We were visiting Ecuador and saw a sign in a travel agency
window that featured 4 days 3 nights at the Fiesta Hotel in the Galapogos including all meals,airfare and tours for $680
We were excited about the trip and quickly booked it The trouble. started when we arrived at the Hotel Fiesta.Our room
was simple and clean with two beds and a bathroom.The problem was there was no hot water in the bathroom.We understand that this is common with this type hotel
We then proceeded to the restaurant and were served what I would call prison food. There was no menu and the meals consisted of rice ,meat and vegatables.The meat would change
each day to either beef,pork chicken or fish. The portions served were controlled and they reluctantly gave you more only if you asked.
We sat down at a table with our food and were then served fruit
juice that had been watered down and had little taste
Both lunch and dinner were the same type of food.Breakfast
was usually a buttered roll or one egg with coffee
The biggest disapointment was the tours.In four days I saw
one turtle a couple of eguanas some birds and a volcanic sinkhole.
This was a cheap tour but I wish they had told us what we were getting for our money. As it turns out the best way to see the Galapagos is to stay on the cruise ships that anchor off each island.The food is better, you have hot water and you can see
a lot more animals.They of course cost more but but our cheap trip was a waste of money
