Hotel San Vicente,
Review of Hotel San Vicente.
My husband and I booked a land tour of the Galapagos Islands through Nature Galapagos & Ecuador ( an Equador company) choosing the "tourist class " option. We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights.
The room was more like a 4 star hotel than the 3 star it is rated as. It was a very clean, large modern room with bathroom and shower. We were comfortable and slept really well every night despite others complaining of roosters crowing and such. The beds were clean, remade every day. There was air- conditioning which is very important as the temperatures were between 30 & 36. At the end of every day a fresh jug of water greeted us in our room.
Meals were served at the hotel. T Except for one luncheon, all food was tasty. Food tends to be more simple here with fish and chicken as main menu choices and that suited us just fine.
All the staff except the heavy-set lady behind the front desk were wonderfully friendly and eager to help us. That lady needs to take a hospitality course. She was a sergeant major.
Unfortunately we spoke little Spanish and used our dictionary a lot. It helps to learn some basic phrases before leaving home. The guides usually know some English but they are not always at the hotel.
This hotel far exceeded our expectations in quality and service and we would recommend it highly to any of our friends.
There was always a wonderful atmosphere around the hotel with many tourists from every part of the world laughing, trying to speak another language and having meals together.
