The hotel is in a very quiet area with no noise, lots of nature, and the sea almost in front of your room. The staff takes care of every detail, so, staying at the hotel is a pleasure. Breakfast is excellent and the restaurant offers "gourmet" meals. The daily yacht excursions to different islands are very well organized, in safety...

We spent 2 nights in mid June prior to a cruise. The ocean view room was great and was a wonderful respite after 11 days of travel. The staff was very helpful in coordinating a Highlands tour and transfers to and from Baltra. The food at the restaurant was excellent and service was always spot on. We found the hotel's...

Loved this hotel. Decent sized rooms, great swimming pool, big enough to swim in, plentiful breakfast and delightful location. Loved having to do the gentle walk past the beach and iguanas to get to the taxi boat for the short ride to the town. We took a boat ride each day to see different islands, go snorkelling and followed advise...

This hotel is a charming hideaway where you are a part of nature. The food was excellent, and the staff was friendly and helpful. In fact, I dropped a necklace into the sink, and they managed to get it out and return it to me. Our daily trips were great fun as well, seeing the flora and fauna and snorkeling...

What a wonderful place. Nice rooms: no TV, radio, clock - get away from it all. Food very good, but if you're allergic to shellfish it accompanies many dishes w/o being listed on menu. Ask. Nature guides great.

This hotel is heavenly. It's calm and peaceful. The staff are extremely helpful and the food is lovely. Even though you have to get to the hotel by boat, it is very pain free and the hotel staff help with the bags. Well worth a visit

We had our wedding ceremony here at the Finch Bay Eco Hotel. The experience was excellently pleasant and positive from the beginning to the end. The manager Carlos was exceptionally professional and helped us out a lot -he also "hosted" our simple little ceremony (not a legal marriage) and he did a wonderful job :-) The hotel itself is beautiful,...

we travelled with two young children, during the Galapagos busy season, so we were happy to find availability online for a sea view room about two months ahead of our stay. Less than two hours after booking that, we got an e-mail from Mr. Benitez, the hotel manager telling us that there has been a problem with the booking system...

We spent three nights at Finch Bay after our cruise around the Galapagos Islands. Having taken the water taxi we were met by a hotel employee who transported our bags whilst we made the 5 minute walk to the hotel. We were allocated a sea view room which was very spacious and extremely comfortable. The hammock on the balcony was...
