A very good location, as you’d cross the street in front of the hotel and you’re right at the next beach. Our kids and others have been swimming with a little sea lion precisely at that stretch of the beach. Coming from Floreana Island, we felt like in a first class hotel when we checked into the rooms. That aside,...

Tried to stay 4 nights but could only get 2 nights as hotel deservedly popular, It is right on the beach with great views. On arrival reception has 2 computers for use, the wall to the beach is all glass so great views even while internetting. The girl on reception spoke good English (not common here) and was very helpful....

This hotel is on the beach in Puerto Villamil, Ecuador. It is extremely clean and well run, with a nice breakfast. It also has a small pool which is a great place to cool off after all your excursions to nearby sights---such as the salt water marsh with Flamingos, and the Tortoise research center, which is walking distance. There are...

We are seniors and found this to be such a special place. The room had a king bed and the bathroom had double sinks. The TV reception is pretty bad but they have DVDs at the front. So we took some and just changed the language to English. We forgot my little purse in a bag the guide was taking...

We stayed here for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. Our second floor room was spacious, clean and cool. Sitting on our balcony enjoying the view and the sunsets was awesome. Loved being so close to town and the beach. Great breakfast. Helpful, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend staying here. We even enjoyed the soccer games that were sometimes...

We moved here after fleeing Hotel San Vincente. The charming manager Carlos made our stay really special. We had the best room at the far end of the upper floor.

Very good place, stunning sea view ideal to enjoy 😊 your stay in Issabela. The receptionist Natalia was smart and kind, giving us a lot of useful information and getting us in touch with her friend Fernando who organized all our stay in Quito and Otavalo.
