Remember that one spring break back in college, when you and a bunch of buddies went to Fort Lauderdale? And you had booked the cheapest hotel in town, because you figured, hey, Iâ€™ll be too busy partying to care what the place looks like? And it had a pool, so how bad could it be? And you got there, and found a squarish, whitewashed place with flaking paint, tired-looking palm trees and cracked tiles that looked like it had weathered one hurricane too many?
Well, that hotel has been shipped brick-by-worn-out-brick down to the Galapagos, where it has been rebuilt and renamed the Ninfa. Right down to the sagging hammocks and broken pool table, itâ€™s all there.
Now, Iâ€™m not saying this is a bad place. On the contrary, by Galapagos standards, itâ€™s not a bad deal in the mid-price range. Iâ€™m just saying you shouldnâ€™t buy the â€śhigh-class luxury hotelâ€ť line that youâ€™ll get from their official websites and literature.
The pool is quite nice, and Hotel Ninfa is a good option for families on a budget. Itâ€™s well located, and the reception area is nice. Rooms have air conditioning and hot water.
The Ninfa owns a small ship and package tours are available.
