“Everything was ok, but no hot shower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

After flying in, their staff met us at the airport and took us to their office in Puerto Maldonado. There we repacked our things and took the small luggages with us, and left the big ones in the office. We had to wait for around 1 hour for tourists from the next flight. During the wait the staff took us for a quick walk in the market nearby and it's a good chance to buy some brazillian nuts. After that we were taken to the dock and took a 1.5-hour boat trip to the lodge. The lodge is beautiful and there are a few parrots and many different plants. During the tours you're almost guaranteed to see monkeys (on the monkey island) and caimans (on the river bank during the night tour on the first day and the lost lake on the second day), and a lot of birds. For other animals, it depends on your luck. We saw an anaconda. The river boat cruise is a nice experience. Our guide was good and knowledgable.

There is purified drinking water provided in the canteen during some specific hours of a day. Fill up your bottles during these timeslots. Similarly, electricity is only provided during certain time of the day. Food in canteen was good. Unlimitied supply of banana.

There is no hot water for shower...

I stayed at the lodge with a group of teachers and students. We really enjoyed our trip and our tour director said it is one of the best lodges and also the largest in the area. The rooms are very clean and comfortable (no AC just to warn you). The lodge only has electricity for several hours....2 during lunch and then from 5 pm-10 pm (in June). The pool was cool, screened in and clean. The food was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and could answer all the questions about the plants and animals in the area. We went to monkey island, went on a night boat ride to look for caimans and on a 7 km hike throughh the forest. There is also a bar and Florentino makes the best pisco sours or any other drink you want. Overall we had a great experience. The staff was attentive and we were not lacking anything. Defnitely make sure to hang out in the hammocks overlooking the river!

I have stayed in lodges all over the world, and stayed in the Eco amazonia last year. A friend recently told me she read a bad review on this site about the lodge. I tell you it cannot be further from the truth!. Food was wonderful and we had some wonderful excursions. I also stayed at Sandoval lake a few weeks later and the manager there actually commented there was a lot of negative reports being written about all the hotels in the area... its a bit of tit for tat!.. It makes me angy how some people use trip advisor!.. anyway, I better go back to my india posts!! My friend Karla who also stayed here in november raved about the lodge after my reccomendation!

Enjoy Peru, a wonderful, wonderful country!

This was our first time to be in a lodge somewhere in the rainforest. Just by arriving, as we got out of the boats, were touched by the feeling of mother nature, better say: Pachamama. All the small log houses, the woodden walkway corridors, Heliconias, Gingers everywhere, bird songs never heard before, the pool...they all gave us feeling relaxed. As other reviewers said, yes, no fish catched during fishing tripm but who cares? We were in nature and had great time! The little fear I had was the jokes about piranhas when we jumped in the black water :-) Minutes before swimming we put raw meat bait on hooks...
Anselmo was really great guide. During the trips on Monkey island and the next day to the lake he knew every tree, bush, mushroom or insect. As I remember he was aymara indian, spoke good English, knew even Latin names of the species.
Wanna be back there some days!

We stayed here 2nights/ 3 day, 3 well travelled fit mature ladies (quite used to eco travels), Too much time spent travelling and waiting for bus to fill up with large tour groups. First trip to Monkey island very disappointing having to wait for a large group 20+ to keep up !! The few monkeys we saw were fed to attract them down and allowed to drink from Plastic water bottles supplied by American guests who thought it highly amusing !! The very young inexperienced guide encouraged these antics, it was worse than a zoo !!! next day we trecked for 6 hours round a well- used, prepared track saw very little. Fishing trip No fish and Caymans very few. There were no afternoon activities or any on our last evening . I suspect they wanted you to sit in the bar and buy drinks all night !!
Overall not a good experience, guides were more interested in Learning English than guiding

My sister and I recently stayed at this Lodge for the 3 day, 2 night stay. Thankfully, we didn't book it for any longer. When we arrived, they made us stay in Porto Maldanado in their warehouse for quite a few hours while they waited for others to fill their bus and boat to the destination. When we finally arrived, the place looked OK but not very organized for tours etc. We had to guess at where to go and when. There were no options for tours so our 9 hour hike in the jungle was for everyone in our group. We had some that were elderly but there was no option for them other than the walking tour.
The rooms had large gaps in the walls so bugs got in and there was no hot water at all.
I think that they turn off the lights at 10 to save money and not because they were environmentally friendly. I saw no other evidence of the "Eco" part of this Lodge.
The first day the food was good but the second day, there were flies everywhere, sitting on the food.
I would definitely not recommend this place.

  • Liked — The staff was friendly
  • Disliked — Food and no hot water

It was a great place and we had a great time but like some other people have mentioned, the fishing trip excursion is rubbish, because there are no fish. Its just a boat ride really. But the food was fab, the cabins and pool were great - eco friendly. The guides were great - Victor was amazing! The bar was good, although the service was slow at times when there wasnt a long queue at all. Great atmosphere around the place and you really feel like youre on holidays.
