The hotel stuff are very friendly and helpful. It has been in short of water for two nights after a hot day (maybe a general issue in the island). They did try to help and provided a small bucket of drinking water for us to clean the face before the water came back in the morning. The hotel is clean and quiet. The breakfast is exceptional.

Jose was excellent, he helped us get taxis, accomodated us for early breakfast, answered numerous questions. We were able to walk to restaurants, but were not in the hustle of the main tourist section. I highly recommend this hotel

This is a lovely hotel, located close to the Charles Darwin Centre. Jose took great pride in personally serving freshly prepared breakfast to his guests. We could avail of free water in the foyer to refill our bottles. We were not very comfortable with the lack of privacy using the bathroom .... in our room, (Iguana) the bathroom wasn't a separate room to the bedroom

We highly recommend staying at this property for the charm, cleanliness, central location and, most importantly, the excellent hospitality. Our visit to Santa Cruz would not have been complete if we stayed anywhere else. Jose Miguel went over-and-beyond to ensure that we had the best possible time: custom-tailoring breakfast time our schedule and dietary needs, offering free bikes to ride around town, calling taxis personally on his WhatsApp. Truly, we are thankful to Jose Miguel and the team at Hotel Palace Galapagos.

A really lovely experience
The hotel is a lovely small hotel, conveniently located and our room was very comfortable. But the best part about the hotel is the wonderful service- from the time we arrived and the way we were warmly greeted we were made to feel special throughout our stay- right until the time we were put into a cab for our trip to the airport. We would highly recommend this hotel.
