I went to this hotel and the pool is not very hot or very big like it seems in the pictures. The restaurant of the hotel is very big and comfortable and fresh food. The room that I stay my first time was very ugly and the bath was very small also the door was very bad. In my other...

This is not a luxury hotel, but it does the job and is perfectly pleasant. We stayed there twice, and our rooms were clean, functional and had air conditioning. The location is great, close to the "food street", and walking distance from the main square/boat port. There is also a small supermarket and ATM down there too. The breakfast area...

Stayed here 2 nights in a comfortable room. Room spacious as well the bathroom. It comes with hot water, airco, wifi, also in the room and a few nice sitting areas close to the rooms. Breakfast was decent but with the space and employers they have, I think they can make more out of it.

We stayed in this hotel with a group of secondary students. The rooms were large and adequate for our needs. We had a combination of double, triple and quad rooms. There were bath towels enough for everyone, but no washcloths (which is a common thing in some areas of the world - always take a washcloth when you travel). Many...

This hotel is a disaster, if you pay USD 15 per night is fine, but the average rate is USD 100, the "restaurant" is a place where you have to take an old tray and go to ask for food like in a military school, the rooms are very uncomfortable and extremely noisy, there is a disco just next to...

First off, let me say that I am used to smaller European sized rooms, so I did not find these smaller rooms to be confining. The room was adequate for sleeping and bathing, and the room I stayed in was not near any activity. The internet was useless, which I am sure has been mentioned in other reviews, but I...

The interner connection provided by the WiFi of the hotel was terrible. Gmail replied that it is sensing a slow connection. Note - the WiFi reception was very strong, it is just that the internet connection is 1995 speed. At the end that was not fixed and a very small discount was offered.

O.K. Avoid rooms 401 ++ above the restaurant and the Disco. Breakfast with lot's of goodies starts at 6:30 prior to your island trips. I stayed 4 nights in room 113 (single bed, nice and clean with small TV - Spanish) the room was below the staircase and flooring to the hotel restaurant (2nd floor), lot's of running school kids...

I stayed here with a group in February, and found it generally adequate for its price class (the group trip was on a tight budget) - especially as everything is fairly expensive in Galápagos … as one might expect for a place 600 miles offshore. We stayed there for a few nights mid-week … which, perhaps was the reason we...
