This exceeded our expectations by miles! We were not expecting such comfortable rooms on a tiny island. Our room had comfortable beds and was facing the beach which meant that we had a lovely sound of waves all night. There were also chairs outside so you can sit and relax. The food served was delicious and filling and the service... More

We stayed 1 night as part of a set tour with a company. Compared to the 2 other lodges we stayed at on other Galápagos Islands, this one was definitely sub-par. Rooms had spider webs & various dead bug debris, beds were hard (thin mattress on a wooden support), and only some people in our group had hot water--I think... More

Stayed here two nights, right on the black beach. Erica and her mother treated us very well with good food and information about the island. Rooms were basic and hot water tempremental at times but the setting certainly made up for that.

If you visit Floreana Island while in the Galapagos, you can't beat this ocean-front location. Every room walks right onto the ocean, where you can snorkel in the relatively calm waters. That being said, the hotel is not luxe. Nice, clean, but not luxe if that is what you are looking for. The amazing sunset over the water vastly made... More

I echo what many have said about the location...really great. The black sand beach was a big hit and the sunset really nice that night. Not a whole lot to choose from on the island and it comes with a lot of history you can learn about with a lovely display in the main gathering area. I recommend you do... More

The Wittmer Lodge looks impressive as you arrive by boat to the island. It is right on the beach (black beach), and has large panoramic sea views from the breakfast / dining room. The food was plentiful and good quality. The black beach was clean and deserted except for a sea lion! The rocks in front of the hotel by... More

We enjoyed the location, especially breakfast in the large sea view dining area and the breakfast spread was good. Our room was spacious and clean enough with a private balcony. However, I have to say the attitude of the owner, Erika, was a real let down. When we arrived we asked for a room with a better sea view but... More

We stayed at the Lodge for 3 nights and there's pro's and con's to this place. Very good location, right on the renowned Black Beach. All the rooms have ocean views. Breakfast was so-so. There's a snack shop that supplies water, beers, some snacks, sunscreens etc... Erica also sells the book "Floreana" written by her grandmother - Margaret Wittner. I... More

You feel like you're at the end of the world in Floreana, a quiet beautiful place. The hotel is clean and simple, you feel a bit like a pioneer. The toilet didn't flush very well, and the power went out for a while. The proprietor Eric Wittmer is warm and sweet and speaks German because of her family heritage. She... More

After hearing literal horror stories about staying here I was absolutely pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. Our room was simple, and yes there was a broken towel rack in the bathroom and scuff marks on the walls. But other than that it was clean, had a fridge and a ceiling fan. It is located on a beautiful... More
