We stayed in a room for 4 on the top floor, quiet and breezy. Breakfast by the pool watching the finches fly around was magic. It's centrally located and a convenient short walk to the main boardwalk and the Darwin Research Center.

Stayed while we waited for our cruise to start. Easy walk from where the bus drops you off and only 5 minutes from the main town streets. Breakfast is very plain with just juice and an egg with bread. Pool looked ok but didn't use it. There is a laundry place just round the corner $1 for a kilo. Room is large and very basic but it was fine for us.

I've read some of the unfavorable reviews from around the same time we stayed at the Verde Azul. We had a completely different experience. On our first stay on Santa Cruz we had stayed somewhere else where we'd paid a lot more and were quite disappointed. When we returned to Santa Cruz after visiting Isabela and San Cristobal we had our final night on the Galapagos at the Verde Azul. We thought the hotel was good value compared to where we'd stayed on our first visit and appreciated the pool, which we had not had at our previous accommodation in Puerto Ayora. It was not too far to walk down to the main street or the Darwin Center. Our room was fairly basic, but spacious enough for two people and perfectly adequate. We had no problems with noise - perhaps it depends what part of the hotel you are in. Our room was not facing the street but towards the back, and one level down from reception and the pool area. The staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fairly basic but OK - served by the pool.

I would not recommend this hotel or stay here again - our stay unpleasant in many ways. To mention a few of the issues the rooms were not insulated from outside noise, the air con very loud, contradictory and unclear information given from staff, poor WiFi and an average breakfast.

Good afternoon, our accommodation is sold by blocks so that the best rooms are on the upper floors from the reception area. They are very light rooms with a lot of ventilation and big. the ground floor rooms are large spacious but there are windows and there are no views, the air circulates and it has air conditioning, the price varies when they are on the ground floor. We have wi-fi internet but in Galapagos nowhere is the signal good, we depend on the providers. But if we have wi-fi

Galapagos Verde Azul looks like an hostel valued 20 us $ a night, but they ask 65. It is far from center and turistic Malecon. The room was so small that with the luggage we couldn't move and without anything. No space to hang clothes or where dry bathsuits. The bathroom was old and in bad conditions, no space. The place smells humidity. The swimming pool is very small and the view from the hotel and the rooms is terrific. The only good things are the kindness of the girls at the reception and the breakfast, but I would not recommend the hotel. There are better for same price in the center!

Dear Evelina we understand that you would like an accommodation that is close to the center of the bustle of cars and sounds of music but our accommodation is in a quiet area and that makes it special outside of the noise surrounded by vegetation, therefore a quiet and with an affordable price. Paying a few dollars you could dry your clothes in our accommodation or 100 meters from here there are many washing machines. Lojically, when you wash your clothes or when you wet them, it is very difficult to dry the clothes and therefore the humidity is allowed in the room. The accommodation has a large terrace where our guests tend their clothes or pay for washing and drying service. as i say this is a quiet place. Well, it's the first time I've read that the room is small. Actually, these rooms are very big. quiet and close to the charles Darwin station

I booked my room 6 month before the stay with one single request: I want a quiet room. This is what we got: room with “windows” only to the corridor of the hotel. One “window” was only o hole in the wall with the mosquito net. No privacy, no sound protection! The room was also just below the breakfast room, so since 6 a.m. we could not sleep. Second day I went to complain to the staff and demanded another room. They said us I could be a while, but a group of tourist would soon check out. It repeated every second day. When they offered us another room some 36 hours before our checkout I took it as a bad joke. I strongly do not recommend! As a good-bye gift we found this bug in the room.

Our group of 9 stayed at this hotel while visiting Galápagos Islands. This hotel is running by a couple who also live at this hotel with their children. If you look for a place to crash during visiting Galápagos, it’s recommend. It’s clean and within asking distance to Main Street, Darwin Station, shops. It’s a safe place. The hotel owners are very kind and friendly. Will go above and beyond to make hotel guests happy and comfortably. BF is included and make to order. We had great experience staying here.

First night at this place. The location is close to the main strip and the room is decent size. One of the windows in the room is just a screen and you can hear everyone who walks by. The problem is people aren’t just walking by. The owners kids are running rabbid, yelling, screaming and crying. The owners and family seem to live here, as I am heard them slamming dishes. Every door in this hotel is slammed to close. The cherry on top is the gym across the street. If you are in a lower level room you can hear weights constantly hitting the floor. Would not recommend unless you are going to get super drunk and stumble in blacked out at 1am. Good luck

Dear Cichanowiczb, the family lived in the accommodation for a few years is the first comment and we estimate it, the family decided to leave the accommodation the children, the owner's children, it was the joy of hundreds of guests, today they are older but the older ones no longer live on the island They are in university and the youngest in school have moved to another sweet home.The Gym is now regulated by the local authorities at times where the guests are not in the accommodation but outside doing tours

This hotel is a five minute walk away from the center of Puerto Ayora. The staff is very friendly. They give you advices and prepare breakfast for you. The pool is also nice and clean. They clean the room every day and provide new towels. Airconditioning is available in the room.
