Hostal Rincon de George
Ranked #8 of 10 Hotels in Isabela
Reviewed 24 August 2012

We stayed there three nights as a family. Apparently the price was higher than indicated in the previous review ($ 120 per night + $ 25 for breakfast for the five of us).
The hotel is indeed clean, beddings are ok (although a bit stiff), and the owners are nice and welcoming.
However, given the price range on Isabela, there is nothing exceptional. Rooms could even be slightly improved with things like a bedside lamp (to complement these awful energy saving ceiling lights) and a few local decorative items.
Carlos took us on a Tintoreras tour with another Group, which he did not mention to us before...However he took us to a nice snorkelling spot where we swam with turtles, sharks and sea lions, a great experience.
Bear in mind that Isabela is a laid back place, where wildlife is all around and the hotel/lodging offer is not of high quality.

Room Tip: There is one double room which although a bit small has a sea view

We found this hotel after wondering about the town. Very reasonably priced at $40 for double room with large bathroom, good wifi, TV, aircon, use of a well equipped kitchen and a rooftop terrace.Very clean on arrival and our room was cleaned every day when we were out. It's not on the beach but it's less than two minutes away. The couple who run this place are lovely, the husband is also a guide for the island and can help with tours. It's on the left hand side of the main square, above the post office. Everything is walking distance in this town so the hotel is close to everything. Definitely recommend.

Rincón de George is located on the small central square with lovely ocean views from the terrace. The owners Carla and Carlos were very helpful in arranging tours and Carlos is a guide himself. The small extra charge for breakfast was well worth the eggs, fruit, cereals and breads. The rooms are equipped with frig, TV, air conditioning and new furniture. The shower was very large, with lovely tiles.

I stayed at this hostel for 4 days with my son.
The rooms are clean the breakfast was superb and most important:
The owners, Carlos and Carlota go out of the way to make sure our stay will be joyful.
Carlos is a certified guide for the area. He is extremely knowledgeable, excellent English and escorted us to the Sierra Negra volcano track and also the Tintureras tour.
Strongly recommended!

I stayed at this new hostel...but really it is a hotel! It's new and the owners are attentive, knowlegable, speak English pretty well, and cook a lovely breakfast. This place is "LA" clean! Nice tile bathrooms, great beds, cable, and they can do your laundry in washer and dryers...fantastic.
