It truly has the perfect combination of what you'd expect...

If you are used to the very luxorious hotel as myself that this one is almost loxurious. But it appears that their intention is not to compete with luxorious hotels. This hotel is simple nice and small eco hotel. For Galapagos this is very good standard as there are no big well known hotel names. But it better stay so...

Finch Bay is most definitely the nicest hotel in the Galapagos and most likely in Ecuador, certainly out of the ones that I stayed in. I went there with my Mother for a few days and we had a beautiful relaxing time. The location is great, across the water in a part of Puerto Ayora where there are no cars...

Everything about this hotel experience was great. Staff learned our names immediately and were so friendly,helpful and gracious. Rooms were clean and had all we needed. We had a garden room with front porch and hammock and less then a minute walk for an ocean view. The dining experience was great....food presentation and taste were equivalent to 5 star restaurant....

WOW, what a place! My friend and I met several giant land iguanas before we even stepped onto the boardwalk which stretches across the private beach on the way to the hotel.
