Excellent place to stay for solo travellers or couples or families, is just 6 blocks away from the port and makes it be in a quieter spot, very friendly staff and great breakfast! I would definitely stay there again and I really recommend it. A bit expensive, but is worth it! Thanks Hotel Galapagos Team!

Most of the places on Galapagos islands are quite basic, with the necessary amenities and not too much of snazz. This place is perfect- it's simple, homely, big rooms, great staff and v conveniently located. They make awesome banana pancakes for bfast! The owners are v helpful, kind and super! They know basic English and Spanish :) Worth staying here!

Loved everything about the accommodation. Breakfast was served daily on the premises and early enough for you to get started for the day. The room I had was absolutely comfortable and clean. The decor was cosy, which left me feeling like I was @ home. When I booked this place I thought it was closer to the city centre and... More

I'm not sure why a lot of the reviews on here say that these suites are beautiful and wonderful because from our experience they were basic bordering on ugly. Maybe unrealistically we had expected beautiful views of the island but were instead confronted by views of differing rubbish strewn alleyways on three sides of our bedroom, which is perhaps the...

We had a great two nights at the Suites del Sol at Galapagos islands. The hotel is very nice. Our room was on the first floor and had a kitchen. We even had our breakfast in our suite. The people are very nice and helpful in arranging taxi pick up at the airport and back to the airport. This place... More

Not often does a hotel or inn, even a small, intimate one, make you feel immediately at home. The wonderful owners and staff did exactly that ! My wife and I were there for eight nights and could easily have spent eight more. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and accommodate of every need. The... More

Pros: Incredibly friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms, free breakfast. Con: A little far from the city center where most things are located.

Beautiful little B&B. Great breakfast to get the day going. Nice walk to the downtown area. Wonderful hosts that were very accommodating. They even helped us sort out a hotel on Isabela while we were gone for 2 nights.

I stayed here for a week during a recent visit to the Galapagos. The room was gorgeous and Cecelia and her mother couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were cleaned every day. A delicious breakfast was provided every morning and taxis arranged for me for whenever I needed them. I would highly recommend staying there, it's a great location.

I stayed in Suites del Sol during my vacation to Galapagos. This hotel couldn't be better! Cecilia and her mother are super friendly and welcoming! They helped us with information and arranged a continental breakfest at a pre-asked time (because most of the tours are at 7:00, we used to have breakfest at 6:00 or 6:30).
