We had a very pleasant stay in the Galapagos Eco-Friendly. The hotel is quirky and also strong on environmental practices -- as you'd expect from the name. It is a bit out of town, and up a hill -- and on one occasion in the...More

Wow! Your praises of the hotel are more than I have words to thank you for. Nothing (not an exaggeration) makes me happier and more fulfilled than sharing my home and my wonderful Galapagos Paradise. So, when guests such as yourselves eagerly absorb the environment...More

12 minute walk up the hill from town might not be everybody's cup of tea, $1.50 in a cab or a quick call to Harry will solve this! Immaculate room, filtered water throughout, hot showers and a piping hot spa are standard here. The owner,...More

You are our family now and we miss having you with us immensely. Lucrecia and I consider Galapagos to be Paradise and the hotel and its surrounding grounds (where our home is located) to be our sanctuary. We want our guests to feel the same....More

We are so glad that you chose Galapagos EcoFriendly for your vacation. Of course, there's nothing quite like Kicker Rock and it's my favorite place to snorkel as well - right around the "corner" from San Cristobal harbor. And you got to see it all...More
