We had a very pleasant one-night stay at Casa Blanca Isabela room on San Cristobal island in Galapagos. There was a great view from the small balcony outside our room overlooking the pier. Our location made it easy to get to restaurants and the various beaches nearby. Taxis were easy to find for visits that weren't just a short walk. We were surprised the bathroom was so big. We hadn't found that to be the case at other Galapagos hotels. We were disappointed in the taste of the free drinking water. But, that was the only issue. We didn't get a chance to try out the restaurant because it was closed the day we were there. Casa Blanca treated us to breakfast at a nearby place (very quick walk) instead. A short taxi ride from Casa Blanca to the airport cost just $1.50 if you hailed your own taxi, $2 if the hotel called one for you. Would definitely recommend for travelers.

We stayed for 3 nights in a family room. The room was huge, clean and very nicely decorated. Our room did not have view but the horel has an amazing terrace that looks over the harbour and we enjoyed sitting there watching the boats and the sea lions. Jackie welcomed us warmly and helped with everything we needed. The hotel restaurant was closed but we got vouchers for a nearby cafe that served great breakfast. We definitely recommend this hotel!

Centrally located across from the main dock in town. The room was huge and the bed was comfortable. It reminded me of a Greek beach bungalow. There's a wonderful terrace that looks over the harbor. Despite being on the main street, the only noises we heard at night were the sea lions in the water across the street. It's a great location to walk anywhere in town, and the breakfast in the downstairs restaurant was quite good.

We Loved the Casa Blanca hotel! Our room was cozy and cute. Although the room was small, the atmosphere, hospitality, and location of the hotel more than made up for it. Jacqui, the owner, lives on the third floor of the hotel and could not have been more accommodating while we were there. The restaurant downstairs, Chakhana, is EXCELLENT and breakfast was included with staying in the hotel. Be sure to have coffee/a drink on the second floor balcony while looking out onto the ocean.

Great hotel! Patio area outside our room had tables and lounge chairs with view of dock and ocean. Owner, Jackie, was very helpful and arranged a taxi driver to take us around the highlands, and a driver to take us around Quito on our way home. Hotel also had a fridge and purified water in the lobby. Restaurant downstairs served good breakfasts, and accommodated our dietary needs. Also had really good dinners! Nice quiet location. Very convenient for tours (across from dock). Also close to ATM, restaurants, and grocery store. Clean and safe.

Great place, well situated, very clean I read some of the old reviews and looked at pictures: this place seems to have been newly renovated recently. The style was kept, very individual, but the colors seem to have been changed to look much cleaner, much more inviting. Over all: a great stay in a nice room. Not like Hilton or anything, very individual rooms but very clean and with a character. The owner was very helpful and organized us a trip in a taxi with a guide across the island. Nice breakfast and the same restaurant is has excellent food in the evening. Nicely positioned, close to the harbor, to the national park and to the city.

Beautiful location. Steps from the harbor. Great restaurant included. I could not ask for a more lovely, comfortable place to be in for my visit to San Cristabol, Galapagos. The owner, Jackie, to extra care to provide me help with sun cream as I arrived with a bad burn and my husband was seasick from the rough boat ride from Santa Cruz. Just the right level of sympathetic care to make us feel welcomed.

We stayed here a night after leaving our cruise ship and before flying back to Quito. Excellent hiking (after the tour and the Interpretation Center which was fascinating) and the funniest sea lion colony imaginable! They are everywhere including park benches. The shop owners are very friendly and good restaurants abound. A very walkable town and were we there longer, we would have rented bikes. Worth getting a room with water view. They were remodeling so our breakfast was served down the street at a lovely street cafe with excellent food. Small and personal, nicely decorated white stucco. So much more charming than some of the bigger modern hotels on the boardwalk. There is a patio outside some rooms where I enjoyed a cup of tea and watching boats and tourists walk by. Thee are sea lions everywhere as well as herons and other wildlife. We just missed seeing a lion mom give birth on the beach at night after dinner while we were enjoying an evening stroll

Loved this hotel and didn't give it 5-stars only because of electric outlet issues. The location is fabulous, right on the harbor close to many good restaurants. The rooms are comfortable, the size sufficient and bathrooms are above par for San Cristobal. You'll get a warm shower. There is a beautiful common deck overlooking the scenic harbor where the sea lions will congregate taking up spots along the rock wall and the benches on the piers. Sorry, travelers but the sea lions get first dibs as do the marine iguanas (as it should be) on seating areas. The only issue with the hotel were the electric outlets - there were only 2 with two outlets each. Two of the outlet were dead and a third would not hold a plug while the fourth was used by the refridgerator. I managed by unplugging the refridgerator to plug in and charge my phone, laptop and to use the electric hot water pot. You should also be aware that the internet is pretty poor - not the hotel's fault but mentioning it so you are aware. This hotel is probably one of the best, if not the best, in San Cristobal. If you are staying in the room named Floreana and you need electric outlets, check to be sure they are working.

My family of four stayed here for two nights in an ocean view room (Genovesa) on the second floor with a double bed and two twin beds. First, the significant pros: You cannot beat the location. The hotel is on the main strip directly across from the dock. For one of our tours, which met at the dock, the agency told us to just sit on the balcony at the hotel and they would wave up when they were ready for us. The rooms and the entire hotel are uniquely decorated with a Mediterranean vibe (see photos). The owners obviously put great effort into making sure this is not a cookie-cutter hotel. The restaurant on the first floor serves the included breakfast. You order from one of the three tasty breakfast platters on the restaurant menu (each includes eggs, fruit, coffee and juice, with either waffles, toast or plantain). There is a dispenser with drinking water in the lobby from which you can fill water bottles. There is a lock box in the room, but you need to bring your own lock. We used a luggage lock - anything bigger would not fit. The air conditioning worked well. The room has a refrigerator and coffee pot. There was adequate hot water in the shower but only if you know how to use it and there are no instructions. The shower turns on with a single knob. To get hot water, you turn the knob just enough to get the water going. If you turn it further, it mixes in cold water. We took cold showers the first day until we figured it out. The cons, unfortunately, are significant: The restaurant on the first floor is popular in the evening. If you want to go to sleep early you have to contend with music and voices from the restaurant by using ear plugs and running the noisy air conditioner to create white noise. The only way to get air into the room is to open the glass panel front door - the windows on either side of the door don't open. Since you don't want to leave the front door open while you sleep, the only option is to run the air conditioner (which, as mentioned, you have to do anyway to cover up the restaurant noise if you want to turn in early), even if it is cool outside with a nice ocean breeze. Basically, the design of the door/windows wastes the prime location, not to mention wasting electricity by forcing you to run the air conditioner on an island where they are trying to conserve resources. The bed was not comfortable. I woke up repeatedly both nights with pains in my back. Given those drawbacks, I would choose a different property if I ever had the good fortune to return to San Cristobal.
