This place has an artistic outdoor decor, we loved the hammocks, clean colorful rooms, and nice bathrooms with hot water. The wifi was stronger in the courtyard but it was so comfortable and cute we didn't mind including a hot tub with waterfall feature. They had free bikes we could use around the island and is was easy 10 min...

This is a wonderful place to stay. Everything is top - room, bathroom, bed, breakfast!!!, other services,.. owner is excellent, also a park ranger and will explain you everything you are interested about these incredible islands (really explain, not just to sell expensive trips...). Only issue can be a place, especially for older or lazy visitors - 5 to 10...

After a week in the highlands of San Cristobal as volunteers at a bio-reserve, my daghter and I checked into the Eco-Friendly hotel in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. What a delight! We were met at the entrance by Lucretia and shown to our rooms. Really nice - not five star - didn't expect it to be. A bit later, a knoc...

My wife and I traveled to San Cristobal fro 2 days during Thanksgiving 2016 (part of a longer Galapagos itinerary). Eco Friendly was amazing - for a few different reasons. 1) Lucrezia and the rest of her staff are incredibly helpful - we turned up with no taxis booked, or itineraries, or even ferry tickets back to Santa Cruz. Within...

We booked the Galápagos Eco Friendly based on all of the trip advisor reviews. Our experience did not match the experiences noted by other travelers. The building is very clean, well appointed and overall an enjoyable place to stay. We were met at the dock by Lecrecia and driven by taxi to the hotel. We were quickly escorted to our...

Every review that we get is important to us and, generally, those that criticize are helpful and we rely on them to improve our services for our future guests. Sadly, that is anything but the case with your review. The first rule of valid criticism is providing a correct, complete and truthful explanation - you did none of these things....

We stayed 6 nights here in a very clean, comfortable and well equipped room. Good wi-fi, AC, great bed. The staff was very helpful in connecting us to two of the best tours we had during our islands' stay: Espanola and Kicker Rock/Cerro Brujo. It is not easy to get a day trip to Espanola but the owner did in...

You couldn't have come to Galapagos at a better time of year. The Waved Albatross, as you know, can be seen only one place in the entire world and that is Espanola where they mate and raise their chicks. And this year, the babies are prolific. We would have moved mountains (or volcanoes!), let alone make a phone call on...

It was comfortable, clean, quiet and Harry and his wife went above and beyond to ensure our stay was excellent. (Harry was away for most of our stay, but his wife took very good care of us). Breakfasts, as everyone mentions, are...
