Golden Bay Hotel

Golden Bay Hotel

Golden Bay Galapagos is situated in privileged location on the Playa de Oro (Golden Beach) on San Cristobal Island, directly in front of the sea, where sea lions, blue-footed boobies, and other animal citizens of Galapagos are seen. We are the only hotel on the island registered and approved by Ecuador’s Ministry of Tourism and awarded five stars.

We are located less than ten minutes from the archipelago’s best airport, with daily flights from Quito and Guayaquil. Furthermore, San Cristobal is well connected with the other islands, by flight and by sea, for those who wish stress-free interisland travel.

We offer 19 rooms which permit our guests the possibility to feel themselves a part of the earthly paradise in a magical environment and in high standards of quality while inside the planet’s most famous national park.

Our style is based on the concept of “Luxury without Ostentation.” We create an environment of absolute comfort under international standards of hygiene and presentation, uniting a familiar amiability with “galapagueña” soul. The experience we offer is unique to the smallest details, from our artisan breakfast to our cocktail garnishes made from seasonal island flowers, herbs, and fruits.

MUYU is our restaurant, a pioneer project of restoration in Galapagos, always “evolving.” Its mission is to bring a real Galapagos experience to your plate, using the best seasonal organic products from the farm, forest, and sea with tropical esthetic.

An artisan breakfast that includes marmalades, pastries, naturally fermented bread, seasonal fruits, local farm cheese, our homemade granola, and many other options. Ours is a distinct experience from the standard continental breakfast offered to tourists. We offer only the best of Galapagos, from the farm, forest, and sea for our guests who love good food.

Swimming Pool

After a grand stroll with the sealions and still wishing to enjoy the water but in a quieter environment, you can enjoy our pool located in the interior garden.


It’s worth mentioning that Galapagos is an ideal destination for disconnecting oneself from the overwhelming daily routine and for the grand and unique nature that awaits, but technology has its limitations.

The archipelago is not connected by fiber optic technology. Satellite internet service is the only available option, and we feel obligated to let our guests know that internet speed does not compare to that available on the continent.
