We spent 3 nights at this hotel. The rooms with sea view are spectacular. For this reason deserves 5 stars. Left us perplexed and neglect service of staff, breakfast was basic and careless. Altogether a good solution if you don't have too many expectations. Marco

Our family stayed at Hotel Albemarle from 2 May - 6 May. We had two ocean-view rooms, with an adjoining balcony (fantastic view). The rooms were spacious and was kept clean on a daily basis. There's purified drinking water in each room and when you run out, they refill. The king bed wasn't too bad, but the pillows were super...

Thoroughly enjoyed my 4 day stay at Albemarle. A beautiful hotel in a location that is as close to perfect as you could wish for! The view from the room was to die for, and falling out of bed on to the beach every morning was just amazing! It's impossible not to feel relaxed in this place, the hotel is...

We stayed at the Albemarle Hotel from April 2nd to the 5th and we found it to be above our expectations. Upon arrival Max upgraded us from a poolside to an ocean view room. What a view it was! The room was very nice and up to our standards: comfortable bed, very nice bathroom, filtered water in the room, and...

We were prepared for the bad reviews on Trip Advisor so we were surprised enjoyed our stay of 5 days. The excellent service from owner Max Murray by e-mail has been important for us.

We are independent travellers who visited Galapagos last month. We are avid UK bird watchers and decided to visit Galapagos after watching the BBC's wonderful documentary series. This hotel was right at the top end of our budget but we were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. As they say, its all about location, location, location,...

DO NOT STAY HERE! I was so looking forward to staying at this hotel. It seemed reasonably priced for the description of the hotel. Although I had read the reviews of the hotel as having ants on the beds, I did contact the owner directly who told me that had been a one-time occurrence because the room was next to...

It is in a good location across from a swimming beach and around the block from some great restaurants. The reason for the poor review was due to lack of cleanliness. The same dead bugs were in the same location in our bathroom the entire stay. Also open bars of soap and hair were left from the previous tenants. The...

Stayed here as an independent traveler while visiting Galapagos. We had a great time doing day trips with local guides (helps if you speak Spanish and they really do know the best places to take you to!) and eating out at local restaurants, but the hotel really was the low point of our stay. Great location right on the beach...

The Albemarle was somewhat of a dissapointment to us for the cost. First - BEAWARE - it is located RIGHT next to a lively bar. If you need rest - don't stay here. The bar noise goes until wee hours of the morning. Although the desk clerk assured us the noise stops after 9:00 PM it does not. In addition,...
