Stayed here 3 nights in september. The staff must be specially commended for helpfulness. A few of our party fell seriously sick from food posioning, and the young lady at the front desk dropped everything to walk them to the hospital. She then went and checked on them regularly, and even brought home made chicken soup ! As for the...

The hotel is not quite as luxurious as the website photos might appear, but still a wonderful place to stay. And if I had it to do over again, I would still stay there. The location is on the beach, right behind the main street and plaza in town (the town is not very big. Only 2000 people). None of...

We really enjoyed our stay here as the rooms were large and comfortable, the breakfast was varied and plentiful and the staff were friendly. The hotel is on the beach front so we spent some lovely evenings walking around the rocks searching for iguanas. The staff were friendly and helpful whenever we asked anything. There was free wifi in the...

The hotel has the benefit of being right opposite the beach across a sandy 'road', there are palm trees all around and the location is perfect. The square with restaurants is just behind the hotel. Bring lots of cash with you as there are no ATMs on the island and no banks. Only two restaurants take credit cards. The hotel...

Thank goodness for this hotel! It salvaged our time on Isabela. Before arriving, we had already organized lodging for the week. Unfortunately, that initial hotel was subpar…we had to leave after the first night. Walking around the dirt roads of Puerto Villamil, we wandered in to Hotel Albemarle. We had not expectations of getting an affordable room, but we were...

I will agree that it seems that new management has taken over the hotel and I found all the front desk staff cheerful and helpful (and spoke good English). I would rate their helpfulness at 5 stars. My big issue was with my room. I had paid extra to upgrade to a beachfront room but got a room on the...

We were fortunate to have ocean front room. Being able to sleep with the balcony open and hear the ocean all night is an amazing experience. The room was great. Caroline who picked us up from the airport was informative and very helpful. You are in walking distance of all of the restaurants and the beach is in front of...

So....first is you must be upstairs in this place. If you are downstairs you are literally on the road (which is sand in front of the beach) or you are walking into the very crowded area that breakfast is served from your front door. The pool was empty when we arrived and obviously had been for some time and no...

Dear windsurfer5230 Many thanks for you for your review & comments, they are very helpful for impoving our services and facilities. Regarding your comments about the empty pool, unfortunately this was due to the heavy rains which caused inconveniences with the purity of the water in the pool and did not allow us to offer this service, as the pool...

Walking distance to the beach, about 100 feet. Great staff and management always very attendant. Internet works ok, hey but you are in the Galapagos. Good food in the morning and many great restaurants feet's from you. Many local cuisines at very low prices. The Hotel accepts credit cards but not all establishments will. Cash is a must on this...

We stayed just one night, with two kids and we paid for a triple with a double bed a really good price considering the size of the room and the amenities. We stated in puerto Ayora on a not that nice hotel paying twice as much. I booked by phone a couple of days before and the staff was really...
