Pros: Very nice staff. The manager , Katia was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
Cons: Was too far out of town
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The garden around the property with the giant tortoises is creates a magic feeling of peace and quiet. With the few rooms and guests venturing out on day tours a retreat like feeling emerges.

Pros: Our stay at SV was remarkable and in every respect outstanding. The beds are comfortable, the rooms endearing and thoughtfully decorated, and the views completely accurate. The attention to detail is uncanny. We had lunch and dinner there during our stay and it was delicious, beautifully plated and actually Ecuadorian! The tortoises on site are breathtaking, the house dog Saba is so sweet, and Cattya and the SV team make every effort to make your stay a pure delight. Cattya is the best resource of all in all her contacts and wisdom, and I would encourage every guest not just to ask her questions and for her recommendations but also to get to know her as she is a wonderful person and it’s clear this work is her passion! Stay at SV and you won’t regret it!!!
Cons: There’s not a single thing to dislike about SV.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Luxurious stay right on the water. Beautiful rooms
Cons: Breakfast was ok but room for improvement
6.7 Good
Pros: pleasant room, nice outside furniture, excellent housekeeping
Cons: everything to do with the restaurant was below par. Untrained, uncoordinated personnel, talking to each other in loud voices/screaming until 2200 in the evening - bad for someone with room at the ground floor! Busy with each other, not with the (few) guests. Dinner low quality and overpriced: breakfast not at 5* level, and with chaotic service. In the week I was there, Management was invisible, with (restaurant and kitchen) staff clearly unsupervised.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Well organized clean hotel.Beautiful location !Helpful staff!

Pros: Nice and very clean facilities. Super helpful and friendly staff. If you book a room, do not forget to use that 'second key' to check out the view from the roof at sunset and/or sunrise if you are around then. Muy bien!
Cons: Pricey (for Galapagos). Plus, getting to facility from the port area by water taxi was an ordeal our first trip to check-in. We literally had to wait 45 minutes to get on a boat to travel 200 meters. Other times (per water taxi) were quicker.

6.3 Good
Pros: Bed and bath were nice Restaurant food and ambiance Service and workers good
Cons: First morning NO water pressure! Internet sketchy room ceiling cracked all the way across remote location price paid not worth the facility
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Good place t ostay - big and nice rooms with fireplace in it. Staff can make fire.
Cons: Breakfast was poor selection as for hotel of such class. Also dinner was quite expensive as for offered quality
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Royal Palms Hotel is in a stunning location in the highlands above Puerto Ayora - a $10 taxi ride from the port. The hotel sits on 500 hectares (over 1000) acres of lush fauna and is even more beautiful than its pictures portray. The entire staff - I mean everyone - is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is charming; all food is fresh, cooked to order, nicely plated and reasonable for a five star location. The grounds are unusually beautiful and fun to explore. They include the most interesting and extensive lava tunnel we visited during our stay on the Galapagos. The hotel provides a hard-hat and assigns a staff member to serve as your guide through the tunnel for an additional fee of five dollars. Our stay was principally for R & R after more than a week of extensive sightseeing throughout the archipelago. However, the hotel would gladly arrange daily or extended visits to other locations on the island, or by boat or plane, to the other islands. Christina Gonzalez, a hotel manager, was off-site when we visited, but had greatly facilitated our entire Galapagos experience prior to our arrival. In summary, the hotel is a gem.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Enjoyed our Preferred Guest upgrade from casitas to villas...especially the fireplace on a damp, rainy night. Our driver/waiter/jack of all trades Gustavo was terrific. The lava tunnels were very cool to see.
7.5 Good
Pros: It is a very upscale and classy resort and property, although the weather is basically cloudy and drizzly all day long. It is nice change from Puerto Ayora and closer to the airport, but perhaps not as convenient as one might think because it is remote. The food is very good but it is the only choice. Finally, there are no taxis nearby. The sales staff will offer hotel transfer for $46 per person. This is overpriced. I asked to cancel my transfer and was only offered half of my money back. I feel this is a little bit dishonest and in the long run may work against the hotel. I won't stay here again because Puerto Ayora is a better value. Do yourself a favor and do not book hotel to airport transfer in advance. Instead request a taxi which only cost $25 for up to four passengers. Water taxi is $1 pp and airport shuttle is $5 pp. Taxi option is a much better value. Likewise, do not book any tours in advance -- they are way, way overpriced. Buy your tour for tortoises + lava tunnels in Puerto Ayora for $50 for half day via taxi driver. No need to pay $140 PP for same tour. This is the only lodging in three Galapagos Islands that I do not recommend and endorse. The main problem is not the hotel staff and management. The problem is the dishonest sales staff. I'm unsure whether the owners are behind their policies, but I think they should understand that a 50% "cancellation penalty" and overcharging may ultimately harm their sales.
Cons: The sales staff will offer hotel transfer for $46 per person. This is overpriced. I asked to cancel my transfer and was only offered half of my money back. I feel this is a little bit dishonest.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing villa Nice area to sunbathe Great food Lovely staff Made to feel like an appreciated customer
Cons: Gym could do with updating
7.9 Good
Pros: The villa was great, the normal staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful.
Cons: They didn’t provide an invoice in time, thus I could not get a tax refund. The tours organized by the hotel are just a tourist ripoff. The location is very far away from everything one could visit.
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff was wonderful. Really accommodating and it felt like they really cared. The amount of space in the rooms were great.
Cons: It seems mostly empty of guests. The food is mediocre. The rooms smell of mildew and have mildew on the curtains.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was great. If you like to be in town then this hotel is not for you. It is a short taxi to the closes town but the property is awesome and quiet. Great to have quiet after a long tour on the islands. The staff is great! We booked a tour through another venue, the hotel staff called them to make sure we were taken care of. I forgot to arrange pick up but the hotel staff sent a car to pick up the family without me asking them to, just great attention to detail. The staff walks you to your room to insure every thing is perfect. Day one our AC went out so they upgraded us moved luggage into new room. I travel a lot for my job and rarely have a seen such attention from a hotel staff. Thank you for making a wonderful trip that much better. We will return.
Cons: I liked everything.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location!!! Very close to restarting a, ATM, Charles Darwin Research Centre, next door to fish market, shops, everything. The location was key. The place itself was very clean and lovely ocean view balconies. The staff were all very very nice and wanted to make sure that we were happy. Delicious breakfast but we were among able to enjoy it one day because the ferries to other islands leave so early and the breakfast was not yet served.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: This Hotel is way overpriced at $300/night. There are many nicer hotels in Puerto Arroya at $100. The place is falling apart with broken things everywhere. The staff is not nice. The pool is never cleaned and full of guano from the birds. My room: no hot water, broken toilet, broken furniture etc. I think they are cheating on the good ratings. Never would recommend to anyone to stay here
5.8 Okay
Pros: Excellent location in Puerto Ayora, on the main street, just steps away from from the fish market and a short walk from the pier. Nice view of the sea from the restaurant and the breakfast area, with birds and iguanas coming right up next to guests.
Cons: Did not meet expectations for the price paid, especially compared to other hotels in town. Room facilities were outdated and better cleanliness was expected particularly in the bathroom area.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, convenient, and good staff
Cons: Hot tub never got hot, and the pool was freezing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was delicious and the ocean view is stunning!
Cons: Everything was great!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Just for starters. The Front desk was amazing and received us with complimentary cold towels and orange juice on a very hot day. The room was exactly as pictured and expected. Wedy and Al-Pacino the Seals at the front pool were a huge shock and awe factor. Restaurant and bar attendees were awesome people. Drinks at the Jacuzzi out front, pool cleaned almost every night. An actually good breakfast. It smelled amazing after room service. Hot water, AC was cold when needed. Extremely helpful front desk clecks with taxis and hints. Will 100% recommend and stay again asap!
Cons: Nothing I did not like. Maybe, slightly the early 10am checkout but the front desk gave us an extra 30minutes to get ready. Genuinely good people.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: the breakfast was absolutely delicious and had much to choose from! The location was central and perfect to reach any location from the hotel at minimal walking distance. Being on the main road maid taxi access flawlessly easy.
Cons: The wifi was quite slow. The entire island had slower wifi also, but a few restaurants we went to had wonderful wifi. It also wasn't working for the first 6 hours of our stay but the staff worked tirelessly to get it back and running. minor complication really.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Upon arrival, the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and pleasant! I was offered a towel for outdoor activities because I arrived before check-in hours (which was nice because a lot of hotels/hostels actually prohibit their towels being used outside of the hotel). I was handed a fruity drink in a champagne glass & a chilled, scented spa towel! By far, Best treatment I received in Ecuador! The room was absolutely beautiful and quiet. Everything worked great. There were limited complimentary snacks & drinks for the ocean view rooms, which I found convenient. What I found funny was that on one pack of the snacks, they left the price sticker on it & it was like 45 cents but the hotel charges $3 for any extra snacks. The shower and hot water worked great. WiFi is Island wifi so not much anyone can do about that. The restaurant staff were accommodating; not very sociable, but nice. The reason I didn’t give this rating a 10/10 is because the pool was dirty, looked crystal clear & blue till I got into the pool itself. TONS of huge questionable white specks floating around, lots of dead bugs & other floaties. Also, after I checked in, I saw that the bathroom trash had not been changed from the previous folks who occupied the room. I was just there for 2 days so I didn’t care to bother reception with changing it, but sanitation considered, it’s not appealing.

Cons: Rooms are small and need update! Lots of construction in the yard
8.0 Excellent
Pros: I like the pool at sunset they turn the lights on and looks pretty; we didn’t use it but nice to see when we arrived. I liked that the staff was so nice they printed a map and gave us recommendations of how to organise the day with the ideas we wanted. They called taxi for us. It was only 5-6-7 min walking to the main port (depending on how fast you walk). The hotel has lots of colourful flowers and adds a vibrant vibe. We needed to leave by 6:30 which is breakfast time but they take around 10-15min so they offered a lunch box which contained toast, waffle, fruit and juice and that was very helpful and tasty. (Not plain bread like other hotels)
Cons: There were no toiletries in the bathroom. A bit pricey (127 for a small double) for not being in the sea front but I think it’s just the island that is more pricey tan cristobal for example.

Pros: Very accommodating receptionist. Let us check in early as the room was available.

7.9 Good
Pros: It is a good value considering the limited choices in Puerto Ayora and that the hotel is newer than most.

Rooms were very nice and spacious. Bathroom also spacious and nice. Very friendly hosts!! You can get beach towels, and you can fill up your water bottle at the reception.
Cons: Breakfast was good but could be a bit more diverse. There was a small kitchen in our room (microwave and cooking plate), but no cutlery neither glasses, plates, kitchen utensils, pots, ... Didn't need it so didn't ask for it either (this is just FYI).
7.5 Good
Pros: The apartment with the kitchen is dated and needs work but the other room that we stayed in was very nice. Their cheapest price rooms are tiny! The staff were great and helped out with whatever we needed. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. Thank you Diego.
Cons: The place needs updating and for the amount it charges, I think one expects more.
7.9 Good

Pros: The suites are comfortable enough - the beds were comfy, the sheets clean (and changed regularly), and the AC worked in both rooms. The main room and kitchen weren't much to look at - very functional, but the furniture and decorating was pretty bland. The kitchen has the bare necessities to cook, but nothing more. The hotel has a wonderful breakfast from 7-8 each morning (perfect for us with kids as we get up early!). It included eggs, a starch (sometimes potatoes, sometimes yuca), bread, fruit, juice, and coffee. There is a supermarket by the port where we bought snacks and the makings of a few lunches. The staff at the hotel was amazingly accommodating. Our baby needs dark to sleep, so the staff changed out the curtains in one room to darker ones that blocked the light more. There are beach towels available for use and they even loaned us a beach umbrella to use for a day. The hotel is on the outer edge of the town, but for us as a family with young kids, it was nice and quiet. Plus, it actually made finding a taxi easier - you weren't having to compete with anyone for a ride as you do the closer you get to town, so we almost never had to wait to find a ride. Wonderful, friendly little hotel and a great price for the room!
9.7 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and attentive to patrons, generous breakfast.
Cons: For me, no faults. It's location is on the NE side of town, away from the noise of lots of tourists yet just a 10 minute walk or taxi gets one to the center of the city.
7.0 Good
Pros: Helpful, friendly staff. Clean water cooler every floor.
7.1 Good
Pros: The breakfast was good. They were receptive to my needs as a vegetarian. We were located in away from the tourist area with the locals and I had a ton of opportunities to practice my Spanish. I highly recommend staying if you are at least an intermediate speaker and take part in the excellent and affordable eating options and shopping nearby. The local culture life is amazing and worth the effort to get past any language barriers.
Cons: The owner and the staff DO NOT speak English. I got by with my muddled Spanish but it was very difficult at times to communicate. For most things, I did not mind but there were a few things I desperately wanted to convey I was not able and she nor anyone else there could tell me important info I needed to know because of the language barrier. The street was also loud and brightly lit, not for light sleepers but loads of fun to observe from the amazing rooftop lounge.
7.1 Good
Pros: Breakfast was adequate and set us up for the day, fresh juice, eggs, pastries, fruit and good coffee. Great eating breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Nice happy and polite staff every morning. The owner was very helpful and even stored our suitcase whilst we journeyed onto other islands before returning. Very close to the edge of the wilderness and up with the local people.
Cons: We could hear every outside noise. Breakfast only served between 7am and 8am. We do however realise that Galapagos people awake very early to begin the day. There was quite a lot of rubbish dumped on the verge opposite the hotel which spoilt the view.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: All good location good
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room is very clean and cozy with all the complete facilities like a hotel room with air condition and tv. The beds are super comfortable. The toilet and bathroom are very clean with hot shower and toiletries. The lady owner is very friendly and easy to talk with. There are panaderia, shops and restaurants near the hostel.
Cons: The location is a little far from the main street or center or from the famous Tortuga beach.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: I really liked this place! The room was really good and very comfortable. There was cleaning every day. There is a place to sit outside of the room, which was good. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Location was very good as well - up to 5 minutes to a see market and 10-15 minutes to the pier.
Cons: I liked everything!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property itself feels like a little oasis from the relatively busy 'city.' Upon walking in the front gate, you are in a courtyard which has a peaceful garden, 3 comfortable hammocks in which to rest and plenty of other sitting areas. The activity at this property feels like the perfect amount of quiet with just the right bit of life. At night, there were sweet twinkling lights, making the outdoor space inviting even in the evening! The family that owns Lava House is lovely, always someone around willing to help. The cook/cleaner is very sweet as well. The rooms were cleaned daily, beds comfortable, shower water pressure good and plenty of space to spread out a bit. Breakfast was in the 'main house' and was served buffet stye, although eggs were sometimes brought straight to the table. There was hot coffee and juice, fresh local bread, eggs, cheese, meat, granola, homemade yogurt and fruit. The tables were already set when you arrived and it was an extremely pleasant spot to sit and chat and prep for the day! I honestly could not say enough good things about Lava House! We have been traveling for about a year as a family and if every city had a Lava House, I wouldn't complain. If you need a home base for Santa Cruz, this should be it!
Cons: Not a thing -- loved everything.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lava House is an excellent place to stay on Santa Cruz. It is in a great quiet location not far from town. Isabella and her family (and Cesar) are very friendly and helpful. We had a group of 22 and she was able to accommodate us. To use a credit card, there is an additional 10% fee to be paid in cash.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Nice breakfast, loved the family atmosphere in this place
7.5 Good
Pros: Our room was really big with four beds (not necessary), WiFi and breakfast was okay- nothing special.
Cons: Our room was next to the street and next to the facility - or storeroom so it was really noisy most of the time. Furthermore they have a building site at the moment so the noise starts early in the morning- so no silence at all. For this price - no way (especially at the moment... maybe in an other room its better)
7.9 Good
Pros: The staff are wonderful. Very helpful & all around great! They help you set up drivers and tours and are so warm and welcoming. We loved being there!
Cons: The shower is either freezing or scalding hot.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good location, good breakfast with granola, plain yoghurt, and some fruit. Owner is very kind and sweet, though she does not speak much English. But there are usually others around who can translate. Or you can use google translate. Relaxing environment and good vibe. Good air conditioning. Laundry facility is close by if you want to take in your laundry. I brought it in about 5pm and it was ready the next day at 5pm.
Cons: On the first night the air conditioner was a little loud, but she switched me to another room, which was nice. My room could use a tray to put soap and shampoo, but not a big deal. Not much counter space in bathroom.

Pros: Fresh look at the hotel and it was a pretty place. Breakfast was simple but it works. A nice pool. I liked the location away from the main area where people walked, drived and bicycled. Still some noice from cars and dogs.
Cons: Let's just say it. The prices in Galapagos is high and the quality for hotels doesn't meet the price range. But for Galapagos this is kinda budget option hotel. I will say this is something between a hotel and hostel. The WiFi in Galapagos in general is bad and also the line at this hotel was not the best.

9.2 Excellent

Cons: WiFi was not very good. Most of the time only working at the reception.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Free drinking water and coffee. Nice place to have rest near the pool. Room was really big. Good air conditioning.
Cons: Pool closes too early, can't use it. Poor breakfast. Dirty spot on a blanket. There is gym nearby which produces a lot of noise in the evening, closes after 21:30. Slow Internet, looks like it is provided by turtles from the Darwin center :)
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I had a delightful experience at Verde Azul from the moment Gabby (sp?) welcomed me through the door. They were incredibly accommodating, even helping me with an impromptu grab and go breakfast on morning when I had a too-early tour. Breakfast was also made to order instead of cold eggs in a buffet. The decor is a little dated, but one does not go to the Galapagos to sit in the hotel.

Pros: Nice room, cool little dunk pool
Cons: Nil

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Luxurious stay right on the water. Beautiful rooms
Cons: Breakfast was ok but room for improvement
6.7 Good
Pros: pleasant room, nice outside furniture, excellent housekeeping
Cons: everything to do with the restaurant was below par. Untrained, uncoordinated personnel, talking to each other in loud voices/screaming until 2200 in the evening - bad for someone with room at the ground floor! Busy with each other, not with the (few) guests. Dinner low quality and overpriced: breakfast not at 5* level, and with chaotic service. In the week I was there, Management was invisible, with (restaurant and kitchen) staff clearly unsupervised.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice and very clean facilities. Super helpful and friendly staff. If you book a room, do not forget to use that 'second key' to check out the view from the roof at sunset and/or sunrise if you are around then. Muy bien!
Cons: Pricey (for Galapagos). Plus, getting to facility from the port area by water taxi was an ordeal our first trip to check-in. We literally had to wait 45 minutes to get on a boat to travel 200 meters. Other times (per water taxi) were quicker.

Pros: Very nice staff. The manager , Katia was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
Cons: Was too far out of town
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The garden around the property with the giant tortoises is creates a magic feeling of peace and quiet. With the few rooms and guests venturing out on day tours a retreat like feeling emerges. The care of the staff adds to this and makes one wonder how quick the time passes while doing nothing just observing the passing clouds and the birds and turtles.

Pros: Our stay at SV was remarkable and in every respect outstanding. The beds are comfortable, the rooms endearing and thoughtfully decorated, and the views completely accurate. The attention to detail is uncanny. We had lunch and dinner there during our stay and it was delicious, beautifully plated and actually Ecuadorian! The tortoises on site are breathtaking, the house dog Saba is so sweet, and Cattya and the SV team make every effort to make your stay a pure delight. Cattya is the best resource of all in all her contacts and wisdom, and I would encourage every guest not just to ask her questions and for her recommendations but also to get to know her as she is a wonderful person and it’s clear this work is her passion! Stay at SV and you won’t regret it!!!
Cons: There’s not a single thing to dislike about SV.

Pros: Location right on the water is the point to this place. Cozy up to sea lions and iguanas as you have a cocktail on the deck. The property feels interwoven with the vegetation and rocks which is cool.
Cons: Due to the window and floor layout, our bathroom got little ventilation which led to a bit of a mildew smell.
