We booked an all inclusive land-based tour through a travel agency in New York. Hotel Tortuga was the home base for this tour and we couldn't be happier. The manager, Carlos, made sure that we were well taken care off. We were given personal attention - most of our tours included just my family and the hotel staff personally accompanied...

We went for a family vacations to Galapagos and we choose this hotel we were really disappointed for the location of the hotel is really far from downtown you must use taxis for move. You need to think that you will not expend much time at the hotel so you do not need a fancy hotel instead look for something...

I stayed in this hotel with a group of friends, and we had a terrible experience. Noone at least tried to speak any other language (we tried 3 more, apart from Spanish), which is odd for such an international place. Besides that, the manager tried to rob us many times. The website said the hotel offered breakfast, but I've never...

Terrible experience. Pictures on internet are nice but not reflective reality. The pool is dirty and you dont even wanna put your toe in there. Room is unfresh, bathroom have bad smell and is mouldy. Breakfast restaurant has low standard, but croissant and egg were eatible. Staff dont speak English. Way too expensive. Dont book here.

My 10 year old daughter and I spent two evenings at this hotel. I had booked through the Latin Trail Tours and asked for a hotel in the $75-$100 range. I was charged $90/night for a room with two single beds, which in comparison to other hotels I stayed in on the Galapagos Islands was way too much. The staff...
