We bought the 7-night adventure package with Red Mangrove Lodge. Everything we read about how fantastic was all true. We spent the extra $$$ and got the Suite Mayor, which made it a trip of a lifetime. Suite Mayor had the most awesome view of the bay!
The food was great,and the staff had an amazing knowledge of Galapagos. The excursions ran perfectly smooth. It was fun meeting people from all over the world, too. But one hardly had to leave the complex to see what we came to Galapagos to see: the wildlife. Yes, so many of the animals just hang out at the Lodge - they obviously have great taste, too.
Do yourself a favor and ONLY book this place. You will not regret it.
One tiny bit of advice: if you get at all seasick, take the small plane (not included in adventure package) between the two lodges instead of the boat/taxi service (which is included). The lodge can help you book the flights for the best travel times around the excursions.
