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...

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. The sea Lions live on the terrace with the Inguanas.. Amazing experience.. The staff at the hotel are very service minded. When we arrived, we got...

We visited Red Mangrove with a party of about 22. They handled all the details. Our room was the Suite Mayor, the best in the resort, our friends some with not even a window and no real privacy. Good housekeeping for a dive resort. Events scheduled were fun. The food was average. The ppl. At the resort are mostly Spanish...

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. The...

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. You see sealions and sea leguanas on the terasse. In the water we saw sea turtles mating. Pelikans was crossing in the...

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....

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....

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...

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...
