We booked Golden Bay between our Amazon adventure and Galapagos cruise. It was the perfect interlude between two active excursions. We especially liked that there was a great Resturant and bar on site. Amid all of this we were able to experience free wheeling sea...More

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
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.
Apart from the beauty of the Galapagos, this is the best hotel in San Cristobal. 2 min from the airport, and walking distance from the peer for daily tours. Amazing and comfortable rooms, It has an amazing view for sunsets. And to top it of...More
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.

Sure, this small town has about 5 good quality restaurants and maybe a dozen or two cafes and food outlets. The beaches are variously 10 minute walking to maybe 4 Km (2-3 miles) or alternatively a taxi ride away. Don't underestimate the heat here, so sun and sweat can become an issue! We found this hotel to have the best food in town. Boat trips are the best alternative to see local nice areas and wildlife!

Dear DaisyDot24, sorry that took us so long to answer your question. You don´t need a travel agency to arrange your trip to Galapagos everything can be done independently. You just have to make sure that you are arriving to the correct airport since there are two airports in the Islands Baltra and San Cristobal
