My elderly dad and I stayed here three nights. This hotel is very well located, right in the heart of San Cristobal's main tourist areas and pier. You can walk to all the stores as well as the Interpretation Center, and a couple of small beaches. The pier where the cruise ships come in is a few minute walk. Even the Airport is only a 5 min ride. The views form the breakfast area and the rooms facing the waterfront are spectacular. The breakfast was amazing.. felt like we were staying in someone's home.. served various courses and with much care. During breakfast, the finches and warblers come perch at your table (either endearing or annoying depending on your perspective). Also, sea lions sit right on the hotel's steps, providing great pic opportunities. The staff, especially Santiago was wonderful and provided us much help with our luggage and even got our boarding passes for our trip since he happened to be on the same flight to Quito. Of the three nights, we had the entire place to ourselves for two of the nights (bonus of going off peak season- don't be fooled, the place (approx 7 rooms) is often sold out). Our room was beautiful and we had two balconies. The bathroom was very large. Truly a memorable stay!!! Highly recommended!!
