Past Trips


Very good - we were met at the airport as promised and quickly transferred to our hotel room

What a hidden gem! My boyfriend and I stayed here for about 5 days over New Years and it was the most incredible place. If you are visiting The Galapagos and staying on land, you know you will be on the coast and in the water 90% of your time there. By staying at this hotel, we were not only able to see the highlands but truly experience it! The hotel is essentially a plantation. They grow their own pineapples, bananas and cacaos as well as make their own cheese and yogurt! This meant that every morning we had an amazing and delicious breakfast to energize our days (along with eggs, avocado, bread and anything else we wanted!). On days we had a super early start (and/or were running late), Marcia put our breakfast and coffees in to-go containers so we could eat on the way down to Puerto Ayora (Which is only about a 20 minute drive at $10-15 per ride). The room and property was immaculate - they clean and maintain every day and you'll see landscapers tidying up the trees and landscaping every morning. You will see some little (very slow moving) millipedes and cute little geckos, but for being so embedded in the highlands, we expected MUCH more critters, but that was it! The room was perfect. We woke up to dewy windows as the sun rose and had refreshing warm showers at the end of each highly active day. There is a beautiful pool and trails around the property which unfortunately we weren't able to use due to our busy schedule but could easily have spent an entire day just hanging out up there. At the end of every day, we would sit in the lodge where there would be music playing drinking wine and ironing out the details of the following day. Now, I could go on and on about Marcia - the hotel manager (and new friend!). If it weren't for her, our stay not only at the hotel but on the islands every day would have been so much more stressful. Every day, she coordinated a taxi for us (the same driver, Marco - who we loved!) to and from wherever our excursions took off from. She communicated regularly via Whatsapp to make sure we were okay and finding our way around. She coordinated amazing, fine dining dinners with the chef and even got us some Coke Zero from the shop for our stay and made me a delicious sandwich when the chef wasn't on the property. I can't speak highly enough about this hotel, Marcia, Mario and the entire Enchanted Galapagos Lodge family and I can only hope we visit The Galapagos again and get to stay at this amazing place. Book it now before word gets out about this place - trust me!
