We checked in at this hotel after 'fleeing' from a 'red-ant-owned' room in another hotel. And we found what we needed, a clean room with a comfortable bed and a working shower. Wi-Fi works pretty good, too. In our room, there was no AC, but no problem as it gets cool at night anyway.
Coming from mainland Ecuador, the Galapagos seem pretty expensive. Taking this fact as given, I think Sir Francis Drake offers acceptable value for the price compared to some others in the area. We checked in a second time after visiting the other islands.
