We, 3 ladies from New York went to Galapagos for 6 days, the staying at Casa del Lago in Santa Cruz was more than excellent. Clean-neat rooms, fresh fruit juice with home made organic breakfast every morning was a delightful experience. The owner of the place has been a very well experienced tour guide who kindly booked our daily trips,...

While traveling with my sister, we stayed at Casa del Lago for 2 nights. Excellent experience in both the cafe and the hotel. Right next store is an amazing, peaceful lake for walking. One morning we saw a sea lion, puffer fish, and sleeping rays. The rooms were clean and architecturally interesting. Lots of smooth curves, playful light, and plants....

This place is a real oasis. Very warmly decorated rooms with air-con. Ours had a small kitchen with a very cold fridge, ideal for storing water & cokes. Lovely woman runs the place who has great stories which lift the curtain to reveal the human side of the Galapagos. No dinner after 7pm, but she did it for is anyway....

We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for our family to stay. We booked a suite where we stayed with our two teenage daughters. We could easily walk to many restaurants and shops as well as the harbor. The breakfasts were scrumptious. Our suite was charming. So delightful to stay in a place with character. And the innkeeper was...

Casa del Lago and owner Elena could not have been more perfect for our visit to the islands. With our two adult children we wanted a place close to town and yet where we could be a family. The Ninfa Suite was ideal. From the first contact, Elena was helpful and eager to make our vacation easy and enjoyable. We...

We needed a last minute place to stay one more night in Puerto Ayora. We walked up the day before we needed to check in to make a reservation and booked a room for $90. The price included breakfast, but we had to leave at 6:45am to catch the 7am ferry to San Cristobal Island. The hotel did not accommodate...

Unfortunately the accommodations at Casa del Lago were a little out of our budget as long term backpackers, but luckily it was a minute walk down the street from our hostel and so has become our breakfast and afternoon coffee and cake haunt.

We went to this restaurant for breakfast one morning on a friend's recommendation, and it was a terrible mistake. The place is cute and the food itself was decent, but our waitress was atrocious!

Ms. Elena Albarado is an artist singer and architect of this fine boutique hotel. She spent two years hand building the guest house herself. The four apartment suites are spacious and include kitchenettes with a mini fridge and small appliances. A comfortable stay for a night or as long as you like. This quiet hotel is a few blocks from...

“The "best" room is named "camera del Lago": 3 windows in 3 walls! Whow!! (fair price: US$ 30). Poor service and noise from trafic still remains.”
