Galapagos Islands Hotel
Ranked #18 of 21 Hotels in Puerto Ayora
Reviewed 15 September 2015

The pictures look inviting, but do not reflect reality. Pool not kept well. Family owned hotel. Kids in hotel area. Teenagers somewhat helpful. Polite but noisy. From rooms you could hear all the noise from dining area. Wi Fi a joke. Could not connect from rooms. Staff not always available. Also goes by the name Galápagos Islands Hotel

Room Tip: There are no good rooms

This place is perfect if you want to relax from exploring the islands all day, the service is good and its a good place to meet other travelers.

The rooms were clean and the bed confy, will recommend the place with other travelers for sure.

Casa Natura, also known as Galapagos Island Hotel, has large rooms, comfy beds, but terrible air conditioning. This is not some backwater, but the most populous town in the Galapagos, and our time there was spent in an uncomfortable, stuffy room. Why advertise AC when there is nothing resembling it? The teenagers at the desk seemed supremely bored with our AC situation. The location is not so great either, being several blocks from the town center of Puerto Ayora. Wifi is also a joke.

Stayed three nights, rooms spotlessly clean, friendly staff with some english. Breakfast is fairly basic (and never ready at 7 in the morning). Pool had water that was not very inviting. Came to the hotel after dinner one night and wanted a beer, but could find no staff present..

If you are traveling to enjoy the nature and be relax... this is not the place. There was no one to control the people "kids" that were there, rooms were very basic, like a barn like. Doors were very cheap and TV old (Not LCD). I understand that you go to Galapagos not to be in the room, but when I go to my room I like peace and quiet.

Room Tip: No Internet or ATM, bring lots of cash.
