We stayed at the Red Mangrove Aventura Lodge on Santa Cruz for 3 nights: at the beginning of our 8-day tour including Floreana and Isabela and 2 nights at their best Suite Mayor at the end of the tour. Our stay and the trip in general has exceeded our expectations. It was an expensive tour. However we would have got very upset, if the conditions had been close to those ones at luxurious resorts. All in all, we paid a premium for something we had not seen or experienced before and for their nature and location. Our glass was not only "half full", but even flooding over :) The hotels are run very well: a good example of efficiency, which we did not see very often in the continental Ecuador. The personnel was extremely helpful and friendly. We were very lucky with the guide. Ours was very knowledgeable, considerate and tactful. We like the food understanding that it tastes "very local" and cannot be to everybody's liking. In general, this agency made us very happy. We will remember Ecuador warmly because of our experience with Red Mangrove. We will highly recommend this agency to our friends in Ukraine and the Netherlands who will consider going to the Galapagos and continental Ecuador.
