If you are visiting the Galapagos Islands it is a great idea to spend some time on Santa Cruz Island. This is why we have prepared a list of all the Santa Cruz Island hotels and a descriptive page for each and we include reviews from real travellers. We also list contact information so you can book direct.

Royal Palm

Via Baltra, km 18
Puerto Ayora - Isla Santa Cruz
Galapagos Islands - Ecuador
20-minute drive from Puerto Ayora

The Royal Palm is a unique secluded hide-a-way nestled in the lush highlands of Santa Cruz Island in the heart of the Galapagos. Designed and crafted to complement our natural environment, the Royal Palm offers a spacious and exclusive paradise. The hotel and its landscaped gardens, pool and outdoor Jacuzzis are surrounded by the natural beauty of the hotel’s 190 hectare (480 acres) of private estate adjoining the Galapagos National Park. The largest accessible lava tunnel on the Island is also found here.

Located

The Royal Palm Hotel is located in the lush Miconia Highland Forests adjacent to the Galapagos National Park of Santa Cruz and equidistant from Baltra Airport and the main town, Puerto Ayora (about 25 mins). Our spacious villas nestle in the secluded 150 hectare private estate. You are surrounded by indigenous fern and forest; no neighbors; no traffic, no aircraft, no pollution... just flora and fauna; you can hear the silence. Five-star in the Galapagos is not necessarily like five-star in other, more developed countries; the level of sophistication is perhaps different to what you are used to. At times it can be frustrating; the whole island is only connected by “satellite” which means that the Internet for example, can be a bit intermittent. The force of Mother Nature in the sub-tropics can take its toll on the environment and our hotel building and grounds, so our maintenance program runs constantly. We ask for your understanding when some areas of our beautiful estate look a bit “weather-beaten.” There are multiple micro-climates and these eco systems can change the weather quite suddenly. When it is hot and sunny on the coast, it can be cool, over-cast and sometimes misty in the highlands. This is not your typical, laid-back beach holiday. To visit the Galapagos takes effort and determination but the reward is a life-enriching adventure experience!

Accommodation

The Royal Palm Hotel offers a select choice of very spacious accommodation which includes:

1 Large deluxe 2-bedroom Villa - The Prince of Wales

2 Large deluxe open-plan Villas - The Royal Villa and The Presidential Villa

All the rooms are well appointed with custom-made furnishings and floors of mahogany wood with super-comfortable beds and the finest linens. Our rooms have everything you would expect a property of this distinction to offer including free Wi-Fi, desk, LCD flat screen TVs with 15 satellite channels, minibar, tea & coffee making facilities, safe, air-conditioning, iron and board, hairdryer and the Villas all have a private Jacuzzi room.
