I stayed during the month of February with my friend for 3 nights. From the very beginning I found the service to be extremely good. All of the staff was helpful, I was in Room 12 which was very nice. Overall, I'd say the service and the location were a big plus for me. If you're looking for a quiet...

One of the cheaper options in the area. Staff were welcoming and friendly enough. The room we booked was basic but clean. I woke twice during the night to find an insect trying to crawl in my hair (two different ones), which were easily transferred outside. The island is full of animals. Simple cooked breakfast was included. Wifi was included....

We stayed here only one night because our other hotel, Galapagos dreams, overbooked. So we got a great deal ($20 pp) and a room on the top floor, king sized bed, ac. We didn't eat breakfast as we had an early boat. The only thing I would change is the white curtains, while lively and tropical, don't provide much protection...

We stayed here as part of a tour we booked. It was a good place to stay, convenient walking distance to town. It was clean and the staff were quite helpful. They organised breakfast for us early on the days we left before the normal breakfast hours. It was quite a challenge communicating with staff with my limited Spanish but...

We were given a triple room for a double once we checked in. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bed was big and we even got a little balcony. The location is a bit far from the city center but it is a nice walk. There is also plenty of taxis at 1 dollar each way.

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights in Santa Cruz and it had it booked as part of a package. The facilities are simple but rooms are clean, have decent a/c and nice breakfast. Location was also nice, a quiet street but not too far from the port and restaurants. The pool was awful and dirty, but on average...

While in Santa Cruz we stayed at the Casa Natura, which is changing its name to Galapagos Island Hotel. This is a very well kept hotel. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. The staff is friendly. They have a nice pool and pool-side bar. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Puerto Ayora.

This seemed to be a "Motel 6" quality hotel. The room was lit with bare bulbs, had indoor-outdoor carpeting and very cheap linens. Only one nightstand for a queen bed. It was clean but very very basic. We expected more. The desk staff did not seem very interested in helping the guests. One evening, I let them know (in Spanish)...

My wife and I were searching for a place to stay in this island with the following criterias in mind: walkable distance to the harbor, close to the main eats and near the Turtle Conservatory, had a free breakfast, and not too expensive daily lodging rates (compared to other top hotels in Sta.
