Testimonial

 

Wonderful Stay at Finch Bay!

“The staff went so far above and beyond to make our 10-year anniversary a memorable one.”

Stayed with my wife at Finch Bay for 4 nights as part of a Gate 1 tour of Ecuador and we could not have been happier! This hotel is absolutely wonderful. Rooms while a bit small were more than comfortable, we had one of the OV suites and it was great. the food is outstanding, they do an excellent job and there is plenty. Finally the staff, Cesar went so far above and beyond to make our 10-year anniversary a memorable one, I’m not sure we will ever top it! Want to give a huge shout out to the entire staff, but Cesar especially, THANK YOU.

You will not regret a stay here, the Galapagos are beautiful mysterious islands to explore, and Finch Bay is a great home base while you visit.
