4/10 Fair

Very small room. Poor WiFi. Price too high. Very very basic. No TV.

Simple and Comfortable with Beautiful People
Wonderful! Elizabeth and their family were so kind, the homemade breakfasts in the center garden were lovely. Don't come here expecting hotel branded, plastic wrapped, toiletries with items to buy- remember why you came to visit the island. Simple, minimal, needs met with fridge, air conditioning, private room and bathroom, with a 5 minute walk to the beach. Loved my stay!!!

6/10 Good

Decent hotel on Isabela. Breakfast does take a while to be served so remember to account for that in the morning (food is good though!).

Clean and charming!
Had a great stay! The hotel was clean and charming. There was hot showers, hammocks, free wifi, and the free breakfast was huge. The family that ran the place was very sweet and I would stay here again. About a 5 min walk to the beach and you can rent a bike dirt cheep and ride to the national park in 10 min or 10 min bike ride to the turtle center. Something to know: There is no ATM on Isabella Island and pretty much everywhere is cash only so make sure to bring cash.

Lovely place to stay.
We stayed 2 nights here. It's a lovely place to stay. Our room was a nice size with a double and single bed. Bathroom had a huge shower with plenty of hot water and was very clean. The staff were lovely, limited English but we managed and they served a beautiful breakfast in the garden of fresh fruit & eggs, tea/coffee. We can't fault this place at all. Great place to stay.

8/10 Very good

海岸線から5分ほど入ったところで、スーパーやレストランが周りにあり寂しい場所ではありません。 家族経営でほぽスペイン語しか話せませんが、何かと気遣ってくれます。 チェックイン、チェックアウトも船の時間に合わせてくれます。

Cheap and nice hostal
Good Hostal when considering the price per night. No wifi in the room, only in the reception. Good breakfast in nice backyard. A bit noisy at night due to a cockerel nearby. Great and friendly staff.

8/10 Very good

ガラパゴスペンギンに会いたくて、2泊しました。 チェックイン時からスタッフの対応がとても親切で、その場でツアー予約もしてくれました。 街の中にあり、行動するにもとても便利な場所です。 天気が良い日は開放感のある中庭で朝食をとることができ、のんびりするには絶好の場所だなと思いました。

Rummen helt okej, saknade skåp att hänga upp kläder i. Sedan var det mycket tuppar som störde på morgonen då bakgården var en hönsgård.

isabela island
Bodde här under vistelse på isabela, rummet helt okej, nära till allt, trevlig personal. Jämfört med andra frukostar i Ecuador så var väl den här bäst. Banan, papaya, två bröd, kaffe, juice, annanas,stekt ägg, skinka, ost, marmelad och smör.
