The rooms are clean and spacious. AC worked great. The rooftop chill area was cool. The pool area was perfect for relaxation. We were the only two at Albermarle for our stay. We had breakfast included every morning. Made to order eggs or whatever upon request. Juliette would meet us there every morning with her map and we would discuss our plans for the day. She was a wealth of local knowledge and regularly went out of her way to make sure we had anything and everything for a perfect stay. Fortunately for us, Juliette speaks very good English as our Spanish is not good. I would recommend anyone to stay here when in Puerto Villamil.

We had a very nice time at Albermarle, our room was on the second floor right across from the beach. The host Juliana was the best, provided suggestions during our stay for places to visit and answer any question we had. The room was very clean, we had a bottle of wine as a gift for our anniversary. I took so many pictures of the Hotel because I think their web site doesn't really show how beautiful the hotel is.

The hotel was very cozy with a beautiful interior patio and pool surrounded by bougainvillea. Our rooms were large with fantastic views of the water, and it was close walking distance to everything. Even better was the wonderful staff and hostess Juliet, who went above and beyond to see that we were comfortable. I would return to this hotel in an instant!

We loved staying at Hotel Albermarle! Such a cool and refreshing retreat from the heat of busy days exploring these beautiful islands. Our balcony overlooked the ocean, inviting sea breezes and a perfect vantage point for the array of animal activity below. A crystal clear pool, fringed with flowers just a few steps from the sandy beach. Delicious breakfasts with everything you could wish for. A rooftop patio with 360 degree views of beaches, volcanoes, misty highlands and stunning sunsets. So much beauty and wildlife could be experienced without even stepping out the door. The true gems are within however. The friendly and professional staff, Ana, Juliet and their team went above and beyond, making our stay incredibly special. Cannot thank them enough for their seamless assistance in all things trip related. We stayed an extra night and didn't want to leave! -Shelly from Australia

I have two minds about this hotel. We were too late to book a room with our first choice hotel so our travel agent recommended this one. At first we were very disappointed, then we became acclimated. LOL. So, the first shock is there was no wifi anywhere in the hotel - only available at the tiny reception area. Takes some getting used to in our age of connectivity. The rooms are large but not very comfortable. The bathrooms are also large and rather basic. The pool was the size of a postage stamp and the water was extremely murky, foggy, couldn’t see through it, completely not inviting. However, who cares, the hotel is right on the beach - just go for a swim in the beautiful waters of the ocean. So all these inconveniences become very secondary as we became one with the beautiful island. It’s a very rustic place with basic tourist restaurants and shops. But that’s not the reason for your visit. The extradinary nature is why your are there and it really is.
