Lontra Panatnal is situated on the shore of Rio Miranda – perfect spot for the activities that are part of the tour. These include: night and day boat trips, jeep safari, jungle walk, river floating, canoeing, piranha fishing. There's a good balance between activities and leisure time. The food is excellent and abundant. The staff is very friendly. Our guide,... More

The Pantanal Discovery was a great deal in the Southern Pantanal. The guides were knowledgeable naturalists, friendly, spoke very good English and Gil goes out of his way to try to insure that we had a wonderful time at the lodge in Pantanal. The accommodation was excellent, hot shower and the air con was perfect. The food was healthy, and... More

I booked through Green Toad Bus who use Pantanal Discovery. Gil was waiting for me when my bus arrived from Iguassu (early in the morning) and took me to his office which is in a hotel I think where I could help myself to a good breakfast. Our transfer arrived about an hour later and took us to the pick... More

We arranged our stay in the Pantanal through Pantanal viagens (Ronaldo). We stayed 2 nights, 3 days at the Lontra Pantanal hotel at the beginning of January 2015. Positives: we saw lots of animals despite the wet season and had great weather. The food and rooms were better than we expected (we read a lot of tripadvisor reviews before we... More

Our guide, Pepinho, was exceptional and very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. We saw caiman, capybara, an... More

My friend and I booked the 3 day package with Pantanal Discovery. It was really easy to book - we just contacted Gil and we were all set! It includes a lot of things so it's worth the money: the transfers, the food, the accommodations, and the excursions/activities. I would definitely recommend booking with Pantanal Discovery! Our guide Luiz was... More

We stayed at Lontra Pantanal Hotel for two nights. When we arrived at reception and attempted to check in, the owner ignored us and focused on handling issues with another family that was checking in for 15-20 minutes. In general, the owner did not seem to appreciate his guests at all – once he had your money, he did not... More

We arranged the trip via Gil. Everything was really well organised including the pick-up from the airport in Campo Grande. The hotel was basic but clean and the food buffet was really nice. Our guide (Carlos) spoke very good English and guided us very well. The activities were super fun and very adventerous.

This review is written in English as we saw that most people staying at Lontra Pantanal Hotel were foreigners from non-Latin speaking countries. We therefore believe it important to write in English so that the “target” guests of Lontra Pantal Hotel can be informed. Due to the vast range of disservices endured during our stay what will be mentioned here... More
