We stayed three nights, and loved the place. The rooms were very good - spacious, clean and comfortable; (one was a suite, and that had massive space). The views were as shown in the photos, but even better in real life. The food was a very positive surprise. We came to Gocta from Pumarinri, one of their other lodges, where... More

We chose Gocta Lodge for its stunning location and the photos of the infinity pool overlooking the waterfall. We were not disappointed, it's perhaps even more stunning in real life. The hotel is clean and cosy without too many bells and whistles. From the door of the hotel you can walk to the waterfall, it's about an hour away. It's... More

Our trip to Gocta Lodge was intended to be a little break from our hectic journey around Peru. Fairly off the beaten track (we took a painful 10 hour bus ride from Tarapoto) Gocta was certainly a vacation from our vacation. The room was comfy, clean and modern. The view was ridiculous (in a good way). The staff were beyond... More

Once you pass the rustic village, Gotac Lodge just feels like an oasis. It has the best view of Gocta Falls and the surrounding mountains. There is a small pool, plenty of lounge chairs and even a family of illamas in the garden. It felt so relaxing, peaceful to getaway, no internet at the hotel, no TV and phone in... More

This lodge was voted one of the five hotels in Peru with the best views, and it certainly deserves it. It is a beautiful oasis in the boondocks, on a hill about 5 kilometres from the 3rd highest waterfall in the world. Every room has a perfect view of the waterfall. Considering its isolation, it is remarkably good quality and... More

we would have liked to stay a little longer !!! what a gorgeous view......................... we were treated royally. the dinners were delicious; everything so fresh and tasty. the most refreshing part was that there was no WiFi or TV. so people would actually have time to talk to each other. Highly recommended, COBY and SJOERD

We really enjoyed our couple of days of luxury at the lodge. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are huge and nicely decorated and the food was great. It was very peaceful to enjoy the surroundings and the walk to the waterfall was easy and quite dramatic to see it up close. No wifi or tv but you really don't... More

The lodge by itself is excellent, but the mountains that surround it are truly one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. With a direct view of the Gocta waterfall, world's third tallest waterfall. The restaurant is also amazingly good, every dish we tasted was wonderful.

We took the 4 nights 5 day package and wished had stayed at least one day longer. As general rule we do not take packages, but since we wanted to stay at this lodge and to get there involved too many hours by bus and then a pick service from where the bus would drop you, we decided to take... More
