My daughter and I stayed at the Finch Bay hotel last week for 3 nights and were treated extremely well. We checked out several other hotels while we were there and nothing compares. The food and especially the fresh fruits at breakfast are fantastic. The tour guides were knowledgable and friendly. The air conditioning in the room worked well, and... More

I stayed at the Finch Bay for 3 nights after a Galapagos island cruise. It is difficult to fault this hotel. You get to it by a water taxi from Puerto Ayora either the free ones run by the hotel or a general one at 50 cents a time. You can ask reception to call the free taxi when you... More

I and my husband spent 10 days in the Finch Bay Hotel in December 2004 and loved every minute of it! Loved its unique location, very friendly and helpful staff, wide choice of activities, excellent food, comfortable rooms. It's the best place to stay in Galapagos!

I cannot praise the staff of the Finch Bay Hotel too highly for making our stay such a success. My husband and I made several day trips to the wonderful islands, which were organised by the hotel. They even got up at 4.30am to give just the 2 of us breakfast for a very early departure. The hotel is small... More
