“Loved Casa de Marita”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2008

After reading a very negative review by Julnad,Paris, I almost didn't stay at Casa de Marita and that would have been too bad for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 night stay there, as did others I met at Casa de Marita. The rooms are tastefully decorated and color coordinated. Marita has not omitted any detail. I preferred it to the larger and more impersonal brand new 5 star hotel on the island. The location on the beach is perfect and very relaxing. I found all the staff very well trained, friendly and accommodating, including Marita. Breakfast and restaurant service were great, although I preferred eating dinner at the smaller restaurants on the island.

Puerto villamil was our first stop on our fantastic trip on Galapagos Island, the island is the most fantastic place....but Casa Marita was disappointed. We stayed two nights in the Casa Verde, the view was great : just on the beach but this casa was dirty and the confort very simple, the water was cold and there were a lot of insects inside. We tried the restaurant for dinner, it was awfull (meat was cold and drinks was hot.....). You can also forget the breakfast...
Finaly, Marita the owner is not friendly, she only thinks about the money.....
After we go to the fantastic Albermarle at 1 km from Casa Marita

We visited in Nov 2006 (sorry for taking so long to write). This was the most charming place we have ever visited (and we travel alot). When we arrived, the owner Marita met us and ran over the house rules, including the by honor beer fridge. Location is right on the beach on Isabella Island. We walked right out from the hotel and while swimming off the beach were joined by penguins who swam near us. Unbelievable.

The hotel is small, maybe 10 rooms. The town on Isabella island is only about one road, so you can walk down the road to see the flamingo pond, or visit a couple local pubs and eateries. However, our stay included meals as well. Don't know how she does it on such a remote location, but meals were terrific, gourmet quality.

There are mosquitos but if you follow Marita's instructions and keep your screens closed and use the deterrent it was no problem whatsoever.

Friendly, small, gorgeous and special place.
