When visiting the Galapagos you'll face the dilemma of taking a cruise or to stay in an island and make it your base camp. We opted for thie one and chose the Galapagos Habitat as our hotel. Overall it was the right choice. Rooms are comfortable and clean, their restaurant has a LOVELY deck where sea lions take a nap and its location is quiet and relaxing. Since we travelled with our kids, a pool or a jacuzzi would have been great but, fortunately, we took several day cruises that allowed us to enjoy the water!

I just returned from a trip to Puerto Ayora and we had a wonderful stay at Galapagos Habitat. It truly had everything we needed - it was right on the main street (walking distance to everything) but just a little off the beaten path for some privacy and gorgeous grounds. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay, and they truly were the nicest people. The room was surprisingly large with a big bathroom and extra large shower. The highlight of this hotel was the outside deck with so much nature. We had a delicious breakfast that was included with our stay outside on water every morning and could see sea lions, lizards, birds, and many fish right below us. At night, we had drinks on the water and saw sting rays, baby black tip sharks, and even more sea lions. Galapagos Habitat was truly incredible and I highly recommend it to those looking to stay in Puerto Ayora!

Absolutely loved this place. The staff, the food, our room and the sea lions were all amazing and wonderful. One of the best parts were the evening sunsets eating on the deck. I'm trying to decide if this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in, but that's up for grabs at the moment. As an added benefit, it was easy to walk to almost everywhere, the Darwin Research Center, into "town" for shopping or more food, or just out to walk. As a nice touch, they had a great place so we could wash out out snorkeling gear! Simply put, this was amazing. Period.

I stayed here for three nights in February 2021 as part of a small Classic Journeys tour. The setting is sort of jungle eco-lodge with an assortment of rooms on the ground and second floors. The air conditioning worked well and the showers were nice too. There is a small mini fridge with a limited selection of drinks and snacks which are complimentary. If you want more, then you are charged. My room was next to the sun deck that has been appropriated by the sea lions, which made sure I did not miss a moment of Galapagos daylight by announcing their presence at around 6:30am each morning. The sea lions are so prevalent that the room across from me had a sea lion that would lay right outside their door, which made coming and going a bit tricky at times. Personally I enjoyed the local fauna, iguanas are abundant too. The staff was friendly and helpful, when they can be. I found the restaurant food excellent with good variety and the water views are lovely. I especially liked the Blackberry daquiris and all the fun weird fruit juices at breakfast. This would have been a five star review but for the last night. A hard rain came down while we were having sangrias in the restaurant. Once sufficiently sangria-d, I ran back to my room and struggled to get in with the key that had been sticky throughout my stay. Well the key broke in the lock. There was no one available who could actually fix the problem so I had to sleep the last night with an unlocked door. Was I afraid of someone coming in? No. But it wasn't ideal. Also, the hard rain caused water to come up through the drain and flood the bathroom area. Overall, a nice stay with some unique issues. The Galapagos were amazing!

Dear @ChicagoAlli, Thank you for your comment, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Galapagos Habitat Hotel and that you appreciated so much the presence of the sea lions and the iguanas around! Thank you also for your daiquiris recommendation! We are also very sorry for the key situation. After so much time with the hotel closed we are still working hard in maintenance and fixing little things that come up! The good news is that little by little the operations in Galapagos are reactivating and fortunately soon we'll have most of the population in Galapagos vaccinated! Hope to have you with us in the future! Best wishes,

This superbly located, very well managed hotel offers everything anyone visiting the Galapagos might hope for! Perched directly on protected water, it is (literally) home to a number of the creatures one comes to see: sea lions, finches, and iguana, among others! While it's ideally located within easy walking distance of the town, Puerto Ayora, and the nearby Darwin Research Center, it's snuggled among mangroves that lend it surprising privacy. And for essential daily activities at sea, the hotel's handsome, well-fitted powerboat, Windrose, is a perfect waterborne counterpart. This property is the Whole Package!
