Stunning hotel on the waterfront, sea lions in the lobby, birds everywhere, lovely pool and wonderful staff. Food and drinks were delicious at the restaurant and more dining choices were nearby. Best hotel on Santa Cruz, I think, and owned by the cousin of our Galapagos guide, long-time locals. Highly recommend.

When it comes to the Hotel Solymar, the location and harbor deck can not be beat. As for the rooms, they need work. Please be advised my wife and I were NOT looking for 5 star treatment, but what were were looking for was just a clean room. Having traveled the night before, what I desperately wanted (needed) was a nice shower. From the time I took my shower until the time I walked to the bed, my feet were more dirty than when I arrived. Spoke to the front desk where we received a big "sorry". Nice hotel, just make sure to ware your flip-flops

Overall great stay
For the price we paid, expected better condition of room. Little more dated than expected but i guess we were paying for the location. The patio and pool area overlooked the ocean/bay where youll have frequent marine visitors like eagle ray, sea lions and turtles. The receptionists there were great too. Would stay again for location and service. But bit pricey I'd say.
