“Great Family Option”
Reviewed 16 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This cottage was a great place to stay for the Santa Cruz portion of our Galapagos vacation! The location is perfect - easy walk to main streets, food kiosks, market, piers and Tortuga Bay. The pool was nice to enjoy at the end of an active day for the kids. The owners were gracious and helpful, the place was very clean and it was nice to have a kitchen. It fit our family of 5 perfectly. We were located at the front which did get a bit noisy at times, but it helped to get up early anyway to get a jump on all the day's activities! Would definitely recommend this place.

“Definitely recommend :)”
Reviewed 3 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

It was a great experience. The hosts are very nice, warm and helpful. The place and facilities are also great, comfortable and clean. The place is about 7 minutes walk from the center of the town and at the same time very quiet in the evening.

If you have the opportunity to stay at Galapagos Cottages I would highly recommend you do. My husband, myself, and our 3 children had a fantastic stay. The cottages are large, comfortable, clean, and Charles and his wife are amongst the friendliest, most helpful, hosts I have experienced in over 25 years of traveling the world. They were constantly happy to book taxis for us, and were even present at 6am to ensure there was no problem with the taxi arriving etc. We were able to walk to town, watch the animal wildlife at night in the ocean, eat some amazing food, and explore the area in full.

We loved our stay at Galapagos Cottages!! The owners Charles and Ximena are very warm, friendly and so helpful with advice about the islands, etc. Their property and units are spotless, cozy and comfortable with 24hr access to filtered water. Our young adult daughters enjoyed the pool and we took advantage of being so close to the lovely walk to Tortuga Bay beach, which is gorgeous! Walking to the many restaurants and stores is very easy as well and yet their location is very quiet. Charles also arranged a driver to pick us up at the airport, take us to see the giant tortoises and have lunch at El Rancho Manzanillo on the way to Puerto Ayora cottages, which was great! We highly recommend staying here, taking the bay tour where we snorkeled with sea turtles, swam at Las Grits, and as well as seeing sea lions, iguanas.
