We chose the Finch Bay Hotel for our stay in Santa Cruz during a recent family vacation. This place is so special and exclusive from the moment you walk in. It is excluded from the noisy town of Puerto Ayora, and if you are looking for total relaxation this hotel delivers. The decor and landscaping with endemic plants is unique...

Both my husband and daughter get sea sick in a boat and the Finch Bay Eco Hotel was the perfect answer to visit the Galapagos Islands without having to stay in a cruise ship. The property is reached by a small ferry from Puerto Ayora. There are seal lions sleeping lazily on the dock. Then it is a short walk...

When we first got to the hotel, the receptionist said ¨Welcome to your home in Galapagos¨ and that´s the way we felt for the entire stay (5 days). The rooms were very confortable, the facilities are really great and the location is fabulous. But the best part of the hotel is the staff, from the manager Javier, all the way...

I stayed at the Finch Bay, last December 2016. I stayed 4 days, and I received a very good service. The view that you will have from here, especially at sunset or sunrise time is amazing. The rooms are nice. They have a small balcony with hammocks, yet at night there are mosquitos. The highlight is the Big 15 book...

First of all....be prepared to walk a mile just to reach the hotel. The walls are paper thin, you can hear everything and I mean EVERYTHING! Honeymooners beware! There is no TV in the room and no room service. One night we ordered chicken soup, it was cold and had no flavor. The cocktails were terrible and expensive! This Hotel...

We really liked Finch Bay. Service was excellent; food was above our expectations, and daily trips on hotel's boat are the must. However, if somebody is looking for typical "all inclusive" - Finch Bay is not such a place - it has much more to offer than sitting by the pool and sipping Martini.

Puerto Ayora is a very developed commercial tourist town and a bit of a shock after other sleepy Galapagos locations. Finch Bay hotel is out of town and gets away from the built-up area with a lovely beachside location. The bay in front gets very full of locals in the late afternoon and suffers a bit from seaweed and cloudy...

We stayed here on our honeymoon as we didn't want to do a cruise and spend the whole time living on a boat, but you do need to be able to visit the different islands by boat so this was the perfect choice. As well as strong ecological credentials – the hotel has recently won “South America’s leading green hotel”...
