The rooms at this lodge are basic, but they are clean. There is no television, and none of our group could connect to the WiFi. (Who goes to the Galapagos to watch TV or use WiFi anyway?) The best feature of this hotel is its location - right on a beautiful beach.

We stayed here with family and friends and it was great! The hotel is right on the beach so the kids can play and look for sea life. We had coffee outside on the deck and walked the beach in the mornings, then enjoyed cocktails in the evening. The location is great- a short walk into town and to the... More

We stayed here as part of a tour. The activities included in the tour were fantastic but we found the Red mangrove company was quite disorganised. For example, we had to get new wetsuits and snorkelling equipment each day which not only wasted time but there was huge differences in the quality of equipment. We also had to change guides...

We enjoyed the tour and the guide. Simple hotel. We got a load of washing done and they charged is us $100! A great way to ensure we won't be back. Ignore the offer and go down the road! It will cost $10 and you are not going to get ripped off.

Stayed on our honeymoon. Comfortable and clean with wifi. Food choice was limited but it didn't matter because the food was great. Great tours from this location and easy access to the sea front. Literally 10 meters away. Quiet and relaxing lodge. Recommended.
