After reading the reviews of this hotel I was hoping to be blown away by it, sadly I was disappointed, the rooms although spacious were constantly damp, this was no doubt due to the lack of air conditioning or a ceiling fan. As the rooms are without electricity the only lighting is by candle's, I would of liked a few... More

The Pacuare Lodge is top notch in service and quality. The rooms we had were absolutely stunning. Open air and very romantic, the turn down service lights your room with candles while you are at dinner. The meals were delightful, and while not five star dining, they were always very nice and well prepared. The rafting trip out was the... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the lodge three nights over New Years. This lodge is stunning!! We had the (Puma) Vista Linda Suite, which was beyond beautiful, romantic, and comfortable and spotless! The staff is so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. We tried ziplining and cayoneering, I recommend both! Rafting in and out... More

First Class service in the midst of a rain forest. Exceptional experience. High quality service & outstanding attention to details. From the river guides who also serve as your dining waiters, to the zip lining crew. Wish I could have stayed longer. Highly recommend.

We rafted in to the lodge and were greeted with hot chocolate. The service was beyond 5 star. The head of our raft was Roy and he kept everyone safe and highly entertained. All the people bringing you down the river work in at the Lodge so it is an incredibly intimate, service oriented experience. The food was incredible and... More

My husband and I spent 3 days, 2 nights on our honeymoon and did not want to leave! We chose the honeymoon package and stayed in the Puma lodge - a complete dream. Our room itself was amazing - the beautiful outdoor shower, the vintage tub, the infinity pool and gorgeous sights and sounds. We chose to do the 6-8... More

Our stay at the Lodge was one of the most unique and adventurous vacations we have ever experienced. Most guests raft in and raft out of this lodge and as far as rafting experiences go, rafting on the spectacular Pacuare River is the only way to arrive and depart. The "what to bring" and luggage guide on the website is... More

We spent three nights here in the Honeymoon Canopy Suite. It was absolutely fantastic and a real highlight of our trip. I can only reiterate what has been said in other reviews in that the staff, the location, the rafting in, the activities and "vibe" while you are there is absolutely fantastic. We like to keep busy on holiday and... More
