We stayed here as part of a G Adventure Tour to the Galapagos. This is not a fancy hotel but it is clean, has a great location and the breakfast was included and really good. We could walk to restaurants and shops and the beach and it was a great place to get a decent sleep. We did not have...

Very basic hotel, good if you just need to stay somewhere for one night. If you are not a heavy sleeper I don't recommend staying here. We were up by 3:20 am thanks to the neighbour roosters that would not stop.

This is a nice hotel BUT we have been 'treated' to deafeningly loud music from mid-afternoon all through the night from an outdoor event grounds right opposite...even in the farthest away rooms you cannot hold a conversation, let alone sleep..absolutely AWFUL!!!!!!!!

This hotel was great, and close to everything! 2 blocks away from the water, so an easy walk any time of the day! Has a nice breakfast, fresh fruit, bread, eggs, coffee and juice. Small pool to cool off if needed.

The rooms and bathroom are large, nice, and look brand new (even though they are not). Everything was in perfect shape and super clean. Everyone we came in contact with at the Blue Marlin was very friendly and helpful. The small pool and lounge chairs were great for relaxing outside the room. The included breakfast was filling and tasty. I...

The Blue Marlin is in a great location in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno; close to restaurants, scuba/snorkeling shops and the shore. It's clean, safe and secure. The breakfast is ok too. Overall it's just what I'm looking for in a place that I need to sleep and store my stuff while traveling. If you go here, please do not stay in...

Very clean hotel; friendly staff; terrific air conditioning. Rooms were large. Breakfast included and was very good - lots of fresh fruit. I wish there was better wifi and better lighting in the courtyard at night but excellent place to stay. There is a pool which we didn't use. Very centrally located - easy walk to the main streets.

Quiet neighborhood (except the rooster outside our window - but I was so tired at night I never heard him). Excellent full breakfast. Very clean. There is a pool and hot tub but we did not use them. Sun chairs available - it rained everyday we were there so we did not use them. I stayed her as part of...

“Im sure the rooster problem is solved, but try to get a room on the right hand side when entering the hotel.”

“Presidential suite if you were there for a longer period however it is next to the street, so perhaps a little more noise.”

“There are only 4 rooms on the second floor, the rest are first floor. So if you don't like first floor rooms, probably ask ahead of time.”
