Our room was fine and clean, facing the beach. It was quiet at night; we thought there would be noises outside since pedestrians walk right by our room. The breakfast was ample but not the greatest. The staff performed well. I just wonder why hotels in Galapagos do not provide any table clock. Worth a visit.

High ceilings, tile floors, glassed shower, firm beds, quiet A/C, loved the "drying room" on top of the building to hang up wet clothes. Lovely small pool in inner atrium, free wi-fi in small hotel lobby which always has a breeze blowing through. Delicious fresh and healthy breakfast. During a rainstorm a little water leaked in the balcony doors, forming...
