    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
    • Disliked: Room comfort

    Very small room. Poor WiFi. Price too high. Very very basic. No TV.

    Simple and Comfortable with Beautiful People

    Wonderful! Elizabeth and their family were so kind, the homemade breakfasts in the center garden were lovely. Don't come here expecting hotel branded, plastic wrapped, toiletries with items to buy- remember why you came to visit the island. Simple, minimal, needs met with fridge, air conditioning, private room and bathroom, with a 5 minute walk to the beach. Loved my stay!!!


      Decent hotel on Isabela. Breakfast does take a while to be served so remember to account for that in the morning (food is good though!).

      5/5 Excellent

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

      Clean and charming!

      Had a great stay! The hotel was clean and charming. There was hot showers, hammocks, free wifi, and the free breakfast was huge. The family that ran the place was very sweet and I would stay here again. About a 5 min walk to the beach and you can rent a bike dirt cheep and ride to the national park in 10 min or 10 min bike ride to the turtle center. Something to know: There is no ATM on Isabella Island and pretty much everywhere is cash only so make sure to bring cash.

      Lovely place to stay.

      We stayed 2 nights here. It's a lovely place to stay. Our room was a nice size with a double and single bed. Bathroom had a huge shower with plenty of hot water and was very clean. The staff were lovely, limited English but we managed and they served a beautiful breakfast in the garden of fresh fruit & eggs, tea/coffee. We can't fault this place at all. Great place to stay.
