2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Located in one of the most biodiverse and scenic area of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno in San Cristobal island, just 100 yards walk to the wonderful Playa Mann beach, this Ocean View Bed and Breakfast provides the perfect retreat for your Galapagos experience. Nothing will interrupt you except the sounds of the finches and warbles singing and Galapagos sea lions barking on our nearby Playa Mann beach. If you prefer wildlife over nightlife, this is the place for you. Snorkeling with sea lions, hiking among Darwin´s finches and mockingbirds, artisanal fishing, surfing, kayaking, and Galapagos Giant Tortoise viewing are all within minutes of Casa Playa Mann. As a local Galapagos family hotel, we want to share the natural beauty of the Galapagos National Park and Marine Reserve, but alsothe charm of local people. We strive to create an atmosphere of simplicity, comfort and elegance, with attentive, personalized service.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had 5 wonderful days at the hotel Casa Playa Mann in February 2024. We had a very cozy room with a very spacious and well-furnished terrace with a wonderful view. The hotel is beautiful and cozy and perfectly clean. The entire staff is very friendly and accommodating and does their utmost to meet all wishes. A truly 5-star holiday.

Property's Favourite Review
We stayed in Casa Playa Mann just for a few nights in January after our cruise and before going back home. The location is just perfect, close to the small town and nice beaches. What made our stay truly exceptional and worth even more than a 5-star review was the warmth and service given by the owner Jose. You could feel he was always ready to help us out whenever we needed it. On top of that he is himself a naturalist and certified photographer so he’s really your guy when you’re looking for recommendations for activities etc ! We had a small local plane to catch to go to Santa cruz to get our international flight and had quite some issues with this company, Jose did his absolute best to call the airplane company, the airport and even more to make sure we would be able to catch our flight ! Rooms and breakfast also very nice and clean but I would go back to Casa Playa Mann just for the service alone ! Thanks Jose and your family, hope to see you again someday 👍

We stayed for a few days before heading to other islands and had a wonderful time! The owners and the staff were extremely warm and accommodating, helping us out with activity recommendations, taxis, snorkels, timing breakfast around tours, etc.. and sharing their knowledge of the island. This really helped make our trip relaxing and special. The location worked great for us: very low key, right by Playa Mann and a short walk to the Centro de Interpretación Ambiental Gianni Arismendy. Getting to town is easy on foot or by a quick taxi ride. Rooms were clean and the bed was comfy. I recommend trying the breakfast, which was excellent. Thanks for everything!

This is without a doubt the most welcoming hotel that I have ever had the pleasure to stay. The brother and sister that own and operate this very small boutique hotel have gone out of their way at every opportunity to make me feel welcome as a family member rather than as a guest. It is located near a quiet family beach and only a 5 minute walk to the town. It’s quiet and peaceful here. My room was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed. They has preset the air conditioner to 23 C so it was cool as soon as I walked in. Plenty of hot water which was most appreciated after spending 2 weeks on a sailboat. Breakfast was prepared to order with great coffee, fresh local fruit, breads, eggs, and a fruit juice beverage. Hammocks abound in the open air entrance.

We ended our Galapagos trip with the 3rd island being in San Cristobal and our stay at Casa Playa Mann. It was the perfect way to end our travels with such wonderful people like Jose and his lovely staff who are all very warm and welcoming. What I particularly liked about this place unlike any other that we stayed at was how it felt like we were staying at someone's house but still had our privacy. It was very comfortable and a relaxed vibe but the dedicated staff is very attentive to detail (especially, the wonderful breakfast that awaits you each morning!). I always love the opportunity to talk to someone who is a local and hear more about their life and connection to where we are visiting and Jose certainly made himself available to engage in these discussions. He was very helpful with any questions that came up in planning our day. Our two daughters (10 & 8 years old) loved the hammock and swing set up in the front entrance. Casa Playa Mann was close in proximity to pretty much everything we needed to access which made it easy. It felt very safe, comfortable and clean! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a personalized stay as it worked out great for our family of four.

Stayed a couple of nights recently and loved the place. Near everything but away from the noise. Breakfast was great and fresh. Jose helped us plan things and arranged a driver to take us to the Highlands. Rooms are clean, wifi works well. Would loved to have stayed longer.

Our stay at Casa Playa Mann was a huge highlight of our whole trip in Ecuador. The business is run by a family and we were treated like members of the family from the moment we arrived. The room was clean and spacious, the location was great (super close to Playa Mann where there are lots of playful sea lions) and José offered very helpful advice to us both for San Cristobal and for the other islands in the Galapagos that we were visiting. Would give this place more than 5 stats if possible, thank you guys!

We had an amazing December stay at Casa Playa Mann with our teens! Nestled perfectly at walking distance from the main boulevard and restaurants, it's steps away from Playa Mann beach—imagine stunning sunsets surrounded by playful sea lions! Not to mention, it's conveniently close to the Interpretation Center, Las Tijeretas for fantastic snorkeling, and Punta Carola beach. We opted for the Ocean View superior rooms, and wow! Spacious, spotless, equipped with AC, fridge, ample luggage space, and a delightful terrace featuring a hammock and comfy furniture. Those lazy afternoons were pure bliss—sipping wine, soaking in the view from the balcony after a day of activities. But the true gem? The family behind this haven. Incredibly friendly, ever-helpful, brimming with fantastic suggestions, and offering top-notch service. And oh, the breakfast! Hands down the best during our 12-day island-hopping adventure. Casa Playa Mann is an absolute winner!

Jose and his family were great hosts, very friendly with a welcoming hello and time to chat, the breakfast was amazing and very relaxing. This little slice of heaven was safe and quiet and walking distance to town to shops, eating and sightseeing. The room was clean and spacious with a relaxing patio that included a small frig and drying racks for wet swim wear, the view of the harbor beautiful. Highly recommend staying here.
