An amazing stay, one of my favorites Hotels worldwide. For the location, walking through nature till you get there arriving right on the beach. Excellent service with a peaceful ambience. Delicious breakfast, even with green and healthy options. Priceless sunrise view from the rooms to the sunsets by the pool. Exquisite Cuisine and great cocktails at the bar. Definitely heaven...

The ground of the hotels are fantastic, the pool, the location, the open areas make it for a fantastic stay. The rooms are relatively small but nice and very clean. They organized tours that are very well done and some of the staff is super friendly especially at the bar area. The only improvement could be the breakfast which was...

Arriving at Finch Bay Hotel, our first impression was to be at a nice 4 stars. Great staff and a designish lobby. However, things drastically changed when we got to our room. Small, not functional and underwhelming. The worst part is the bathroom. Old looking, with white and dirty tiles and door, a shower and a sink that look like...

My daughters and I stayed at Finch Bay for only two nights (Christmas Eve/Christmas Night 2016) and we did not want to leave. The facility is perfect - up to date modern, lovely lobby decor, pretty and comfortable rooms and bathrooms. The balcony was peaceful with a hammock. The pool deck is clean clean clean and relaxing. The Christmas Eve...

Staying at the Finch Bay was truly a delight! I stayed for 3 nights with 3 of my girlfriends and we couldn't have been happier with our choice.

Stayed for four nights at Finch Bay as part of our honeymoon. It was a little confusing as we arrived (by boat from San Cristobal island) as we didn't realise we needed to get a water taxi over to another bay to get to the hotel. Once we managed to find out from a policeman in broken Spanglish, we were...

We cannot possibly say enough about this hotel, and specifically their staff…. our experience was AMAZING. We booked an 8 day / 7 night package for our honeymoon in November 2016. From the first day, many of the staff knew our names and were very cordial. It really felt like home-away-from-home…. But in paradise. The first recommendation – do the...

After 14 day Galapagos cruise we stayed at the Finch. It was a wonderful end to a wonderful trip. Our room was comfortable and clear and the staff very attentive. Their water taxi service was extremely helpful. Highly recommend a stay as the last resort before heading home.

Finch Bay Resort was home to myself and three girlfriends during our exploration of the Galapagos.
