The brand new Golden Bay Hotel brings an unprecedented level of comfort and modern design to the Galapagos island. Conveniently located near the airport, the resort offers family rooms that sleep five and have incredible views of the sea lions frolicking in the surf. The main restaurant serves a number of international delicacies prepared by an executive chef. A children’s menu is available and the Panoramic Terrace Snack Bar is perfect for hungry kids with a sweet tooth. Families should be sure to visit the giant tortoise breeding center and hike the scenic highlands. Tours are available from the resort.

My husband I stayed here on our recent vacation. The room, while not having anything extra, had everything we could need. The service, food and drinks were among the best I have ever had at a hotel--from offering to dry our wet suits for us, bring us a blanket during meals when it was chilly and anything else that we could possibly need. The fact that it is located across a little boardwalk from a beach that was constantly full of sea lions made this the perfect place for us!!!

I don’t mind paying for luxury hotels, but Golden Bay unfortunately ain’t one.
A room called “Partial Ocean View Room” has a view of a dump and some abandoned construction materials (see photo) - all of this for USD 480.99 per night.
Ants in the bathroom (already noted in other guests’ reviews), no kettle, no minibar, just a pretty bare room.
You can’t escape the feeling of being completely ripped off.
