Client Rating for Galapagos Islands 5/5 from 106 reviews

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.
