The hotel took care of us waiting for the ship to return that night for my family. We missed a flight out of Miami due to weather and got a day behind on our island adventure. We were traveling Linbald Expeditions which I highly recommend for the islands or any of their expeditions. We were suppose to board the boat...

As the other reviews point out is a bit of an expedition to get here from the airport involving a bus ride,ferry,pick up truck and finally the Finch Bay water taxi followed by a 5-10 minute walk .Luckily the boat dropped us off at the pier and then went round to the beach abd dropped our cases there-all very efficiently...

The most impressive thing about this resort is the way its employees make you feel at home. Tito, the general manager, was warm and friendly and very accommodating. Very special place. I will miss truly miss the people and the hotel. Rooms=not luxury but very nice/comfortable. As Roberta said, no t.v. but you won't miss it. Great bar. Excellent food....

This was a lovely beach hotel and the views from the pool looking @ the beach and the Pacific Ocean were beautiful. Surprisingly, the food was FABULOUS; really gourmet!!! It is eco-friendly, so forget about bath amenities (gels, moisteurizer, etc.) Rooms were nice enough, but no TV. My husband & I would definitely recommend this place. roberta f.

this is what I would describe as a 4* hotel but at nearly 5* prices. It may be the only hotel in Galapagos on a beach, but that beach gets crowded with noisy local families at weekends. It is OK but nothing special really. Breakfast is good. You share it with the finches that fly in to help themselves to...

Just returned from an incredible week at Finch Bay Eco Hotel on Santa Cruz Island. We were so hot and tired after a flight from Quito, then a bus ride from the Baltra Airport, ferry ride to Santa Cruz Island, van to Puerto Ayora, and panga ride to Finch Bay. By the time we reached the hotel, we were sweaty...

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...
