A nice location in Puerto Ayora with sounds from the sea coming through the little balcony doors to the rooms. Large rooms but a little worn. Nice staff. Intermittent WiFi - which is usual on the islands.

This place has a great location, friendly staff and nice swimming pool. However, some improvements could be made. These are: 1) Renovate or repaint the hotel. It is beginning to look dated. 2) Make sure that doors from balcony to rooms are fully closed. Now they have many openings to let air through. Unfortunately, this also results in sound coming...

Really nice hotel. Open air swimming pool in reception and a closed one round the corner. Our room was on third floor with a shared mezzanine floor with great views over the harbour and with loungers. Serve breakfast and meals. Great location and room was lovely with air-conditioning and TV. Staff were friendly

Family friendly feel with indoor pools in central areas. Friendly staff. Unbeatable location right in the centre of town near the waterfront. Stroll down to the fish market in the morning and watch the seals & penguins beg for scraps! Note: rooms facing the mangroves have slat windows through which mosquitos can enter. The wifi at this hotel was also... More

We've actually stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions. The first was when we missed the last boat to Isabella and we needed a place to stay (2010). Both times were very nice. The service was friendly and breakfast is included. When in Galapagos we really only need a place to sleep and have breakfast before adventuring around. There... More

We stayed her for three nights during our tour of the Galapagos Islands. it was nice enough with nothing tremendous to recommend it. Both times my husband and I were placed in a room with only twin beds even though larger beds were available (although that was probably more likely the fault of our tour guide). Decent seating in the... More

You can't say it's a grand hotel, but still good clean and a simple hotel. For some rooms there's an amazing view of the shore and the rooms are ok. Warmth of the shower water is pretty hard to control but it's pretty good compared to the other hotels/hostels in galapacos. Breakfast is pretty simple but the food is still... More

The location is not far from the pier and easy walking around to various sites and shopping and dining. Rooms are large as are the bathrooms. We had a small balcony off the room which was nice for sitting as there are no chairs in the room. Room was clean and everything worked. Air conditioner was very loud. Wifi is... More

Room 10 had a view of the harbour. Lonely Planet says the room aren't that grand, but my room was large with 2 double beds - comfortable with fresh linen and good pillows, a balcony and a large bathroom with hand soaps and shampoo.

This is a nice, clean hotel in a good location near the main street and pier. The price is very reasonable given location and quality--I don't think you can beat it.
