We had the pleasure of staying in the eco lodge in San Cristobal for two nights. Eco lodge is located a ten minute walk from the main part of San Cristobal, in a quiet area (although there are a few roosters nearby which crow infrequently!)

The rooms were great, very clean and spacious. Amenities were good, and the breakfasts were very sumptuous. Lucreria was very helpful in providing transport even when we had to change our plans on short notice.

We loved our stay in Eco Lodge and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in San Cristobal.

John and Zita:
We appreciate your kind words and are very happy that your stay was a memorable one. One of the main principles of the lodge is personal service, so I was pleased to help you in any way possible. You know we'd love to have you back in our Paradise anytime. It was a pleasure having you at the Galapagos Eco-Lodge. Lucrecia

We stayed here for five nights for $50,- a night. They are still working on the lodge and only six rooms on the ground floor are finished. We didn't hear much noise from the construction but the view from the room is not very nice.
Great room with a huge bed, flat screen with cable, small refrigerator and microwave oven. Nice bathroom and a good hot shower. Excellent breakfast, every day something else; pancakes, fresh fruit with yoghurt and muesli, toast etc. Wifi is a bit spotty (we were in room 3), outside it's better.
Harry the owner is a guide and can give you advice on what to do on San Cristobal.
It is a 10-15 minute walk from the harbour, ask for Harry's place because the taxi's don't know the eco lodge.

Thank you so much for taking the time and attention to review the Galapagos Eco-Lodge. I hope that you are able to come back again some day to experience the new restaurant and upper level guest rooms. The view of the harbor will then be absolutely stunning. It was a pleasure having you with us and Lucretia and I are so happy that you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed having you with us. Harry

Whether you’re visiting Galapagos Islands on a cruise or base yourself on land you should definitely spend a few nights at Galapagos Eco Lodge on San Cristobal. This little gem is owned by a very well known naturalist and travel guide Harry Jimenez. Harry will make sure your stay at his hotel and on the Galapagos Islands is the most memorable vacation you’ve ever had. The rooms are very comfortable, well furnished and clean. You will find microwaves, small refrigerators and air conditioning in all rooms. The daily breakfast is simply delish!!! Harry’s knowledge is priceless! He will help you plan your trip, take you to the best diving and snorkeling places and also instruct you on photographing the amazing islands and its out-of-this world inhabitants – Harry will be delighted to share tips on getting those perfect photos as he is an avid photographer himself and you will find some of his most beautiful pictures throughout the Galapagos Eco Lodge.

TIna: It's a great pleasure to hear from you and I hope you are keeping up with your own beautiful photography. If you haven't yet, please take a look at the Galapagos Eco-Lodge blog spot as well. It talks about many of the places that we had the chance to tour, and about Galapagos generally. Thanks for your kind words. Harry

This gem of a bed and breakfast-style hotel is located about six blocks from the tourist wharf, slightly uphill, but well worth the walk or short cab ride. Host Harry Jimenez has paid careful attention to what travellers hope to find in a room, everything from the welcome glass of orange juice and big towels, to the microwave and small fridge, wardrobe, desk and chairs, all in a wonderfully spacious room. The king size bed alone was heavenly, bigger than the on-board cabin we just spent seven nights crammed into! Breakfast is also carefully thought out and prepared – we were there for three nights and there was a slight change each morning and lots of choice. The entrance area and guest rooms are complete, but the grounds are a work-in-progress as is a new third-floor dining room – however work proceeds only after breakfast and does not go late, so does not interfere with getting a great night’s sleep. Besides, Harry will do everything he can to make your stay an enjoyable one with lots of advice, help with organizing day-excursions, and even a ride to the airport (5 minutes away). If you’re doing a cruise that ends on San Cristobal Island, do consider staying a couple of nights in this quiet, low tourist-pressure town. When you grab a taxi, ask them to take you to Harry’s place!

Don: Thank you for this review of the Galapagos Eco-Lodge on San Cristobal Island. You know how excited we are about the renovations and the addition of the new restaurant and additional rooms, of course always using recycled, local and indigenous materials. With all of the beautiful visitor sites on and around San Cristobal, I look forward to leading many special day trips from the hotel so that our guests can enjoy both the pleasure of the Galapagos sites as well as the immersion into our culture. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit and making you comfortable and feel at home. All the best to you. Harry Jimenez
