Place if beautiful, right on the water, and the staff was wonderful. Place is immaculate and the coffee was great (and surprisingly, very reasonably priced) as was the fresh-squeezed juice. They made us feel right at home even though we weren't guests. We enjoyed the ocean view, read some books, and swung in the hammock. Wonderful place that I would love to stay in the next time around.

So sad you didn’t stay at the hotel! Next time you should stay with us and enjoy properly our accommodations. The prices have been well fixed, no overprices. It’s no necessary to stay in La Casa de Marita to be treated as a guest, every visitor is our guest. We’re glad for your visit, hope you can come again.

Best Regards,

Marita Zechettin

We stayed at La Casa de Marita for 3 nights during our honeymoon trip to the Galapagos. The hotel is very charming, with loads of character! We stayed in the Mediterranean suite, which has a large private terrace and ocean views. It was perfect!! There was a king bed, a small kitchenette, a dining table and chairs, and a wardrobe. Our favorite spot was the terrace. We took a few naps out there and enjoyed views of the sunset each evening. The water in the shower was consistently hot, which was a huge plus! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Emilia was particularly helpful and her English is great! We had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant, which was lovely. The food was prepared fresh (you have to place your order 30-45 min before you want to dine) and was very tasty. The food is very reasonably priced and the portions are quite large. The shrimp crepes were amazing. We wandered into Iguana Crossing to check out the property and the restaurant menu. Everything was overpriced and the hotel seemed a bit stuffy. If you want to stay at an upscale hotel with a Galapagos feel, look no further!

Room Tip: The king size bed and private terrace make the Meditteranean suite great for couples!

La Casa de Marita is perfectly located right on the beach yet central to town and restaurants. The property is beautiful and elegant and well kept. The staff are attentive to your needs and speak English. The rooms and bathrooms were the best throughout our Ecuadorean vacation. There is a living room and common area, a computer for internet, a cute little library, and a patio that overlooks the water and sunset. I enjoyed bringing a blanket outside and reading a book.

Breakfast was included. It was a buffet style but they also had made to order eggs. They also have a restaurant for lunch and dining. The eating area overlooks the beach as well.

I highly recommend La Casa de Marita for your stay.

We've just left the Casa da Marita on Isabela island and we had a wonderful relaxing time. Our suite opened out on the beach and we had the sound of waves crashing on the shore 24 hours a day. A lovely big room, with fridge, desk and chair, huge bed with comfy pillows, spotlessly cleaned every day, it was heaven.

The staff were helpful throughout, we had laundry done for peanuts, and ate breakfast every morning in the equally well appointed dining room. We saw the other higher rated hotel on the island and we agreed we would much rather stay at the Casa da Marita. Walking distance from town and the port, they also helped us organize tours. Mere steps from your room you were on the sunloungers on the beach.

Breakfast was typical of the islands, the first day we were served it as we were the only guests, then it became a buffet. There was free drinking water in reception, and good enough free wifi coverage. For the room we had with the view it had, the price was pretty good too, a shade over £100/night.

A wonderful few days.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra and get a suite

La Casa de Marita is a beautiful property located right on the beach. Their staff is really nice and willing to help you with advice and suggestions as to what to do in the beautiful islands. Rooms are very clean and the property itself feels like having a vacation home. I highly recommend to stay here when you visit the Galapagos, one of the most beautiful places on earth.
