Great place to stay, clean rooms, nice pool, good bar and good food. if you like cocktails the Pina Colada is one of the best on Isabela. They know the best tour operators and can help you book any tour. I would certainly recommend them if you are travelling to the Galapagos. The airconditioning in the room is also very...
