We stayed 3 nights here and could quite easily have stayed longer if we did nt have more wonderful places to see in this beautiful country. The hotel is set in a secluded location apart from the daily visitors to Las Grietas, but this is not an issue. A two minute boat trip from Puerto Ayora and a 600m walk... More

First all of the travel and transfers from Ecuador to the airports, hotels, busses and boat rides were first class and amazingly organized. There is nothing more reassuring when you land in a foreign place and see someone holding a sign with your name on it. They gave us Finch Bay Hotel stickers to wear so their staff would see... More

We went to Santa Cruz a couple of days before our cruise to rest up from a fast hard tour in Peru and way to many hours in airports and aircraft. Our ocean view room really fit the bill. From the wildlife in the swimming pool to the delicious breakfast buffet it was great. We found that staying on land... More

The time I enjoyed at the Finch Bay Hotel was absolutely stellar. Situated right on the sea with a lovely little beach it brought us close to nature and enabled us to relax and restore. The rooms were lovely, the food was fresh, delicious and well prepared. The trips arranged to see the other Islands were top notch. Everything ran... More

The beautiful location of the Finch Bay Eco Hotel is only enhanced by its tasteful and comfortable rooms, delicious food, and excellent service. We greatly enjoyed our stay relaxing at the pool after a day of sight seeing, enjoying a beautiful sunset and sumptuous dinner. The day trips on the yacht which took us sight seeing on neighboring islands were... More

Very decent and clean installations, high standard restaurant, and a crew that never lets you down. Very good service inside and outside (cruises, visits, etc) the hotel. All perfectly timed and arranged, with breathtaking views and experiences.

We came to the hotel for 5 days to explore the Galápagos Islands. The excellent service and warm atmosphere of the hotel could only be exceeded by the amazing food that was served. The day trips to other island that we booked through the hotel were perfectly organized and very convenient. The team truly made our visit to the Galapagos... More

We stayed here for two nights after our Galapagos cruise, it had been recommended by our travel agency and friends of friends. We were not terribly impressed. Situation is good but the whole place is pretty basic but then it this is an Eco hotel! Not worth the amount we paid. We only had breakfast here, we ate dinner at... More

If you're planning a trip to Galapagos and you don't stay at the Finch Bay Eco Hotel you will definitely regret it! The Finch Bay Hotel is by far the best place to stay in all of Galapagos hands down. Nothing else even comes close to comparing to what the Finch Bay has to offer their guests. We won't stay... More
