“The Best of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Simply lovely. We were booked for 4 nights after having spent 6 nights on a "live aboard" dive boat. How refreshing to have a large, well-appointed room, peace and quiet, a wonderful restaurant on site and Elsie to greet us as if we were long-time friends. The taxi ride to the main town pier was no more than 2 minutes and the wait time for the taxi less than that. Elsie was a wealth of information on almost any topic. My favorite questions were about the history of the island and the Angermeyer family, all of which she was very well versed. We tried local restaurants, art galleries and local shops, all at her recommendation. The visit to Santa Cruz island was made more pleasant with our stay at Angermeyer Waterfront Inn. We can't seem to find one negative aspect to our stay!!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. The hotel has the best location, accessible only by watertaxi (a 2-minute ride from the village's main pier), a great outdoor deck (used as breakfast area and restaurant) overlooking the bay, is very well maintained, has nice and clean rooms, helpful staff, impeccable service, and great food in the restaurant (it's where I had the best lobster in the Galapagos). There's really nothing bad I could say about the place. It was the best hotel of the 3 we stayed in in the Galapagos islands.

This is a beautiful little hotel that is meticulously maintained, decorated and landscaped. Every detail was thought about. Our kids were fascinated with watching the sea life below the restaurant terrace during the day and night.
The food was delicious and the service was always excellent. Elsie made sure that we were well taken care of, as though we were friends staying at her home.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We enjoyed watching the sea life from the deck through your boy's eyes. Hopefully their trip to the Galapagos is one they will always remember and we are pleased we could be a part of it.

Ideal location for staying in Santa Cruz. Hotel is no more than 2 minutes on water taxi, away from main street and traffic. Water Taxi is available around the clock. Hotel is on 2 minutes walk from the beach. Rooms are very spacious, cleaned, really nice, and very tastefully decorated. House keeping is very efficient, twice a day. Hotel management and staff is incredibly pleasant. We showed up at the hotel without reservation. Elsie, herself, greeted us at the front and made our stay really pleasant. View from the hotel and restaurant on the waterfront is beautiful as you can see the marine life, mountains, main street, nearby islands, and yachts coming to the harbor. Dinning at the restaurant was amazing. Elsie made special arrangements for our 1st wedding anniversary. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling to Santa Cruz.

Room Tip: Choose Pelican room or Mezaluna. The best view to the waterfront, sunrise and sunset.

Rooms are very clean and spacious. We had slightly problems with getting ample hot water for showers. Restaurant is meticulous with their food quality and presentation. Location on the water allows you to view the people, animals and easily launch your kayak to explore

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a view of the water

The location is incredible and you must take a "water taxi". You are within 1 hour of Las Grietas and there is a nice little beach just 5mn away, there is also another cove, about halfway right before the salt marshes (seal and turtles). Tens of Iguanas everywhere, birds, seals swimming right under the dining area. We had a small bungalow at the foot of the impressive "Gaudiesque" 3 or 4 story main building, nothing fancy but a working bathroom and A/C. They have a pitcher with fresh water and you go to the bar to get refills. We enjoyed the well kept gardens, the nice breakfasts and the delicious meals, I recommend whatever is the Special for the day. The Galapagos are not cheap, this hotel is a bit expensive but you get a great location, no noise or dust (or worse). Teppie, the owner was very welcoming and the staff was extremely pleasant. This is not the Ritz-Carlton by any means but it's quite pleasant if you can appreciate simplicity and nature.

Room Tip: I think you should go for the 4 story building, these are the more expensive rooms...and it appears...

We stayed only 1 night during a 2 day visit to Santa Cruz but thoroughly savored the experience and would wholeheartedly recommend the Angermeyer to anyone visiting the island. We were greeted by Elsie, the owner who had a waterfront table waiting for us with cool tropical juices. She explained the amenities, restaurant, water taxi information and was available to answer any questions. The hotel is literally right on the water with the most amazing views and sunset. The dinner meal we had there on the water at sunset was something out of a movie, sea turtle coming by to wish us buenos tardes, one of the most delicious meals, incredible views, topnotch service, 3 singing waiters and a sparkling candle in a piece of amazing carrot cake for my birthday, and relaxing ambience. Rooms were immaculate, quiet and spacious. Front desk was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet was abundant and yummy. Private beach with lovely views.

Room Tip: We had side rooms which did not overlook the water but a few steps around the corner from the rooms...
