Located on the Santa Cruz Island of the Galapagos archipelago, the Tortuga Bay Hotel is a well-equiped hotel with a swimming pool, jacuzzi and other leisure facilities,.. The staff is nice and helpfull and the food is good. However the hotel is situated at about a 20 minutes away (driving) from the Puerto Ayora, which is the biggest town on the isalnd and the starting place to travel on other islands of the archipelago.

We booked an all inclusive land-based tour through a travel agency in New York. Hotel Tortuga was the home base for this tour and we couldn't be happier. The manager, Carlos, made sure that we were well taken care off. We were given personal attention - most of our tours included just my family and the hotel staff personally accompanied us to any larger excursions in order to ensure we made our connections correctly. We enjoyed our time so much that we stayed an extra two days. Even though these extra days were not part of our all-inclusive package, Carlos helped us secure day trips and followed up with the providers to make sure things went smoothly. The distance from the town center was not a problem at all. We went on excursions right after breakfast and returned for lunch when we naturally needed a break and some "down-time". We were off again for another activity in the afternoon. The food was very good. Lots of fresh fruit and fruit juices every morning along with the standard breakfast foods.

I feel like we were scammed. We booked hotel in centre if city and under a different name and when we showed up it was about a 10min car drive to city and under a different name. When we asked they pretended that it must be our booking site but I looked on 3 different booking sites and all were the same. You have to take a taxi in every time. The actual hotel is nice. Big rooms. Quiet. Pool was nice. But for us it is all about location and was very disappointed.

We went for a family vacations to Galapagos and we choose this hotel we were really disappointed for the location of the hotel is really far from downtown you must use taxis for move. You need to think that you will not expend much time at the hotel so you do not need a fancy hotel instead look for something clean and in a good location (downtown) so you will be close to everything.
