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

This is the ideal place to chill out after a week on a boat cruising round the Galapagos. Lovely spacious rooms with views of the sea, good food, a lovely relaxing pool with visiting heron and duck for company. The small area of beach was taken over by locals at the weekend so we left it to them and stayed... More

My wife and myself visited the Galapagos for 5 days. Our land base was the Eco Finch Hotel. What a SUPERB Hotel and most important... STAFF ( Monica, Cesar, Alexandra, Kenia, Pepe, Toño, Soto...) every single member of the staff goes beyond their duty to make sure that you have a wonderful experience. Attention to detail is their core. Rooms... More

I stayed here for four nights as part of a tour. The hotel was clean and very comfortable and the service was outstanding. The food they served was exceptional. Every meal was a truly a gourmet experience. A few things you should know is that there are no televisions in any of the rooms. I know that no one chooses... More

Finch Bay offers a wonderful alternative to the live-aboard ship accommodation experience that proved to be perfect for my Mom and I on our recent visit to the Galapagos. They arranged excellent guided day tours on the island and provided fantastic support throughout our stay. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful and the accommodations were lovely.
