The hotel didn’t mention that we have to have a 4 days Covid test to the Galápagos Islands not the 10 days Covid test requirement to enter Ecuador. So we didn’t know about this, our Covid test was 6 days ago.

Bait and switch. We arrived after a live aboard yacht trip and did not have the ocean view room I booked on Expedia. Finch Bay was rude about it. I would have booked another hotel had I known. This was the end of a “make a wish trip”. They gave us a garden view room that was very small, much smaller than my room at home; nothing special here. No hot water, found that out when I was in the shower. My husband called and they turned it on. They do not replenish toilet paper, apparently, found that out with just s few sheets left on the roll. Got eaten alive by mosquitoes at dinner; no mention of preventing that from the wait staff. I do not have mosquitoes where I live. Food was very very overpriced. I dine out regularly in Santa Barbara, California and it doesn’t cost this much. I woke up the last morning asphyxiated by some chemical they sprayed outside my room that night. Also, the last night I woke up to a disgusting smell of nasty dirty feet where my face rested on the duvet, I almost threw up. Apparently they do not wash the insert. Communication was very poor among the front desk. For example, one instance they told us to leave our luggage out on the porch at 7 am upon departure after check out. We did and our luggage didn’t show up at the water taxi. We had to wait awhile an cut it very close for our flight. The breakfast was excellent. Otherwise I am very underwhelmed and extremely disappointed at the last leg of what was an amazing trip.
