San Cristobal was our first stop in the Galapagos and the Galapagos Eco Friendly was a perfect start. This is a small, family run hotel with quirky art and amazing service. We were a party of 3 so we had 2 side by side rooms. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy and the A/C worked great. It was a...

What wonderful words to hear from you and what a great incentive to keep working hard to please all of our guests and give them a great, service-oriented and satisfying experience in Galapagos - thank you so much for all of you support. We are particularly grateful that you explained the wifi situation throughout the islands. While we know it...

This hotel requires a new tripadvisor star system, like 11-stars. I could go on forever, but instead, I'll just hit a few highlights. The Ecuador Tourist Board should force all of their current and future hotel managers to come here to understand the concept, "attention to detail." First, everything here has been thought out and built by a very intelligent...

You're the ones who should get 11 stars because it was such a pleasure to have you as our guests. When you have a small family hotel, such as ours, every day is dedicated to service and making our guests feel at home and immersed in the Galapagos experience. The feedback that you gave to us, not only in this...

I stayed here for a night on arrival to San Cristobal. The hotel & the room were clean and lovely. Air conditioning was a welcome relief from the heat, wifi worked well. The included breakfast on the top floor was lovely with a nice view to the waterfront. The only down side to the hotel for me, was the short...

Thank you for your wonderful positive review of the hotel. We are very happy that you enjoyed the amenities, service and delicious included breakfast, ​though very sorry that the short walk and inexpensive taxi ride ($1.50) deterred you from staying a second night. That said, I have great news to share with you. The hotel now has private van transportation...

Great 3 nights and breakfasts at this place. Rooms were spotless, and the smell of cleaning products was lovely. The breakfast was lovely- as travellers who regard breakfast as the most important meal of the day I like to know what I am going to get. Here we had a lovely coffee from a pot, we usually had 2 a...

We thought we would try this place because of the good rates and high reviews. The design and patio are interesting and colorful. Our room was small but nice. Our view was mostly rebar from partially completed buildings in the area. The location we felt was too far from town so we decided to leave. Not bad for the price...

Thank you for reviewing the hotel and acknowledging the high quality of our rooms and service. You say you left because we weren't in the center of town. I really wonder about that rationale since you stayed for just four hours, in which time you used every towel in the place and made a mess of the room before leaving...

Harry, the proprietor, is a wonderful host; you can trust his recommendations for day trips. The rooms are scrupulously clean. The breakfast is huge and delicious. The only disadvantage is that it is up at the back of the town on the hill. It's very easy, though, to walk downhill to town and take a taxi ($1/person) back up.
