Rooms were well air conditioned and breakfast was fair. It starts early so you have plenty of time to catch your tours. Beds are fairly spacious.
Staff is super unfriendly and cold, there are no smiles or help to be had here! We felt like we only met glares. Shower is fickle, there is rarely hot water. There is also no security box in the room. Unlike other hotels we stayed at on the islands, there is no water refill station, so you will need to purchase bottled water everyday, which can quickly add up and is (a liter of water is about $1.50), and it’s bad for the environment.
The price was rather good.
The standard room (bed in particular) is not very comfortable.
The localization was very good: we had a small market very close, the pier close and several restaurants options; Pool: it has a pool and a hot tub that add a "relax" moment to our trip; Service: they storage our luggage until thew check-in time and as soon the room was ready they allowed us to access the room (1 hour before) Breakfast: really, really good breakfast. Room: good beds, good space and good air-conditioning.
Travel agency: they have a travel agency that was HORRIBLE with me. A old lady (I don't know her name, she was grey haired) made me fell stupid several times and lied. I got into Ninfa Tours agency and I requested to book two tours and pay with credit card, she was nice and said yes and in the moment I was ready to pay she said the system was "out" and ask me to pay one of the tours in cash. I did it and she said to me to be back by noon to pay in credit card... guess what: the agency was closed in the time she aligned. I did come back several times and every time I found her she was "awkward" and said the system was still out and asked to be back in another time and the store was CLOSED AGAIN. Eventually I gave up, but she lied three times just to not receive this payment through credit card (this is usual in Galapagos). Shower: the heat system is integrated with the hot tub, so many times the water was TOO HOT (burning) and I needed to request to cold down (it takes ~20min). Security: the hotel is always open and with full access for anyone who want to get in. Since the rooms are in the ground floor and with an open window to the shared areas... it makes me fell insecure.
Beds were comfortable and the room was large. Front desk person was very helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast food was good and the seating area was nice. The location was good.
The location was great close to the ferry! They had a great breakfast with eggs juice coffee bread fruit meat. Best part was free bikes to ride, we took it to Tortuga bay, saved us some effort in walking there.
Very little space for a family of 4, no counter top table to keep any of our stuff. NO views atleast we did not get any even though we had asked for, not sure if other rooms had any views.
With a stay at Hotel Ninfa, you'll be centrally located in Puerto Ayora, steps from Galapagos National Park and Malecon. Featured amenities include a business center, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
