This place is amazing...I read a lot of the reviews before going, all with a pinch of salt, and I'm glad I did. Yes you have a bit of a trek to get here...but that's all part of the experience...the boat trip down the main river, the walk..its not taxing and brilliant way to get to the lake...then a canoe...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience at Sandoval Lake Lodge. I heartily agree with all the positive points made by others. Our guide Blinio was awesome - extremely helpful, patient, knowledgeable. On our jungle treks and canoe trips he would point out amazing things that we never would've noticed on our own - and then supply interesting... More

I recently stayed here for three nights with a small group of fellow travellers, and it really felt like an adventure from start to finish. Our tour was organised by Inkanatura and we were well looked after from the moment we landed in Puerto Maldonado. We were driven to their office where we were given duffel bags to put our... More

We had an amazing trip to the lake. Our guide Esauu was very knowledgable and took us for jungle walks (day and night) and trips to the lake. The food was really good, there is a nice atmosphere and they are paying attention to conserving the area.

I am reading some of the negative reviews of this place and all I have to say is that those folks did not read up on this place before they went. That is your own fault! My husband, daughter and I just returned from the Sandoval Lodge. We had a wonderful time! We admired the adventure of the boat ride,... More

Ok, to all those other reviewers complaining of mud and bugs: DO YOU EVER LEAVE YOUR OWN HOUSE??? For everyone else - you must go here! Yes, it's remote, but that's why it's such a cool place. My wife and I did the 3D/2N trip here through InkaNatura. It was the last part of our vacation in Peru, and probably... More

After reading some reviews I had some trepidation when our party of eight went to stay for 4 nights. The boat was fine, the walk was an unusual experience and the canoe amazing. When we arrived we ceratinly needed the refreshing lemon drink served. We had an amazing time and our guide xavier could not have been more helpful. the... More

It is a nearly three hour trip from Puerto Maldonado to reach the Sandoval Lake lodge. First is a bus ride to the river jetty then a nearly one hour motorboat ride to the entry point to the lake lodge followed by a 3 km + trek through the Amazon jungle whereing gum boots. There is a path which is... More

Well our experience at lake Sandoval was truly something I will never forget. I guess I didn't really fully understand what it was. Let me explain... Lake Sandoval was the only resort located in the actual rainforest reserve area. All the others are on the outskirts and do day trips inside. Really people, you do not need to be sleeping... More

We stayed at the Sandoval Lake Lodge for 3 nights in January. For us. We did not find the hike in to be too bad, but rather, it added to the adventure. You have to consider where you are and what you are doing. It's definitely not the Four Seasons. But for a lodge in the middle of the wilderness,... More
