Stayed at Finch Bay for two nights after spending 8 days cruising the islands (see my review on the Anahi yacht). Off the beaten path, you take a water taxi for a few minutes to a shared pier, and then walk about 10 minutes down a path. Then, there it is! a lovely hotel. I spent a lot of time...

This hotel is good....not great. I arrived on Dec 29th and found that my reservation was missing. They blamed Expedia and told me that there wasn't a room available on the 31st (New Years Eve!). I was offered a room that the workers use for $180 per night, which was 100% unacceptable for anyone traveling from the U.S. that expects...

We recently had a two night stay at this very pretty place. It was part of a land/sea Galapagos tour. The front desk was very knowledgable and helpful regarding their ability to coordinate with our tour company for departures and our itinerary while there. There was no charge for towels, (and they were plush and plentiful) or the pool for...

Finch Bay is a great place to use as a base to explore the Galapagos Island. The rooms are very modern and well designed. The resort is a great place to return to after a day of exploring the islands. The food is good, not great, but you don't go to the Galapagos for the food. I must say the...
