This was a nice hotel. Bedroom large woth double bed and single. Good size bathroom with good shower. Wifi fine. Breakfast good with plenty of choice. Staff friendly and helpful. I was in rooms across the road from part that had the pool but was told i could use it as well. Nice seating area outside. Filtered water in rooms and available in front of reception. Excellent location for visiting the sights, restsurants and shops. Excellent base for touring the island.

We stayed here two nights with kids. It's a lovely hotel close to restaurants and where most activities start. Rooms are relatively large (we had a double and two twins in our room). Bathroom is small, but all facilities. Like everywhere in Galapagos you can't drink the water or put toilet paper in the toilet. The provide plenty of filtered water and refill your pitcher every day. There's a trash can for toilet paper. Beds are comfy. Wifi like everywhere in Galapagos was slow and mainly useful for text. Staff were wonderful. Great breakfast provided every day including short order cook and not just continental. There's a wonderful pool across the street that's part of the hotel as well. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back.

The hotel is located nearer to the Darwin Research Center than the city center (portcan be reach in 10-15min walking distance) and has a medium-sized swimming pool. WiFi was available by the pool and reception, and partially also in the rooms (not very fast but sufficient to quickly check news for example). The staff was friendly but not all conversational in English. The room was spacious, clean, the bed big and the AC working well (no TV). Conveniently, there were electronic outlets on the left and right side of the bed. Two things I didn't appreciate in the room: although clean, the toilet was disgusting as the toilet seat was made of foamed plastic which might have been fluffy to seat on but certainly not the most hygenic option for a toilet. The second thing was that although the building seemed to be of above-average qualitiy in terms of how it was constructed, my room had a small whole in the ceiling's corner which resulted in small geckos hanging on the ceiling. The breakfast at the hotel was very basic but good.

A pleasant hotel in a location convenient to walk the main areas of Puerto Ayoro and restaurants. The rooms were a bit "dated", but otherwise clean and comfortable. Since we did so many activities, we really only used the room for showering and sleeping. The breakfast was standard fare for the Galapagos, but still delicious. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. There was a pool across the street, but we did not use it as we had activities scheduled every day.

Room Tip: We had a first floor in the corner and it was too dark. I would have preferred a second floor...
