The Red Mangrove Lodge is just what I expected after reading reviews and viewing photos. The sea lions and iguanas are always around and we enjoyed watching them. Lodging: The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Our room had an ocean view and was beside the sea lions deck. It was clean and quiet and our bed was comfortable It... More

This is a great place to stay. Great location. nice rooms. great view. sea lions and iguanas are plentiful. really a nice place. I would give it 5 stars as simply a hotel in the Galapagos. However, we did an all inclusive package with them. The package was all mixed up when we got there. the staff at the hotel... More

Its a nice beach hotel with some few perks. The best part of the hotel was the deck and the close access to sea lions. The hotel has a resting spot for them and you can see the whole time. Staff was friendly although not as friendly to the sea lions, rooms were ok, AC, TV, large bathrooms. What i... More

We booked the 6 day/5night tour which started 1 night in Santa Cruz, 3 nights in Isabela, and the final night back in Santa Cruz. For us, it was a great value because our excursions were incredible, trips to locations like los tuneles y tintoreras are not to be missed. So many nooks and crannies in the lava where life... More

Overall we loved Red Mangrove Aventura! I went with a couple girlfriends, and we enjoyed the stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. At the beginning of our stay, my room overlooked the sea lions on the patio and the water, which was a beautiful view despite the tropical, rainy weather for part of the view. The service was mostly... More

The all-inclusive nature of this makes it a little hard to work out value for money, and my one-night stay didn't quite fit their model of operation. They did give me a deep discount but it still felt quite expensive as I didn't partake in any of the included activities. However, I just had to stay here for the sea... More

We stayed at this hotel from August 2 to august 6, 2016. This hotel, has the best location at the Galapagos. You can enjoy your meals on the terrace, which is "in" the water.

If you are interested in adventure, especially SCUBA diving, this is a great place to visit. All the rooms are unique and different. The property is well maintained and the staff is attentive and helpful. It was also helpful that they had staff meet us at the Quito and Galápagos airports, who guided us every step of the way.

One off the most spetacukar stays I have ever had on a hotel. And I have stayed a lot off places. The most amazing thing is the hotels design and location, that allows it to fusion with nature.
