“Clean and reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Mercedes runs a great little guesthouse here. It is immaculate and she is more than willing to help out with any issues. She loaned us towels to go scuba diving and would have done much more, but we don't speak Spanish. The price was awesome for the value received, and we will miss this place as we move on to Isabella. Her son studies at University of Missouri and she enjoys showing off her photos.
The town is a little noisy at night, but I don't think you can escape that for this price, especially being just a block away from the interisland water taxi pier. Be sure to visit the Interpretation Center and take their lovely paved pathway through the woods and up the hill.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 which had a private bath and seperate bedroom / kitchen area for $30 a night. Th...

My husband, Jim, and I were thrilled to stay with our University of Missouri International student's family!!! Our visit with them was so personal and the location and hospitality was the very best. Nelson is a park ranger and he added so much to our stay. Mercedes took us to the interior and they both shared their experiences in the Galapagos. Casa Mabell is perfectly located, one block from the main street and the dock where we boarded Archepell 1 for an eight day cruise after spending 3 nights at Casa Mabell. Before boarding the catamaran the family suggested that we take a day trip to Leon Dormido which was fenominal!! Sharks, rays, turtles, etc. were with us during our swim with an excellent guide. Our two rooms were large, airconditioned, very clean with a kitchen & refrigerator.... and perfect for our stay. Gracias, Nelson Y Mercedes!!! Uds. son lo maximo!!!!

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise. Peaceful.
