Mr. Alan Jones

"A very nice hotel with the added bonus of a pool. Not many hotels in Puerto Ayora have them. Large rooms with a hammock on the deck to relax in. The only downside was how expensive food and drink was. A two minute walk to the Angermeyer Waterfront Inn found the same food and drinks at exactly half the price. You can guess where we spent most of out time."

Kirsty Gomersal
"Absolutely lovely. Very clean and comfortable. Our only complaint was that beer was sold in 'stubbies' rather than in the litre bottles we'd got accustomed to! Gorgeous pool - and we loved the fact that there was a family of ducks that lived under one of the sunloungers. The staff didn't seem to mind in the slightest - even when cleaning the 'calling cards' that they did on a regular basis! We woke every morning to the sound of finches in the trees outside our room. They are so tame that they would come and sit on the hammock with you! There were some lovely touches like a congratulations card for our honeymoon. I wouldn't be put off by the fact the hotel is a little out of the way - it is only 30 seconds by water taxi from the main harbour. The hotel has its own boat you can use but it's only $1 to get a taxi. The only thing worth noting is that it's a 5 minute walk from the jetty to the hotel - whilst there is a beach right outside the hotel, the boats don't tend to use it."
