Rooms are cleaned every morning. We normally service all rooms while you are enjoying your outing, but if for some reason you decide to stay, we will not disturb you.
All rooms are fan and air conditioned. To accomplish our initiative of efficiently using the energy source, we kindly ask our guests to keep the windows shut while the unit is operating.
Please ensure that all windows and doors are shut before operating A/C.
The water from taps is NOT drinkable so we advise our guests only to drink water from the dispensers located in the communal area.
The shower in your room is equipped with dual controls, for both hot and cold water. Since we live on an island fresh water is scarce, so water conservation is always a concern of us. Whenever possible, please save it.
All electrical outlets in your room are 110V. We use the American two pin flat plug. If you require 220V please ask at the reception. The Hotel owns an emergency electric plant that will activate automatically in case of power failure. Electricity is in Galápagos provided by diesel generators. Therefore, to minimize a negative impact on the environment we kindly ask you to help us save energy.
