We stayed at finch bay for 5 days and did several tours to the Galapagos. Amazing place. Great hotel, restaurant on premises serves great food. A must do. They have a beautiful pool, small beach and boardwalks leading to all their rooms.

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”...

Our family enjoyed a fantastic vacation at Finch Bay. Now that we've been to the Galapagos, we discovered that our full week at Finch Bay was longer than what most tourists do. That said, we loved it, and found the Finch Bay touring itinerary to be extremely well done. We opted for Finch Bay's Beta Itinerary which took us to...

Wonderful excursions, beautiful location, helpful staff, and delicious food. Each island that we went to was different and interesting. The snorkeling was out of this world. Wish I could have been there a year, not four days.
