Horrible hotel for anyone - GalapagosPosted Dec 31, 2012
The staff was very unfriendly, rude. The rooms were lacking a lot of attention. There was no safe in the room, this made me uncomfortable considering there was no locked door to the public in the main area of the hotel, and anyone on the street could easily gain access to the hotel. Locks on room doors were flmsy at best, and there was no privacy. Plus pool access was denied up until the last day to which I found it filthy, disgusting and had no desire to use it.

I'd stay again.Posted Dec 13, 2012
Nice place just a few blocks from the beach and town center of activities. Taxi cabs are $1 to anywhere in town.The pool is nice and clean. the breaskfasts simple but okay. The staff actually cooked breakfast for us 30 minutes early when we had a tour to catch.Very nice. Only complaint is when we realized our sliding patio door wouldn't lock the staff failed to fix it. Not good. Overall a pleasant stay for the money. Good hot showers and very thin walls also should be pointed out.

Quiet, but it'll doPosted Aug 24, 2012
Pros: The front desk lady was very nice.
Cons: The towels and the shower incident of course
Location: The location was about a 10 minute walk from the downtown area. minus the rooster in the morning it is a quiet place.
The people there are very nice and friendly. My first day the was an experience. I was greeted with with no water. My friend that joined me was stuck in the shower with no water...Day 1. They were quick to fix it...two hours later. No water problem rest of the trip. The shower tells seems old, but clean. The shower towels really thin and old...no fluffy feeling. lol Oh, neighbor has a rooster...go off clock work at 5 am every morning. The place was clean and the all the people at the hotel were very kind and helpful.

Disappointed.Posted Feb 20, 2012
Pros: Some of the people that I met from other countries made the trip worth while..
Cons: Stated above.
Location: Not good.
The appearance of the hotel is okay but it has major drawbacks. First, and most important, it's buried in a run-down neighborhood approx 6 blocks from the water. Also, I found it extremely difficult to get the "straight word" on anything. My queries about "tours" etc. always resulted in the same hustler appearing on the scene. I cannot stand that type of pressure from someone who apparently has inside connections. Individual staff members seemed okay and the breakfast was also okay. In my judgment an "accident about to happen" exists in the outside staircase used for access to the rooms on the 2nd, and 3rd floors. It rains almost daily and the wet stairs are extremely slippery and could result in a fall causing serious injuries. I would not book at this hotel again nor recommend it to anyone else...Overall, I left the Galapagos Islands with negative feelings...I believe that staying in a hotel on the water would have made a difference.

This hotel was adequate, but not outstanding in any area.

I was not disapointed.Posted Oct 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel was fine for what it was. It was not super luxurious, it was not on a main street, it was a basic place to sleep. Keep in mind, the galapagos isn't hawaii, there are no mega hotels, no Hiltons, although there are nicer places then this. It was maybe 4 blocks from the main road, which wasn't too bad, considering that a cab is a dollar, and most tours, even day tours will pick you up from your hotel. My only complaint, the walls are thin and the rooms smell like insecticide.

Sad ExperiencePosted Sep 29, 2011
I called ahead to Hotel as I was informed departing Costa Rica that I would need a "Fiebre Amarilla" vaccine (yellow fever vaccine) and requested that the reception at Casa Natura Galapagos call me back if the vaccine was available on the Island. A Ms. Pilar did not think this was an urgent enough medical request and let me come ahead to the Galapagos when I could have easily gotten the vaccine on the mainland. My trip was delayed 10 days, at much expense to me because of this. Other problems with my room: -Checked into occupied room -Twin beds in new room instead of requested full/queen -No hot water -No bath tub stop -No mattress pad -Mold on pillowcase -Turn down service entered room while I was asleep -Hotel lost power @0515 I have fotos of mold and bare beds

Not a bad hotel but rates too high for this standard.Posted Sep 5, 2011
I have several small gripes about this hotel which I wouldn't bother mentioning if it was priced at a lower rate. We were there for 3 nights, it was ok but not a great stay. The hotel was about 3 blocks from the main area of town, we didn't have a problem walking as the town is very safe. Taxi's are only $1 where ever you go in the town. Even though the rooms appeared to be clean we could see that the bathroom had not been cleaned very well. Hairs in the bath and on the floor also a small dead spider was on the bath when we arrived and still there 3 days later. The Television didn't work even though they had someone try to fix it on the second day. The staff were young, very pleasant and helpful even though they didn't speak good English. The island has very limited hotels and from what I heard the standards are pretty similar every where.

Decent HotelPosted Aug 11, 2011 on Hotels.com
Overall I thought it was a decent place to stay. The only issue I had was that the hot water did not have much water pressure. If you turned on the cold water then the water was too cold. However, if you turned on the hot water and waited 10 minutes before getting into the shower, then the pressure increased and you could take a decent shower. Other than it was fine. Breakfast was good, room was clean, I had plenty of space (four beds for just me) and the staff were friendly and helpful.
