We (two adults and two teen agers) stayed at Galapagos cottages fior 4 nights in March 2017. Place is well situated near town and beach. Very clean and comfortable accomodations. Kitchen, pool.. highly recommended. Not great wifi- but I understand that is an issue in general on the isalnd. We took day cruises to Bartolome, Seymor and Isabel.

I stayed here with my husband and our 2 sons for 6 nights last January. It was a great choice for several reasons: 1- The location is great, less than 10 minutes walking from downtown and the pier where all boats for tours or transfers to the other islands depart. Puerto Ayora has a very charming downtown with many restaurants...

Located on the edge of town near the access to the beach path to Tortuga bay the cottages look cool and unassuming from the exterior - on entry you're greater to a lovely courtyard with a brilliant pool and lots of seating and lounging areas. The cottages are really well designed and equipped - perfect for a family break -...

Everything about Villas Galapagos is wonderful! The location is perfect: in a calm area just a minute from the trail head to Tortuga Bay and two minutes walk from the main docks of Puerto Ayora, the supermarket and cafes and shops. The owners, Jimena and Charles, completely take care of you and arrange for your pick up at the airport....
