Holiday review by Mr. Richard Adams

Date of trip: 23/01/2020
Number of people: 2
Country: Ecuador

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Good"
Guides: "Mainland guide (and driver) 5 star. Or even 5 star +++ Galapagos guide 2 star"


Bellavista Cloud Forest Lodge
Great location for birding. Rooms getting a bit faded and need attention. Some excursions easier to access from Mindo
Hacienda Abraspungo
Lovely place and well situated. So helpful.
Patio Andaluz
Great location. Just spoilt a bit by other stupid tourists, but you cannot legislate for that.
Termas Papallacta
Although food was very much on the school canteen level and did not fit with the level of accommodation.
Hotel Oro Verde
Super hotel, but waiting for the surrounding area to be upgraded, so it is not well situated yet.
Hotel Albemarle
Nothing posh, but comfortable, clean and well situated on the beach

Our Memories

"The birding in the Mindo area. Views of mountains, forests and volcanoes (everywhere!) Galapagos wildlife - even the sea lion which was sitting on the bench that I wanted to use! "
