Hotel Pelican Bay

Reviewed 20 June 2014

Well located near the fish market and several restaurants. The twin bed rooms are clean and spacious but with a small washroom. A/C window unit, WiFi works but somewhat slow. You may have to wait for 5 minutes for hot water.

This place is a good value for $45 per night. I had a king-size bed, hot shower, refrigerator and breakfast included! Location is ideal for walking the streets or visiting the Darwin station. It's less than a block from the waterfront where you can watch the pelicans line up and quiver while waiting for fish guts from the fishermen! It did not have a coffee maker, desk or chair o everything must be done on your bed! Also, the matress covers must come in three pieces because the king-size beds were very lumpy!

First of all, there are no real deals in Puerto Ayora. You will overpay for what you get, just because its an expensive place. That said, this is an OK option. The location isnt bad, a block from the main street and all of the restaurants and bars. The rooms had hot water and AC. The beds were small, but thats to be expected. Breakfast isnt bad either! I would come back for sure.

We stayed here twice during our trip, the rooms are very spacious, 2 double beds, air conditioning, fridge and wifi. The bathroom was clean and pleasant. The location is very good just a few minutes walk to the main street of the town.

Room Tip: We stayed here twice and had 2 different rooms, they were both the same.

Stayed three nights in this hotel. Great position and good sized clean rooms. Breakfast basic but very similar to other hotels on Galapagos Islands. Non english speaking owners did not go out of their way to help when I had problems, not of the hotels making. However younger english speaking guy (son?) could not have been more helpful and full marks to him for trying to sort things out for me.

Hotel Pelican Bay has enough amenities to give you a pleasant stay close to everything. It's clean, well maintained, has wifi and is a very short walk to restaurants, souvenirs and the giant tortoises at the Darwin Center.

Reading lamps next to the beds seem to be the only thing missing.

Outstanding location. You can't beat it.. just off the Main Street. clean, nice pool. Rooms could use lamps by beds versus the overhead light plus some updating. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms, very simple breakfast. The value is very good here. I would recommend highly but don't expect the Ritz!!!!!
