Galapagos Dreams is a total scam. The hotel is filthy and disgusting. The rooms have bugs crawling around and the beds are hard as rocks and only twin mattresses pushed together. There is NO POOL and the WIFI is unusable!

Very friendly place to stay. Goes the extra mile to accommodate guest. Called a taxi for us the morning we left and told the driver where we needed to go, great service when visiting a location where we did not speak the language. Within 2 blocks from the wharf and some great restaurants.

Jonathan and the rest of the staff were all helpful and very well-organized. They helped us plan our 4-day stay on the Galapagos, including helping us book trips and lending us resources (such as wet suits and a GoPro) when needed. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with AC. Breakfast was simple but good. Thank you!
