Galapagos was fabulous. Haugan Cruises arranged this hotel and our tours. They did a great job with perfectly smooth transfers, tours, cruise to islands etc. Local tour company staff greeted us as the hotel, communicated details and tweaked arrangements. It couldn't have bee

Dear Karl S, Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. We are delighted to know you enjoyed your stay at the hotel, the restaurant, and the spaciousness of your room as well as its amenities. The Red Mangrove Hotel takes also good care of its surrounding environment, and welcomes the wildlife around which our guests love! Your feedback is very important to us and I'm glad to explain, at the moment we have a cable TV service which provides one channel in English, however have considered analyzing the options of cable TV available in Galapagos in order to change it to one that offers more channels in English if necessary. It has been a pleasure to serve you, and hope to host you sometime again in the future! Best Wishes, Red Mangrove Ecoluxury Hotel

Is this price per night per person or per room and is it inclusive of touring? Thank you. Shelley S.
The price is per room. They have different grades of rooms, but all are nice even if you don’t have a water view. Our rooms were booked part of our package with our tour company. We opted for high end hotels. Mind you that these aren’t “gorgeous” rooms like we have in the States, but they are very nice.

we would ike the suite mayor, is this available during our travel dates?
Dear Monica, My name is Katie, it is a pleasure to assist you. I would like to inform you that the Red Mangrove will now be operating under new management by Haugan Cruises. This change happened very recently and just today I gained access to the TripAdvisor listing to Red Mangrove, which is why someone is only now answering your question. We have two different types of rooms available. Those are the Suites and Superior rooms. The main difference is that the suites at the hotel offer ocean views, the standards do not. Please write to us with the updated email in our info section to confirm your reservation and to talk to our representative for further details about the rooms available during the dates you would like to travel. Have a great day! Katie Beckwith

I would like to know what the hotel's response was to the poster that showed pictures of ants on cauliflower, dead lizards and excrement in the room and the mud (?) on the window. I believe they were from Italy.
Hello, my name is Katie and I'd like to inform you that the Red Mangrove is now operating under new management by Haugan Cruises, a well-known luxury cruise operator in the Galapagos Islands. We've purchased the hotel and plan to make many changes to provide an excellent level of service that reflects the prices of the hotel. As for a response for what you are asking about, unfortunately this happened back in 2015 and we only began management this week of April 22, 2017. What we can say is that we can guarantee cleanliness, excellent food quality, and that the level of customer service will surpass any previous expectations known by Red Mangrove. It would be our pleasure to speak to you more if you are interested in staying at the Red Mangrove during your time in Galapagos. You can find the new and updated contact info in our listing. Have an excellent day! Red Mangrove by Haugan Cruises

Is there a laundry service nearby and not a hotel service that charges $2 for underwear?
We used the hotel to wash shoes and clothes after a very muddy volcano hike - they did a great job - can't believe the shoes came out so good. I am sure there are laundry facilities in town as it is a good sized town - just did not look.
