The accommodations were amazing, and the spa services we awesome. Food was delicious. Our guide was the only issue that we encountered. The Internet was a great bonus and the rooms were so comfortable.

Spent one night out of a 5D/4N deep rain forest expedition at Refugio and based on the reviews, I had average expectations but must say Refugio exceeded my expectations :) Rooms: very rustic, clean, beautiful and perfectly designed for the rain forest - not some ghastly Hilton in the middle of the rain forest! Great detail in rooms with private... More

Our family of four (two girls aged 13 & 9) had a four-day/three-night stay at Refugio Amazonas to kick off our 10 day trip to Peru. We arrived at Puerto Maldonado airport in a driving rainstorm and met our guide once we retrieved our luggage. Went back to the Rainforest Expeditions office to repack, and then we were on our...

I had an amazing time at Refugio Amazonas. The staff is extremely passionate and knowledgable. The lodge is beautiful and the food was delicious! I loved the open air rooms. They really allow you to connect with the jungle. I can't wait to come back again, and stay for an even longer time.

We had a great time here! This is basically luxury camp for grown ups. Make no mistake, it's rugged, adventurous luxury. You are far from civilization but very comfortable once you're there. You are with a small group for duration of your trip and your daily activities are planned by your guide. We enjoyed our group of people - very... More

After a 1 hour coach hjourney and a 2 hour boat trip and a 10 min walk through the jungle we did not know what to expect but we were totally bowled over by this magical place. Boots and shoes are left at the door/step and you can use indoor shoes or bare feet to walk along the wooden walkways.... More

After a long walk into the jungle we finally found our way to the resort... we were in the dark most of the way but when we arrived at the resort it was lit up and very pleasant. Take your flashlight with you if you are arriving there after dark as there is no lighting available on the side of... More

I came here because I wanted the jungle experience. It is definitely unique and very resort-like, although you are in the jungle. The lodge is just what I expected. Very nice accommodations considering it is open to the outdoors. Great rooms with mosquito nets over beds. We loved watching the pickory and monkeys right from our room! There is an... More

Arrived after sundown....makes getting around a little harder,but the jungle experience is great! Rooms with outside view will take some getting used to,as will sleeping under mosquito netting! The staff and food are good and since we are headed further up river after one night this will seem like a 5 star resort!
