We booked the 6 day/5night tour which started 1 night in Santa Cruz, 3 nights in Isabela, and the final night back in Santa Cruz. For us, it was a great value because our excursions were incredible, trips to locations like los tuneles y tintoreras are not to be missed. So many nooks and crannies in the lava where life... More

Overall we loved Red Mangrove Aventura! I went with a couple girlfriends, and we enjoyed the stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. At the beginning of our stay, my room overlooked the sea lions on the patio and the water, which was a beautiful view despite the tropical, rainy weather for part of the view. The service was mostly... More

The all-inclusive nature of this makes it a little hard to work out value for money, and my one-night stay didn't quite fit their model of operation. They did give me a deep discount but it still felt quite expensive as I didn't partake in any of the included activities. However, I just had to stay here for the sea... More

We stayed at this hotel from August 2 to august 6, 2016. This hotel, has the best location at the Galapagos. You can enjoy your meals on the terrace, which is "in" the water. The sea Lions live on the terrace with the Inguanas.. Amazing experience.. The staff at the hotel are very service minded. When we arrived, we got... More

We visited Red Mangrove with a party of about 22. They handled all the details. Our room was the Suite Mayor, the best in the resort, our friends some with not even a window and no real privacy. Good housekeeping for a dive resort. Events scheduled were fun. The food was average. The ppl. At the resort are mostly Spanish... More

If you are interested in adventure, especially SCUBA diving, this is a great place to visit. All the rooms are unique and different. The property is well maintained and the staff is attentive and helpful. It was also helpful that they had staff meet us at the Quito and Galápagos airports, who guided us every step of the way.

One off the most spetacukar stays I have ever had on a hotel. And I have stayed a lot off places. The most amazing thing is the hotels design and location, that allows it to fusion with nature. You see sealions and sea leguanas on the terasse. In the water we saw sea turtles mating. Pelikans was crossing in the... More

The experience here was awesome! This was including in our Darwin Adventure Package tour. Viator messed up our reservation by not remitting payment for the tour to Red Mangrove. Red Mangrove still made sure we followed our original itinerary and scheduled our tours even though they were not paid on time. They wanted to make sure our stay was uneventful.... More

The staff are really friendly, helpful and courteous. The wifi is of very decent speed (although its available only in the restaurant area and the two rooms adjoining the restaurant), I did not expect that speed, so was v happy to post pics. The Hotel is basic and clean, breakfast is decent and the restaurant food reasonable. Your tour package... More
