We spent two nights at the Casa del Suizo as part of a Gate1 tour of Ecuador in March 2015. I really had no idea what to expect when we arrived, so it is easy to say that our expectations were exceeded. Our tour bus dropped us alongside the Napo River, where we and our luggage were transported down river... More

Just returned to Casa del Suizo for 3 days of R & R while on a recent trip to Ecuador. This is where you go to experience the jungle in a safe and relaxing way, while sleeping on a soft bed and overlooking the Napo River. Arrive by canoe to lay by the pool or go on a jungle trek,... More

Hotel sits high on a hill above the Napo River. We arrived by boat to see a beautiful group of building with thatched roofs. Our room had no windows, just screens to keep the bugs out, a ceiling fan and a hammock on the patio to relax in...simply heaven. No TV, Radio. The staff was friendly and the service was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our Gate 1 tour. One of the things I appreciated about the Gate 1 tour was their selection of hotels for the itinerary throughout the country. Hacienda Cusin, Termas de Papallacta, La Casa del Suizo, Hacienda Manteles, and Finch Bay Eco-Hotel were not what I would consider luxurious, but they possessed... More

Stayed here for two nights, wished it was at least 4-5 days. The ground is beautiful, flowers blooming everywhere. The room was great, no window, just screens separating the room from the balcony, which made it really nice at night. Food (all buffets) and service were excellent. We also visited the animal rescue center, hiked in the rainforest, and met... More

Lovely place, beautiful gardens, exotics flowers every were, pool that overlooks the river. Rooms are very large and comfortable, no air, but no need, large fan on the ceiling. Mosquitos may be a problem, but at the time we visited, we had no problems. The hotel offers many outings such as a nature walk on the jungle, getting there by... More

We booked a package to this hotel from Quito. The whole trip was a great experience. The lodge is large, the individual rooms are clean and quite large. The grounds are well kept and the location along the river makes for interesting views. There is a large swimming pool and a lot of the dining room is open air. The... More

We stayed at Casa del Suizo as part of our Gate 1 tour. Be aware that if you are traveling independently, there may be two or three groups there at the same time and it will get loud in the dining/ bar area. I loved the double chalet we were in, number 312. It was quite a walk to get... More

People who stay here either love it or hate it. It IS rustic compared to the usual chain hotels we are used to, but you can't beat the location and the uniqueness of this place! Don't expect dependable Wi-Fi, phones for wake-up calls, air conditioning, TV, hairdryers or toiletries beyond soap and shampoo. BUT, oh my! The views of the... More
