This hotel offers clean and big rooms. I booked the double room, and it's more than enough for me. Much more enough. The room itself has one big bed and small bed (seems it can be occupied for 3 people) but one more person also can sleep in a quite long bench in the other side. Also it has private clean and quite big bath room, also a television hang on the wall.
If you come to amazon with your family, I do really recommend this hotel, but if you are alone who needs big spaces for your self, hmmm ... I recommend also (haha).
The breakfast is normal, you can order fried egg, bread, juice, chocolate, and fruit with a good view in the shining morning. You eat breakfast in front of garden of this hotel with birds voices. that's the plus point of having breakfast here.
If you want to come to Amazon, without any travel agent, don't be afraid, just come to this hotel and they will guide you to get any excursions (activities). The receptionist explain it very well and friendly. She explain all good and bad points of each travel, really objective.
I compare all the cost of this trip with the trip that offered by one travel agent in capital city, the difference could be 400 USD. I got offered the complete tour by travel agent (excluding flight ticket) it costs 898usd, but my journey alone (hotel amazon 4 days 3 nights + excursions) only costs around 500 usd. Both of that comparison is without flight ticket. I am happy because I dont have to spend much money and most all the activities that offered by that travel agent is already done by me. Remember, kayaking is the river activity that depends on water in the river, if its down you can't do this and this days I can't do it because the river is receding in Tanimboca. So, most of activities already done by me (I repeat again, hehehe).
Location of this hotel also near town centre, so you can go to central park to see the bird, or find ATM or any restaurant nearby.
The minus of this hotel is the hot water, its not provided. But with this tropic climate, I am okay. Different when I lived in Bogota, hot water is a must.
Also, if you can't understand spanish, its gonna be a trouble, because their english is not really good. I can understand spanish, but I can't speak fast so its not a big trouble for me. Just say "dispacio por favor" and they will speak slowly.
The price of this hotel is quite expensive for a solo traveler, but I already told you, its better for small or medium family to stay here. Worth it.
Another thing, do not expect any modern or luxury condition, this condition is already good and worth it in this amazon town. If you need another luxury hotel, there's one, search it on tripadvisor or booking. com but the price is overwhelming. It's your decision.
In conclusion, those are some points why I give 5 stars for this hotel, it doesnt disappoint me at all.
