Galapagos Hotels

If you’re really not a sailor, there are a small number of high quality hotels that offer a bed that doesn’t move and day trips to nearby islands.  Many guests also choose to extend their stay in the Galapagos by adding a few nights at a Galapagos hotel at the end of a cruise – quite literally experiencing the best of both worlds.

Finch Bay


Location: Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos, Ecuador.
Favouring a modern design that incorporates the natural elements of the Galapagos, the Finch Bay Eco Hotel is the ideal alternative to a cruise for those who want to experience the islands’ wildlife wonders but prefer to sleep ashore.

This first class hotel sits on a quiet private beach across the bay from bustling town of Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island. It  offers 27 spacious rooms – six of them Ocean View Suites – a restaurant, indoor and poolside bars, comfortable lounge, outdoor jacuzzi and a large swimming pool that is sometimes visited by friendly herons and pelicans.  After a day’s exploration ashore or aboard the hotel yacht, swinging in your hammock looking out to sea from an Ocean View room is hard to beat!

Red Mangrove Aventura Lodge


Location: Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos, Ecuador.
The Red Mangrove Aventura Lodge is situated right on the water and close to the town of Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island. This Tourist Class hotel is an eco-friendly lodge that exudes a warm island ambience and has been designed to blend with the surrounding wild red mangroves. Simple white-washed rooms feature a décor of bright ‘sun-sea-earth’ colours and are distributed in two areas – standard rooms among the mangrove forest and superior rooms and suites, some with a private balcony, facing to the sea.
The delightful restaurant, offering a choice of Japanese or Galapagos fusion cuisine, looks out across the bay – and don’t be surprised to be sharing the wide elevated deck with basking sea lions and marine iguanas!

We will tailor the perfect holiday to suit your needs.
