Being built atop a popular convenience store, Galapagos Sunset Hotel is about to join the accommodation scene on San Cristobal Island.
Located almost immediately in front of the tourist pier, the hotel will have 9 rooms, with most having waterfront views. Compact, but smartly done, look for the fun waterfall feature in one of their front windows near the reception.
Each room will be equipped with a microwave, mini bar and sink for the convenience of warming up some of your own meals, and keeping a stash of cold drinks readily available. Good sized flat screen TVs will also be among the amenities in each room. Testing out the double-paned glass sliding doors proved that they’ve done a smart job sound proofing the rooms as well, so you’ll enjoy a good sleep.
A nice bonus is that the balconies are spacious enough to enjoy the great sunset views or try to spot some golden rays in the water at night. With a rooftop bar and small restaurant (serving breakfast for guests), it should also become a popular spot for late afternoon drinks in Puerto Baqeurizo Moreno.
The new Galapagos Sunset hotel is scheduled to open by Christmas 2015.
