We stayed here for one night before heading to their other property - Tambopata Research Centre which is further up river. The Lodge is amazing and the facilities incredible considering where it is. Each room is spacious with its own bathroom facilities and the beds are covered by mosquito nets as the windows are open to the jungle (amazing sounds... More

We stayed here for a few nights and wish we had longer. It is a beautiful lodge and the most amazing way to experience the Amazon. Our time here included small guided tours through the jungle not only learning about the wildlife but also the plant life and traditional uses for it. We also went on a canoe ride to... More

Dear Zetta, Thank you for visiting Refugio Amazonas and posting this review about our lodge. As you noticed, for us it really matters to leave the lowest ecological impact on the surrounding ecosystem and we proudly have the certification of Rainforest Alliance to prove this. We appreciate your visit from as far as Australia and hope to see you back... More

I was down in South America last fall and stayed a few days in the Amazon and thought this lodge was amazing!! The staff was so friendly, our guide was very knowledgable and always willing to help and the overall experience was amazing. The day tours were great and the food the lodge was delicious. Not one complaint! I loved... More

We were staying at the beginning of the season, so there were not many people there. That was probably a good thing: We got conducted walks around the forest in a small group of just 4 people. The accommodation is like a 4 star hotel in the middle of the forest. Great staff. Bedrooms openplan to the forest, so you... More

We had a fantastic experience staying at Refugio Amazonas. Our guide "Eddie" (Jair) was so well-informed and an excellent guide in every respect and we seemed to have so much luck seeing wildlife with him--everything from a swimming sloth to river otters and a large herd of wild pigs. The accommodations at Refugio Amazonas are beautiful and comfortable while also... More

A great lodge, the hotel style was perfect for me and my family. We had a great time walking the trails and doing the outings our guide recommended. Our guide was excellent! Going out of the way to answer my kid's questions and making sure that she had a great experience all along. My wife and I had a great... More

Great style of accommodation. Very relaxing and perfect for the hot and humid days. Tours to the jungle required a lot of walking for little reward. Animals very hard to spot. Night session was too short (1hr). However, given the short time we had, it was a good intro to Amazon jungle. Next time will try going to lodges deeper... More

We loved our stay! The lodge is beautiful. Our guide, Listen, was a perfect match for our family. The staff was friendly and useful. This lodge offered the most organised experience I have had living in Peru 5 years. Now what you should know: -Rooms are open to the jungle and the roof is open to the next rooms so... More

This is an amazing place, but if your looking for luxury this is not your place. The rooms are clean and the lodge is just beautiful. The food was the best. Our guide Frank was kind and had a vast knowledge of plants and animals. Internet was sporadic but you didn't come here for that. The peace and quiet was... More

I LOVED my stay at the Refugio Amazonas. I visited South America with my mum, and we had a twin bedroom to stay in. I thought the experience of having a totally open bedroom made you feel at one with the surroundings and it definitely added to the experience. People who have complained about insects really shouldn't have visited the... More
