On booking.com, it states that this Hotel is Called Collona Gallapagos Boutique Hotel. Looking at the photos the hotel looks nice and you get seduced by the word "Boutique".

The location was not ideal for us. there is one main beach a 2 min walk away but we didn't like it so chose to drive to try the other beachs. You really need a car to stay here but there is free parking. At night it did not feel safe to walk to the centre as the route was quite poorly lit & there were several very steep...
