Property Details


If you were to list the Ecological Wonders of the Word, the Galápagos Islands would surely top the list. An archipelago of volcanic islands located in the Pacific Ocean just 900 kilometers from the west coast of South America, the islands constitute the Galápagos Province of Ecuador. Inspiring Charles Darwin’s “The Origin of Species,” it was the diverse wildlife he saw on these islands that was the stimulus for his Theory of Evolution. Now known around the world for its beauty and ecological diversity, it is a highly sought-after tourist destination.

With only three percent of the islands set aside for human settlement, the opportunity to own a business in this pristine and protected environment does not come around often, so we are pleased to offer for sale the business that owns the oceanfront Hotel Solymar in Puerto Ayora in the Santa Cruz Canton. With a history dating back 50+ years, hosting friends and visitors in this beautiful spot has been a tradition. Eventually, the original cabin made way for a larger, and more elegant, first-class hotel of 17 ocean-view guest rooms built in 2006. In 2011, the Isla Sol Tower consisting of 14 guest rooms was added. The restaurant offers a daily buffet-style breakfast to all its guests and visitors, and later in the day a variety of a la carte dishes are offered. The hotel has three modern event venues for social and corporate events accommodating between 85 and 100 guests each, and wifi is available throughout the hotel, making this the perfect destination for corporate and business conferences.

Situated on a 853.5 meter lot, Hotel Solymar enjoys Mediterranean style architectural design, and three levels including the terrace and pool area, consisting of 9,187 square feet. On the ground floor is the Reception Area, office, a large kitchen with exterior access, seven spacious guest rooms, and stairs to the top floor. On this upper level are another 10 roomy guest rooms. All the guest rooms in Solymar Hotel boast a full bathroom and closet, as well as, a private balcony with expansive sea views. The Terrace and outdoor spaces are impressive with an inviting swimming pool and Jacuzzi tub, poolside lounging areas, pool showers, and an enclosed guest dining room and bar with both outdoor and covered dining areas.

The latest addition to the property, on an 681.37 square meter lot, is the Isla Sol Tower, consisting of five levels including the terrace, resulting in 23,776 square feet of construction. Boasting a sophisticated, modern design, the ground floor of the Isla Sol Tower contains its Reception area, management office, lobby, kitchen, laundry, stairs to upper levels and an event room that can accommodate 25 people. The first floor consists of six guest rooms, and an office and storage area. The second floor has eight guest rooms and a manager’s suite. All the guest rooms have full bathrooms and a closet. The third floor contains two modern event rooms, holding 100 and 85 persons each. The terrace level enjoys a beautiful sea view.

Puerto Ayora is home to both the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galapagos National Park, and is the center of the Galapagos conservation efforts. Located on Charles Darwin Avenida, the hotel is near the walkable downtown Puerto Ayora which is filled with restaurants, tour companies, gift shops, clothing stores, marine stores, tourist shops and night clubs. This amazing hotel offers everything people flock to the Galápagos to experience!
