We stayed 2 nights here after our boat trip round some of the other Galapagos islands. It is a beautifully quiet and restful place. The Ocean View rooms have a nice balcony and have great views out over the bay and to the boats in Puerto Ayora harbour. The fact that you have to arrive by boat adds to the...

Finch Bay Eco Hotel is really a paradise in the paradise named Galapagos. The hotel provides great comfort (tasteful furnished rooms, hammocks, beach, pool, outdoor bar etc.) and personal service of very helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant offers excellent food in a cosy ambience. Finch Bay is a calm place to really relax and enjoy the enchanted atmosphere of...

This hotel is in a remote area with a good hiking trail around the corner. The little downtown is easily accessible by Finch Bay's water taxi. Book your excursions in the downtown area as the hotels prices are very high but probably because they use yachts to ferry you to island to island. The hotel rooms are standard and pretty...

The hotel is located in a very private remote area. To access the hotel you have to take a water taxi to the hotel. Once you arrive at the hotel we will be greeted by an amazing staff and a light snack. The hotel consists of a couple of rooms, which adds to the unique customer service provided by the...

I truly do not know why it took me sometime to write about this wonder, perhaps its charm is still overwhelming. I was lucky to handle a Corporate Social Responsibility project with some visionary enterprises that operates most of the scuba diving and cruises business in Galapagos Islands - Ecuador...my beloved country. This hotel offers a particular ocean views as...

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.
