The Wooden House lodge (locals call it "Pailón") is a beautiful, lovely kept lodge on the "main road" just 5 walking minutes from the pier and 10 walking minutes from the heart of "the village". Our first impression was great: colourful wood fence, clean entry, and a lovely common open space (chilling, breakfast, bar, restaurant, small pool, reception, snorkeling equipment)...

Actually, we give five stars in very special cases only. This is such a case: the rooms in the upper floor are nice, it's clean and comfortable - though it's not a five stars hotel, of course. But Fernando and his staff is extraordinary - you really feel like a guest.

It was a very nice stay, especially as we were upgraded. Some standard rooms are not so well placed / equipped. The staff has been very kind and helpful. It would be on the beach, it would be perfect.

We stayed here for 3 nights on a recent trip to Galapagos. The kids loved the (small) pool, and the adults appreciated the bar! It was a great location, just a 3-minute walk to the pier and beach, and an easy 10-minute walk to town. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, and breakfast was delicious. It was nice just...

Recently refurbished, The Wooden House was very comfortable and well appointed. The staff were extremely helpful, the meals of a good standard and the hotel had a welcoming ambience with a bar and sitting area beside the long dining table. The Laundry facilities were made good use of by our group after a long, hot trek up the volcano.

Lovely place - great meals far above standard found elsewhere. Clean and helpful and friendly staff who were happy to provide anything needed. Good facilities for washing dirty trekking boots and very dirty laundry dealt with very fast and very well.

Very friendly staff beginning with the owner Carlos! The accommodation is quite correct. Clean and comfortable despite of the white lights. Good desayuno with fresh fruits. Good choice of food! Great atmosphere! Very close to embarcadero and 500m from the town!
