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.
-Location is 5-10 minutes walk to the pier and 10 minutes walk to the entrance of the path to Tortuga Bay. There are a lot of laundry services nearby. The owner is friendly.
The place is still under construction! They are expanding the complex and building more rooms. From 06.00 hrs in the morning till 20.00 hrs at night there was a lot of noise! Noise from hammering and other electrical machines. We only stayed here for 1 night, before our cruise started the next day. But we were disturbed by the noise in the early morning. I understand that they cannot close down the place for the time-being, but it is far from convenient if you need some sleep during those hours... If you are away the whole day, it doesn't matter,
It was a very lovely place to stay. Actually, one of the nicest we stood in Ecuador, though one the most expensive too (comprising with hotels in Quito or Mindo, for example). Lava House has everything you need! Very clean, great breakfast, hot water always. It's family-run, and all of them were very helpful. Ask the host about the affordable taxi, if you are up to visiting some high-lands landmarks, like "the twins". However, as everywhere in Ecuador, you better know Spanish language, as the staff at Lava House doesn't speak much English.
The place was under construction and therefore, said the owner, they had no air con nor cable tv yet. But they sell it as they have it already. During the night it was very hot and there was no window at the room, just a fan. I could get a nicer place at this price and with all of that included, so if you don't mind staying at a place with no air con you should look for a cheaper one because this one is too pricey for what they offer.
The location was fine and the owner was helpful.
I had emailed 2 or 3 times to insure that the room was for my wife and I. I was assured that the price quoted was for 2 people but when I went to pay it was double what was quoted. Therefore we only stayed 1 night and not the 8 nights we originally planned.
Expensive compared to other places in Galapagos, best to shop around.
The owner is very sweet.
I booked a room with a private bathroom for $50, got a 3 bed room, not too clean, old sheets, bathroom out in the hall just above the kitchen very everybody could watch my every move. Not very private, and nothing like the pics on booking.com. Possibly are the other rooms much nicer, otherwise I really don't get the rating this place has. $50 is a robbery, as you will find more central and nicer places.
The owners are amazing and they are working on improving the facilities with A/C in the rooms. It's a very niçe place to stay on Santa Cruz, not down town, just a few block up, but totally worth the money. The breakfast is excellent and you cn use the kitchen to cook also.
