Solymar Hotel

Located in Puerto Ayora, capital of Santa Cruz, at the Waterfront and close to the tourist district.

The Sol y Mar Hotel is a top-class vibrant hotel, located at the beautiful waterfront of Santa Cruz Island. The Hotel Sol y Mar is the only upscale hotel owned and operated by Galapagueños.

The Hotel was opened in 1960 with eight rooms by tourism pioneer and legend Jimmy Perez. In 2007, it was renovated and the capacity was extended to 17 rooms, with marvelous views of the waterfront.

The hotel’s location is another plus for the guests. It is situated in the center of Puerto Ayora on Academic Bay, which provides a spectacular view of the ocean. The staff is a professional team of former tour guides who speak Spanish, English, and Hebrew. They will be more than happy to provide their guests with valuable travel information.

With its diverse, international staff, the Hotel is proud to provide a level of hospitality and guest service that keeps guests returning year after year.
