We stayed at Torre Mar for 3 nights with our babygirl and it was wonderful. Donna and John were super friendly and helpful. The apartment was fully equipped and I would recommend it for families (but also for other types of groups) I really appreciated the shower towels and the daily fresh beach towels. The location is great, it was just a short walk to the harbour and all the restaurants. Thanks Donna and John for letting us stay at your place!

The first time I stayed at Torre Mar, I was with a group of volunteer teachers. My roommates and I thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable rooms and apartment amenities including a kitchen and living room area. The large roof top terrace offered our group a comfortable, casual meeting place in the evenings with views of the surrounding community. Since then, I have traveled to Santa Cruz twice more and always choose to stay at Torre Mar. I highly recommend it. I thoroughly enjoy my stay each time because it is a safe, comfortable, spacious, clean place to relax after exploring the island. This is a family-owned business with a personal touch. A glass of fresh lemongrass tea and a locally made chocolate always sits on the kitchen counter when I arrive which provides a warm welcome and is a very nice touch. The owners and staff are consistently kind, helpful, and professional. The family will provide a delicious home cooked breakfast upon request. The atmosphere at Torre Mar is special thanks to the considerate, friendly owners and staff. Its location in Puerto Ayora is convenient, within a short walk to the dock, nature centers, swimming and snorkeling sites, restaurants, and gift shops.

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.

We absolutely loved our experience here. My family stayed for 4 days in early January. The accommodations were awesome. We had two separate bedrooms (one for the parents, one for the kids), a full kitchen, and dining and living areas. It was so convenient walking one block to the local bakery to get fresh bread and yogurt to eat for breakfast in our kitchen. It is also in easy walking distance of downtown Puerto Ayora, including many restaurants on the water, and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Our hosts, Donna and John, were incredibly kind and helpful. They also led several of our tours and were extremely knowledgeable and made the tours really enjoyable. Donna gave us wonderful restaurant recommendations and made all the reservations for us (which usually included a discount). I highly recommend staying here!!

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.

This place saved us! We moved from Solymar due to super uncomfortable beds that literally made our bodies hurt to the point of not being able to sleep and min room amenities on top of that.

Then we found Torre Mar! Very comfortable stay. The beds are great, the AC’s work very well, the wifi was strongest there then anywhere I had on the island and all the room amenities you’d want!

The balcony off my room was a great place for me to get some work done and relax. But they also have the best outdoor hangout area ever! Comfy seats, grill, bar top, pretty views. Love this place.

The place is walking distance to pretty much anything you need. But in the rare event you want to ride. The taxis are by all the time and they’re only $1.50 to take you anywhere in town. Or Donna has a spot to keep your bike if you want to rent bikes.

Looking forward to coming back here and sending everyone I know to this place as well.

It was great stay, short walk to town, bakery, restaurants, fully equipped suite, good Ac, great water pressure, beautiful view, we are at top floor (5th floor penthouse) worth the climb, big balcony, nice breeze. Anywhere in town for $1.50 for taxi. Great English and very helpful owners - Donna and John, you get 10% off from their list of restaurants. We had breakfast the last day, Donna prepared it personally to our liking. The whole stay was awesome! Thank you Donna and John for you great hospitality!

Take four families with 9 kids (6-17) on a celebration of 50 years of marriage. Give each family and the older kids their own suite (kitchen, family room, and bedrooms).
Meet for common meals on the forth floor overlooking the bay. Retreat to your own penthouse on the fifth floor for time with g-kids and REST!!! Cook in or enjoy the local dining that Donna recommends. Coffee on the balcony for breakfast and a glass of wine at sunset. Family excursions that delight EVERYONE in the family and special touches that create moments to remember! Time to walk to the harbor to see one more seal or pelican. A few treasures from our stay at Torre Mar.

We have stayed here three times, and it's been wonderful every time. John is so super helpful, and patient with our three small kids! The apartments all have their own kitchen, the water in the showers is always hot, and the location is really central. There's a bakery at the end of the road, and John helps with taxis, boat tickets, and anything you need. We love staying and will be back again on our next trip to Galapagos!

Ideal for families who want to be able to cook their own breakfasts outside in their own private garden!

I'm so glad we chose Torre Mar for our stay in the galapagos! It feels new and fresh and our suite on the top floor was roomy and comfortable, with beautiful views! The kitchen had everything we needed, including fresh drinking water. Donna and John were such lovely hosts! Donna made perfect suggestions for our activities, from a private charter snorkeling spot to a great empanada stand a couple blocks away. The breakfast she made us was deliscious. The area felt safe to walk around anytime at all, with plenty of shops and restaurants that were good and easy to get to. John helped us arrange our covid test before our return trip home and provided lots of great guidance. I hope to return, and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else!

How far is the property from the ferry?
Answer from Donna D

Good Morning, Thank you for your interest in Torre Mar Galapagos Boutique Suites. If you are referring to the inter-island ferry we are about 5 blocks from the main dock where you board those ferries. It is a very short walk. Taxis are also available for $1.50 from the dock to Torre Mar. If you are referring to the ferry that you take across the canal from the airport to Santa Cruz the drive is about 45 minutes. We are located in town. Puerto Ayora is on the south side of the island. The canal crossing from the airport is on the north side of Santa Cruz in an uninhabited area. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Kind regards, Donna
