This is one of the greatest stays we could have booked for our honeymoon! The service of all the staff was top notch, everything was very safe and COVID precautions were taking at every step. We stayed in a suite which was spacious and very comfortable with a patio overlooking the pool, which was a great option for cooling down after hot days of exploring. The breakfast was so good and the food just kept coming. The location was great as well - a block away from the port so close enough to the action but without the noise of the busy street. Overall we could not have asked for a better hotel!

I loved this hotel for its size and function. The rooms were sizable and very comfortable. The spaces are well thought out and work great for casual conversation. The rooftop restaurant gives you great views of the town and the food is very good. Breakfast there was very nice too as you hear the town come to life. The hotel is located very closes to the town square but far enough off not to be too noisy. I recommend this hotel for two reasons; the staff is very friendly and knowledge of the hospitality industry and its focus on details and cleanness. It was the best hotel I stayed in all of Ecuador.

This is a really good, luxury hotel a stones throw away from the Centre and main pier. The rooms are just great, the hotel is modern, stylish and spotless. The service was also impeccable - the bar staff and reception were all just so helpful. The Manager, Mavi, sorted out a slight mix up with my room booking on the very first day with consummate efficiency and my room then was just marvellous - Thank you to all the team for a wonderful stay!

Ikala is beautiful and luxurious and so close- 2 blocks from the main pier. Their service was impeccable. Luis especially took great care of us. Our room was huge and great. They held our bags and washed laundry while we went over to Isabela. The pool area is beautiful. Because of covid, there were few guests and we look forward to going back!

Arguably the nicest hotel in Puerto Ayora, certainly the newest. All the modern conveniences and service of a 5 star hotel. Location was terrific. Don't forget to walk down to the pier at night! We saw sharks, turtles & sea lions playing there just 2-3 blocks from the hotel. Super happy we chose a land tour, or we wouldn't have been able to see all the sea lions walking around Puerto Ayora and sleeping in town at night!
