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 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.... 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. Also they provided free cold water so you didn't need to buy bottled water if you have something like a camel back. The staff were very good at letting... More

This is a small, family run hotel which is very well kept overall. The rooms are large and have good AC, and nicely appointed bathrooms with good water pressure and hot water. Suites have a decent kitchen which would serve you well for a long stay. You can easily walk to the restaurants and Port area. They run an extensive... More

Stayed two nights before departing on our cruise. Super relaxed, comfortable and clean. Coffee, breakfast, great hosts. Location was very good. Quick walk to the center of town and the grocery store. Perfect place to rest.
