After two weeks on the road, our last stop was Misahualli. A friend had already recommended us Banana Lodge and we had high expectations, and they were surpassed. The vibe of the place is one of the most relaxing I've ever found. The quality of the rooms (furniture, bed, tables, bathroom) is exemplary. The place has a lush private river... More

We were originally looking at all the fancy lodges in this area, but they are roughly $150-300 pp in price. This place is a gem in the middle of Ecuador's rainforest region, and only about 1/15 of the price. The rooms are basic, clean, and comfy with a fan to keep you cool. Your room is surrounded by colorful fruit... More

We loved our stay at Banana Lodge, we even stayed longer than was planned. Rooms are nice and clean, the garden just wonderful, let Anna to show and introduce to you the plants she has (cocoa, coffee-tree and lots of more) The view to the Napa River is a great bonus. It is only 800 m to the centre. Anna... More

We chose the Banana Lodge to have a "jungle" experience without having to go far in, due to lack of time. The location and grounds are beautiful. The lodge backs onto the Napo River, lots of trees, flowers and birds if you're lucky. It is very quiet, our room was very large and had three single beds which were comfortable,... More

A clean and comfortable room in a beautiful setting. LOVE the hammocks surrounding by the lush plants of the area! Wonderful breakfast made fresh for us - homemade bread and jam, fresh juice, eggs. Close to town. The owners made me a special herbal tea for my upset stomach - worked like a charm!

we stayed in Mishualli because we didn't have the travel time to get deeper into the Amazon> Banana Lodge was great! and the reviews on here are correct. Breakfasts were nice. Easy walk into town, and there's a ATM in town. Loved watching the monkeys. Anna recommended a one day boat tour on the Napo River. It was the highlight... More

We spent 9 nights at the Banana lodge. The breakfast is good, you can choose how you want your eggs prepared. The rooms are clean and with a nice view, The owners where extremely helpful in recommending things to do and set it up for us. If we visit Misahualli again we will definitely stay at Banana lodge!

This is an excellent place to stay in Misahualli. Going to the Amazon we were concerned about the cleanliness, the water etc. Do not hesitate to book this place - it is simple but very clean and has all you need. There is no A/C but we did not need it at all. The hosts are very kind people and... More
