We stayed here for 4 nights & really enjoyed it. You definitely get the personal touch here. Harry, ths owner, really goes the extra mile. He picked us up from the airport & took us to the ferry terminal & made sure we went to the right check-in. Our accommodation on other islands didn't offer this so it was much appreciated. Breakfasts were delicious, freshly cooked & the French Toast beautifully presented! They even provided a snack breakfast to go when we had to leave early. Our room was clean, comfortable & I can't fault this place. It is a 10 minute uphill walk from town. We knew this & had no issue with it but taxis are cheap if you're tired or it's very hot.
This hotel is simply the best on san Cristobal! Owned by a very sweet family. They are very helpful, they helped us getting very early breakfast for a trip and helped us when we had any questions. The breakfast was very good and served on the rooftop with a truly nice sea view, and the rooms are clean and cozy. As the owner said himself “we only want happy faces” - and we were very happy with our stay at the hotel:))
We spent 5 nights at this excellent hotel. Our rooms were very comfortable, had lots of hot water and good wifi. We were served lovely breakfasts on the rooftop terrace which had super views of San Cristobal. The facilities at the hotel were excellent providing washing facilities and drying areas. Lucrecia was so helpful and friendly transferring us from the airport to the hotel and also at the end of our stay arranging transfer to the ferry port. We can highly recommend a stay at this hotel.

The eco friendly is a superb hotel that is very welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast was great with a nice view. We didn't see much of Harry as he was working away but Lucrecia was a great host who gave advice and helped book some trips. There have been comments about the hotel being up a hill. It is up a hill but that gives nice views, and the walk is not difficult. If you dont want to walk taxi will cost about $1. A great location to explore this magical island
Stayed for one night. Harry the owner picked us up from the ferry and dropped us at the airport the following day. He is kind and knowledgeable. Breakfast is included and traditional with beautiful views of San Cristobal. A simple and clean room. Artsy hostel. Hot water! Clean. Main town is walkable or a two dollar taxi ride. A nice stay with a wonderful host!
Stop looking for another accommodation! This hotel is simply the best! The grounds are beautifully decorated, with close attention to every detail to ensure that the traveler feels surrounded by the Galápagos. From breathtaking views in the breakfast lounge to breezy, shady sitting areas with hammocks and comfortable seating, there is no lack of resources for complete relaxation. The rooms are immaculate, cool and pretty. Water pressure is good, plenty of hot water, and the tap water is filtered. Rooms also offer a fridge and microwave. The facility also offers security as only those with a key can enter the premises, day or night. As many have mentioned, Harry is an attentive and impeccable host. He picked us up at the pier, after waiting over an hour after having been misinformed about our arrival time. He also re-opened the kitchen at the hotel after learning that we had not been given a boxed breakfast as promised by the previous hotel. He is gracious, helpful and flexible. Fresh, delicious breakfast is provided every day. The grounds at Galápagos EcoFriendly are like being on a separate vacation. Everything you need is provided. There are not enough wonderful things to say about this place and its owners! We only left there yesterday and truly cannot wait to go back!…
Harry the owner makes this place extra special. His English is excellant and he is super knowledgeable about the island and incredibly helpful. Hotel is peaceful, breakfast was good and everything is immaculate. He saved us so much time and money, highly recommend the Eco Friendly Galapagos Hotel
This place is amazing. We came here with just our first night booked and Harry helped us have an incredible time on San Cristobal. Harry was super helpful with arranging different tours and helping us plan fun activities to do. He picked us up from the airport and then from the ferry when we stayed there again at the end of our trip. He lent us snorkeling gear and was extremely helpful when we needed anything or had any questions. He even helped me find a place to get a tattoo! They clean your room everyday and prepare an amazing free breakfast every morning. Harry and the Galapagos Eco Friendly Team went above and beyond!
The owner, Harry, is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The facility is clean, breakfast is tasty, a bit far from the pier as well as the business center but as a family, it doesn't bother us to walk a few minutes after dinner back to the hotel. Internet connection is slow but it is common in Galapagos.
Our family did a land-based visit to the Galapagos and stayed at Harry's Galapagos Eco Friendly Hotel for about five days over Christmas. We can't recommend the hotel highly enough. Harry picked us up from the airport (return to the airport was also complementary). He listened to what we wanted to do/see and helped us book boat tours and land tours. He also had excellent recommendations about what beaches to snorkle at and when based on the tides and local weather conditions. The hotel rooms were super clean with daily cleaning service as well. There was plenty of hot water and strong water pressure for showers. Breakfast was included in the room rates, and Harry's wife made a feast every morning with plenty of options. The inner courtyard was a fun place to hang out and take a break from the intense sun. Harry's hotel is a short walk (5 min?) from the center of town. While we came very eager to see the sea lions on on San Cristobal, their constant barking, fish-odored belching, and droppings made us grateful we were not directly on the beach. It was wonderful to stay in a clean, spacious hotel (we had a double room and our kids had a room next door with three twin beds) and have a connection to an Ecuadorian family who knew the area very well. Excellent say, we highly recommend Harry's Galapagos Eco Friendly Hotel.…
