“The newer building was nice”
Reviewed 31 August 2009

We stayed in the newer building in July as part of our Galapagos tour. It was a block from the original complex were we ate breakfast and dinner. Our room on the 3rd floor was quiet, clean and had a modern tiled bathroom. The dining area had purified water dispenser and that was a plus. We just kept refilling our water bottles instead of having to buy drinking water. The breakfasts and dinners were typical Ecuadorian food,fresh juice, bread, jam, fruit, eggs and instant coffee or tea for breakfast and for dinner, fresh juice, soup, chicken or fish, rice and vegetables.

There was a large group of students staying in the main lodge, they were noisy and occupied the wireless internet spots, so we could not log on.

Reviewed 12 August 2009

Simple hotel as you would expect on this remote island. The room was small and very basic. The bed linen was too short for the bed. The shower took several minutes to adjust the water temperature, so the water was always either too hot or too cold. The A/C was also difficult to adjust. I got little sleep both nights due to very loud birds nearby that went on and on starting at 1 am (way before sunrise). I don't know what other accommodations are available on Isabela Island.
