The SOLYMAR hotel started it business as a need and request from the first scientists that traveled to the islands in order to work at the CHARLES DARWIN SCIENTIFIC STATION.
At that time, tourism at the island was scarce, but DON JIMMY PEREZ, had a clear vision about the potential of the islands and the strong ideal of sharing with others the peace and beauty that he had just found. He created the hotel as a place of informal hosting, turning a small warehouse into a simple but comfortable room with the best view that Port Ayora could offered.
As the time passed, and according to the increasing demand, other rooms were built, always full of visitors that truly appreciated the beauty of the landscape and the kindness of its people.
The restaurant was created under the same goal, to share with its customers and the Perez family the exquisite traditional food from Galapagos, in a familiar environment.
During those last years the SOLYMAR hotel suffered several improvements, but it was finally in January 2006, that it was totally rebuilt. The modifications were planed to fulfill the needs and demands of all passengers that were currently visiting the islands.
Today the new SOLYMAR hotel offers the same privileged location, 17 comfortable and functional rooms that will allow you to enjoy the most spectacular sea view, and facilities to help you admire amazing species. Our staff is group of wonderful persons.
We expect you, to be part of our history...
