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

This place really is a treasure! Small well kept huts on the beach! The breakfast is served in a covered outdoor area with views across the pacific. I really was very impressed with the quality of these little huts. This Island is completely worth the journey, unspoilt, unpretentious and beautiful. We ate with the owner on one evening! The snorkling... More

The cabins are delightful and the location is incredible! Waking up to see sea turtles popping their heads above the water and Galápagos penguins fishing was just paradise. The cabins are clean and the beds comfy. The breakfast was delicious and although the tree tomato juice wasn't to my taste it's great to have so much local food on offer!

Floreana is heaven, Lava Lodge is heaven on heaven. Early morning swim with sea lions and turtles after the best sleep ever is heavenly. The owner/manager Claudio Cruz is a hero, his farm, his and his family's attention to detail, their history on this wonderful island ... just amazing. Their organic/natural real food is phenomenal. These people are out of... More

These lovely, rustic cabins have a prime location. You can sit on the patio and enjoy watching the wildlife, or you can take a short 5 minute walk to a fabulous snorkeling spot. Our good friends from the USA had coordinated with Claudio to surprise us with two lovely bottles of wine that we enjoyed sipping on the patio and... More

We spent 2 delightful nights at the lodge. The cool winds and the ocean waves gave us a very restful sleep! The breakfasts were served in the last lodge; they were very good. And we could get internet connections there. Everything was clean and the shower was powerful! The view was outstanding!

We didn't really know what to expect on Floreana, but were totally impressed. There are two families that essentially established this island and own the two primary lodging facilities - the Cruz family owns the Lava Lodge and the Wittmer family owns the Wittmer Hotel. These families are key to the experience and history of Floreana. So part of the... More

This lodge, lost in the lost island of Floreana, is where you want to stay when need rest and peace. Each bungalow has a private feeling and is located in the waterfront. The environment is pure nature but the rooms are comfortable and equipped with hot water, A/C and mosquito nets. If you are so mad to do such a... More

All the positive reviews stated herunder are true. Staying at the Floreana lodge, in the little cabins is one of the best landexperiences in the Galapagos. Also the nights, with a clear sky, are beyond believe. One can see the entire milkyway and for us, northern guys, we can see the Big Bear hanging upside down in heaven. It is... More
