The Finch Bay hotel is an incredibly beautiful hotel situated on a lovely beach. It has the EcoHotel feel (although we didn't really understand what was so Eco about it), and the service was exceptional. BE WARNED- the hotel is situated outside of the town. It is necessary to take a short water taxi ride and then a 10 min... More

We just got back from a 7 night all inclusive stay at Finch Bay. We had four day-long tours on the Sea Lion. The accommodations were good and the staff were all excellent. If they could not help you, they found someone who could. Cesar, Pepe, and Joanna got to know our preferences and would bring us what we wanted... More

We booked our trip thru gate 1 travel 4 night package. 9 people in our group, upon arrival we were split up into 2 groups. 2 of our fellow travelers got to go on the sea lion boat and we were the sad sea finch. Pay attention!! Big difference for the same money. The boats are run by separate management... More

After much consideration, we opted to base ourselves at Finch Bay for our 5 night trip to the Galapagos, and we have no regrets. The hotel is lovely and peaceful, the room was a decent size and I liked the little touches like the hammock and free reusable water bottles. The staff really stood out for their helpfulness and service,... More

We stayed at the Finch BayEco Hotel for three nights last month. It was wonderful. Located on the water, just outside of the main harbor area of Puerto Ayora, the facilities were terrific. The hotel is modern and well-kept with a pool, bar and restaurant area that are open and welcoming. Our room itself had an ocean view from the... More

The hotel is beautiful and simple. I learned how excessive our lives are by staying here. At first I thought what are we going to do without a TV, but then quickly realized that we were so busy that we didn't need a TV. By the time we got back to the hotel in the evenings we were ready for... More

This is a nice place to stay for two or three nights before boarding a cruise ship. The rooms are comfortable, the meals are tasty, the staff is helpful, and the setting is a scenic cove. The hotel offers a shuttle to Puerto Ayora, but the town has little charm. However, there are two fun hikes: to Las Grietas, a... More
