          The hotel has the most unique architecture, right out of Dr. Seuss or Gaudi. Everywhere you look are whimsical mosaics and little staircases leading up to great views. Good breakfast, clean comfortable rooms, close enough to the Charles Darwin Ave. with all the shops and...More

          From the moment we entered Hotel Mainao we were awestruck by its beauty and charm. Family owned and run, this quaint B&B was super. We had a simple room with a shared balcony area, no TV and no phone and LOVED it. No luxury here,...More

          Would be a five star review if the location was a bit better. Nothing wrong but no view of the sea. Easy stroll to lots of restaurants and bars. Breakfast good and typical of South America Hotel staff very friendly and helpful.

          The location is not perfect - you will enjoy sea-view only in the upper floors, therefore ask for it. The breakfast is ok but it could be richer if we think of all the food-treasures on these islands. But the staff is very friendly and...More

          The Mainao is a very average tourist class hotel. If you're expecting luxury or anything beyond the level of a clean Motel 6 or Travelodge, don't book this place. Our room was small, had no view whatsoever and was extremely basic. The beds were comfortable...More
