Redefining luxury and comfort. The brand new Ikala Hotel was built with a focus on sustainability and protecting the environment. The hotel is protected from the strong Galapagos sun by the surrounding beautiful trees and gardens giving to the whole ambiance a natural freshness. The hotel features a lovely swimming pool, bar area, and a beautiful terrace located on top of the main building, where you can find the restaurant and resting area. The terrace has an incredible view to the Puerto Ayora harbor.

Beautiful Modern Hotel (3/19) with friendly accommodating staff. We enjoyed the pool, the free bicycles, and the quiet location close to the main pier, and other restaurants. The upstairs breakfast area was inviting and i wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Visiting Galapagos the main focus is not on the accommodation, probably the best option is to stay on the boat. But if you prefer to have a good night sleep, in a very large room and a huge bad, Ikala is the place.

Completamente de acuerdo con la opinión de Hugo H. Es lamentable que Tripadvisor publique opiniones que son tan obvias de personas enfermas que tratan de desprestigiar el buen nombre del hotel Ikala en particular. Este tipo de opiniones y acusaciones que inclusive tratan de desprestigiar a la Policía del Ecuador, caen en el ámbito penal y el hotel por supuesto se reserva el derecho de iniciar acciones legales contra Tripadvisor por sacar opiniones no verificadas con documentos legales de personas que se esconden tras un seudónimo.

Estimado Hugo, Muchas gracias por su apoyo incondicional, si efectivamente hay muchas personas que dan comentarios sin tener bases ni respaldos para justificar los mismos. Agradecemos inmensamente su opinión positiva sobre nuestro IKALA Galapagos Hotel y el servicio impecable que ofrecemos. Nuestro mejores deseos de parte de todo el equipo.
