Although on the outskirts of town this accomodation was a great place to stay, as we walked through town we got to see how the locals live a lot more than in the tourist areas. The staff were excellent - very knowledgeable and booking many transfers and tours for the rest of our trip. As long as you don’t mind a 10 minute walk to the main strip ($1.50 taxi ride) I would stay here. They also have free bicycles for you if you can get them !
Our flight was delayed so we made it to the island a day later than planned. They didn't charge us for the missed night which was really nice. The owners are lovely, helpful and always there in case you have questions. You can get basic bikes for free which is nice since the apartments are 1,5 km from the restaurant area. We had apartment 0 since they had no others and unfortunately it was really moist and smelled heavily of mould. We've had moist rooms before since we're travelling on a budget and normally that's something you can arrange with for a few nights, but this was unbearable. We couldn't switch rooms since everything else was occupied. We didn't see the other rooms so judging from the reviews here they don't have that problem. So if you're gonna stay there avoid room 0 :)…
We stayed for a week with Casa Patty, Its a nice family run apartment in Santa Cruz. We received clear instructions to reach the apartment from the airport and good information about things to do. The apartment had hot water and the wifi wasnt too bad considering your on the galapagos. It is probably 15-20 mins to the port which we were happy to walk, but you can also get a nearby taxi for $1.50 if needed. Also you can also use the bikes for free and hire snorkel equipment which are both good. Kitchen was well equipped too for basic meals and good cleaning service everyday,
Patty's House was great value for money. Short walk from the main Street in town. Staff friendly and can book tours for you if needed. Free bike rental. Free drinking water in room. Really enjoyed our stay!
We stayed here for 3 nights and were able to discover all of Puerto Ayora (and a little beyond) very easily bc oc the free bikes that they offer. Ideal! Also, the owner explained everything there is to do on the island when we arrived and even showed us the way to his favorite panaderia, empenaderia and the (organic) market. Very friendly & helpful! The room itself was okay, nothing special, but definately fine. We liked the fact that we had our own kitchen to cook meals in :) All in all: definately recommended!
