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...

If the Galapagos Islands are a Natural Wonderland, considered by many (and me too) a true Paradise on earth; the Finch Bay Eco-Hotel is a Paradise within Paradise....!!! The location is stunning in itself, quietly tucked seaside, right by a small bay of calm waters and surrounded by natural gardens that privilege the native plants, flowers and natural elements.

After some days in lazy calm Isabela we arrvied back to Puerto Ayora and its hectic boat taxi activity. The Finch Bay Hotel is also more frentic, upscale, big with a large professional structure, Well-trained employees, courtesy all-around, clean rooms, all that for expensive $720 / night (2+1). The breakfast is very bug, those that inlcude a noontime meal in...
