Room was clean & basic. Breakfast was simple. Owner extremely nice and even loaned her sunblock and a jacket. Warning, they do not take credit cards so bring cash. They take wire transfer before arrival but obviously I am not sending money to an unknown entity. Convenient location, walking distance of shore. Taxi super cheap $1 from hotel to shore. Shops and restaurants all within walking distance. Hotel only has 5 rooms. Very personal service.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony. All have hammocks for a nice nap.

Our room was beautiful and clean - the bathroom was great with this fantastic shower. Location is perfect. Joseline is an amazing owner - she was waiting for us when we arrived, and was actually worried because we were late (we got a little lost on our own...). She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided us all the information we needed. We were going scuba diving and she had confirmed the time with the scuba company before we even arrived!! She also makes fantastic breakfast - I cannot say enough nice things about her or this place.

Joseline does an excellent job - she is constantly concerned that everything is perfect for you. The breakfast brownies were superb. The room was spacious and well thought out. It is a 2 minute walk from town and near the walk to the Charles Darwin Centre. She arranged a trip with a private guide for us to some of the island's sites and it was outstanding value. We had a bit of a broblem with the hot water but mentioned it to her and it was fixed straight away - as far as I am aware it is an island wide problem and she has a back up system. I would be surprised if Galapagos Suites isn't the best value for money accommodation on the Galapagos. :-)

Our room was very clean and spacious. The breakfast was good and the staff very helpful.
It is not on the sea front (very close to) which could be a disadvantage for somebody but this guarantees more peace and quiet

Room Tip: Take the rooms facing south on the second or third floor

Galapagos Suites was the best possible place that we could have stayed. Josy and her mom were the best hosts ever. Josy knows everything and everyone on the island. She is super friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and very fun to hang out with. Her mom makes amazing breakfasts and is super hospitable. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

Galapagos Suites is the perfect place to stay on Santa Cruz. The hotel is bright, clean and comfortable. The staff goes out of your way to make sure you have everything you need - and more! The included breakfast was convenient and delicious. Located close to all the shops, restaurants and tourist activities, I'd recommend this hotel to anyone!!
