The hotel was nice and open. We had bugs in our room - they didn't bite - just annoying. You could only get wifi in lobby and it was sporadic. All food was on the top floor with good views of the area. Close to get downtown and staff very friendly. Owner of hotel also owns Otoyo Organic farm so...

The Galapagos Planet is literally two blocks from the Airport on San Christabol Island, but then EVERY place is pretty close to the airport. The Planet is a one of the nicer hotels on the island, and one of the pricey ones as well. They charge about $90 per person per night with a nice breakfast included. There is internet...

The staff here are fabulous but the location lets it down a little as it is on a street with a lot of building work going on. Hopefully this will not go on too long and certainly noise wasn't a problem. The breakfasts were good and we were given a lot of helpful advice about what to do. Good value...

This was by far the best hotel on the Ecuador Galápagos island trip. Multiple hammocks and beautiful open air views. Rooms were comfortable . Walking distance from shopping & restaurants. Beautiful art work on every floor . Water cooler available, and a nice breakfast , no meat , but fresh jam.

A perfect stay that met our personal needs! The owner of the hotel also owns an organic farm with all breakfast offerings for the most demanding palates cooked-to-order! The concierge, Ashley, speaks five languages fluently and has to be one of the most attentive people in the hospitality industry. Ask for their tour to the organic farm for lunch along...

The very friendly staff went out of their way to be helpful. Hotel is very clean and from what we saw of other hotels, probably in a league of its own. The food was excellent.
