We were put into a room on the inside facing the tiny pool in the courtyard- the tables set up for breakfast were right outside our door. The room itself was very clean and comfortable, but a room with an ocean view would have been much nicer since the hotel is right on the beach. We booked a very short...

Dear Debbie Many thanks for your comment and feedback on Hotel Albemarle; it is really important for us to know what we need to improve or what our passengers like.

Hotel booked through the agency so didn't know what to expect... It's located perfectly on the beach. We spent 4 days on Isabela over the New Year and this hotel was perfect. The views, very friendly staff. iI is right what the previous review said about Carlos - such a gentlemen and so helpful.

Right in front of the ocean, clean, quiet, comfortable, and air conditioned. Comfortable beds, and a very nice breakfast every morning. Owner, Carlos, on site to take care of any of your needs. Certainly one of the best hotels on Isabella Island!

This place is ideal for a quiet holiday right on the waterfront. The rooms had views but with a lot of power lines in front, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were polite and helpful. Walk 20m to a sandy beach and not much further to safe swimming. Although on the equator, the temps are mild and...

Thank you for your comment. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Sorry to hear about the disturbance from the soccer arena. The soccer arena next to the hotel is a public space in Puerto Villamil and not affiliated with Hotel Albemarle in any way.

We were staying at another high-end hotel but had no view. Albemarle was right down the beach and simply beautiful. We changed the next day and ended up with a beautiful room with a 180 degree of the beach. The management and staff were amazing. Breakfast was to write home abut too. Would definately stay here over any other place...
