Our group had both seaview and garden rooms and all three were very smart, well designed, immaculately clean and very comfortable with hammocks on the fronts or balconies and nice ensutie shower rooms. The lunch and evening menus were varied and the food delicious. In the evening there is a set meal or a la carte and the poolside bar... More

Stayed here as part of an Adventures by Disney tour with wife and 10 year old daughter. Simple, perfectly adequate air conditioned rooms. We had an ocean view room with two queens overlooking the water. Hammock on verandah, great sunrises. Beach was lovely but public (not that it mattered). Pool and pool bar nicely situated by beach. Service was really... More

This hotel, really doesn't embrace the island. Even though it's pitched as eco it doesn't feel like it. Big group trips and kids clubs by the pool. Cheesy American cruiseships staff greet you. If your looking for style, class and to emmerse yourself in the culture and animals of Galapogos this isn't the one. The room quality is also lacking.

Went there with all my family from London and we had an amazing time! The hotel is perfect! Without hesitation I will stay there if I ever go back to this amazing place. The single best thing of this hotel is the location. You are walking distance from all the action but at the same time you are not bang... More

My family and I just returned from an 8 day/7 night stay at Finch Bay. We had a terrific time and it exceeded our expectations. The excursions were well planned with many amenities/courtesies extended along the way. Our guide, Soto, was fantastic and I highly recommend using him. Extremely knowledgeable, excellent English, and an all-around great guy. He knows exactly... More

We had a very pleasant time at Finch Bay Hotel. We was in touch with a very kind staff and enjoyed a tasteful and fine cuisine. The view is superb and the place is peaceful! I strongly recommend it if you want to have a great experience in Galapagos

We booked a year in advance and came with high expectations. Goodness, those were far outstripped! Superbly located with the most genuine, welcoming and friendly staff, our stay here couldn't have been better. We came here looking for a relaxing holiday with the most memorable wildlife encounters. Each day, we were out on the hotel yacht, the Sea Lion, where... More

We (two adults and two children aged 7, 9) stayed here for a five days / four nights. We had a very nice Ocean View Suite with double queen beds. We slept one adult with one child in each bed and this worked out fine. The hotel and room facilities are charming with a nice pool and everything very eco-friendly.... More

This place is absolutely serene and the only sounds are made by the waves of the ocean and the occasional flyovers of the birds. The beaches in Ecuador are all open to the public and the locals usually will come in by water taxi on weekends. The best time is to take a stroll before or after breakfast when the... More

We choose the Eco lodge for 5 nights as we wanted to stay in one place and do yacht trips and we were glad we did. The service was excellent and the location is beautiful. The days out on the sea lion were wonderful-great weather, food and of course the spectacular marine and wild life of the Galapagos. As we... More
