This is an authentic stay in the Galapagos upcountry that emphasizes simplicity, nature, and natural resources. Surrounded in a lush green tropical setting while still being only 15 minutes away from town by car, you’ll enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature with easy access to everything. The staff does everything to ensure that you enjoy your visit with their focus on hospitality. Rooms are spacious and comfortable but do not seek out luxury here. Instead you connect to what’s important while enjoying the freshest breakfast breads, eggs, fruits, juices, and coffee (most grown onsite). We also had them arrange our tours and other meals and it was a fantastic experience knowing that everything was taken care for you. Expect authentic, spacious, and rustic accommodations that allow you to enjoy nature itself.

Quaint; simple; no bells and whistles. Comfortable. Great location because you can see the highlands/farming area, are close to the lava tunnels, and is a good midpoint between the main town and the airport/cruise port. You can hire a "white truck taxi" to take you to Puerto Ayora (the main town) for $5 in about 10 minutes and $25 to the airport/cruise port in about 30 minutes.

Lovely quiet restful stay
This hotel has extremely helpful and friendly staff. Rooms were super comfy. It was just a long way from anywhere and out of your pickup zones. But Cheo was very happy to arrange taxis
