Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel
Excellent standards without the big price tag
Our rating: Premium | Property style: Lodge
One of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, the Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel is your base for exploring the Galapagos, whether you are island hopping or taking a cruise. Located on the beachfront of southern Santa Cruz Island, the four-star eco-hotel offers rooms and suites with a neutral palette to match the natural and peaceful setting. With just 27 rooms (6 are beachfront) and its own private beach, it provides an intimate and relaxing option in town. Ocean views are provided in some rooms, but the best views come from the wooden walkways which wind through the Galapagos greenery. The restaurant uses only fresh and sustainable ingredients for its Ecuadorian and international dishes. Only a few steps from the lodge are the waters of the Pacific Ocean and mangrove forests making snorkelling and surfing excursions easy to organise independently. The excursions arranged by the hotel however are top-notch as they have their own yacht, diving equipment and expert guides allowing you to make the most of these incredible islands without venturing too far from the hotel. Other activities include cycling and hiking.
