Dear Samantha7, thank you very much for contact us. In reference to your question, the water we offer to our guests is purified water, in fact we have our own water treatment plant, so we are fully supplied with purified water to drink and to cook the food we prepare for our guests. We apply high standards of food safety and quality so we consider that we offer the best product on the island.
We hope you decide to visit us and you can delight in any of our meals. Again we thank you for your interest, have a wonderful day.

How thorough and complete is the natural experience on the islands? How does the experience compare with a Galapagos cruise?

Depending on your interest and if wildlife is your priority, then you could pack a bit more on a cruise, so long as it provides a good itinerary (itineraries are, contrary to popular belief, not SET but APPROVED by the National Park. Try to find itineraries with a large yield of iconic species, such as the BIG15). Cruises include two islands per day, with a short sailing distance between the two. Day tours that depart from the populated islands, include one island per day. However, if you stick to a hotel-based programme, and include sites like Bartolome (with Sullivan Bay), North Seymour (with Las Bachas), Santa Fe, you can easily cross off 12 BIG15 species without having slept a single night on board a vessel. Also this is the ideal option for families with children that would like to avoid stay on board of a cruise, and if you suffer seasickness this is also the best option for you! Also if you need to combine and to match different interests in your party (in ex: one person would like to scuba dive and the rest of the family is interested in yacht tours and some snorkeling, since they are not divers, at the Finch Bay Hotel we can match their interests and offer all of them the perfect option for each person) we can do that and offer different type of programs for the whole party. Interesting fact: often times you may come across albatrosses between Santa Cruz and Santa Fe -- that is more than 80 percent of the most relevant BIG15. The most important species you would miss out on are: Flightless cormorant (only in the west of Isabela and all Fernandina), Red Footed Boobies (only found on Genovesa and in the eastern tip of San Cristobal) and Galapagos Albatrosses (only nesting in Española, but occasionally seen flying between islands). A big plus, however: you get a schedule that is not as uptight as it is on the vessels, along with the freedom to visit a town at night if that interest you, or perhaps you would also like to rest by the pool or stroll along a glorious beach at night under the stars. Most important: at the Finch Bay Hotel there will be no rolling or pitching to keep you awake at night.

What is the smoking policy at the hotel, and around town?
Javier Gからの返信 | 施設の代表者 |
Hi, good morning! There's a smoking area at the pool bar and also some outdoor tables by the pool side. The rest of the public areas of the hotel, and the rooms/suites, are non-smoking.
Best regards, Finch Bay Hotel team.-
