We stayed here for 2 nights after completing a one-week Galapagos cruise. It was a quiet and relaxing interlude after a very busy week on the boat.
The place has a charming design with several very nice public spaces for hanging out. The bed was very comfortable (firm!) and hot water was excellent. No TV or phone but that's not what we were looking for. There was a public Internet computer in the patio area, though.
The location was very good, only a block from the main street but very quiet. The price was much lower than the bigger resort-style hotels.
