Very helpful and professional staff!
We loved our stay here! Hotel staff was very friendly and professional. They went out of their way to make sure everything was comfortable and helped us to plan out our activities. Even after we checked out they let us store our luggage and gave us recommendations for lunch and activities before our afternoon ferry.

Great little boutique hotel
Great little boutique hotel. Really enjoyed our stay there. Hana the manager was fantastic with helping us out with site seeing. Great quiet clean room with a great breakfast. Also a great coffee machine and drinking water filtration system. I don't know why more people don't just fly to Santa Cruz and and do day trips around the island. You don't have to take an $5000 cruise. We say 8 of the big 15 animals just walking around here.

Great boutique hotel in heart of puerto ayora
Would def recommend Cucuve Suites. Was comfortable and the staff helped answer many questions and give us recommendations of the local area. Coffee and snacks were available 24/7 which was a nice touch. The only thing we didn’t love was it could be noisy at night - lots of dogs barking and a couple nights the noise woke us. Still would recommend overall and consider staying there again.
