The location is good, but the rooms are really not that great (quite small and they don't look that good). Also, when we arrived, we had to wait a bit for the room keys, and the outside area smelled quite bad.

This is our second time staying at the Hotel fiesta. We stayed there 10 years ago and again this month. Since we were two families, we stayed in two cabins. The cabins were nice and clean. We did not have time to enjoy any of the other facilities because we were busy all the time. The hotel is within walking distance from the trail that goes to "tortuga bay". Breakfast was fabulous!

The location of this hotel is great. It's quiet and a short stroll to the water, shops and restaurants. Although the hotel looked nice from the outside and reception & restaurant area, we were disappointed with our room. It was very small, the air-con was exceptionally noisy and the cover just fell off during the night, the tv was tiny and all in all the furnishings are in need of an upgrade. The reception staff was friendly but the breakfast was very poor. We stated that we didn't eat meat or dairy and they simply removed those items, leaving us with only bread and jam to eat. Not even any fruit! The pool area was quite nice. We would have rated this hotel a little higher if the price was about 30% lower. Not the best value for money for the price.

This is a very cute hotel on a quiet street just a two minute walk from the water, the main pier and the walking path to Tortuga Bay. The pool is very nice and the rooms are a great value, with air conditioning and cable TV. The best part about the hotel is the service. Housekeeping is excellent and the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful, especially to those of us who don't speak Spanish. This was a last minute booking since my other hotel canceled on me a week before my trip, and I couldn't be happier about it. If I'm ever lucky enough to make it back to the Galapagos Islands I will definitely be staying here.

We had a lovely 4 night stay in a double room - it's not a luxury hotel but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The hotel is 5 mins walk from the seafront down a very quiet side street - fairly near to the Tortuga Bay walkway entrance. The pool was great to have after a day's sightseeing and the gardens and communal areas are charming.
The room was clean and insect-free. Air-con worked fine, TV was very small but you don't go to the Galapagos to watch TV. The staff were very welcoming and friendly (not everyone speaks English) and can arrange taxi tours for you. The laundry service was fine - there are two modern computers for guests and free drinkable water. Breakfast was good - a nice combination of fruit, cereal and cooked breakfast.

Hotel Fiesta is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the port and the main area of town.
The staff are really friendly and helpful, we actually ended up extending out stay as we liked the hotel so much.
Our room was big, with a really comfy bed, there was a desk, air con worked well, there was also a TV (although we didn't use it), bathroom had nice hot water and the room was cleaned daily to an excellent standard.
Breakfast was good, the pool was nice and clean, they also have a pool table and table tennis table by the pool.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This is in a great location. The Staff is really great. The problem is that it is just in need of some fix up. It is reasonably priced. The area around the pool needs to be maintained and spruced up. It has potential
