Property gorgeous and staff wonderful. We loved how spacious room was. It’s a $10 cab ride to town but closer to port for most day tours.

Great Service!!
The Royal Palm has great service. We had to change our stay a number of times due to the COVID-19 restrictions. They were very accommodating regarding our changes..

Beautiful, spacious villa in the middle of the national park in Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos. The staff were excellent and accommodating, and the restaurant was superb, going out of their way to accommodate our food requests. The only problem- not a trivial one sadly- was that the property wasn't fully insect-proof (despite fly screens), so we had a mosquito biting us all night.

Does not live up to star rating
We were looking forward to this hotel, but it does not live up to it's star rating as it has no restaurant at the moment. It is being refurbished, but we were only told 24 hours beforehand, really not good enough. Yes they run a shuttle into town, some 25 mins distant, but on one day there was no shuttle coming back, so that was a taxi at our expense. Absolutely no food available after lunch. Only got half of the breakfast we ordered on day 1, day 2 was much better, but still has to be eaten sitting in your room with no place setting or condiments. Shower room left a lot to be desired, who knows what lurks below the wooden slating! Millipedes galore in the room! Bed was very comfortable and furniture classic and good, but curtains don't meet and hang off in places. Biggest disappointment was that, although there was space to sit outside the room, there was nothing to sit on. Staff varied from being very helpful and pleasant, to one manager who could not have been more unpleasant if she tried. General cleanliness was not good, green mould and moss growing everywhere, in the pool shower, on all the paths, on lots of the buildings. There is nothing around, so no options to eat elsewhere other than town. We moved on our last night to be in town where there were other people and where we could eat!

Beautiful and secluded hotel nested away in the Highlands, perfect if you’re looking for a peaceful stay or romantic break. A 20 minute taxi drive away from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Ayora, really was lovely to return after a long day out to the mist and jungle feel.
