IsaMar Hotel is exactly what its name suggests, “Paradise on Galapagos” Isabela is the largest island. This one-million-year old island has it all, from volcanos to a wide range of flora and fauna. The only choices you must make during your stay at paradise is where to explore the islands wonders by land or sea, or to have a relaxing afternoon on a beautiful deck with ocean view.

It‘s a small and calm hotel directly to the beach. The rooms are clean with aircondition. The stuff is very friendly. There is also a restaurant, the food is very good and always fresh prepared. Free coffee and water is provided all over the day.

We really enjoyed our stay at Isamar Hotel. We stayed at the beginning of December as part of a Galapagos trip and felt very safe. All the safety precautions were in place. Unbelievable location and view right on the beach with incredible sunsets, walking distance to the small town and the dock. Rooms were clean and very well kept. Breakfast was included, fresh fruit and made to order eggs in the morning...delicious! Great staff, very friendly and accommodating. Maria goes above and beyond! Thank you so much for a great stay!

We stayed here on July 2021. There were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children - 13,11, and 9). We loved that the hotel was right on the beach and that we could get to the beach easily. The rooms were nice and clean. We loved the buffet breakfast and the service that we got each morning from the wait staff. Breakfast had a lot of options.

The room was a little small for our family (although I will say that the room isn't mean to fit 5 people), we asked the manager if we could do this because we didn't want to split the family up. The manager kindly agreed to let us do this, but when comparing to other hotels we stayed at the room was still a little small.

In general, the staff was very nice, but they did try to charge us a really expensive rate for a late checkout. Please be aware that their check-out time is 9 am, which in my opinion is way too early. After I complained about this, they did give us an extra hour to check out, but compared to the other hotels I stayed in the Galapagos Islands, no one else charged us a late check-out fee.

Overall though, we would consider staying here again.

We stayed 5 nights in Isamar and actually in 3 different rooms. It was because we prolonged our stay couple of times and got different rooms. The last nights we spend in the sea view rooms . The location next to beach is wonderful, it is easy to enjoy the sunsets and walk to the center following the beach. Our son loved to play in the waves and there were also nice calm spots within lava stones to take it easy in the water in the end of the beach near Isamar. The location is good even because it is kind of half way from the harbor and the center. We walked to Concha de Perla and even when we took the morning boat back to Santa Cruz.

The service was very good and Juan took a very good care of us. Hope to be back again - will definitely stay again in Isamar.

This hotel is a short walk along the beach from downtown Puerto Villamil. It has a main building and a separate set of rooms on the beach front. The rooms are clean and well appointed with comfortable beds, AC, etc. Therre is a nice seating area with couches, tables, outdoor shower etc.

As noted elsewhere, there is wifi but it is spotty and slow,

Breakfast is served in the main building (if you are leaving early request it),

We enjoyed the beach location and proximity to town and the port.

Splurge and get a beach-front room if you can. You won't regret it. We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Isabela. The accomodations are clean and comfortable, and the staff is amazing. Daniel spent a couple of hours with me (including taking me to a travel agency in town) making arrangements for our return trip to Santa Cruz, after the smaller boat we arrived on resulted in queasy stomachs for most of our family. He got us reserved seats up top with the captain on a larger boat for the same price as the seasickness -inducing boat. When stopping by our room to confirm our early-morning ride to the dock, Maria noticed us trying to remove a thorn from my son's foot, offered to help, and, after 10 minutes, successfully removed the thorn. And Jimmy picked us up at 5:10 a.m. and drove us to the dock for our early morning departure. If we ever make it back to Isabela, we would definitely stay at Isamar Hotel again.

I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Isamar. This hotel is situated on the beach and only a 5 minute walk into the town. The a/c was cold and shower had super hot water. The staff was exceptional and friendly. They made you feel like family. The daily breakfast was nice and simple. Eggs, cereals, bread, and fruit.

The hotel was lovely & it was nice to have a spot to sit right on the beach. It is close to everything. We received a lot of good recommendations from the hotel staff. Everyone who works at the hotel was happy to help any time we needed & often times went well above anything necessary to help!

We stayed there for 9 nights and by the end felt like the staff was family. They did such an amazing job making us feel welcomed and assisting in scheduling all of our excursions and activities. The rooms were large and spacious with great air conditioning. The breakfast buffet is Phenomenal!! If you decide to stay here you must have dinner at the restaurant. It is reservation only and they will prepare whatever protein of your choice upon request, it was the best food we had on the island and one of the best tuna steaks I've ever had. Would 100% recommend staying here if you are on Isabella Island.

Spent 4 nights at Hotel Isamar on Isabela island. From reservation to checkout it was seamless. We’re from the US and worked with María via WhatsApp to get information about room types and bed configurations. Information on the ferry from Baltra to Porto Ayoro was confusing so María arranged our tickets and the transfer was smooth. We were greeted upon our arrival and registered then escorted to our room facing the beach. You’re on a remote island so don’t expect extreme luxury - think toilet tissue in the garbage... there’s hot water, television and a turn down service. Beds are firm, rooms are clean and breakfast is made to order. The location is great; the town is very small so everything is within walking distance.
