As you can tell from the reviews, Inotawa has lots of happy guests, and my family was no exception. Before booking (and later before our arrival), I read through the reviews and found the information on Tripadvisor to be very helpful. For that reason, I'm providing a lengthy review to help fellow travelers decide whether to stay here, and what... More

When we looked at places to stay inotawa was a lot cheaper, and I really don't know what other places could offer as it was great. Airport collection and transport to the lodge went smoothly. The lodge is beautifully done, and at night is gorgeously lit up. The rooms and bathrooms (we had a private bungalow) were huge and spotless.... More

We had a great time staying at Inotawa for five days and four nights at the end of the rainy season in May. The bungalow that we stayed in was large and comfortable with much more privacy than the regular lodge building, and although there was no electricity in the bungalows they do set you up with candles and lighters....

This ecolodge is exactly what you'd expect for an Amazon experience! No luxuries like a hotel, but it's exactly what I wanted to experience the Amazon! Smack in the middle of the jungle off the river with no AC, cold showers, and no electricity except for a few hours a night. It was such a different and awesome experience! The... More

Inotawa Lodge has been the highlight of our Peru adventure. Loved every minute of our 4 day Amazon adventure. Cannot praise our guide, Marco, highly enough...he was patient, encouraging and knowledgeable. the facilities at the lodge were perfect for this type of adventure. The food and drinks were amazing and the staff were friendly and helpful.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband and sister in law and couldn't believe it was a 2 star! We had our own bathroom and balcony looking out over the rainforest and the lodge was beautifully designed and spotless. We had a never ending supply of teas, coffee, water and snacks and were able to use the hammocks... More

First - I apologize to Inotawa Lodge for taking so long to write this review. We were there in July 2012. Every group was assigned their own guide for the time spent at the lodge - so our family of 5 had one guide - a couple had another etc - and the guide also ate most of the meals... More

I hate to have to write such a negative review, but feel that people paying for this lodge need to know about our experience. The staff here were actually quite good, but I feel that the problems I am describing below are a result of poor management. First of all, our family of 6 arrived at Christine's office in Puerto...

Dear Mrs. Andrea V, We have registered your booking and accommodation. We know that you came early in the morning and there was a smell of fermented mangoes that ferment at night due to the extremely hot temperatures. Now the mango season is over and the smell is gone. Normally passengers fly in from 11:20am and at that time we... More

We (3 of us) could not have asked for anything better. Starting from our reservation, till the end of the trip, everything was perfect. Since we were 3, we were given a free upgrade to one of the bungalows. It's not a bungalow in the usual sense, but it offers more privacy and is more quiet. The guide (Victor) picked... More

Absolute relaxation! That was what our 3 days at Inotawa gave us. We were dead tired on arriving with the night bus from Cusco and it rained when we got to Puerto Maldonado, but it didn´t take long to realize that we had come to heaven on earth.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
INOTAWA started its operations of eco- tourism in the Tambopata national reserve (RTAMB) in 1998 by visiting the sites that can be found at the margins of the Tambopata River. These are Tres Chimbadas Lake, the La Torre Lakes, Cocococha lake, La Torre parrot clay lick, Chuncho and Colorado clay licks and El Gato creek.In order to offer comfort to our guests during their visits we constructed inotawa lodge situated in the sector La Torre in the buffer zone of the Tambopata national reserve and surrounded by an area of private conservation (ACP) with pristine forest and natural bamboo patches that host a large variety of birds, mammals, insects and reptiles.Inotawa lodge is constructed with traditional materials of the Amazon. Palm leaf thatching, timber and bamboo maintain an architecture that blends in perfectly with the surrounding nature and the gardens full of medicinal and ornamental plants.The infrastructure consists of 16 rooms with private bathroom, a dining area, a bar, a hammock area, a web of trails, kayaks and bicycles. In short, everything necessary to offer safe, high quality service to our tourists with social and environmental responsibility.INOTAWA is a family business run by naturalists that also develop projects with the inhabitants of the “La Torre” sector. We think this to be the best manner to give a sustainable use to the area. ... more   less
