The Hotel merges luxury with environmental demands of "the Enchanted Islands". The architectural design combines modernity with the surrounding natural world.

Stylish and modern design hotel with a great feelgood factor. Very friendly and helpful owner/staff, great food (all day) and drinks. Very nice terrace to watch the sunset and have a drink. All in all a winning concept.

This hotel does it right, everything about my 4 night stay was perfect. The staff is great and very helpful with planning activities and things to do. The service level is outstanding. If you are not staying here on your Galapagos trip you’re missing out! The restaurant

My husband and I stayed at Golden Bay for three nights at the beginning of our honeymoon, and it was the perfect way to kick off our trip! The staff at Golden Bay was very polite and helpful. We also loved every meal at Golden Bay - the fish balls at the bar during happy hour

There are also shops close by that can help you book tours and trips. The day trips however are going to suck. Take a cruise. You can usually get them 1/2 off if you book them last minute on the islands.

Sure, this small town has about 5 good quality restaurants and maybe a dozen or two cafes and food outlets. The beaches are variously 10 minute walking to maybe 4 Km (2-3 miles) or alternatively a taxi ride away. Don't underestimate the heat here, so sun and sweat can become an issue! We found this hotel to have the best food in town. Boat trips are the best alternative to see local nice areas and wildlife!

Dear DaisyDot24, sorry that took us so long to answer your question. You don´t need a travel agency to arrange your trip to Galapagos everything can be done independently. You just have to make sure that you are arriving to the correct airport since there are two airports in the Islands Baltra and San Cristobal
