A nice little bit of relaxation can be had here. Rooms are well appointed, the local birding is great. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We very much enjoyed using this property as a base for visiting Santa Cruz.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in January with the Land/Sea package included in our stay. The oceanview room was absolutely splendid with full view of the beach and enough trees for privacy. The decor here is coastal modern with minimal decor, which was wonderful. There isn't a tv in any room (they have a media room... More

I'm so bummed that our trip to the Galapagos is over, and Finch Bay is one of the reasons it was so fantastic. The hotel itself is clean, modern, and just generally has a good vibe. The food definitely exceeded my already high expectations - though we tried other restaurants in Puerto Ayora, my husband and I both agreed that... More
