Hotel Galápagos

Welcome to Hotel Solymar´s Website!

Renato y Jimmy PerezDon Jimmy Perez (founder) and his son, Renato Perez (current owner) on old Hotel Solymar’s front deckWe have designed this website so that our guests may experience the true essence of Hotel Solymar and the Galapagos Islands.

The Hotel Solymar is the only upscale hotel owned and operated by Galapagueños. My father, a Galapagos tourism pioneer and legend, Jimmy Perez, opened the hotel in 1960 with eight rooms. It was later completely renovated in 2007 to bring the capacity to 17 rooms with ocean front views. We are centrally located in town and are located on Academy Bay with views of the ocean. As former guides, we know our Islands intimately and can assist our guests with their travel plans, whether your desires be to kayak with sea lions or hike through the highlands to encounter the famous giant tortoises.

Our staff speaks English, Spanish and Hebrew. We hail from Galapagos, Columbia, mainland Ecuador, Israel and United States. With our diverse international staff we are proud to provide a level of hospitality and guest service that keeps guests returning year after year.

We look forward to welcoming you soon at Hotel Solymar - Galapagos!
