Greta place had a lovely time, had a pool and a GREAT staff. Breakfast included was Great. Everyone was helpful and there to answer our questions. Wifi in rooms is spotty but there are plenty of shared areas
My husband and I and our four teenage boys stayed here for 3 nights after our cruise. It was ideal for us. We had two rooms which gave us lots of space. The air con worked great and it was an easy walk into town or the Charles Darwin Research Station. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and the included breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend.
Got this place through my tour company based in Quito. First, this may be the worst location in Puerto Ayora-it is a 15-20 min walk down to the harbor though only 5-10 to Darwin Station. It overlooks a neighborhood park with a basketball court. Far from idyllic. The room is fine but the bad takeaway is that my room, which is literally about 1-2 meters from the AP (wifi access point) just outside in the hallway yet the connectivity was only weak on my Chromebook based on the standard scale of weak, medium and strong. I only get 20 mbps here in the US with Centurylink and pages come up right away and I can download a 100 mb album in less than a minute. Naturally, their excuse was that wifi was "bad" in the Galapagos but considering that almost EVERYONE on the 3 main islands live with a few square miles of the town, this makes no sense. In fact, wifi should be super strong. And they might be better served for the included breakfast service by setting up a buffet instead of the table service. First, they make eggs but you must “request” meat-which means that beyond horrible “jamon” that is de riquer in South America and resembles nothing like the amazing “jamon” your get in Spain-how did this go awry over the centuries??? Thus, if you are looking for additional walking exercise, stay here. Otherwise, look for a closer place to the harbor for transport, excursion and food, etc.…
The service was excellent at the hotel. The rooms and facilities are basic, but one of the advantages is that it has a pool onsite for those hot afternoons. A short walk to the downtown area, about 10 minutes.
The hotel is clean and the room is comfortable and large. The staff was particularly helpful and respectful. I could not give this hotels 5 stars because the Wi-Fi is very slow but then again all internet is inadequate in the Galapagos. It is located on the far end of the Town not at all Central. There was construction with heavy machinery going on right next door and it could be heard all day long. If you need silence you need to confirm that the heavy machinery work has been completed before booking. Nevertheless I gave the hotel 4 out of 5 stars because it was comfortable clean and friendly and not too expensive.
