If you're looking for a clean, friendly accommodation this is the spot. Yummy breakfast included with stay. The owners are very accommodating and helpful. If you don't mind a 5 minute walk to town and 10 minute walk to beaches this is a nice place to stay.

We stayed there for 3 nights in December. Communication was our main problem. The lodge sent someone to pick us up at the dock and we had not expected it. That was a pleasant start. Breakfast was excellent, though if you are in a hurry, you might need to let someone know. Breakfast is supposed to be 7:30-9, but they...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Although there were a few communication glitches, which we deeply regret, it's just great that you enjoyed your stay at Galapagos Eco Friendly. Just a word about the water: all of the water that we use, even in the sinks and shower, is purified and potable so there is never...

We have nothing but positive things to say about our stay at Galapagos Eco Friendly!

It broke my heart when your trip to Galapagos was delayed for reasons completely outside of your control and I would have done anything at all to make sure that you made up for lost time. Arranging for you to see as much as you could in the time you had was a priority for me. I'm just thrilled that...

We stayed on San Cristobal for 5 days at the end of our Ecuador Honeymoon. Harry and his wife were the greatest hosts we experienced during our trip.

We stayed here for two nights before departing on a cruise. Harry was a gracious host and very accommodating. The location was great - about a 10 minute walk in to town. It is at the top of a hill, so sometimes we took a cab ($1 USD) instead of walking back. The rooms are adjacent to a small courtyard...
