This hotel was part of a one week vacation in the Galapagos, located in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island. The only reason why it doesn't get a 5 star review is because I think there is still room for improvement. First of all, if you are new to the Galapagos idea or Island

The service is quite good, the localization excellent, but the cleaness not good, specially in the bathrooms. The breakfast to be improved, no options and bad service. I would recommend the hotel due to the localization and swimming pool.

3 night stay after cruise. Hotel Ninfa exceeded expectations. We had deluxe room facing pool. It was clean, roomy, good a/c. Breakfast was not fancy but plenty of good food to get the day started. GREAT location. Close to pier, supermarket and dining. Office helped print

Talk to a taxi driver the day before to schedule a trip with him. It costs some $25 and around an hour to get to the airport.

Sorry to be so late with this reply but I stuck with the hotel owner. His recommendations were solid gold and I did not need to seek other services. Thanks for writing.

Sorry, Sandy, I don't remember the times. However, I do have this tip for you. The Ninfa owner knows the times and you can Skype the hotel to ask questions like this or wait until you arrive. My only suggestion is to leave a good two hours before the ferry, because I did that and arrived just in time. Another thing is that I was a little shocked at the distance between the ferry and the Hotel. Seems like it was about a 35 minute ride, so be prepared for that. Have a blast; it was for my son and me one of the best trips ever!!! Dave

Do they have air conditioning?
Yes. Our room had the newer in-room A/C that was remote controlled by a 'clicker'. It worked just fine! -dh
