Galapagos Suites is the best budget hotel option in Puerto Ayora offering great value compared to the many others we visited. On our last trip to Puerto Ayora, we stayed in 8 different hotels, and we had our best nights sleep here of all the hotels, some of which cost 4 times as much as Galapagos Suites! Galapagos Suites is owned by Joseline Rhor who opened the hotel in 2009 together with her daughter Joseline Cardoso, a Galapagos guide. Both have worked in tourism for many years and they offer excellent personalised service, with strong ethics and excellent environmental credentials. The hotel has clean, bright and airy rooms that are tastefully decorated, each with a private balcony, adorned with a colourful hammock.
4 spacious ensuite rooms each with a private balcony, air conditioning, living area and television. The room on the top floor has ocean views from the balcony.
Continental breakfast is served downstairs for guests each morning. Within the town of Puerto Ayora there are a host of great places to eat covering a whole range of budgets.
Within easy access of all that Santa Cruz Island and Puerto Ayora has to offer, from the Charles Darwin Research Station, to kayaking, to Giant Tortoises in the wild, to scuba diving and forests of giant daisies. If you have several free days in Puerto Ayora, we definatley recommend having one of those days with one of our team of top bilingual Galapagos National Park guides who will really ensure you get the most out of your time, however there are plenty of things to do on your own on Santa Cruz Island.
