We were a group of 10 people and we spend 3 nights/4 days at Refugio Amazonas. Our arrival was well greeted with fresh juice and quick orientation by the lodge manager. The rooms were nicely done with mosquito nets. Considering the moisturous weather, we did find the bed and comforter had an odor which took a couple of nights for... More

My husband and I stayed at the Refugio for three nights, from 30 June through 3 July, as part of a large group. We loved everything about the Refugio -- the spotlessly clean rooms, the peaceful main lodge, the delicious food (and the special effort to make food for us vegetarians -- so thoughtful!), the quiet location, the interesting excursions,...

We enjoyed our 3 nights at this lodge. It was very refreshing to get away from rest of life for a few days. With minimal distractions you could really enjoy nature. The staff and accommodations were excellent. We had a fantastic guide Moises would was very knowledge and helpful throughout out stay. Definitely would do again.

We really enjoyed our 4 days stay at this lodge. You read a lot of reviews about places being noisy, or being able to hear other guests but that is the nature of a bamboo lodge. We didn't really notice or care! The food we superb, some of the best we had on the trip. The staff and guides were... More

Refugio Amazonas is a gorgeous lodge. Our room was extremely comfortable with high quality linens and a bug canopy. The open air set up was perfect for getting a close-to-nature feel. I sighted a monkey right out my window and of course, could hear all the sounds of the rainforest, which I loved. The 3 meals provided buffet style were... More

Jesus was our guide. He did a really good job making the experience interesting. The lodge is unbelievable considering where it is in the rain forest and the distance from Puerto Maldonado, which is closest "town". All of the people who worked there were customer service oriented. Truly a unique and unforgettable experience.

In the lodge, everything is just like holiday inn; while out for the jungle, you get hands very dirty, this is what Amazonas Paradise about. The only bad thing is the biodiversity is low in Refugio Amazonas, for those wanna see more animals, go to Tambopata.
