I stayed here for a total of 4 nights ( originally 2 but stayed for 2 more ) and I can honestly say I wish I’d known about it sooner as I would have spent more time in San Christobal and in this hotel.

Hary and his family were welcoming and friendly from the first minute to the last.
He met us at the dock with a smile on his face and took us to the hotel. The rooms are spotlessly clean and offer filtered drinking water straight from the tap as well as a water dispenser at the main entrance.

The breakfasts were possibly the best I had in my 3 weeks on the islands and the view was definitely unbeaten. Perched up the hill from the main town it offers stunning views of the bay. An absolute pleasure to look out at during breakfast.

Despite these harsh and testing times, Hary and his team did not slack on the service, always going above and beyond.

I will definitely stay here again when I return for Galapagos round 2!!

Especially in the service category, Harry, the owner went overboard to take care of our every need, from arranging ferry tickets and tours, to setting up an extra breakfast room in the courtyard since my wife couldn’t do the stairs. He also picked us up at the airport, and took us for departure. Two “extras” of note were the high-quality breakfasts, and purified drinking water from the sink faucets in the room. The bed was fine, and the shower had excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water. The internet was better than we had on Santa Cruz Island, albeit slow compared to that on the mainland, as we understand is true for all the islands. Any complete review has to note some deficiency, and for that all I can offer is that the cable TV wasn’t working, a victim of the Covid induced depression on the island. It’s also worth nothing that the hotel’s location is at the edge of the village, a 12 minute walk to the waterfront and most restaurants, or a $2 taxi fare.

Galapagos Eco Friendly was a lovely place for my parents (60’s) and I (30’s) to stay on San Cristobal. It’s a cool set up- a walled in complex at the top of a hill in town just 3 minutes walking from port/city center (and with ample taxi’s available as soon as you step out who will drive you just about anywhere in town for $2). A sweet family lives in the house at the center of the complex. The wife and son picked us up in the hotel van as soon as we stepped out of flight (for free of course!). She also arranged and paid our taxi to airport since it was still breakfast times when we left so she could t drive us, which was super nice. She doesn’t speak great English, but she is very nice and we communicated just fine and she runs an excellent hotel. The husband runs a boat tour so we didn’t see him much. Breakfast is awesome!! Yogurt and nuts and juice and cereal and toast and coffee is out on table. Then, the wife and another staff member bring out fruit and then eggs and meat. Rooms were clean and a/c worked great. WiFi worked fine. There are 5 cats in the courtyard that are friendly and playful- they don’t come in room so you are fine even if you are allergic. Again, the courtyard is open and super eclectic with places to sit, art on the walls, and gorgeous plants. There is a washer and dryer, as well as line to hang clothes. Tv’s weren’t working when we were there, but who needs that when you have so much to see in Galapagos:) they come and make your bed (and even folded my clothes I accidentally left on bed!) daily. They didn’t have a wine opener but have a bottle cap opener now :) I give this place 5 stars! I included pics of port too- again, 2 minute downhill walk! Just remember that you have to walk back up ;)

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.

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!

Absolutely fantastic place to stay!! And a great value for the money!

From picking me and my wife at the airport to dropping us off at the ferry to Santa Cruz and 24 hours available in between, Harry was a terrific host and, by far, the best host of all islands!!

The place is very clean, comfortable, well equipped, has AC and has a very good breakfast.

The only thing I read as a downside was the "distance to downtown". Honestly, it is a 7 minutes downhill walk and a US$ 1 per person cab ride back. And most of the times, you will be picked up or dropped off there by tours.

I would definitely recommend and stay there again on a next trip. I wish the places we stayed at Isabela and Santa Cruz were at least a little bit like this place.

O melhor lugar que ficamos em toda Galápagos!

Harry nos pegou no aeroporto e nos deixou no barco no final. Neste interim, esteve 24 horas disponível. Foi o nelhor anfitrião de todos os lugares que estivemos.

O seu hotel é limpo, confortável, bem equipado, tem AC e eum excelente café da manhã.

Com certeza recomendo e ficaria lá de novo. Quem me dera que os outros lugares que ficamos em Isabela e Santa Cruz fossem um pouquinho parecido com esse.

Harry is the owner of the hotel and picked us up from the airport in the only minivan on the island. On the way to the Hotel, he gave us a short tour of the island. Harry built the Galapagos Eco-Friendly hotel himself over a span of 15 years. The hotel is located at the edge of town, just a 10 minute walk downhill to the beach where to the shops and restaurants. The room was a bit small but it was large enough for two people and their luggage. The AC got very cold and the TV featured many English stations. NO insects anywhere in the room. The shower water was filtered and got very hot.
Harry and his wife served breakfast every morning on the 3rd floor outdoor terrace overlooking the island. The menu varies each day. Hot breakfast was delightful and the coffee was the best I had on the island.
We only had 1/2 day in San Cristobel so Harry arranged a private tour. The personal service from Harry made the trip memorable and I highly recommend the Galapagos Eco-Friendly hotel.

Harry helped us coordinate logistics and answer questions prior to our arrival. We stayed for two nights, and enjoyed our stay very much. Harry and his wife are not just amazing hosts, but genuinely good people.
Whether you are a solo traveler or a family, I recommend staying here when visiting San Cristobal.
Notes: less than 5-10 minute walk to restaurants and main area. Filtered water on site, and clean accommodations.

Harry is one of the friendliest and most helpful hosts we met on our trip. He and his family and team always went the extra mile for us. The breakfast was great, featuring fresh, local food tailored to our dietary preferences, and offered a nice view of the coast. Harry was available on WhatsApp for any questions or inquiries and provided us with excellent recommendations for things to do on the island, as well as help with spontaneous tour bookings.

The tap water in the rooms is already filtered, which avoids plastic waste and is extremely convenient.

Overall, Harry and his team made our stay on San Cristobal an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!

Our stay at Galapagos EcoFriendly was beyond our expectations. Henry and Lucrecia picked us up at the airport and showed us around for a little before we got settle into our spacious, super clean beautiful room. The room has great A/C system, microwave, toiletries in the bathroom, amazing hot shower, and enough closet space. Breakfast was amazing everyday, kept us up and running until late in the day. Great yummy and healthy choices. Now, the personalized customer service you get here is all about what I love to Ecuador for. The owners immediately gave me their contact phone number, suggested great island activities and the warmth of this place is so authentic and unique. Relaxing in the afternoon in the hammock while my kids played in the lobby area made it a dream vacation. It was my daughter birthday while we were there and Henry got a surprise cake for her in the breakfast area. (The little things are the big ones)From Main Street you walk up 10 minutes and it’s a great exercise or a taxi fee is $1.50-$2 dollars.
There were a couple of times that I run into a few issues and the owners were always so helpful, resourceful and supportive. At the end of our trip Lucrecia took us back to the airport and I felt like I was saying goodbye to my own family. Galapagos is an enchanted island that I would encourage you to visit and I highly recommend your stay with Henry and Lucrecia to have the whole perfect round Ecuadorian island experience.
