We stayed in the Finch Bay hotel in Puerto Ayora while visiting the Galapagos. The accommodation is very comfortable, with nice, clean rooms with air-conditioning. The breakfast and dinner were very tasty and pretty high quality. All the staff was very helpful and they are making sure you have a pleasant stay. My wife had her birthday and they made... More

I stepped back in time at Finch Bay Eco located on the Galapogos Islands. What an Amazing experience!! To get from Santa Cruz, the hotel has its own boat to transport, complimentary!! When you reach the island, you will be amazed at the beautiful scenery, the beach, breathtaking!! We were greeted by the awesome hotel staff, with a cool towel,... More

Since the moment you deplane and are met by the staff of the hotel that takes care of you luggage and you start your vacation to the inverse operation when you leave your stay in the Finch Eco Hotel is paradisiacal. All the staff is there to make you feel welcome. They will go the extra mile to take care... More

As newlyweds we spent our first few days in the Galapagos at the Finch Bay hotel. All of the staff made us feel really welcome and at ease. The pool was nearly ours alone during the day, and we took the opportunity to visit nearby towns, Tortuga Bay and Las Grietas by ourselves before embarking on a cruise around the... More

We booked the 8 day, 7 night all inclusive food and day trips package. Everything was truly unbelievable. We were met at the airport and taken to the first tour of the land tortoises. Our guide, Soto, was wonderful. Knowledgeable, patient, and fun. Whether touring by boat, by foot, or swimming, Soto was right there with us. Finch Bay is... More

My boyfriend and I just returned to the States after 8 days in the Galapagos. We spent four nights at Finch Bay and our only regret is not staying longer. We stayed 2 nights at Iguana Crossing in Isabaella (amazing) and 2 nights at Red Mangrove (Finch Bay is nicer). The rooms are exceptional, the food was the best on... More

On arriving, we were given a warm friendly welcome and after a short break we were shown to a very nice, well equipped room. The setting of the hotel is very nice. The pool and bar area have a clear view of the sea and the beach (which is public) can be accessed directly from the hotel grounds. To get... More

If your ideal hotel is one having tv and hi-fi, minibars and i-pod docks, morning newspapers, etc, this is definitely NOT for you. If on the other hand,a clean,modern room overlooking an unspoilt bay,with frigate birds circling, ducks and herons landing in the pool for a quick dip and iguanas in abundance ticks all your boxes, then this is the...

This is an unequivocal "5 star" rating. The hotel is intimate, modern and the service was impeccable. The lobby opens to the outdoors with plenty of comfortable seating for computer hook-up (there was no Wifi in the room until the last night). The adjacent dining room is formal though you can show up in casual clothes for meals especially breakfast... More
