Nice location. But bit quite types, not so crowded. Not a place for guys who are looking for happening parties. Ideal for tranquil lovers. Quite descent place.

I had read that the rooms not on the beach side were terrible - but my room was perfect. I was in the building across the road from the main building, facing the lagoon, and it was great. I had a bed, and shower with hot water, and everything I needed for my stay. This is not a restaurant, it... More

It's tough to beat live music right on the beach. That plus the crowd is unique, the staff is really friendly and the drinks always taste good. We watched a band that was here on vacation (ie...not here to play music) play for 2 hours. Locals from the crowd were popping on and off the stage to play an instrument... More

We came for coffee and stayed for beer! Our first interaction was with the owner, Beto (he was bar tending). He quickly became our local insider for what to do and where to eat around town. We went back later that night and they had a DJ, he said some nights they have live music which we were bummed we... More

The beach bar right on the sand is the place for sunset happy hour 5-7 pm. The iguanas that hang out here during the day before this bar opens kind of split during this time. Good vibe & a good mix between locals & tourists.

You amble over golden sands towards the chilled-out music, take a weight off your feet on one of the funky wooden seats, a guy wanders over with a pretty extensive menu, and you sip your beer or cocktail watching the sea and the iguanas and wonder whether you shouldn't decamp to the hammock for a more relaxed perspective. Idyllic. It's... More

The location alone makes Beto's Beach Bar a great place to hang out after a day's adventures. It's also a great place to watch the sun set while sitting beachfront, cool drink in hand.

Beto's (he is the owner) motto - Good Music, Great Atmosphere, Nice People, Endemic Drinks. Spend any time in the Galapagos and you will repeatedly hear about Endemic Flora and Fauna - at some point you just need an Endemic Drink and this is the place. Beto mixes them up with fresh squeezed juice and great care. The space and... More

We were enjoying some beers watching the sunset over the ocean and enjoying the awesome tunes blaring out of the bar when the tunes stopped. We thought they were changing the cd but when we turned around to get another beer everyone was gone and the bar was shut. This was at 6.30pm. Odd. Great location, cold drinks, great tunes... More
