We stayed here for 5 days whilst visiting the Galapagos Islands and it was an easy 5-10 min walk into the main town. The staff were friendly and showed us around our room and gave us a lot of information when we arrived but going on so many trips and making the most of our time we didn't see them very often as they left at 5/6pm in the evenings. They did leave an emergency number if needed.
Breakfast was included and was pretty basic (scrambled egg, fruit and bread rolls) which we had a couple of times and if you needed breakfast for a trip they were happy to provide you with something.
I was able to borrow a hair dryer for my visit, there was snorkel gear to borrow if you needed it for a trip and a laundry service ($5 a load). The pool in the back is very small which we did not use and I don't think was used by any guests during our visit.
Overall the hotel was pretty basic but it had everything we needed. The rooms were cleaned daily. My only comment would be that apart from the 1st night the shower was either freezing cold or boiling hot!
NOTE - the hotel only accepts payment in cash. I didn't find this clearly written anywhere (booked through booking.com) and there was a handwritten note on reception explaining this. As we were not aware of this we did need to draw out cash from an ATM. There was a fairly large bank in the town and it was easy enough to get the cash we needed but I would have liked to of known before arriving!
