Our room (#22) was large and clean. There was a TV in the room, bathtub (sans plug), 2 couches, and a fridge. It is well-located in relation to downtown. This, however, has been our most disappointing accommodation in Ecuador. This room is located close to the street and across from the local stage / volleyball court - it is extremely noisy. It's safe to say that "restful" is not a word I'd use to describe this place - especially if you're doing early morning excursions.
My husband and I stayed at the Blue Marlin in San Cristobal for four nights. We liked the friendly family atmosphere, the big breakfast (fruit, yogurt, juice, granola, eggs, cheese, bread - ham if you wanted it but we're veggies), the cool little pool and the shaded conversation areas. Our room was simple, not at all fancy, but clean and serviceable, including air conditioning (needed!) and refrigerator. When we needed to extend our stay, we were accommodated easily. The staff do not speak much English, but work hard to understand you and have a lovely attitude. There were few North Americans there when we went - primarily Spanish-speaking or European. Lots of families with kids.
The rooms were dated and spartan. The office was often unstaffed, locked and lights out. Travelers in our group came back to a room that had been serviced but absolutely no towels in sight! It is very conveniently located a couple blocks from the downtown and oceanfront. The pool and hot tub were the same temperature......cool.
I was a single in a big double room with an refrigerator and a full bath tub. Great a/c too. Great service too. I had booked a 360 tour through the hotel and they made sure that I was on time for it opening up breakfast early too. they walked me to the tour base too. Diaz a siete! 10 to seven Good location near good restaurants. They opened the hot tub late for us too.
The Blue Marlin was a great place to stay while in San Cristobal. The staff were friendly and helpful and everything was very clean. Breakfast was available every morning and was delicious! You can walk to the boardwalk from here in just a few minutes.
Our first vacation since March last year. Went to Galapagos and stayed at blue Marlin hotel. Five minutes walk to the beach and businesses. Best of all sit down breakfast. Coffee juice yogurt bread ham fruit granola. Good for a long walk later. Taste delicious too!!!. Definitely a five star. Courteous staff and owner. Recommend without reservations. Thank you.
Got a room on the 2nd floor. The bridge linking to the rooms on 2nd floor may be a bit slippery when it rains. Quite an effort carrying suitcase up the stairs and across the bridge. Was a bit worried that the bridge may not be strong enough to hold the additional weight. Unfortunately, that's the only way to get to the room. Luckily, it was ok. Breakfast here was simple and service average. There seemed to be mosquitoes around so may need insect repellent. In terms of location, it is within walking distance to the jetty where there are many restaurants and shops around.
The Blue Marlin is a decent centrally located hotel in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. The hotel lacks a little character and feels a bit like a motel but on the plus side it has huge, clean and well maintained rooms, a swimming pool and helpful friendly staff. Breakfast was included, but it was quite a basic offering
The room was spacious and the breakfast was descent with eggs, fruit, juice, yogurt, granola, coffee, water and teas. The staff were efficient but quiet. The bed was comfortable, the pool was small but refreshing and it is close to some nice restaurants and nice walks to the beaches and up the hillside. The Interpretive center was also fairly close by and worth the visit.
We stayed at the Blue Marlin for 2 days before and 2 days after a 10 day live aboard dive trip out of San Cristóbal. The rooms are large and have a refrigerator for things that you can buy at a little shop practically next door. There is a small pool which was totally adequate, and we spent a fair amount of time in the loungers beside the pool. The staff, especially Louis, are great. Breakfast is included and was a very pleasant surprise... very nice with fresh fruit juice. The hotel is 2 blocks straight up from the main pier and is close to everything. They were very flexible with check in and check out times which we greatly appreciated. I would return to this hotel if I find myself in San Cristobal in the future. One small thing to be aware of if you reserve this hotel through Booking.com is that you are told that 50% of the booking will be immediately charged to your credit card (not all that unusual on booking.com). When we arrived for our first stay they indicated that they don’t actually charge anything until you arrive and wanted payment for the full amount. Though I confirmed that they had not charged my credit card at the time of booking, this was confusing. Because the pros far outweigh this small con, I’m still giving this property 5 stars in terms of value for money.…
