We recently stayed 3 nights at the Galapagos Eco Friendly and had a warm experience. The hotel is clean, bright and welcoming, cool from the hot days, well maintained and has a varied and plentiful breakfast with fabulous ocean views. Harry and Lucrecia are excellent hosts and made sure we were happy. We recommend if you are looking for a great place to relax after a hectic cruise on the Galapagos as we were. Harry is also a Naturalist who is knowledgeable and helpful with all there is to do in the area.

A Galapagos cruise is wonderful and awe-inspiring, but can be very demanding with an inflexible schedule. As more and more visitors to Galapagos are learning, combining a cruise with a land-based experience allows the best of both worlds. On land, you set your own pace, have time to intimately learn about the island on which you are based and can immerse yourself in Galapagos culture. Lucrecia and I were thrilled to be a part of your adventure and to share our knowledge and love of the islands with you. It's clear that you appreciated our sanctuary! Thanks for your thoughtful review and wonderful words about Galapagos Eco Friendly. Harry and Lucrecia

We had the warmest welcome on our first visit to the Galapagos Islands. Unfortunately we missed the pick-up and Harry's tour due to our own fault. But appart from that we had such a great stay. Neat and spacey rooms with locker, a variety of fresh fruits in the morning and various specialties for breakfast. Whenever Harry had the change he gave us tips about the various sights and when we had an early tour, an early breakfast was no problem. (Only happy faces :)) Thank you so much for a warm welcome. (too bad we couldn't say that to you in person) We hope your son is doing better and who knows we might see you again. We had a great time with you!

Greetings Harry! I wanted to express my customer feedback on your amazing property. I read all of the reviews on trip advisor back in January 2019 before committing to book with you directly mid-February 2019. for my stay during mid-May 2019. I was able to negotiate with you on my hotel rate (dirt cheap) as I mentioned I was a solo traveler. You responded to my email inquires with 24 hours. 👍 Your flexibility as I was able pay for my hotel in full on Western Union with a fee so I didn't need to worry about bring too much cash $$$$ as I was worry someone will steal my cash en transit to the island. Your property is very clean as I see someone always cleaning. Your hot daily breakfast is fabulous for each hotel guests. Plus taking in the amazing view early during breakfast from the breakfast lounge seeing out to the Pacific Ocean. See my photos. You offered "free" airport & hotel collections for your hotel guests along w/taking your guests into town so I can rendezvous with my excursion tour that day. Harry, you made my stay on San Cristobal Islands superb! Definitely, I'll revisit in the near future as I must go on excursions to the other islands to explore. I wanted Thank you very much again my friend Harry. I highly recommend ALL other visitors who plan to stay on San Cristobal Island consider Galápagos Eco-Friendly Hotel as their first choice. It's only a ten minute walk to town from the hill up to the hotel or if you're lazy you get get a taxi for under $3 US bucks each way. I rather use the exercise walking and that extra money for my Happy Hour entertainment money. Best Regards, Charlie Kao

Your generous review is so appreciated by all of us here at Galapagos Eco Friendly. I'm personally so happy to hear that you have plans to return to Galapagos. Please let me know so that I can help you with your trip planning to other islands. To many, you will be able to use our hotel as a base. I'm very sensitive to traveler's needs and concerns regarding carrying cash, but all Galapagos visitors should know that both on land and on cruises there is virtually no problem with theft and we have ATM's in all of the towns. Thank you for staying with us, writing this wonderful review and sharing your photo. We can't wait to see you again. All the best, Harry and Lucrecia

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Galapagos Eco Friendly and had a great experience. The hotel is super clean, well kept and has a great healthy breakfast with ocean views! Harry and Lucrecia are such a loving couple and are always checking in on you to make sure you are well taken care of. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great place to relax and de-stress. Harry is also a Naturist and Tour Guide and extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all there is to do in San Cristobal and the surrounding islands.

Lucrecia and I are so happy to hear from you. When guests get to stay for a few days, we really have the opportunity to get to know you and make you part of our family. Then we miss you so much when you leave. You left us with happy memories! Thanks for all of you thoughts on Galapagos Eco Friendly and for mentioning my role as a certified Galapagos guide. Sharing all of Galapagos with our guests is truly my passion and I appreciated being able to make your vacation extra special. Fondly, Harry and Lucrecia

We’re so glad we chose to stay at the Galapagos Eco Friendly. It is a clean, vibrant and friendly place, built using sustainable materials with bright and interesting decor reflecting the local culture and environment. It has spacious rooms, comfortable beds, reliable air con, working Wi-Fi and hot water. We loved the outdoor seating with hammocks and chairs to relax in, as well as the hot tub. It’s just a 10 minute walk (or a short, $2 taxi ride) from the main street, in a safe and friendly area. Harry and Lucrecia are brilliant, attentive hosts, passionate about sustainability and highly accommodating of guests needs. They were very reliable and helpful with our ferry pick up and airport drop off, helping us with our many heavy bags! They were also very understanding and accommodating of our changing plans, going above and beyond to ensure our time was as stress-free as possible, whether it be adding rooms, storing our bags between stays or washing/drying our clothes, they were always ready and happy to help however possible. We had a great experience, and when we return to San Cristobal we will definitely stay again at the Galapagos Eco Friendly!
