains.

Although advertised as a hotel, it is really a bed and breakfast as no other meals were available and the bar was never staffed. Labeled a pensión in local information. It is a neat and clean place. Although they said that all but one room was full, we never saw more than 3-4 rooms occupied. So did not figure that... More
