There are few times when staying at an Airbnb can feel as comfortable as going home. My stay at the Torre Mar was just that. John and Donna were accessible at a moments noticed and helped expedite my salvoconducto, coordinated a taxi pickup, and had a room available for my lads minute trip all within an hour! When we arrived, John and Donna greeted us like we were longtime friends although it was our first time meeting. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Hot hot shower after the long plane ride was amazing. Plus, it is only a short 10 min walk to the port and the main restaurant areas. John went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed for our excursions and more, and one day he even gave us a homemade loaf of delicious bread. We traveled to Isabela for a few days but stayed a second time at Torre Mar on our way back home as we needed to coordinate our COVID test. John went out of his way to see if anywhere was open on a Sunday to get it done. John had personal knowledge of the area and gave us great pointers on things to see and do that only locals know about. If you want a clean and comfy place that has that familiar feeling of hanging out with friends then staying at the Torre Mar gets my vote.…
John and Donna were truly exceptional. They were so hospitable, and went above and beyond to help us with everything. They helped us book tours, get the COVID travel permits, escort us to the places where the tour pick-ups were. They hand-delivered coffee and food in the morning. They let us use their umbrella and sun hats. We were blown away with how friendly they were. The hotel is also very conveniently located, very clean and nice, and has great amenities. The best part was the beautiful rooftop with an amazing view of the city, ocean, and mountains. Highly recommend.
Donna and John went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They helped us plan all of our tours (John even gave us one tour himself), made sure our rooms were spic and span, and gave us recommendations on where to eat and what to do. John went out of his way to get us our required COVID tests (he even went with us to get them!) and checked in on us every day to make sure we had everything we needed. I could not recommend Torre Mar more.
If you are looking for a clean and family friendly place to stay... I would highly recommend Torre Mar Galapagos. John and Donna are amazing hosts! The apartments we spacious and comfortable and have everything you need. We loved our stay with them!
We are a family of 4 and this hotel was a perfect option for us. We selected a two bedroom suite which gave us plenty of room. We had a King bed and in the second bedroom our kids each had a double bed. There was a full kitchen with a living room. The hotel also has a large social terrace with an ocean view for all the guests to enjoy. The owners and staff offer wonderful service. The suite was clean. They had great suggestions for restaurants and activities. A friend suggested Torre Mar and we are so happy we stayed there. I strongly recommend this hotel. If you are looking for a remote island vacation with lots of outdoor activities Galapagos and Torre Mar are a great choice.
