Room was clean, shower great, bed comfortable. However I had great expectations that were not met. Food choices limited. Take it or leave it banquet. Right on the water was great and proximity to Chas Darwin Center could not be beat. Personal were terrific. It was really a three star place. Could be for the island it is was good.... More

The experience here was awesome! This was including in our Darwin Adventure Package tour. Viator messed up our reservation by not remitting payment for the tour to Red Mangrove. Red Mangrove still made sure we followed our original itinerary and scheduled our tours even though they were not paid on time. They wanted to make sure our stay was uneventful.... More

The staff are really friendly, helpful and courteous. The wifi is of very decent speed (although its available only in the restaurant area and the two rooms adjoining the restaurant), I did not expect that speed, so was v happy to post pics. The Hotel is basic and clean, breakfast is decent and the restaurant food reasonable. Your tour package... More

Great location, brilliant staff and really great food. Nothing was too hard and the room was perfect. The guides make sure you have a great time and enjoy the islands of paradise. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

It is without question, that the Red Mangrove Sea Lion residents are the star of the show! As soon as you arrive, you can see about 6-8 sea lions lounging on the deck chairs!! Some of them are even cuddling with each other! IT is amazing and the best sea lion scene on Santa Cruz. If you sit on the... More

I am at a loss for words for how amazing/beautiful Red Mangrove is! The customer service was great and the facilities were wonderful! I would say if you want your sleep do not get a room by the sea lions they love making noise around 5am-6am. Also, if you want to see sea lions up close and iguanas this is... More

We stayed here as part of a larger trip. The hotel was quaint and nice. However, Pablo our Naturalist was wonderful! He was hilarious. The other Pablo, who we lovingly refereed to as Pablo 2, was wonderful. We were part of a larger group with some folks who were a bit older. They couldn't do some of the activities, but... More

This hotel was booked by our travel agency. It is over priced. We asked for first class and upon arrival, we had an upstairs room called "azul" room which was spacious, had a balcony overlooking the harbor. But you have to wait for ten minutes for hot water and it was only a trickle. The sea lions and the iguanas... More
