This hotel is perfectly located in front of the peer. Center of town everything is accessible by foot. Rooms are big but a bit noisy, they also need a refresh. A little bit expensive but not many other options in town
- Free Wifi
- Breakfast included
we didn't stay in this hotel actually but every night we go there to get some cocktaiks or hot tea. The owners my us to feel in home they were nice and cordial with us all the time, everything was really clean. They offer fresh breakfast every morning. I really hope my next trip to the Island can stay in this wonderful place
Let's face it, if you're a young solo traveler, you're not going to find any backpacker hostel in San Cristobal. So for a hotel, this place is pretty nice. I paid for the honeymoon suite on the top floor, haha. You can get a much cheaper room, but for $80 a night it was well worth it. Great view of the bay.
All the rooms have nice aquatic paintings and artwork allover the walls. Cable TV if you can understand Spanish. Free breakfast at the Muana Coffee Bar below the hotel. Muana has some great food as well during the day.
Location, excellent. Convenience store and ATM across the street, restaurants and bars right around the corner. And you're right by the pier with all the cute aqua puppys (sea lions). Their constant barking may bother some but I find the little boogers so adorable it just made me laugh rather than annoy. You'll get used to it.
Internet access is available in the lobby room, but is very slow, if it works at all. But hey, you're in the Galápagos Islands. Forget about the internet for once!
We stayed two nights in this lovely hotel on arrival in Galapagos, before our cruise. It is charmingly decorated, perfectly located, comfortable, good value, and friendly - we were very satisfied. The only difficulty we had was in making a deposit to hold the reservation; the cost of sending funds to them was high compared to the overall cost of a short stay. It would be great if the hotel could figure out a better way to secure its reservations, either by credit card or using a hotel booking service. In every other respect, highly recommended.
I stayed a few nights at Casa Blanca as part of a small group. The location is excellent right on the waterfront. The family running it was cordial and the room was really comfortable (we had a nice balcony, not all rooms do).
Great stay. We found the casa blanca walking around the harbour and looking for a nice room. Lovely wall paintings. Love in every aspect of decor. No words needed. The ice-cream place next door offers free wi-fi but changes the password every couple of hours. We payed 70 usd a night for 2 adults and one infant, including breakfast which came with fresh eggs and juice. No words needed, just great.
The owner of Casa Blanca referred us to a restaurant just 2 blocks away into town called Marinero pescanco. There we also payed 18 usd like in the other restaurant ... but ... it was a FRESH AND HUGE LOBSTER! Great sides as well. I just couldn' t get enough of it and my mum had to hold me back from ordering a second one.
Especially great if you have kids as there were a couple of families sitting at the restaurant before the main dinner time and they had a childs tv on for the distration of the little one. This is a real little treasure. I hope that they will always keep up with their hight standards.
