My wife and I had the misfortune of staying in Galapagos safari camp in March of this year, not only was the customer service terrible, but the food was a joke- very small portions which may be a positive given how horrible the quality of the food was. The nightly rate was very pricey, which would be ok if it...

This place is an oasis in the highlands of Santa Cruz island. The hotel staff are all incredibly attentive and gracious. No problem is too small for them, and they take the time to talk about your day. The activities are all curated by the staff, and extremely well planned. It truly feels like an island based safari. The food...

To be fair we had just come off of a tour which entailed top of the line hotels, tours and yacht so this was a grounding for us. The tents could be stifling during hot months. There is a decent uphill climb to the main building. The staff made up for any shortfalls by helping us with our plans and...

We had the trip of a lifetime in the Galapagos! We stayed for four nights at the Galapagos Safari Camp and were treated like royalty! Katerin and her staff are the most detail-oriented, friendly, capable, intuitive crew! From the second we were met at the airport to the moment we left, we were in fabulous hands. Our guides as well...

We stayed at Galapagos Safari Camp for two nights as part of a tour with the Galapagos Conservancy. It was a stellar experience. The luxury tents are well-appointed and the view is beautiful. We got to sleep in a mosquito net fitted bed and awoke to the peaceful sounds of birds. No raucous birds, either. Just the soft songs of...

From the moment we arrived (just in time for a sunset cocktail at the pop up bar on the observation deck) until we left, we felt like we were in a very special part of the world. All of the staff were incredibly attentive and really cared about making our (and the other guests) stay memorable. All of the meals...

Fabulous experience! We just loved the Safari Camp. First and foremost, Katrein is salve for a very weary soul. She is so kind, so gracious. And her young assistant, Chris, was a joy to be around. The food was phenomenal. Perfect portion size and the sauces were incredible. The service great, the atmosphere relaxing, and everyone was accommodating in every...

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the safari camp, and we cannot say enough about our incredible experience. As described by other reviewers, we too were whisked from the airport and welcomed with cold towels and an introduction to our fabulous guide "Soto".

The accommodation is luxury tents, similar to safari camps in Africa, very good size, a king size bed and...
