This is a perfect place to stay if you are on a budget with a family. They have larger delux cottages for family groups and two single bed rooms, like a motel (all with AC and TV). The breakfast that comes with this includes eggs, ham and cheese, yogurt and granola, coffee, juice, fruit, rolls and jam and toast. It is also next to the Laguna las Nintas which is in a mangrove area with lots of wildlife. It is far enough from town (four blocks) that it is mercifully quiet. The pool is lovely as is the gazebo for outdoor reading, the pool table and Ping pong area as well as the outdoor bar. There is a computer center in the lovely air conditioned lobby.
The staff is bi-lingual and most helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.
But those four blocks are an easy walk to restaurants, shops and sightseeing. All our day trips to other islands (Floreana, Isabella) met down at the docks. From the docks you can also take a water taxi over to Angermeyer's waterfront hotel which is where the trail begins to find a lovely beach (Germany) which is right in front of the Finch Bay Eco Hotel. This is also on the way to the Las Grietas...or Crevices the beautiful natural pools for swimming.
You can also walk or take a quick $1 cab ride to the Darwin Center on the other side of town.
On the way back if it's after 5 you can enjoy the Handicrafts markets. A few blocks up is an outdoor street food fair. Awesome authentic local food for a really cheap. you eat at picnic tables.
Meanwhile back at the hotel you can swim until after dark and if the bar is open ask for their Pina Colada. YUMMY!
