Wonderful pool and pool area! Had a garden view room, close to pool and restaurant. Good beds, good bath, good AC, and safe. Impressive breakfast! Lots of families,... More

We are just home after spending the last three days of our holiday at the Finch Bay Eco hotel. It was wonderful and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. We were glad to have a few days to relax and recover from all our early mornings on the cruise and this was a great place to do it.... More

Finch Bay hotel is located across the bay in the town of Puerto Ayora, on Santa Cruz Island. You actually have to take a taxi boat from the main pier to the dock where the road starts and leads to the hotel. The fact that it is a bit removed from the center of the town makes the area where... More

Our family spent 4 days at this beautiful resort. Carlos and his staff were very good. The rooms were clean. They were very accommodating and made special arrangements to make sure we saw the highlights of these beautiful islands. Our guide was Mario and he made our day tours spectacular. His humor and knowledge made our days both enjoyable and... More

The effort and kindness of the staff and guides was extraordinary. The guides, Marco and Valentino were very knowledgeable and drew our kids in as we walked the islands. They were enthusiastic stewards to the islands and animals. After dinner, when we thought to tack on fishing trip to the end of the next day's boat tour - no problem!... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Finch Bay Hotel and it was amazing. The food, the tours and the service were top notch. Carlos is exceptional, his service and smile make you feel so special. He is ready to help with anything and everything. We can't say enough good things about him, he made our stay a 5 star.

My wife and I stayed at Finch Bay for the first leg of our trip to the Galapagos. The accommodations were incredible. Our ocean view room was in a spectacular spot and the hammock on the balcony was a nice touch. The staff was wonderful. Our package included dinner with a pre-fixed menu, but much of the food was seafood,... More

Finch Bay is run by Metropolitan Touring, one of the premier travel agencies in South America … especially in Ecuador/Galápagos. Like some other reviewer, came here to stay for a few days following a cruise on one of their boats (La Pinta), so expectations were high .. and were not only met, but exceeded. Transfer from boat-to-airport-to-bus-ferry-private transport-harbor-water tai-hotel was... More

We stayed 3 nights at the end of a cruise on the Xpedition ship which set our expectations very high for service. Our personal transfer driver from the hotel waited or us at the airport in Baltra as we returned from the ship. He had our bags ready to go. Completely seamless and stress free which is how the next... More
