We went to the Red Mangrove several times during our stay in Puerto Ayora, because it is an amazing place for wildlife viewing whilst having happy hour cocktails in the late afternoon. We saw sea lions, iguanas, pelicans hunting, boobies, herons, and much more.

We did the 8 day experience and had a nice experience. The food at the lodge's restaurant was great. Fernando the manager went out of his way to work with us and our schedule and needs and we were very thankful for that. Definitely the best place to stay on the island.

Our family of 4 got a quad room that was super nice. We loved the animals we saw daily when we ate. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed staying at the Lodge.

This is one of the better looking hotels in the area when browsing for alternatives, with some frequent guest that don't mind going to the bathroom anywhere in the boardwalk and it might not be cleaned for a while. The hotel is nested in between mangroves so you will have to deal with the smell in some parts of the...

A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst in the Galapagos. It is a fantastic hotel in a wonderful location. Our ground floor twin room faced the hotel deck and sea and sea lions, pelicans and iguanas were there all the time. The room and bathroom could not be faulted and the food was excellent.

Right on the waterfront. With sea lions, iguana and many birds right there on the patio. Tasty but rather expensive restaurant but plenty of other options close by. Handy for shopping and water taxis to all tour options

The hotel is in Puerto Ayora on the Island of Santa Cruz which is central and very convenient when traveling in the Galapagos Islands. It is next to the Darwin Research Center so you can walk to one of the sites you'll want to see. The hotel is beautifully sited on the water and offers gorgeous views. It is set...

The Hotel has a Decking verandah that is a must place to sit and watch the Sea and sea life. There are Marine Iguanas everywhere and an area foe sea lions to rest during the day. The biggest problem we had was the Hotel kept running out of Drinks including Beer, Wine, Coca Cola, Gin and brandy!! It reminded us...

We spent several days here during our honeymoon and were disappointed by what we got for the extravagant price that we paid. The hotel is clean and the staff and service are helpful, but the rooms are plain, dated, and small. Even when you consider that everything in the Galapagos is generally quite expensive, this hotel was still bad value...
