This hotel is located across from the pier above a artisanal gallery also owned by the hotelier, Jackie. The rooms are simple. Not luxurious, but worth the location and the price ($30 for a single, $50 for a double, and $85 for a three-person suite with refrigerator). Breakfast is also available for $5 per person. Most of the items in the gallery downstairs (clothing, art work, and assorted bric-a-brac) are hand made or, at the least, designed by Jackie and her friends. Jackie also did all of the art work in the various rooms. There is also a simple deli/coffee bar located below the hotel. Contact Jackie at [----] for more information. I would also recommend reservations. We made reservations a few days ahead of time since we were on Santa Cruz and other islands for a couple of days. Our Friday afternoon 2-hour boat ride from Santa Cruz to San Cristobal lasted five hours (quite a treat, as you might imagine). We appreciated that Jackie had kept our reservation and turned others away from the full house, since we did not show up when expected and she was not sure we were coming at all.
