I stayed in a 3rd floor suite and could not have been happier. The accommodations were spotless, the owners were exceptionally helpful and accommodating, and the view from the balcony was outstanding. Everything you could need was provided. There was a Mini fridge in the room, soap and shampoo in the shower, and a safe for items you wanted to keep locked up. If that wasn’t enough, there was a common area outside the room with a full kitchen, including a coffee maker for those early morning excursions. The hotel offered a morning breakfast that was fantastic. The location can’t be beat- so close to the pier, restaurants, and shops. Posada Del Mar would be at the top of my list for a return stay.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Santa Cruz. The family-run accommodation makes you feel very welcome. Juan Carlos was extremely helpful and helped coordinate activities for us. 15 minutes to Darwin, 2 minutes from the ferry, close to restaurants and still able to walk to Tortuga Bay. We are very happy we got to stay here and get to know the owners.

Great location on a quiet street just a short walk to everything. Rooms are spotless and they must have fixed the hot water issue because it worked fine for us. The owners are very kind and go the extra mile to help you. Breakfast next door is excellent and the views from the back rooms from the balconies are beautiful.

Excellent choice as a base to see Santa Cruz and indeed Isabella Island nearby. Whilst a basic hotel the charming lady owner Cecilia and her hospitality trained son Juan Carlos go out of their way to assist travelers with practical advice based on their extensive local knowledge. The included breakfast and the Deli next door very good.
