Score from 35 reviews Very good
The room was nice and location wasn't too bad.
Stay alert when going through the payment. According to Booking.com the room would cost $50 per night. However as I was not present when the payment took place Sebastian the owner "kindly" charged my mum an extra $10 for each night, making service and tax higher as well. Do not book any boat trips or activities through him either as it will also cost you more.
The owners are very nice people,available to help if you need. ( and they lent me a bike ! ) I definetely recomend El Bambu Galapagos.
Friendly staff, gave us a welcome coca cola, a great booklet on what to do in the islands, and helped us plan our days in Santa Cruz. Bright clean rooms. 5 min walk to waterfront. Would recommend.
El Bambu was in an awesome location. It's really close to the start of the path to Tartuga Bay. It's a short walk to El Malecon and the main street of Darwin as well as the kiosks/food street and a little market with good empanadas. The hosts were really helpful in helping us plan our short stay and in setting things up for us like day trips around Santa Cruz, and even letting us use their bikes. The room was really nice, clean and has air conditioning. I'd stay there again.
Nice and clean place. Spacious rooms.
The hotel is right on a park which is lovely and a nice setting. However, on Friday and Saturday nights a group of young people spent all night long talking, drinking and yelling in that park so that we didn't get any sleep at all. We would have appreciated if the owners who live on-site could have been pro-active in quieting the group so that we could sleep.
It is like a mini apartment, and the owner are great, very helpful and the gave us bicycle X rent.
The bed was a bit small for two people, it looked more as a full then a queen
The owners, the room, having a refrigerator, the a/c, hot showers (mostly). The Galapagos - there are tours and interesting places within walking distance on Santa Cruz and a few day trips to other islands. The $1 taxi fare to anywhere in the town.
No meals available (though it is a short walk to get something). The fact that I had to direct so many taxi drivers to the place. Failure of pickups by various tour operators.
Tidy and quiet rooms. Helpful owners.We extended due to illness and we were accomodated at once.
A bit of a walk to the center, but I will trade it for the quietness of the surrounding. No breakfast, but then we can grab cheap breakfast 5 mins. Walk from the place.
Ok it was not as expensive as some of the other places I looked at online but there is a trade off
The room was cheesy,there was no closet or even a drawer to put clothes in. The door was so thin you could hear all the noises going on around you. My daughter and I decided to find another place to stay while we were in Puerto Ayora. I would not recommend this place.
Friendly and helpful staff
Room was too expensive for what it was, needs curtains and there was a hole in our window for the air conditioning pipe- allowing mosquitoes to come inside the room. Lastly you could hear noise from the air conditioning engine box from outside all night.
clean and comfortable bed
charge service fee, only one small mirror in bathroom, super slow internet
The location was very good, 5 to 10 minutes walk from the town's center. The room was spacious, the aircon and wifi worked very well all the time in the room. The "balcony" was in the front of rooms's entry, we used the place for our morning breakfast.
The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. On the day we arrived they moved us to another room which had a fridge (my husband likes to keep his beers cold!). It was meant to be more money but they did not charge us any extra. Also they helped us by buying our boat tickets to San Cristobal (we don't speak much Spainish) for us. The customer service was exceptional. The room was lovely, big bed, small kitchen area and breakfast bar plus a small outside area. And very quiet!
Breakfast was not included in the rate.
We really enjoyed our stay at the El Bambú Galapagos Inn in Puerto Ayora on the Island of Santa Cruz. This is a newly opened place on the west edge of town in a quiet neighborhood, but within a 5 minute walk to the Main Street and about 10 minutes to the docks. The rooms are very clean with their their own personalities and are not the standard, boring hotel room. Carol, one of the owners, is very nice and helpful and always was making sure that we were enjoying our stay. We highly recommend the El Bambú Galapagos Inn.
Quiet area. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff, nice gesture to offer cold refreshment upon arrival. Although it's a 10-15 min walk to the port area/town centre, it is a quiet and nice walk through town, and we felt safe all the time. Close to the Tortuga Bay path entrance.
our experience in this hotel was excellent, the owners where very friendly and always wanted to help us to have a great time. our room was located in the back of the hotel, down stairs which allowed us to keep our privacy. the hotel is located a little far from the main street but it isn't a problem actually, in fact it was good, 'cause you can see the other side of santa cruz, not so touristic.
