The Hotel Albemarle is in an excellent location in Puerto Villamil, as it's right on the beach with beautiful sunset views. The restaurants and shops are a short walk away, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a nice breakfast, and the rooms were spacious

A very comfortable room, with large beds and a decent sized bathroom with shower that worked well once the hot water had made its way thru the pipes - clearly labelled taps. Our room looked right out to sea and the only thing keeping us awake was the sound of the sea. A tasty

Hello The best airport to arrive to is the Baltra one, located 40 minutes away from the city of Puerto Ayora, from where you can take a speed boat to Puerto Villamil on Isabela Islands. It will take you around two hour to get by speed boat, and schedules are 7:00 in the morning and 2:00 on the afternoon, however is always advisable to book in advance and to arrive half and hour before the departure so you can take the back seats, where the trip is more comfortable. Your other option is to fly to Puerto Villamil, which is a 20 minute flight, is more comfortable. Best regards. Hotel Albemarle

Hiya, my experience was that the wifi did not work well in my room (although others had intermittent wifi in rooms). It worked fine in reception and there was also a computer which was much faster, although I only used it for emails, messenger chat and facebook for which it was fine. if you need wifi in your room I don't think this hotel will be Fast and efficient enough I am not sure if there is internet cafes nearby as I said not look for one but if avaialbe these might be better
