Mixed feelings I'm afraid. The location is fabulous and the hotel is worth going to just for that. We were in a garden room which was small, though comfortable and fine for us. The service was OK [some very good staff members] and the food overpriced and not great. The exception to this was breakfast which was very good and... More

The bar service is a delight and the meals are all delicious fine cuisine thanks to their highly classically trained food and beverage staff. My husband got Travelers Intestinal Illness our... More

Aside from a few small issues (one unhelpful front desk member), this stay was fantastic. Incredibly good breakfast. More than substantial room. Gorgeous facilities. A step above anything else we saw in the Galapagos. Enjoyed a very good dinner at the hotel as well. Tito in particular was exceptional in suggesting some last minute ideas for itinerary changes. The hotel... More

Wonderful stay at this true luxury eco lodge. I asked for a tour of the facility to see just how "eco " they are, amazing...everything is reused, recycled, treated, laundry is dried in the sun, They purify their water and offer both flat and sparkling with every meal. Food is wonderful, fresh, delicious and the presentation is beautiful. Everyone takes... More

My husband and I stayed at the Finch Bay Inn for our 5 th wedding anniversary. The room was very clean, comfortable and luxurious. After a day of activities it was great to come back to a HOT shower. All the staff was very professional and friendly. There was a hammock on the porch to relax in, so cool! The... More

I recently had the opportunity to spend three nights at this hotel as part of a tour package. The beautiful landscaping, the spacious rooms, and the wonderful food made these three nights a great experience. We were especially impressed with the staff who went out of their way to make my cousin's birthday a special day. They surprised her with... More

We had read reviews before we booked and were surprised that nearly all of them were good which is a rare find so we booked .... and we were not disappointed! The place is so beautifully landscaped and spaced out nicely, the beach in front of the hotel is top notch! Wow, we were so taken with the place that... More

Well, for the beginning it is NOT an eco lodge, it is a wannabe Luxury Hotel, especially if we look at the prices they charge for simple stuff. For example, a beer or a cup of espresso cost much more than in Quito for example Unfortunately, the Hotel keeps all the ceremonies of a Luxury Hotel, while loosing the essence.... More

From the moment you board the little boat in the pretty harbour that takes you to the hotel to when you depart, you are in "Service Heaven" . Tito, Carlos, Cesar & Fabricio expertly make you feel you are important and valued as a guest. They know everyone's name, take time to chat and they're very attentive especially if you're... More

We returned in October to Finch Bay for our 4th visit. It was as fantastic as ever and the staff (some old and some new) were as friendly and helpful as ever - they even remembered us from our last visit 4 1/2 years ago. Unfortunately, Tito was away in Quito on business so we weren't able to catch up... More
