Clean and comfortable hotel next to the pier and main street. The chill area is also confortable. The rooms were tidy and big, with all the facilities. The Internet was not good though. Also, the tours they offer are funny and the staff is very kind and helpful. Overall, a place recommendable. We stayed 4 nights.

We stayed at Hotel Ninfa for 5 nights overall during our amazing trip to the Galapagos Islands. The rooms are completely renovated and very spacious. The staff, Alfredo the owner, Robert the manager and every single employee, are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and included what you need to start your day. The location is unbeatable. Right near... More

3 nights. Hotel is very centrally situated, 5 minute walk to the pier and the tourist area. Another 5 minutes gets you to the Darwin reserve and a great swimming beach. Plenty of sea lions and iguanas along the way. Hotel has a pool and a great breakfast and a couple of water jugs to fill your water bottles. Internet... More

Nice hotel with covered bar area, pool tables and eating area. Many ants, but hard to deal with because it is common near the ocean. Beds are low but comfortable, and air conditioning takes some figuring out. Water is tricky too, just keep on center for warmer water.

Arrived on a short 3 days trip to Galapagos on June 12th. The hotel is located in a central area not far from the main docks. Here are a few pros and cons of Hotel Ninfa. Pro 1. Location - Centrally located in Puerta Ayora. You can walk to just about anywhere in town in no more than 20 minutes.... More

Stayed here for the last two nights we were on the Galapogas Islands. Hot water and air con rooms, plus a private double with ensuing was perfect after staying in a couple of hostels for the prior 5 days we were on the islands.

I stayed for a week using it as a base to visit the other islands in the Galapagos. I had a bad experience at first, I was given a room infested with ants. I enquired at the front desk and was given a new room. Other than this I had no other issues. The rooms in the old wing of... More

This hotel is perfect for budget travelers interested in a quiet location right at the port. For what it is, it deserves our 5 stars. Our time in this paradise was limited to two full days. Owner Alfredo expertly assisted us with a Galapagos land tortoise tour the morning of the first day followed by a guided bay tour in... More

First of all I want to say the staff and owners were excellent. This is a family run hotel and they look after you. When we arrived my wife was sick and it was hot. Robert quickly took charge and helped us so much. We had a room just steps from the pool and this was very good. Cleanliness seems... More
