The Galapagos Pearl is a charming bed and breakfast retreat in a quiet, residential neighborhood in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island. It is located one and a half blocks away from Charles Darwin Avenue, the main tourist street of downtown. It is a convenient walking distance from the heart of town and a block and a half away from the sea. It offers a peaceful ambiance and is surrounded by lush, native Galapaganian gardens. The hotel itself is Eco-friendly using recycled rubber for roofing, biodegradable soap and shampoo, and biodegradable cleaning products. We also take pride in keeping a green existence by recycling and composting.

If I could give the Galapagos Pearl higher than 5 stars I would! We stayed here in January 2021, and can't recommend it highly enough!!!! Yolanda and Shirley were INCREDIBLE and so warm and welcoming and helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. The B&B itself is clean and beautiful with a pool and lots of hot water and strong enough wifi. Yolanda makes you a DELICIOUS and gigantic breakfast every morning. We really felt like we were staying with the family... and not just in another hotel.

Lovely small hotel. Well located. Quiet but a short step away from everything. The owners could not have been more accommodating and nice. I will be staying there again next year when i return. Solid breakfast. Very relaxing.

This cute little place is the perfect mix of great location yet quiet. You can walk short 1-2 blocks to one end of the Malecon (aka waterfront). Right there are restaurants and coffee shops and the fish market. A Short walk away are banks, travel agencies and a million souvenirs shops. all the other hotels on the Malecon seem to be too close to the action to have truly quiet rooms. But this Galapagos Pearl B&B is just far enough off the Malecon and it’s in an interior courtyard to it’s surrounded by family homes. So, super quiet. Great breakfast prepared exactly as requested too. I feel lucky I found this place!

This is a good bed and breakfast! Good location, only a 5 minute walk to the start of the road where all the restaurants and bars are located. We had the room on the top with a view and it was really good with a nice view although a little noisy as you can hear the people who live in the buildings surrounding the property. The bed was big and the mattress was excellent! The breakfast was good, eggs how you want them with a coffee, juice and yogurt. Our only complaints were just small things but simple things that shouldn’t happen, we used the toilet paper and there was no spare toilet paper in the room? Someone took the small towels and didn’t replace them? The Girl who checked us in was great and very helpful! She advised that we could top up our water bottles when required but one morning at breakfast the water container was empty and when we advised the lady who cooked the breakfast she didn’t seem to happy that we wanted to fill our water bottles up and advised it was for a glass of water if you were thirsty, very strange?

We stayed at this beautiful garden paradise for 4 nights on our trip to Santa Cruz. We didn't have anything planned when we got there, but Shirley helped us on the first night and got all our excursions organized and reserved! She was even able to help us find some things to do on San Cristobal once we continued our vacation there. The room was very comfortable and welcoming, with a nice view and a great breakfast!
