Althought the room was average it was on the back of the Hotel then we didn't have view to the ocean , but the worst thing is we requested to have a trip from Villamil to Puerto Ayora, and we almost missed the boat, and later we had a plane flight to Quito. Service is no part of this Hotel...

I rarely write a bad review and I consider writing one a big responsibility - it is after all peoples businesses and livelihoods you are dealing with but there is no way I can recommend this group to anyone. What I didn't realise when I booked is that RedMangrove is a chain with a number of properties. Where you end...

My wife and I recently visited there and were both very impressed with the property and its proximity to town and it was steps from the beach .The rooms were minimalistic but clean and well taken care of. But what really made the visit special was two young men that were interning from Chile, their names are Gonzalo Huerta and...

We had a great time at the Isabela Lodge. We got the all inclusive package which included an English speaking guide, all of our meals, and the best excursions. Our guide, Eduardo absolutely made the trip for us. He knew so much, and took care of everything. the location of the hotel is really the best you can get. It...

There are really only two things that you require from an all-inclusive holiday 'hotel'....a good bedroom and bathroom, and three good meals each day. This hotel, the Red Mangrove Isabela Lodge, is like a youth hostel, but with the rooms better and the food worse. The bed was actually relatively comfortable, but absolutely nothing worked properly in the bathroom...the taps...

Great choice for staying in Isabela. We had a great rate, and the hotel lived up to our expectations. The location is unbeatable in Isabela. Close to the pier, close to the restaurants, bars, etc. And the beach right in front of the Hotel is just amazing! We even had the chance to swim with sea lions right in front...

Our experience at the Red Mangrove could not have been better. Everything was fantastic. The hotel rooms were beautifully furnished, spotlessly cleaned, comfortable and air conditioned. The location was on the beach. The food was great. The morning brought a variety of fresh fruit, eggs, ham, toast and other items with juices and excellent coffee. The evening meals were of...

I booked 2 nights at the lodge along with 4 at their Santa Cruz location. Although, it wasn't as nice as the Santa Cruz hotel, it was still a great place to stay. The two towns were different too. The tours provided were awesome along with the dining and staff. There is an awesome view of the beachfront and by...

The hotel is nice enough: good location, friendly staff, nice rooms, but they take advantage of travelers when selling them activities. The hotel will send you an email ahead of your trip encouraging you to book activities through them. They charge outrages prices. 3 times the going rate in town for the same trip. They might tell you that the...

We spent three nights here as part of an eight-day Galapagos tour we book through ROW Adventures in the USA and loved it. The location is perfect – right on the beach and an easy walk into Puerto Villamil. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet, the food was excellent and varied (the sesame-encrusted tuna appetizer was my favorite) and...
