We stayed at Casa Opuntia on San Cristobal for just one night after a few days on Santa Cruz (Puerto Ayora) and a 7 day naturalist cruise on MY Grace, before returning home. Our cruise ended at San Cristobal - the other cruise passengers were going direct to the airport, all to have layovers at Quito or Guayaquil on their...

We stayed here as part of our tour with G Adventures. We stayed for 2 nights. The view is spectacular from the outdoor dining area. I spent my mornings watching the sunrise with a cup of their fresh coffee available in the outdoor area where they had a water cooler and a refrigerator of cervezas and sodas (using the honesty...

Nice hotel. Great location. Friendly staff. Close to sea lions and the harbor. Breakfast buffet. Laundry service available which is a plys after a seven day cruise. Would definitely go back. Great base for exploring San Cristobal and Kicker Rock.

Although location was good, room left lot to be desired. Plaster was peeling off the walls, mildew above bed where picture frame was. When asked if another room was available, was quickly told no other rooms available. Food was decent and view from eating area very nice. All in all, you could do better!
