I will agree that it seems that new management has taken over the hotel and I found all the front desk staff cheerful and helpful (and spoke good English). I would rate their helpfulness at 5 stars. My big issue was with my room. I had paid extra to upgrade to a beachfront room but got a room on the...

We were fortunate to have ocean front room. Being able to sleep with the balcony open and hear the ocean all night is an amazing experience. The room was great. Caroline who picked us up from the airport was informative and very helpful. You are in walking distance of all of the restaurants and the beach is in front of...

So....first is you must be upstairs in this place. If you are downstairs you are literally on the road (which is sand in front of the beach) or you are walking into the very crowded area that breakfast is served from your front door. The pool was empty when we arrived and obviously had been for some time and no...

Dear windsurfer5230 Many thanks for you for your review & comments, they are very helpful for impoving our services and facilities. Regarding your comments about the empty pool, unfortunately this was due to the heavy rains which caused inconveniences with the purity of the water in the pool and did not allow us to offer this service, as the pool...

Walking distance to the beach, about 100 feet. Great staff and management always very attendant. Internet works ok, hey but you are in the Galapagos. Good food in the morning and many great restaurants feet's from you. Many local cuisines at very low prices. The Hotel accepts credit cards but not all establishments will. Cash is a must on this...

We stayed just one night, with two kids and we paid for a triple with a double bed a really good price considering the size of the room and the amenities. We stated in puerto Ayora on a not that nice hotel paying twice as much. I booked by phone a couple of days before and the staff was really...

I have no idea why this hotel is listed so low on tripadvisor - our stay from beginning to end was fantastic. I have read that they have undergone a change of management recently and maybe the older reviews are referring to this period of time. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by a very helpful lady at reception...

I loved being a guest at The Albemarle Hotel! Jessica, the hotel manager was so helpful. From booking us taxis to tours and arranging any and every detail we needed, she did it. The hotel is also a superb location, right on the beach. Our room was spotless and the comforters were cozy. Air conditioning in the Galapagos heat is...

I island hopped in the Galapagos and did not go on a cruise. I stayed at Hotel Albermarle for 3 nights and I was very pleased. When I initially booked my hotel, Max offered to book our speed boat ticket from Santa Cruz, too. He booked them for us and emailed us a copy of the tickets and did not...

Had read the reviews, especially the poor ones. Our tour company set this one up for us so we were wary.

Far from being a perfect place to stay, I do think that it's a good option, considering the place and the price. I had a bad experience with the availability of our room, but even so, I think that I would return to this hotel. The room was very nice, big and clean, the little pool was old and dirty...
