We booked the Galápagos Eco Friendly based on all of the trip advisor reviews. Our experience did not match the experiences noted by other travelers. The building is very clean, well appointed and overall an enjoyable place to stay. We were met at the dock by Lecrecia and driven by taxi to the hotel. We were quickly escorted to our... More

Sadly, that is anything but the case with your review. The first rule of valid criticism is providing a correct, complete and truthful explanation - you did none of these things.... More

We stayed 6 nights here in a very clean, comfortable and well equipped room. Good wi-fi, AC, great bed. The staff was very helpful in connecting us to two of the best tours we had during our islands' stay: Espanola and Kicker Rock/Cerro Brujo. It is not easy to get a day trip to Espanola but the owner did in... More

You couldn't have come to Galapagos at a better time of year. The Waved Albatross, as you know, can be seen only one place in the entire world and that is Espanola where they mate and raise their chicks. And this year, the babies are prolific. We would have moved mountains (or volcanoes!), let alone make a phone call on... More

We (family of 3) stayed at the Ecolodge for seven nights last March, and can wholeheartedly recommend it. It was comfortable, clean, quiet and Harry and his wife went above and beyond to ensure our stay was excellent. (Harry was away for most of our stay, but his wife took very good care of us). Breakfasts, as everyone mentions, are... More

I stayed at this hotel for three nights before my Galapagos cruise. The rooms were very clean and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The downstairs courtyard is great for kids. There are hammocks and a hot tub. I would highly recommend it!!
