“Still the best option in Puerto Ayora”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Angermeyer is the top choice in Puerto Ayora - great quiet waterfront location, just a short water taxi ride from downtown and a short walk from a small beach; very nice restaurant (excellent homemade ice creams...) and above all perfect guest attention. We were pampered all the time. Having said this keep in mind that nevertheless the level of confort of standard rooms and common facilities are those of an average 3 stars hotel (upgrading to the sea facing rooms of the main building is a good decision), and you will cope with the islands structural problems (like stinking tap water, catatonic internet, etc). But you won’t find better in Puerto Ayora (as far as I know Iguana Crossing, in Isabela Island, is the only hotel in the Galapagos that approaches the international 5 stars standards).

My husband and I stayed 3 nights.
We felt spoiled rotten (and perhaps a bit out of place in backpacks) the entire time.
The waterfront location was perfect - a short water taxi from town (=quiet) and an interesting 20 min walk to las Grietas (wow!) which we had all to ourselves each morning.
The Media Luna room was just big enough, spotless, and came with an amazing view of the harbour. One floor up, the shared rooftop deck was rarely used and had the complete stunning 360.
The included breakfast buffet was substantial and delicious.
We would stay here again if budget allowed.

We stayed here three nights prior to a cruise. Loved the place and it was absolutely beautiful. Everything exceeded our expectations. The room was clean and bright with a wonderful balcony overlooking the harbor. The water taxi was just an added bonus. Breakfast was good and plentiful. We loved walking around Puerto Ayora and seeing the sea lions. I really want to go back!

We stayed for 2 nights in the "Southern Wind" room (on the 3rd floor with a balcony and a jacuzzi tub). The room was spacious, airy, and very clean. It was cleaned during the day and then in the evening it was prepared for the night (curtains drawn, night lights turned on, etc.). The view from the balcony is beautiful. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The property was just beautiful. The room was amazing. The only negative comment is that we had reserved a waterfront table for a nice quiet dinner and instead had the most obnoxious child (not even a toddler) that was running all around our table and the rest of the outside area and when they were seated he was extremely loud and totally ruined the atmosphere of our meal. The food was great, but I think that something should have been said or they could have been moved to a table away from other patrons. The following morning we had the "pleasure" of his company yet again during breakfast. That was my only complaint and not entirely the fault of the restaurant.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Media Luna - the view was great. The room was a bit small, but certainly adequate...

We really enjoyed our stay at Angermeyer. We stayed 5 nights in the Tortoise room with beautiful views out our windows of the water. Our room and bathroom were very clean and spacious. They provided clean towels daily. The room had a mini fridge, small safe, and great wifi access. We loved taking just a few steps out of our room and being right at the hotel restaurant or dock to pick up a water taxi into town. The water taxis were available any time without a wait and only cost $.60 during the day and $1 at night each way. The breakfast buffet was wonderful every morning. We loved eating breakfast outside watching the boats in the bay, marine iguanas swimming, and birds diving to get fish.

During our stay I got sick with strep throat, and the hotel was extremely helpful. Santiago (hotel employee) was available all night to bring me hot tea and he asked if I wanted him to go to the pharmacy at 2am to get me anything. In the morning the hotel receptionist came to my breakfast table and asked if I would like an appointment with the hotel owner’s personal doctor. I declined and asked for help guiding me to a pharmacy and writing down the translation of the antibiotic I needed. I really appreciated the attention to my comfort and well being during our stay. I highly recommend this hotel for the wonderful service and the views.

We went here in the middle of November and absolutely loved the hotel and staff. They were super nice and attentive. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The food at the restaurant had the best Galapagos lobster we had on any island. We were very happy to be there during the season for the lobster. The breakfast buffet was a great start to our long days. We enjoyed the finches stopping by on our balcony and on the railings for breakfast. During dinner we noticed a sea turtle swimming by. What a perfect atmosphere. We didn't mind the water taxi to and from the main wharf and it was only $ .60 or $1 depending on the time and very easy to catch.

We will definitely stay here when we go back to Santa Cruz.

Room Tip: Ocean breeze has awesome views and a balcony (shared with tropic birds) balcony.
