A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights. The hotel could not be faulted. Our twin room and bathroom were very clean. The hotel is situated on an idyllic beach and the views are lovely. The food, produced locally on Marita's farm was superbly cooked, good quantity and beautifully presented. Thoroughly recommended.

Lovely outlook and Marietta and her staff are so kind and attentive. Quiet and a little out of town but taxis take you in very cheaply. Wonderful locally grown food (from the sea and Marieta's own farm) food cooked to order by a great chef.

Perfect setting, decent food and helpful staff (who found my retainer after mistakenly putting it in the laundry.....my fault !). Location about as easy as one can find (first hotel on your left). Bamboo room, while probably not the best one, was large with a big wedge of a view of the ocean and was about 25 steps from the...

Pros: 1) Common areas very nice. 2) Breakfast amazing. 3) Location good. 4) The room pretty large. 5) Shower good. 6) Wifi only in public areas, i.e. across the street, but fast 7) Walking distance to pier and to town. Cons: 1) The annex is across the street from the main hotel in a little fenced in area. While nice,...

This hotel is located right on the beach, which it is their bigger plus. The beach has natural swimming pools formed by the lava, lots of marine iguanas and birds. We booked a room with ocean view (which are more expensive than the ones facing the back) and it was totally worth it. The main room is in the upper...

The service at this hotel and restaurant is top notch. We received a personal tour of the Hotel's private farm among other things that put this spot high on our list of favorites in the Galapagos. It's great for having a nice lunch for a good price and all the food is farm to table. Combine that with the ocean...
