This is a terrific little family run hotel in Puerto Ayora. Close enough to everything but not in the middle of it all. Easy three to five minute stroll to shops, restaurants, the pier. Breakfast was amazing! Made to order eggs, lots of great fruit, breads, coffee, had and cheese. The pool was pristine and warm. The owners welcomed us...

The bed is comfy, and the wifi reasonably fast (fast enough to write this review). You can hire snorkeling equipment (3$ a day for fins). However, I would book this...

It's also very well located in a quite area which is close to most tourist agencies and transportation. My main drawback is that the rooms are so close that...

Hotel Santa Fe is a relatively small property located only a few blocks from the downtown area in Puerto Ayora. The hotel is quiet and extremely clean. The owners pay attention to the smallest detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I would be very pleased to stay at the Santa Fe again.

Rooms were nice and clean, and the location provided nice amenities such as beach towels for day use on request, and they had a community area stocked withe coffee and tea. Also they provided free cold water so you didn't need to buy bottled water if you have something like a camel back. The staff were very good at letting...
