I am still in disbelief this can not be the same hotel that I read about in the MOON book on the Galapagos or the reviews I read on trip advisor. Staying at this hotel was more like camping to me. The shower heads were rigged up like something you would see on Gilligan's Island not kidding. The beds uncomfortable...

Nice hotel. Great location. Friendly staff. Close to sea lions and the harbor. Breakfast buffet. Laundry service available which is a plys after a seven day cruise. Would definitely go back. Great base for exploring San Cristobal and Kicker Rock.

Although location was good, room left lot to be desired. Plaster was peeling off the walls, mildew above bed where picture frame was. When asked if another room was available, was quickly told no other rooms available. Food was decent and view from eating area very nice. All in all, you could do better!
