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... More

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... More

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... More

Considering that in the Galapagos islands the number of hotels is small and mostly there are hostels, this facility is reasonable. Rooms are clean, have air conditioning, and breakfast is regular. It's also very well located in a quite area which is close to most tourist agencies and transportation. My main drawback is that the rooms are so close that... More

Hotel Santa Fe is a relatively small property located only a few blocks from the downtown area in Puerto Ayora. The hotel is quiet and extremely clean. The owners pay attention to the smallest detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I would be very pleased to stay at the Santa Fe again.

Rooms were nice and clean, and the location provided nice amenities such as beach towels for day use on request, and they had a community area stocked withe coffee and tea.
