Harry is a very welcoming host in what is a very comfortable hotel. It feels more like you are being welcomed to his home. Great views from the terrace where you are greeted for breakfast - also being very accomodative to diet restrictions. Only a short distance from main town,

The hotel is located directly next to our house, all within a gated private enclave - which explains why, indeed, you felt like you were welcomed to our home. Upon arrival, guests are told that if we are not in the office, they should come to our house to find us - open doors to all. From start to finish, we just loved having you stay with us and very much appreciate your taking the time to write such a superb recommendation. All the best. Hasta luega (we hope) Harry and Lucrecia

Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The outdoor space was great to relax in after a busy day in the outdoors. Harry was a fantastic host. He picked us up at the airport and deposited us at the ferry at the end of our stay at no extra charge. He helped arrange our tours

Bob and Susan: Thank you for your great review. We certainly were happy to accommodate your timing and loved having you as our guests. We're so satisfied that you loved your tours in and around San Cristobal. I find it a shame when, unlike you, travelers to Galapagos don't get a chance to experience the beauty and serenity of actually living on an island for a few days. Having you with us was a blessing. Happy Travels. Harry and Lucrecia

What a great review - for which we can't thank you enough. It's particularly helpful that you had a chance to compare the service and accommodations at Galapagos Eco Friendly with others in Galapagos. Our objective is to provide luxurious accommodations and service at a reasonable price so that you get the full experience of our beautiful Paradise. We were sad to see you leave. Again, thanks so much. Harry and Lucrecia

Thank you for reviewing Galapagos Eco Friendly. I learned when we talked that you have been quite an adventurous traveler with worldwide experience, but having looked at your many TripAdvisor reviews, I've learned even more about the way your approach travel and the world - and from the fact that you are looking for a luxurious travel experience. That we are among the places to which you have given a five-star review gives me great pride in knowing that we have met and maybe exceeded your expectations. Thank you for joining us at our hotel and providing us with the opportunity to get to know you and show you our beautiful San Cristobal Island. Harry and Lucrecia

Harry and his wife are wonderful hosts. They picked us up and dropped us off from the airport and the ferry, they arranged for tours, they had good suggestions. We started off our two week trip staying here and it was the perfect introduction to the islands. I highly

Lucrecia and I loved having you at the hotel with us and were pleased to be your hosts for the beginning of your Galapagos adventure. That way we got to introduce you to some of your trip highlights and to share our observations and ideas for the remainder of your journey. I hope the rest of your stay was equally exciting and stimulating. Thanks for the great review. Harry
