This hotel is just a few miles north of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, where you can find the island’s small collection of restaurants and shops. Lots of people come here to leave for unforgettable diving trips to nearby sites like Kicker Rock. This area is known for its huge population of marine wildlife. Venture farther afield to places like Española Island to go bird watching and have a look at native species of hummingbirds and finches.
Out of concern for the delicate Galápagos environment, the hotel is run with the help of environmentally friendly equipment and horticulture. The hotel’s garden also cultivates plants that tortoises like to much on. Although plenty of consideration has gone into blending with the local ecosystem, you can still look forward to private bathrooms with hot water — something that’s not always a given in this remote part of the world.
All of the rooms have big windows that can let in a nice ocean breeze, although there’s also air conditioning if you’d prefer. Terraces on the property have lovely views, of either the garden or the ocean view. You’ll have flat-screen cable TVs and Wi-Fi to keep you entertained.
There’s a communal table set up in the garden — enjoy a cup of quality coffee or a sip of fresh juice. Have a nap or unwind with a book with in the hammocks. The garden provides fresh fruits and vegetables for the kitchen, which you can sample at the daily breakfast buffet..
Amazing location, close to food, they also had amazing breakfast and the hosts were great. We felt very welcomed!!
