Stayed here for 3 days including 2 nights before exploring Galapagos Islands on the Yacht Isabela II for a number of days. This hotel was great. The food selections prepared daily were quite good especially in the morning and at dinner. The room was comfortable and a good nights rest enjoyed. The facilities were noticeably clean and in very welcoming... More

Great location on Santa Cruz Island but expensive and poor service. Hotel prices are high in the Galapagos but I expected more from the hotel. The staff is slow and indifferent, the rooms do not live up to the price level. The restaurant was ok, I do recommend the fish dishes.

You take a short boat ride (provided by the hotel) then about a 5 minute walk to the hotel. Very neat and clean and I personally like the fact that it is an eco hotel. Great rooms and they all have a hammock out front. Friendly staff. Their food is also great if you want to stay in for dinner... More

We decided that our preferred manner of visiting and exploring Galapagos should be by staying in a hotel and doing day trips to various islands, and thereby avoid sea sickness and cramped spaces in evening and at night. The hotel is absolutely excellent in terms of comfort, food, location, amenities and the day trips they arrange. We saw all the... More

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
