Reviewed 7 January 2014

We stayed here for four nights in January 2014. We had a nice-sized room on the first floor with a double bed, a ceiling fan and banos/shower next door, screened windows, clean sheets and towels every day. Considering that it was situated in the centre of town it was quiet. We particularly liked the lovely vegetable garden that you can sit in, with avocado trees, yucca, tomato and other veg growing, this was tastefully lit up at night, there were moths flying all evening.

It would have been nice to have had fridge and a couple of chairs and a desk in the room, however the wifi did work well all the time and there were no power cuts while we were there. Isabel did give us a large battery-powered light just in case.

The hotel is situated about a five minute walk from the Marina in Puerto Ayora and within easy reach of Tortuga Bay, the Charles Darwin research centre and other local attractions.

Isabel personally cooks breakfast each morning with freshly-made juice, wholemeal bread, scambled eggs and the coffee was excellent.

All-in-all a little gem of a place to find in a busy town like Puerto Ayora and very reasonably priced, recommended - we would be happy to return here

Room Tip: We like a room off the ground floor with windows and a fan and our own shower, this was provided without hesitation.

The owner Isabel is a wonderful host and really took good care of me from arrival to departure. She was ready with maps and a guide book and gave me some tips and helped with arranging a taxi when I needed to leave. She made breakfast for you fresh everyday when you were ready and always made fresh juice. Her family lives in the same building as well but except for meals you wouldn't know it and was nice to interact with a really nice family and learn some more Spanish. Should I have the pleasure of returning, I would definitely stay here again.
