About five years ago we went on a sailing holiday in the Adriatic to learn how to sail, and got stuck in a very bad storm. The last thing we wanted was to sleep aboard a boat (given its winter-ish). Finch bay gave us a hotel base, and a chance to go out to several of the little islands nearby...

Ecuador's Alex Quinonez may not have medaled in the Men's 200M final but Finch Bay Eco Hotel gets the gold in the Galapagos. We watched some of the summer Olympics with the loyal and devoted Finch Bay staff on our recent visit and their national pride spread past the charming media center - everything from the delectable and diverse restaurant...

This small hotel attracts Europeans and Americans with good reason. The rooms are comfortable with nightly turn down service, the evening meals are spectacular, and the amenities of pool, bar and beach are uncompromisingly top notch. The maid service is more assertive than just bed making and and a quick clean. If you come, please leave the maids a decent...

Stayed here for four days with another couple, where we were diving each day and only spent the evenings and mornings at the hotel. The hotel itself is gorgeous with superb service and has the best view in Puerto Ayora. The pool and beach were superb and we were lucky to use that for the one afternoon we were not...

We chose this hotel to relax in after our Peru and boat-based Galapagos tours. After a busy 2 1/2 weeks this was just the right antidote to all the travelling around. The ambience of the hotel was totally conducive to unwinding. Enjoyed the food, really liked the ocean view room, and thought the staff delightful and helpful.

I knew ahead of time my family had booked rooms here (we were a large group of almost 20) and my initial thought was as an "eco resort" it would be bare bones and very basic so it was lovely to find a really high quality resort in Finch Bay. It truly has the perfect combination of what you'd expect...
