+ Well located + Nice rooms with all facilities + Chilling atmosphere + Comfortable hammocks right outside the room +Great welcome and super friendly host
As soon as you walk on the premises you can tell that the property is well taking care of. Isabela was very kind, and very attentive to my needs and since the beginning of my stay, helped me with getting to know important things about Santa Cruz. The rooms were immaculate and modern. Lava House is walking distance to the main street though secluded enough to be peaceful and quiet.
kindly staff breakfast quality of sleep
location but with taxi, it is easy
The hotel was very clean, and is reasonably priced for the location (very close to the seafront street). The owner of the hotel Isabella helped us to find interesting restaurants and places to go in the city. The breakfast was good with a fresh juice, eggs and bread.
Isabela was friendly and personable - will return in the future!
Clean, big and new rooms. Good breakfast. Friendly owner.
Construction going on from day one.
the owner is very kind. She makes breakfast for us even early morning (cuz we had to leave at 7am for diving your), including fresh squeeze fruit/vegi juice, hot bread, eggs and coffee. the service was excellent.
Nothing much to say. one thing could be the location is bit far from attractions. if you like quiet environment then it's perfect. about 15 min walk to the center. There is always taxi around, and $1 take you in the town.
nice room without windows - still clean and stuff was friendly. Location is ok even though you have a10 minute wlk to the center. Improvment of the place was under way, as they where heavily building.
The room has very pretty bedding. The owner makes you feel like your at home. Anything you need just ask.cant do enough to you. I will be sad to leave.
the staff was very friendly and the owner (older woman) was great and very nice: she made the breakfast every morning and it felt a bit like a mother. Helped also with organizing tours (but not english speaking).
The price was quite high for this kind of room and I don`t know it I would pay this again. Probably, I would rather look for a similar room/price but closer to the pier.
The B&B was comfortable and Maria was very accommodating and pleasant. Does not speak much English. Nice town.
No hot water in bathroom sink o.k. in shower. Breakfast small and no fruit on our second stay. Somewhat disorganised.
We loved the fresh juices Dona Isabel made for breakfast, with fruit from her garden! The breakfast was solid and very tasty. The rooms were cleaned daily, and the sheets changed after three nights. They also provided eco-friendly soaps and shampoos, as well as water for their guests.
While the room was very nice and new - located in the new wing still under construction - there is one problem that is easy to solve. Namely, the nice French windows that open to the garden do not have bug nets, and as our room had no other window we had to turn on the A/C (which we really dislike) to cool the room, sometimes even at night. If we had a bug net on the door it would be perfect!
Good breakfast included
The owners are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was made by the owner and is good. Walking distance to the port where departure the ferry/boat to other islands. Location is quiet, could sleep well. The room is cleaned every day and bed sheet changed once a 2 days, which is good. I got sunburn and the owner (Isabel) offered aloe vera to put on my skin to help!!!
The wifi signal at the room we stayed rarely works and when does, it is slow.
-Great breakfast -Helpful staff (the owner Isabel, give us good advice about what we should see in Galapagos) -The room was clean and new
-The house was under constructions so during the day there could be some noise. -When we came back in the middle of the day we experienced twice that the door to our room was left open. Apparently they where installing a new air-condition system in our room while we where away - It really bothered us that the workers just had access to our room without us being informed!
Isabella served a wonderful breakfast every morning and was helpful with questions and directions. The room was great and located a short walk from everything. Would definately stay here again if I find myself in the Galapagos again.
Hotel is still under construction and extremely noisy. No breakfast despite being told it would be ready by 6:20 am. Overpriced. No one speaks English. Could not recommend.
I liked the room and the owner...who went out of her way to be helpful.
It is not located right on google maps...it shows up really close to town and close to the path to tortuga beach....but in reality it is not located there at all...but in town behind mecano gallardo !! extremely hard to find...especially that nobody I asked knew the hotel ;-0(
Walking distance to Pelican Bay; Quiet surrounding
Your web offer said flat TV and private bath but this was not so. There were 3 beds in the room. I was the lone occupant.
The owner went above and beyond to assist me in getting tours. She made me feel more like a family friend than a paying guest.
Construction currently underway made me doubt that I was at right place at first. Though overall it didn't impact on my stay.
