We spent 4days-3-nights after our 5-day, 4-night Cruz on La Pinta Ship that was fabulous. It was great to have 3-nights to chill, relax and rest up before our long flight back to Los Angeles. (18) hours! This hotel has terrific hospitality, the pool is nice and the location is secluded, a short skiff ride from town on their private... More

We spent four days and three nights on the island. We understood that this was the nicest accommodations on the island. While it did not meet American standards as a four or five star hotel, the service and the food were spot on. The rooms were small but clean and adequate after a day full of activity. The bathrooms were... More

My husband and I spent 3 days and 2 nights here in April. We had a Garden View room with a double bed and it was very clean and comfortable. The hotel was not luxurious by any means, however it's the Galapagos and that was not the purpose of our stay. I have no doubt that this was probably the... More

This is a beautiful comfortable hotel in a very convenient location for exploring the Galápagos Islands. I have never seen such attentive service by an entire staff and the manager. The food was excellent and it is a quick, inexpensive boat taxi ride from Porta Yora which is big enough to satisfy most shopping requirements.

As part of a Gate 1 tour, we stayed three nights at this hotel. The location is stunning and the atmosphere so relaxing. Our room was smallish, but has everything we needed -no TV! Our side there was a balcony with a hammock, and at beach level, there were lots of comfy chairs, a bar, pool and never ending coffee... More

The best cocktail I had in Galapagos. The view is wonderful and relaxing, ducks like to share the pool too. The nicest hotel in Galapagos by far. If you need to unwind go sit by the poll and get a drink at least

We recently stayed at the Finch Bay Eco Hotel with our 2 daughters ages 8 and 3 and had an excellent stay. The property was right on the beach which was great for the kids.

We had a wonder experience at Finch Bay. We traveled as a family group of 8 people (youngest 8 years oldest 71). The Finch Bay staff (especially Tito) were warm, gracious, and always helpful, even to the children. Dinning was an easy fun experience and they accommodated our special requests on several occasions. The rooms were comfortable and the cleaning... More

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
