Ikala is a charming boutique-type hotel. The rooms are spacious and perfectly situated near the pier and very close to the best shopping and restaurants. The hotel staff are all EXCELLENT - polite, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. They were very helpful with Galapagos sight-seeing recommendations and tours. The rooftop restaurant with city/coastal views is a unique feature and absolutely breathtaking. Lastly, we really enjoyed having access to free bikes to leisurely stroll around the island. We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and could not have been more pleased with our selection.
