The owners have put much care and attention into building an excellent inn. The attention to the details inside the rooms was outstanding. We stayed in the huge Ocean Breeze room which had an unparalleled view of the bay. The restaurant area at the waterfront offered nice views of the harbor.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner (although we didn't know it) who turned us over to a very friendly staff. We were a large group and the staff seemed to have trouble getting the right luggage to the right rooms. Also, the rooms vary in size, view and quality. We were a large group and we had all... More

We booked this hotel through the Andean Discovery Galapagos Islands Tour. Again, Damon from Andean didn't disappoint in his hotel selections! You take a 2 minute water taxi ride to/from the main entrance to town (Puerto Ayora), which our kids loved. This hotel is right on the water, as is their restaurant. We watched sea turtles and sea lions swim... More

This charming waterfront hotel in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz was outstanding. Simple, sweet, waterfront charm. The restaurant overlooks the port where you can eat a fabulous breakfast or enjoy a drink from the bar and watch the boats come and go, which is both relaxing and entertaining. This hotel has nice rooms. Most do not have a view, but... More

We were at the Angermeyer for 3 nights during our Galapagos trip. First night was when we dropped off the Galapagos Sky and stayed in the Geko room very wide but no view, just to move to Isabela the day after. We left one of our heavy bags with the diving gear to be picked up in part two of... More

Stepping from the panga boat to the dock after a long trip from the US to the Galapagos,the Angermeyer was a haven of peace, calm and beauty. We were welcomed to this pristine paradise by polite staff and a cool drink. The Angermeyer Waterfront is immaculate, a beautiful whitewashed collection of cottages. The rooms are spacious, the beds very comfortable... More

Angermeyer was our base for our Galapagos exploration, and was fairly conveniently located to the main area of Puerto Ayora. It is set across the water, reachable by a couple-minute water taxi ride, and the water taxis run all day and night. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. They were kind enough to loan us some aloe vera when... More

I think this is the most special place on the island. The views from the restaurant are breathtaking with boats in the harbor, the drinks and food are good as well. We would love to come back again, and this time we did and were not disappointed!

I recently spent time in the Galapagos Islands doing a land-based tour. My friend and I stayed two nights here. It is reached by water taxi from the dock at Puerto Ayora, and has a lovely restaurant and sitting area on the water (FYI, no beach). The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms super clean and comfy, and the... More

This hotel is comfortable not luxurious but in a nice location on the harbor. The best part is the pretty restaurant on the water with the bar. It has a yacht club feel. The rooms are clean and fine but not amazing. Water pressure was substandard, etc. I would say that the Finch Bay Hotel is the nicest on the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated right at the waterfront, which provides a splendid view of the bay and the interior of the island of Santa Cruz – as well as a convenient place for taking a swim. The final phase of construction was finished in 2009, and our hotel is a natural first-choice for quality travellers. A short 100 meter walk along a path takes you to a small beach. There is an ocean view from 13 of the 16 rooms. Due to the restrictions of the National Park it is not possible to walk to the hotel. Instead it can easily be reached by a 2-minute water-taxi ride right to our door. We have a beautiful wooden deck built out over the water where we serve lunches as well as dinner by candlelight. From the deck we often see sea turtles, sea lions and iguanas swimming past. Pelicans, frigate birds and blue-footed boobies are always our visitors. We offer full bar service as well. ... more   less
