The staff were incredibly welcoming - San Cristobel is a very relaxing island, and we felt well looked after during our stay. I loved the dining area, overlooking the sea. You can walk from the hotel along the seafront of shops and sea lions, I could have stayed longer. The rooms were comfortable, the laundry service was prompt and the...

It was not that many but still for the Price you are paying it is way too bad that this happens, the beds are not confortable... The town is ok but the people is rude,...

The hotel was clean and comfortable. It is situated at the quieter end of the main street with lovely views of the port. The main disappointment was that even though we had paid for a room with an ocean view there were none available.

This hotel is in a good location, right on the main strip (if you can call it that not much there). The hotel has 2 nice pools and a restaurant. The alcohol is self serve honor system - you write down what you took. The beer was priced well at $3.50 but the wine was $10 a glass, which was...

This is a simple but clean hotel on the malecon close to the dock. all the restaurants and tour places are close by within walking distance. has a nice view looking out to wreck bay. A good choice if you are land based in San Cristobal. wifi only available in main area and not in rooms.

Taking this into consideration, we firstlDy where surprised by such an island style of accomondation. Very fast we came to know that this is South America and as such also an exceptional good standard. Growing into the lifestyle of Galapagos, we soon...

We were on the ground level next to the restaurant and could see over the water. It was a nice / pleasant hotel ... everything was fine, but I wouldn't rave about it. The location at the end of the Malecon was very convenient as we walked up and down early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Wifi...
