We stayed at this hotel while on the Travelzoo: Red Mangrove - Darwin's short triangle travel deal. It was a fantastic deal complete with great logding, guides and all tranfsers and food included. The diver's lodge is a short 5 min walk to the main Red Mangrove Adventura property. They have free bikes you can borrow which was really awesome as we took them all over town and were really helpful when getting to Tortuga Bay. Some of the bikes arent in the greatest condition but they get you from point A to B well enough and they are free so you cant really complain. They also have free snorkel equipment you can borrow as well. The food was good and the rooms are very spacious. We didnt have hot water one night but we told the front desk and they fixed it so we had hot water the rest of the trip. we also notified the front desk that there were some small wasp nests near our room and they were removed the next day. I was amazed that there were no bugs at all in our room. The rooms were spotless and our drinking water jug was refilled ever day and there are drinking water dispensers outside to fill your bottles or you can get a cold bottle of water in the dining area.
We booked a day trip to North Seymore Island through Land, Sea & Heaven which was a little travel shop just outside of the Diver's Lodge and Jonathan was excellent and went out of his way to take care of us. He even dropped us off at the pier one day and hailed us a water taxi when he found out we wanted to go to las grietas.
The staff at Red Mangrove are all incredibly helpful and very pleasant and when travelling between islands we never had to worry about our luggage as they would port the bags back and forth for us. There is a resident sea lion family that loves to sleep on the deck near the water every day which we're so cute. I highly recommend this hotel.
