Isamar Hotel is a small and very friendly property right on a snow-white beach on Isabela Island in the Galápagos.
Just a five-minute walk from the centre of Puerto Villamil and its low-key - but welcoming - cafés, bars and shops, this good quality property also has a superb position right on the town's beautiful white sand beach. The hotel's ten rooms are housed in five single storey blocks with an almost a cottagey feel and the staff are friendly and eager to please.
At the front of the property is a pleasant decking area with tables, chairs and loungers giving guests the opportunity to enjoy relaxing in the sea breeze. Isabela's Tortoise Breeding Centre and flamingo lagoon are within relatively easy walking distance, as is 'Iguana crossing' - a specific spot where these fascinating and unique reptiles make their way between the warm brackish lagoon waters and the cooler nutrient-rich ocean. Activities such as snorkelling and kayaking can be organised from the hotel.
