    Very quiet and pleasant property. Our son loved the pool and we enjoyed our daily chat with the owner. She feels like a mum to all guests and has a wealth of knowledge.

    Amazing

    We had the best time ever in this castle. It is a quiet paradise but a 5 minute walk to the main street with all the restaurants and shops. I want to go back so bad!! Gianna is great host and I highly recommend this place. One of the best hotels I've ever been to!!

    Gianna and Roberto are the best hosts ever, extremely welcoming, knowledgeable and genuinely helpful and wanting to help make their guests stay in the Galapagos a great experience! Our room and the rest of the facilities was super clean, comfortable and we had extra balcony space we didn’t even expect, and the pool is so pleasant after the days activities and heat. Breakfast was good and coffee excellent, and they kindly adapted to a food allergy in our party. Highly recommended!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good location and quiet spot. The landlords are very friendly and helpful with good advice. Nice breakfast and made sure I had bread I can eat as part of my dietary needs. It is small and close quaters but confirtable. I was the only one there so might be different when full. I was very pleased with friendliness of the landlords. They do sell there boat trip to you too. I went and it was good and saw lots of marine life despite the weather. Had to ask for a drink though even when included. I did a lot thanks to them and very pleased. Very good.

    Happy in Galapogos

    Gianna and Roberto were very good hosts and the property was very unique. Its really just a 3 star small hotel made to look like a little castle. The pool was a nice place to jump into after touring all day .Breakfast was adequate and the grounds are a welcoming clean compound .It is not close to the pier , and the walk became tedious after 4 days . A cab ride was only 2 dollars so we could have done that. I would recommend the hotel for its one of a kind construction and great hosts

    Jack hammers and earth movers

    The next morning after our arrival we were woken by construction noise. We couldn’t stay in our room it was unbearably noisy it was like being in the middle of a construction site. The whole building shook. We went out again and figured by 6:30pm the noise would have stopped but it didn’t. The taxi couldn’t drop us outside the hotel because the road had been taped off. Instead the taxi driver told us to climb the gigantic deep ditch the construction machinery had made. This was so dangerous. We refused. It was dangerous to re-enter the hotel as the construction continued so close to the entrance. It was so noisy and none of the crew had ear protection. We asked the owner on our return when the construction would finish he said he didn’t know. I asked if we could be moved to another room. He said that was not possible yet on the website rooms were available to be booked. We said we’d like a refund and wanted to move to another hotel. The owner said I should cancel our booking/ only our booking was non refundable. Later the owner said it would finish at 8pm. At 8:45 I pointed out the rock hammer machine was still operating and he admitted he’d been supplying the crew with electricity. At 9:00pm road construction concluded. An unnecessarily unpleasant start to our trip to the beautiful Galapagos.

    Great and Unusual Place to Stay

    The hotel is on the edge of town, but you can easily walk to the Darwin Station, the good restarants and coffee houses and the fish market and harbor. Our host was very helpful with suggestions on activities, how to structure our 5 days there and arranged for our departure from the Baltra airport, including sightseeing on the way. The pool is a great amenity. Breakfasts were plentiful and we were very comfortable.

    This is a unique little hotel located in a neighborhood mixed with some residents’ homes and a few hotels. It’s less than a 10 minute walk to the main drag, Charles Darwin Ave. The hosts are lovely people who make you feel welcome and go out of their way to offer advice on the best things to see and how to get around. I stayed in a very budget-friendly room which was very clean and had everything I need. I highly recommend!
