“Fantastic hot showers!”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

We stayed here for a couple of nights after our Galapagos cruise  on the wonderful Tip Top III. The hotel was recommended by our guide on the boat. We got a room at the back if the hotel with big windows, air-con and tv that didn't work! We opted for breakfast which was at a restaurant across the road. The owner, Fanny is a lovely lady who runs the shop below as well. There is wifi but it didn't quite reach the room. Some of the hotel is undergoing renovations. This was one of the best, hot and powerful showers we have had in 6 months of travel in South America.
