Three nights on a G Adventure tour and very pleased. Be careful of step up into bathroom and need to keep bathroom door closed when running AC. Walking distance to downtown. Yes, the pool is lovely for soaking, not swimming laps. Be aware there is NO elevator. Rooms are spacious and have cable TV with lots of channels (in Spanish -- only one in English), frig and AC. Some of group complained about outside neighbor noise up until 10 PM but our two rooms were quite serene. Always disappointed when posters compare experiences to the country where they live instead of the country they are visiting. Good choice for Galapagos.

I stayed here while on a tour to the Galapagos. I did not choose this hotel, and I paid extra to have a single room. I did not know what to expect from accommodations on the islands, and I was not thrilled by the lodging. The hotel advertises a pool, but it is more like a baby pool. There are no phones in the rooms (at least there was not one in my single room), which was concerning in the event of an emergency. The staff were not very helpful, although I realize this may have been due in part to the language barrier. I had naively assumed that more people would speak English, and in actuality, very, very few people are able to communicate in English. Before I return to the Galapagos, I intend to strengthen my Spanish skills.

We booked a triple room and ended up in a lovely, spacious, comfortable room on the third floor with an excellent balcony patio just outside our door where we could relax at the end of the day. The staff was friendly and helpful. Laundry service was quick and inexpensive. We’d definitely stay here again.

We checked in and got our keys. There is no such thing as elevator in these types of hotel. But the staff is always quick to assist with the luggage. The rooms are not of the same size. For example, there are rooms on the second floor (really third floor but they have 200 room numbers) where they have open area with tables and chairs and lots of plants. It is a nice place to rest and catch the rays. Then there are other rooms that are just that, room across the hall. There is a swimming pool in front to hang out along with tables and nice large beach umbrellas.
