  • 10.0.Exceptional

    During our visit to the Galapagos Islands we stayed in multiple hotels in Puerto Ayora, San Cristobal, and Isabella. We stayed at Hotel Cucave when we first arrived and again before departing. Of all the hotels we visited, Hotel Cucave was by far the cleanest, most comfortable, and friendly. (Not to mention the breakfast, which was truly outstanding.) The service at this hotel is top-notch. I have stayed at hotels all over the world and I am hard-pressed to think of another stay as enjoyable as Hotel Cucave. You will not regret staying here!

    Everyone should be aware of the Bizarre 9am checkout policy. Very unfortunate. At a minimum they should have a changing area with a shower if they insist on a 9am checkout.

    What an amazing stay. The room was immaculate, and every time I walked in I was greeted by name. Any time I needed anything, the staff made it happen. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel, staff, or service! It was also conveniently located, and on the kiosko street, so dinner was just a short stroll away!

    Very helpful and professional staff!

    We loved our stay here! Hotel staff was very friendly and professional. They went out of their way to make sure everything was comfortable and helped us to plan out our activities. Even after we checked out they let us store our luggage and gave us recommendations for lunch and activities before our afternoon ferry.

Both Anna’s were extremely helpful and kind !! We travelled with two teens and 10 y.o old, so they went beyond to make sure our stay is pleasant. Great place!
