My husband and I in our late 29s visited the hotel in May 2016 . The hotel was very nice and clean, the people were very helpful and nice, breakfast was good. 10 min walk to the port. Only negative part was that the fridge and cooler were loud. The shower is a little tricky you regulate the temperature from...

As a family of five we were very disappointed by this accommodation. This was our last stop on our Galapagos adventure and this accommodation was poor (the worst of our trip). It is located amongst many unfinished buildings, right next to a road, and a five minute taxi ride from town. There is nothing attractive about this location. The rooms...

While most everyone spoke Spanish we were able to communicate with the staff. Everyone was great! the owner even made us breakfast at the crack of dawn before our flight. Great coffee and fantastic breakfasts! Cute pool for going for an afternoon dip. Was a bit of a walk to town, but easily do-able.

It is quite a bit above the main road but not very far to walk. If it is too far there are always taxis. They provide free bicycles which is great for getting around the island. The breakfast was OK but the room was very very nice. And it is also great to be able to plunge into the pool...

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Hotel is 10 minutes walk from the San Cristobal pier or $1 for taxi. The rooms are apartment style with large living area, bathroom and large bedroom. My room was comfortable and very clean. WiFi was effective notwithstanding the remote satellite access. I used wifi to send photos and make voice calls...

Although our room was large and clean, the staff attentive, though not much English was spoken, and the breakfast was very good, our two night stay at Pimampiro was disappointing because of its location. We stayed in mid-October when there were fewer tourists on San Cristobal making the hotel seem isolated and out of the way, five long blocks up...

Stayed here in a large group while on a service trip to Ecuador. Service was phenomenal, food at breakfast was great (always ate out in town for lunches and dinners), pool was well maintained and the rooms were spacious and comfortable with very good bathrooms. Not a waterfront location, but close enough you can just take a quick walk down...

Great hotel with amazing staff! Very attentive and caring. Breakfast was crazy good, served with one of the best hot chocolates I've ever had! Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are luxury for those used to the smaller cramped bathrooms found in most hostels. Location is good too, not too far from the beaches and local wildlife.

My family stayed at Pimampiro during our recent visit to the Galápagos. Right away we felt at home. It is located at the top of the hill overlooking the town, and has a great view of the ocean. It is all self contained with laundry, a restaurant, and a very refreshing pool that the kids put to good use. It...
