We stayed 5 nights at this hotel. It was clean, comfortable and the food was delicious. The swimming pool was clean and surprisingly warm! Getting there seems like a bit of hassle initially but it isn't a real issue. You have to take a water taxi to get to the town but it's only a few minutes away. Make sure...

The best part of Finch Bay has to be the food! The morning buffets are plentiful with a large selection of breads, fruits, cereal/yogurt, and hot food items that range from your typical morning pancakes and sausages to things like rice and shrimp. Every dinner we had was also spectacular. We did a 4 night, 5 day program and every...

Good hotel with view over the ocean and friendly, professional staff. Breakfast buffet offered a wide variety of food so as lunch. Good cocktails but average wine selection. We stayed the first night in a garden view room which was extremely small, dark and loud: you could hear the neighbours next door. The ocean view room was much larger and...

Every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. The daily boat tours are outstanding, the guides excellent, and the meals at the hotel are gourmet, every day. The hotel staff are friendly, efficient, and very service oriented.

We stayed at Finch Bay for two nights following an excellent 8-day Galapagos cruise. We liked the location, just a short boat ride from the village, which may be convenient if you want to relax after a cruise, but not that much if you intend to explore the surroundings, as you are always depending on transport. Even if we enjoyed...

Finch Bay gives those of us with seasickness a way to see Santa Cruz, and three additional islands, all while sleeping in very comfortable on-land rooms at night. Hotel itself is very pretty, on a fairly busy beach, and service/food was impeccable. Day trips with local guide were mostly excellent. We had a substitute guide one day and that was...

The pool and pool bar are the highlight of this hotel. They are beautiful, tranquil and close to nature. The food and service at this hotel is also excellent, staff were friendly and breakfast delicious. The only problem for us was the rooms, they are pretty basic - not as luxurious as I would expect for the price. The rooms...
