I had a great time here! The food and faculty were amazing. I had trouble with my credit card on the island and Irene (one of the front desk women) went above and beyond helping me. I felt so welcomed here. I still keep in touch with multiple people I met at the hotel. It is a great hotel whether...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

I can't say anything bad about this hotel. The general manager was fantastic, the staff catered to our every whim, the tour guides took special care with my elderly mother, the bartender remembered your drinks, and the chef was AMAZING. They arrange all tours for you in their own private yacht...dream come true. You must come here

Very friendly staff, they take the trouble to learn your name. Good facilities - be aware the hotel can be reached only by water, which makes the place very cool. The hotel has its own water taxi and its own boat for tours around the islands. There are also water taxis from Puerto Ayra and back, for only 70 dollar...

After a week touring mainland Ecuador and other aboard a boat we wanted a respite from the early morning alarms. The attention to detail here made it for us. The staff mostly addressed us by name and made sure we got the most from our stay. It's accessed by a 5 minute water taxi ride, which adds to the charmThe...

Our family stays at Finch Bay for a few days each time we visit the Galapagos. The location is perfect, the beach & bay are lovely, lot's of wildlife, & friendly staff. The pool area is absolutely wonderful and the drinks & food, though expensive, are very nice. The sunsets are off-the-hook amazing and the organized excursions some of the...

Gate 1 booked our reservations with Finch Bay Resort and apparently part of the deal was that Finch Bay would provide local guides for our time in the Galapagos islands. This was our first trip to the Galapagos. If you're planning a trip, there are apparently several ways you can see the Galapagos, but seeing them by yourself is not...

Stayed here for 2 nights to get our land legs back after a 12 cruise around the Galapagos. First impressions are excellent, very welcoming staff and all looks good. Scratch beneath the surface and its not quite as good as it is made out. Shower rose was dirty and mould in the shower. The door didn't close properly. Maid entered...

We stayed at Finch Bay for a few nights of luxury after the trekking part of our holiday. The resort is very cleverly designed - low profile, blends in well with the surroundings, and lots of birds came to visit. The communal areas were lovely - pool and restaurant (plus there's an 'ice box' air con room if you're really...

Had a great stay here for six nights this month. The hotel is very well designed and organized with a great lay out. The main building is open plan and airy and looks out on to a fantastic pool often visited by herons and ducks. The rooms are situated amongst cacti and lovely natural ponds and are very comfortable.
