Concierge.com's insider take:

Any conscientious traveler knows a trip to Galápagos comes with a responsibility to leave as little a footprint as possible on the fragile islands. Guests can stay guilt-free and assured of their good stewardship in one of 27 rooms at Finch Bay Eco Resort housed in low-rise buildings connected by wooden walkways (so you don't trample the foliage) to the funky restaurant/bar and pool area. The camping-chic decor is really nondecor in the best sense—solid unvarnished wood furniture and earth-tone cotton textiles. It's just the basics here: comfy beds with cotton sheets and blankets, bamboo shades, jute rugs, and full bathrooms. AC is also available in certain rooms, and an ample breakfast buffet is included in rates. The best rooms are the six romance-inducing Ocean View rooms with private outdoor decks looking out onto the white-sand beach. While the raw wilderness of the Galápagos islands is not entirely welcoming to small children, the beach here is fronted by the kind of protected bay that moms dream about finding on vacation.—Cathay Che
