I would like to give this place a glowing recommendation, but there were a few things about it that keep me from giving it five stars (actually, I would give it 3.5 stars but that isn't an option). We originally planned to stay at the Albemarle but we were steered away because our stay coincided with "Carnival" which was right...

We stayed 5 nights on Isabella and 5 nights on Santa Cruz and did not do a liveaboard boat cruise. THis worked very well for us as it gave us much more independence. The hotel is located at the edge of town (village really) and is only 2-5 minutes walk from the local bars and restaurants. Isabella is a laid-back...

This hotel is great - especially for couples going on a romantic trip. Its right by the beach, has a great pool and service is exceptional. The hotel also does a great job of organizing all daily trips/plans if you need it.

I think when I first arrived I was taken aback on how lovely the location & view this hotel has. Even checking their website prior to booking, I was pleasantly surprised.

This hotel was perfectly located where the Iguanas cross to the ocean and flamingos feed in a quiet pond steps away. The rooms are large and the baths modern. The beach across the road is miles and miles of unspoiled sand with very few people. The food at lunch was spectacular. Dinner and breakfast were fine but nothing special. Nice...
