Hotel Solymar, Puerto Ayora
Great hotel and location
Very helpful and welcoming staff. All rooms face Academy Bay with great views. They even held a bag for us while we were on a live-aboard for a week, before our stay at Solymar. Wendy the sea lion was a welcome distraction when she visited, but I wish the bar staff had stopped guests from harassing her, cornering her on the patio, and chasing her to the stairs where she made a get away. People brought over lounge chair cushions and delicious capairinas that were well worth the 2 for 1 price, but be warned that the price goes up $1 during happy hour. The location on the main street between the pier and the Darwin Institute is ideal, and only a couple streets from Los Kioskos food vendor street. We stayed here and at another more expensive, Red Mangrove, and enjoyed Solymar much more.

Hotel Solymar - Great Location, Staff, and more...
The only thing that bothered us was being put in a room at the end of the hall across from the breakfast area. You couldn't open your blinds or people could see in while they were eating breakfast. The kitchen staff would wake us when setting up at 6:00 am. Other than that - great hotel, location, service, and staff.

Galapagos delight!
Close enough to nature? Sea Lions lazing on the deck, swimming in the pool, competing for your chaise lounge! Our room had a balcony overlooking the pool area in the foreground, ocean to the horizon - as far as the eye could see. To the left; the Charles Darwin Center a short walk. Best place to stay in Puerto Ayora!!

Nice enough base in Puerto Ayora
A clean and accommodating hotel centrally located on Ch Darwin, near travel agencies and other tourist resources. Not quite a luxury hotel by usual standards, but good enough. Very helpful staff with limited English can help with ordinary requests. Has a nice and well located pool by the Bay.
