“Excellent place to stay - definite selection for the next time”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

The hotel is located just by the Puerto Ayora, only ten minutes walk to the harbour. Our room was excellent, plenty of space, very clean, quiet and there is an airconditioner. Hair dryer was available from the reception.
We liked most of the service. Breakfast, laundry and pick up service from and to the airport were great. The atmosphere was friendly and the Ladies made us feel at home.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable and quiet

Very nice, clean, friendly and close to everything place. The room was extremely clean, good sized, as well as the bathroom. The filling breakfast was served in the yard. Just keep in mind that they take cash ONLY as the payment. Definitely recommend the place to anybody who is planning the trip to Galapagos Islands.

We had a problem with our flight because Aerogal made last minute changes with notifying us . My husband and I ended up in a different Island. He called Josy to let her know about it, and as soon as we arrived to St. Christobal someone was already waiting for us and made arrangement to get our destination. Thanks to Josy we were able to save our trip. She had previously book to expeditions for us, and she made sure that we did not miss them. This is the first time someone goes above and beyond for us. The hotel was nice and clean, and it was so peaceful. Breakfast was great! We had the best time ever under our circumstances thanks to Galapagos Suites. Please visit Galapagos Suites you will no regret it. The pics do not do justice.

At the end of our Galapagos Cruise we spent 3 nights in Puerto Ayora at the Galapagos Suites and what a lovely hotel.It is run by Joseline Cardoso Rhor who gives the personal touch to all her guests. There are not many rooms but are all light, airy and very clean. The air conditioning works very well, in fact too well as it was not possible to turn the volume down. Each room also had their own hammock which was very relaxing. Breakfast outside on the patio was a treat and cold drinking water was available 24/7.
You could not better the position being approx 200 meters from Av. Charles Darwin where all the main restaurants are and a short walk to the Charles Darwin Centre to see the Giant Tortoises. One thing not to miss is the goings on at the fish market, which is at the bottom of the road from the hotel. There are always at least 2 seals and many pelicans trying to steal the fresh fish. It really is a comedy show. If we ever go back to Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz we would definitely stay at the Galapagos Suites not to be confused with the Galapagos Apartment and Suite which is in a totally different area ,just off the Av. Baltra.

Room Tip: Top floors probably best but all are good.

I agree with the comments - it was a lovely place, we stayed on the top floor with a balcony and it was fantastic. Super comfortable, much bigger than I had expected and Josey was really nice. The breakfast was great, she's an excellent baker. I was super comfortable and relaxed, it's unfortunate that we didn't get much time to spend enjoying our beautiful and super clean room. It's also very close to town, a few minutes walk and we got picked up for our day tours daily with no problems at all.

The bathroom was clean and really big. The cleaning lady was also super friendly and nice.

The entire suite was super pretty, prettier than the pictures do it justice. It is expensive though but so is everything else on the island.

I enjoyed this hotel and for people who can afford it, I would highly recommend it!

My husband and I spent 5 days at Galapagos suites and we were very pleased with accommodations', excellent breakfasts, excellent and most hospitable owner, Josie, and an all around great experience! Josie was friendly, hospitable, knowledgeable, and most helpful! We had a king size bed on top floor and room , view and island breezes were great!
We would definitely stay at Galapagos suites again. :)

Lured by fanatical reviews of this place, we were really expecting a lot more. On the positive side, it was a clean and decent-sized room (I'm not sure what made it a "suite" since the only other room was a bathroom) with a nice balcony from which you could sort of see the ocean (and also a lot of construction). On the negative side was . . . practically everything else. There are two "Josey"'s here that run this place, a mother and a daughter. Our experience was that the older Josey (the mother) was kind and hospitable and that the younger Josey (the daughter) just seemed to hate our guts. I don't know if she has this attitude with everyone or it was just us. Anyway, anything the mother arranged or prepared was nice. Anything the daughter arranged or prepared was skimpy or unsatisfactory, in particular the "breakfasts" she was in charge of (hardly more than a slice of boiled ham and a piece of processed cheese).
