We had some problem with the other hotel we booked and had to switch to Albermarle at the very last minute. This change turned out to be one of the best surprises we encountered during our trip. The receptionist Natalia was an awesome person. She is very welcoming and helped us out with our trip plan and also showed us...

Excellent location almost on the beach - just separated by a small sandy road. Pretty hotel. Our room was spacious and on the ground floor overlooking the sea but even though we had a small balcony, we could not sit out because there were no chairs and the room was right next to the road so no privacy from vehicles...

This was an adorable boutique hotel. Rooms were spacious and each was a bit different, with different tile and different tile and backslash in the bathrooms. Most rooms had double sinks. There was a small pool and breakfast included. Rooms were clean and air conditioning worked well. There was also a sun terrace where we watched an amazing sun set!....

Hotel Albemarle is an interesting option for people with a bit more money to spend on accommodation. The hotel offers a good simple breakfast, a swimming pool and an excellent ocean view. The manager and staff are very friendly and can help you with all necessary arrangements. What we definitely missed was a small stylish place to eat dinner (possibly...

This is a luxury boutique hotel, directly on the beach of the island. Very central. Close to all restaurants in the town. Less than couple minutes from all eateries and stores.

This is a nice, friendly hotel just meters from the sea. Perfect for a short stay on Isabela Island. Rooms are clean, breakfast is enough to start a day full of tours, location is good to reach restaurants and shops in minutes. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
