Mercer Island, Washington
Reviewed 2 January 2016

A laid back yet very professional and exquisite hotel to truly allow yourself enjoy one of the best beaches and islands in the world. As everyone says Isabella is the island to stay at for the true Galapagos experience and with downtown only minutes away Iguana crossing puts you in the best place to experience the whole thing.

We spent 3 days here, a marvellous end to our Galapagos holiday following a 7-day cruise. The hotel was wonderful. It looks out onto a beautiful beach, which you can walk for miles. To its side is a great lagoon (ignore any reviews that complain about it.....this is raw native Galapagos habitat that allows all the wonderful creatures we come...

I was told that I had to pay the deposit for my room straight away because they had other interested people (I booked in September 2015 for 28 December 2016 to January 1, 2017). I had to pay a 50% deposit, which was USD 702.72. It was supposed to be a birthday surprise for my mother's 60th; I then found...

It is a a shame that some people have to go to the extend of lying in orther to get revenged......... the fact is , that it was not the establishments fault, that the process of reembursing the money took longer than expected, because it had to go thru the creditcard , but the client got there money back .......

Galapagos is an enchanting and unique place to visit. Isabella Island is arguably the best of all islands; this hotel combines all that with luxury, at prices that are fairly low (in comparison to European prices). Although it is not a good idea to visit the Galapagos simply to stay in a hotel, this is one that you could easily...
