2. Galapagos Habitat by Eco Luxury Group 3* – Eco Friendly Hotels Galapagos
On a bay overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this understated lodging with lush surroundings is a 10-minute walk from Charles Darwin Research Station and 5 km from Tortuga Bay.
Located among mangroves, minimalist rooms have wood-slatted ceilings and Wi-Fi, along with cable TV, air-conditioning and safes. Upgraded rooms have balconies and ocean views, and suites add sitting areas.
There’s a casual bar, and a relaxed restaurant on the waterfront. Other amenities include mangrove forests, an outdoor pool and a dive shop.
he setting is sort of jungle eco-lodge with an assortment of rooms on the ground and second floors. The air conditioning worked well and the showers were nice too. There is a small mini fridge with a limited selection of drinks and snacks which are complimentary. If you want more, then you are charged.
My room was next to the sun deck that has been appropriated by the sea lions, which made sure I did not miss a moment of Galapagos daylight by announcing their presence at around 6:30am each morning. The sea lions are so prevalent that the room across from me had a sea lion that would lay right outside their door, which made coming and going a bit tricky at times. Personally I enjoyed the local fauna, iguanas are abundant too. The staff was friendly and helpful, when they can be.
I found the restaurant food excellent with good variety and the water views are lovely. I especially liked the Blackberry daiquiris and all the fun weird fruit juices at breakfast.
The hotel is a lovely eco lodge as you can see from the pictures on their website. There restaurant was great. We ate a number of meals there and they were extremely good and the prices were very reasonable. But the real story is how wonderful the staff is. The hotel staff are very, very friendly and genuine. The go way out of their way to ensure that the atmosphere was warm and inviting and your stay is great.
This hotel is an eco hotel in the Galapagos Islands.
The rooms are simply furnished and elegant but definitely not plush luxury. I think they suit their location extremely well. The bathrooms are supplied with L’occitane products and have the best water pressure of any hotel I’ve ever stayed in.
The hotel comes with sea-lions, red crabs and marine iguanas on their own deck (suitably separated from the paying guests by a low fence). They are noisy at times and smell a bit, but it’s the Galapagos, that’s what you’re there for.
It is built in a mangrove forest at the edge of town so it’s quiet and there is an element of earthiness to the place.
This is a most interesting and unique hotel.
In the southeastern corner of Puerto Ayora a wooden boardwalk leads you into the mangroves, romantically lit at night, where the unique rooms of the two story, eco–friendly, Red Mangrove Lodge have been created. Each room is unique – ours was bright, spacious, clean, good hot shower, air conditioners, and an ample private terrace. We stayed a week.
The lounge boasts beautiful views of the bay and an outdoor patio that is home to marine iguanas, sea lions, seals, pelicans, crabs, and finches. In this nature environment you will need to adjust to strange noises of creatures and dropping branches and seeds during the night, and unusual odours from the mangrove waters.

The hotel is beautiful, very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Eco friendly and carbon neutral.
Our room was spacious and had a garden/mountain view. The bathroom and dressing room were large and there was a separate seating area. The weather was very mixed when we were staying so we didn’t really get to make the most of our terrace, but it was also spacious.
The communal areas were, as the rooms, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Pretty much every part of the hotel has a spectacular view.
-Take a hat and eco-friendly sunblock with you!!!! The UV rays there are intense! I forgot my hat and had to ask the hotel for one before I turned into ashes!
-Take comfy sneakers, shorts, short and long-sleeve tees and swimsuits! (This I did. Thank God!)
-Order your vegan/vegetarian options ahead of time
-Watch the Galapagos documentary the hotel offers every night in their movie room. It will leave you speechless and teach you things about Galapagos, Darwin’s theories, and the animals you probably never imagined! Watch it prior to the excursions to know what to expect.
