“Exactly what I wanted”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I spent 3 nights at Galapagos Suites, and it was my favorite of the 5 different properties I stayed at. Keep in mind that I stayed at everything from a hostel to a $300 / night hotel overlooking the ocean - and this places bested everything. Breakfast was good, the room was spotless and the owners could not have been more accommodating. If I go back to the islands, and I certainly hope to, I will stay here as much as I can!

It's a small hotel 4 blocks away from the best restaurants, stores, the bank and everything, the owner Joseline is amazing, her attention is great, friendly, helpfully, really a very good experience.
The breakfast isn't a buffet but it has fresh fruits, bread, eggs, milk, natural juices, home cakes, and a special home taste.
The room it's the best, comfortable, clean, quiet, warm, perfect for a couple trip.
You don't need take a tour before your travel, Joseline can make all your plans and reservations before you arrive, she knows the people that can help you in all you want do in your vacations.
I recommend totally

My husband and I recently stayed at Galapagos Suites in Puerto Ayora. It was a great stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a bed and breakfast type place. Very central to the town and spotlessly clean!! The breakfast was excellent. Great place to stay before or after heading off on a cruise or to another island.

We stayed for 7 nights in July, 2013 and loved it! The rooms are large, impeccably clean and airy. Breakfasts are wholesome and good. Mother and daughter (the owners) were most helpful in getting us acquainted with where to go in and around Puerto Ayora as well as other islands. They are both very knowledgeable about the Galapagos and Ecuador in general. It was always a treat to come home each day to this beautiful place. It felt like home.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor which was very airy. The 2nd floor would be as well. I don't know a...

This little place is the best kept secret. If would have to be due to the ladies who run the place- Joceline and Jose. The service level, cleanliness, location and grounds are truly amazing. The breakfast each day fresh, local and quick. The Housekeeping was thorough, prompt and consistent. The location is within walking distance to anything you may want- restaurants, shopping, attractions. The Serviceis off the charts even before you arrive and it just continues during your stay.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the lower room in the corner as it had a hammock on the porchand a clothes line if needed...

My two sons (12 and 16), my husband and I stayed at the Galapagos Suites for four nights in late June, 2013. We were extremely happy there. The rooms were beautiful, well-appointed, squeaky clean, and thoughtfully managed. Josey, who lives there, is warm, articulate, and a good cook. She was helpful with every aspect of our stay in this new place. Thanks to her, we enjoyed many side trips and felt both safe and welcomed in Santa Cruz. We have travelled extensively, and wholeheartedly recommend the Galapagos Suites.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the second floor rooms, sunny with porches and hammocks.

We stayed here for 3 nights in January & had the most pleasant stay out of our whole South American trip. Everything about this place is perfection. Beautiful comfortable clean room, the most delicious & nutritious breakfasts, excellent location just a short walk to the waterfront & restaurants, and the owner Joseline is such a lovely lady who ensures you feel welcome & have the best stay possible. Couldn't recommend this place more, you will love it. Thank you Joseline.
