This is a beautiful little hotel far enough off the main strip to be quiet, but close enough to walk from the docks. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with reliable water pressure, decent wifi (considering the location of Santa Cruz) and a solid breakfast. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. There's even a small kidney shaped pool to...

Stayed here for a four night, five day visit to the Galapagos Islands. Most of my time was spent on day cruises to various islands and seeing the flora and fauna, but the time spent at the hotel was very comfortable. Breakfast is provided each day, but there is no onsite restaurant for lunch or dinner. This is not a...

We stayed at hotel Sante Fe for 2 nights after our Galapagos cruise, to enjoy Puerto Ayora and the island of Santa Cruz. It's a lovely, boutique hotel with 8 rooms, surrounding a quaint swimming pool in the centre courtyard, which was great to cool down in. The matron lives on site and speaks OK English. The rooms are decent...

Santa Fe is a lovely, boutique style Hostal on Santa Cruz island. The rooms are clean, well appointed, shower great, and the beds are large comfortable king size beds. The fact there is a pool is a huge advantage in such a hot sticky climate. We used it a lot! Breakfast is included, which was also very good. Overall a...

This is a terrific little family run hotel in Puerto Ayora. Close enough to everything but not in the middle of it all. Easy three to five minute stroll to shops, restaurants, the pier. Breakfast was amazing! Made to order eggs, lots of great fruit, breads, coffee, had and cheese. The pool was pristine and warm. The owners welcomed us...

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Santa Fe when we returned to Puerto Ayora after a few days on Isabela (we were in another hotel for our first few days in Puerto Ayora). The main reason we looked into Santa Fe in the first place was that it is the closest hotel to Tortuga Bay, and we liked...

I looked for hotel in Puerto Ayora which cost less than 170 USD per two people per night B&B, it was difficult to find a good one with good recommendations at this budget, since the price at Puerto Ayora are not cheap. Some hotels look good at the website but after we read some visitor reviews we avoid ordering them....

I can't fault this hotel at all. It is extremely clean and well looked after by the family who run and own it. The rooms are large and nicely decorated. The bed is comfy, and the wifi reasonably fast (fast enough to write this review). You can hire snorkeling equipment (3$ a day for fins). However, I would book this...
