Reviewed December 18, 2013

I was given a nice large room with a king size bed. Friendly staff, walking distance to town although everything pretty much is. Nice pool. Quiet environment. Great price. I would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: I was in room # 2. Nice and quiet. Comfortable, good WiFi although not secure.

We found this place just by walking through it. At first we thought it will be too expensive for us as everything looked so nice - but it wasn't. Very nice place to stay! Delicious breakfast and especially friendly family! It was few nice days of our honeymoon there - recommend it without hesitation!

We got to this hotel totally by chance and couldn't be happier.
I traveled with few friends to Galapagos in May-June 2013. Our original plans were to stay in Isabella, but my language with scuba gear did not arrived so we decided to stay in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz. Our taxi driver offered to take as to Deja Vu. We agreed and that was great decision. Deja Vu is family-run hotel and owners make everything they can to make your stay perfect. They are one of nicest people I ever met. I fill like home there.

Hotel Location.
Location is great. About 5-10 min walk to central street, fish market, restaurant. There are two dive-shops Scuba Iguana (one we use) and Red Mangroves less than 7 min walk. Few minutes further there is Playa de la Estacion (small beach) and further down is Chrles Darwin research center (Galapagos NP) where you can see giant turtles and other animals from the island
You can walk to the port in about 15 min. or take cab for $1 if you don't feel like walking.

Food
Breakfast is included and it is very nice breakfast: fresh juices, banana, fruits, eggs, toasts, coffee, tea, even fry fish if you ask. All served on the first floor dining area in very nice settings.
There is also beer and water you can buy right by reception.

Rooms.
Very specious, clean and all presently renovated. There is second building with additional rooms. At the time we were there, renovation of the second building was still in progress but it is probably finished by now. We always had hot and cold water in showers.

If you need cab or to organize land tour, just ask owners and they will do for you.

Overall experience - Great! I will be definitely staying in Deja Vu next time I will go to Galapagos and recommend to friends. What makes this place unique is how well you treated by owner's family. Senior Johnson Benitez and his wife really made as fill as we were part of their family. Thank You!

Room Tip: If you scuba diving, get room on the first floor, so you don't have to carry gear upstairs. For...
