Great waterfront hotel
We had a fabulous time at this hotel in San Cristobal. They offered us a free room upgrade, which was beautiful, spacious and had an amazing view. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would love the opportunity to visit the Galapagos and would stay here again!

Everything about this property was great! The service far exceeded our expectations. We were welcomed with cold towels and a welcome drink when we arrived. Our room wasn't ready yet because we were an hour early but we had a great time just sitting in the common area and overlooking the water. The staff was able to book our ferry tickets for us and they arranged a taxi for us to explore the highlands. Of the 3 places we stayed at while in the Galapagos, this place was definitely our favorite. It's in a great area and close to Muyu which is a great place for happy hour drinks and dinner. They even packed us a bagged breakfast to go on the ferry since we were going to miss the breakfast at the hotel, 10 out of 10!

Could we stay here again?Yes. Would we? Not likely
Pros: Great location; room had 2 balconies & we used one for sitting out at night looking at water, and the breezier one out back for drying clothes, wetsuits, etc.; most staff were very fluent in English (in the event you don't speak Spanish.) Cons: room is a bit worn, particularly around windows & patio doors which did not lock or had wide air gaps - we weren't concerned about security (town is quite safe), but we got many bugs in the room including mosquitoes & ants; found dried blood on pillowcase - probably washed in, but still gross; at breakfast, food was not always covered which meant birds had their beaks in everything, including jelly, breads, etc. That quickly ended our desire for free breakfasts; service was also lacking - when we sat down for breakfast we were told to move to the table that [we hadn't noticed] had silverware...why not just move the silverware?; on our last morning, about 15 minutes before breakfast, got a firm knock on the door (there are no DND signs) and were told to rise & shine if we wanted breakfast. We declined. Tourist advice we got didn't always align with our requests & we almost missed out on the highlight of our trip, La Loberia, which they declined to recommend despite our desire to snorkel with sea lions. In general, despite having almost zero needs, staff made us feel like a necessary cog, rather than like welcome guests. Also there was daily, early construction noise, but that's beyond their control.
