Hotel SolyMar is centrally located in town, a short walk to restaurants and harbor, as well as Darwin research center and beach. The highlight for us was the oceanfront pool, which in addition to being a nice place for a dip, attracts all kinds of friendly wildlife. Herons and other birds, marine iguanas, and even a pair of sea lions show up to hang around the pool with you, which is a real kick to see up close. Only in Galapagos!
The oceanfront rooms have a small balcony, which is a nice spot to watch the moonlight on the ocean at nite, but not very private.

I made all reservations through Expedia and they allowed my first night in hotel to be cancelled. When the hotel notified me I immediately called Expedia and they did nothing, on the phone for 2 hours with Expedia, and they did nothing to remedy their mistake. I called the hotel in Ecuador myself, to reinstate the first night of our stay. It cost me a lot of frustration, a lot of time, and the expenses of overseas calls, but I got it done. Hotel was excellent, but Expedia took no action to remedy their mistake and did nothing, NOTHING to help us.

It was an amazing experience staying with Isabella lodge. The hotel is beautiful and comfortable, breakfast is delicious, and the private beach view is priceless. All the staff are super friendly, especially Maria, she is such a sweetheart, she helped us so much during our stay. We were leaving very early in the morning to catch the 5:30am in the last day, Maria packed breakfast for us the night before and sent to our room. Just cant say enough good things about this place.

The hotel was very beautiful and kept incredibly clean and tidy. The staff was more accommodating than anywhere I have ever stayed. They helped us plan out activities for each day and had a lot of great information about the island.

A beautifully and carefully decorated compound style hotel with great views over the bay. The room was very clean and the shower was beautiful.
They filter all their water so you can drink straight out the tap and we had a fridge, TV and air con in our room.
Breakfast was included and was a delicious bowl of fruit granola and yoghurt each morning followed by a delicious cooked breakfast made by the hosts - a different delicacy each morning. We had scrambled eggs with cheese empanadas, omelette, caramel toast.... and of course lots and lots of coffee and freshly squeezed juice each morning.
We borrowed snorkels from the hostel at no cost and even though check out was at 0900 no one bothered us at all - we left or room at 9 but chilled in the hammocks in the nice garden area before getting a taxi for our flight.
The communication before we arrived was great and the hosts would have met us at our arrival location if we hadn't changed our plans last minute to fly (rather than arrive by boat) - we didn't manage to get the message to them in time!
The best stay of our two week, 7 hotel trip.

Hotel has a great location, right at the end of the main street, close to a beach, port and everything. Staff very accomodating, served us with fresh juice upon arrival, changed our night without too much fuss. Rooms are ok, bed kind of hard. They have two pools, one more private, main one decent size, needed some cleaning maybe. Breakfast was very good, right outside with ocean view, crepes, eggs, fresh juice to name a few. A little pricey for me, but fair for what you get. Could use new A/C units, ours was loud. I would definitely recommend it, easy to walk everywhere.
