These are small wooden chalets right by the sea. They are simple but fit this quiet, unspoiled location very well. There are chairs outside each chalet to sit and watch the sunset. Breakfast is of good quality and consists of a variety of local products. It is served outside under a canopy. I stayed as part of a group.

This hotel is very simple, but the setting is second to none. Beautiful sunsets abound if you are lucky. The accommodation consists of quaint little cabins. They are simplistic, yet rustic. A safe is included in the rooms as well as a hairdryer. There is no wifi, but that is expected on an island with a population of just 150.... More

Wow! What an incredible experience! The cabins are a bit off the main road, and they are right on the water, facing the sunset! You can drink the water, and there is free wi-fi all over the island, and you can enjoy those benefits here! Each cabin looks out onto the water, and there is a black sand beach just... More

The island of Floreana has approximately 120 inhabitants, so don't expect luxury here. However, this is what makes this island and hotel so wonderful. There is no TV or WiFi because the hotel is run off of solar power. Turn off the fan or A/C and open the doors & window wide to allow the soothing sea breeze to lull... More

This is all about the experience. The Floreana Lava Lodge is a group of very rustic wooden cabins including wooden floors with twin beds. Each includes a private facility including shower. There are window air conditioning units but the cross ventilation works even better. And besides, who would want to cramoflgue the sound of the surf just a few yards... More

A beautiful setting, a row of wooden huts along a boardwalk right by the rocky shore. For weary travelers, this was like camping, which is OK if one is prepared for it.The one overhead light didn't work when we arrived just as it got dark. Although there was a window A/C, there was not adequate electricity to run it. The... More

A complete highlight to our trip in Ecuador was the two nights we spent at Lava Lodge with host and owner Claudio Cruz. The accommodations are rustic - but it's really all you need because you spent most of your time outside exploring the delights of the sparsely populated Floreana island. Claudio was such an engaging host - but speaks... More

What a great little lodge. The cabins are small but cozy. They only have twin beds, but they are still comfortable. The best part is that there is nothing around them. At night we had they best view of stars that we have seen anywhere. In the morning we went on a walk along the rocky shore and saw 6... More

I did not want to leave this place! I was part of a tour group which traveled here for one night. I could have spent a week here, relaxing, hiking, snorkeling and taking photographs. It was amazing. The cabins are small but so comfortable and i had a great night sleep to the sounds and smell of the near by... More

A basic hut with twin beds, a small bathroom, a/c and fan (although we preferred to leave the windows open and let the sea breeze and nature sounds blow through) and a single chair out front from which you can enjoy the view. It was very nice to awake to the sound of waves and then walk down the wooden... More
