The Hotel Albemarle is located across the street from the beach. There are numerous restaurants and bars nearby. The rooms are adequate and the breakfast is good. Isabela is a peaceful little town. The main pier is not nearby so you need a taxi to get to the pier for tours or for transport between islands. The staff is anxious to please and very helpful.
Great place to stay. The host Juliette made me feel very much at home. Was there to greet me when I left for the day and there at the end of the day to make sure all was well. Room was wonderful and just yards from sand beach. Lobby is cozy with atrium and small pool. Breakfast was good with many options. Overall an excellent experience.
We had a gorgeous hotel to enjoy this beautiful island in best location! We are SO happy to have stayed at hotel boutique Albemarle Juliette met us upon arrival and was so warm and welcoming. This hotel is GORGEOUS and very clean and is located right on the beach in one of the prettiest areas we saw during our trip. The whole staff is wonderful and helpful, There are plenty of comfortable lounging areas and the breakfast they put out is delicious . I would highly recommend this place!!!!! Also there is a roof terrace for enjoy the sunsets 🔅🔅
We highly recommend this hotel, we believe it has the perfect balance that has it all: Service: all the hosts we’re all great, looking after us, giving advice about the activities, and very warm conversation as well. Kudos to the breakfast buffet staff in the kitchen. Special thanks to Juliette for being so attentive to our questions prior and during our stay. We went for a self-service snorkel activity in concha perla, and they were kind enough to lend us swimming fins. Breakfast: has a good selection of options, with fruits, eggs, juice, toast, a very good balance of basics. It was served at a good time to meet excursion departure times. It is good enough to feel satisfied. Room: in perfect condition, with both a ceiling fan and air-conditioning, enough storage space, and a very ample bathroom. Water temperature was quite good, very hot water, and the pressure was good too. We had a nice touch of decoration waiting for us as part of our honeymoon, and we were given a great room also because of it. Location: can’t think of a better place to be located. Even though it’s in the street the noise is low and you are at a perfect walking distance from the beach and restaurants. It has a wonderful view to the ocean. Facilities: The hotel is very well-kept, even has a small swimming pool in a middle courtyard. You can tell details are being kept, with good maintenance and cleanliness. This was the last day of our honeymoon trip, and we want to thank you for making a memorable experience of a once in a lifetime event. We will be recommending you!!…
We loved our stay here! The staff was so helpful and we were taken care of so well! The location is excellent, food was very good and they accommodated my husbands allergies. The room overseeing the ocean was spacious and every clean. Surprisingly the internet here worked much better than it did in our hotel in Puerto Ayora, but note this is by Galapagos standards so do not expect fast speed internet here. Despite that, it was sufficient for all our needs including phone calls. We highly recommend this place! Felt like home!
The location is absolutely perfect, especially for children as there is a playground right outside on the clean sandy beach! The staff is absolutely great and easy going! All in all we had nothing to complain about and would come back anytime. Thanks to the staff for your warmth and kindness, Juliette, José and Alfredo.
Isabela is a truly unique island. It's as unique as the special animals and plants that you find throughout the Galapagos -- many times right under your feet! We treasured each day that we stayed in Isabela and at the Albemarle. Juliette and the other staff were always ready to help and to provide suggestions, Our room was clean and comfortable and we had a great view of the bay from our room and balcony! The breakfasts were excellent! We would definitely stay here again. An item to note that did detract from our stay is that the hotel is located next to the town's major sports arena which is very well lit and active in the evening making rooms on that side of the hotel potentially uncomfortable (unless you like watching the teams!)
Just had an amazing stay at the hotel .. it is right on the beach in the centre of the tiny town ..when we arrived Juliet was there to welcome us and sorted everything out for us including day trips and restaurants .. really have to recommend the local mkt for food it was cheap but very good .. far better than most of the restaurants .. breakfast at the hotel was great with the usual coffee fruit eggs toast and croissants .. I highly would recommend staying here . And once again thank you juliet for making our stay so good ..
Hotel Albemarle is a great hotel right on the beach in South Isabela island, walking distance to great restaurants/bars, and I can't recommend it enough. Tim the owner, a New Zealander, is a cool dude and the hotel staff is great and highly attentive. Juliette in particular helped me with every aspect of my trip, from booking dinners and activities as well as making me feel welcome as a solo traveler. I had a great time, and look forward to returning and exploring more of the Galapagos Islands :)
We stayed 3 nights at the Albemarie and it was excellent. The hotel location is ocean front. Our room was really nice with a king bed & separate large bathroom. Both were very clean and well maintained. But best part was the outstanding service provided by the entire staff, starting with Juliette, the hotel manager. She was always very cheerful and personable, whether first thing in morning or in the evening. Anything we or someone in our travel group of 13 needed or had questions about, Juliette and team were able to provide.
