If you go to San Cristobal Island, Galapagos (and, you definitely should go there), stay at the Golden Bay Hotel & Spa. It is a modern, designed, boutique hotel. Very clean, white, lots of light, and filled with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in...More

Loved the decor and our rooms were so clean and bright. They overlooked the beach which with was full of sea lions which my family enjoyed watching. The restaurant was the best in all of the Galapagos

The location is great. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. Showers are great. The staff is helpful and friendly. Wifi is wesk and breakfast is limited and repetitive. Pricey but probably the best on the island.

The Golden Bay Hotel & Spa with 21 rooms was conceived and designed to offer guests an extraordinary level of comfort and world class service in the wonderful and unique Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. The Hotel merges luxury with environmental demands of "the Enchanted Islands". The architectural design combines modernity with the surrounding natural world. The Golden Bay Hotel was also designed to integrate "Playa de Oro" San Cristobal to its arquitectural design and contribute to enhance the natural beauty of the bay, the city and the bottom of the green hills of the island. The Golden Bay Hotel was designed to be more than a top choice accommodation. We seek to provide our guests an outstanding hotel experience, designed to further enrich the fabulous experience of visiting the Galapagos.

There are also shops close by that can help you book tours and trips. The day trips however are going to suck. Take a cruise. You can usually get them 1/2 off if you book them last minute on the islands.
