We chose that lodge because of its closeness to Tena and because it seemed not to big and overcroweded. Both expectations have been perfectly met. (Stayed 3 nights/ 4 days)
Booking: The adress of its Quito office changed recently, its located in a Hotel called Villa Nancy now. The old adress (Av. Amazonas y Wilson) does not exist anymore.
Arrival: Takes about half an hour from Tena by taxi (10 Dollars), there is supposed to be a bus 5 times a day
Staff: Very friendly and caring. English is spoken on a high level.
Food/Drinks: Excellent three meals a day, actually the best food I ate in Ecuador. The cocktails are good as well (They have a happy hour)
Location: feels like your deep inside the jungle, the bungalows are spread out, so you have privacy, every hat has a porch which is facing the rio Napo. The room/bathroom was clean and comfy. Hot water the whole day.
Tours: Well organised, the staff tries to fulfill all wishes and request. The tours are organized for all guest of the lodge as a group.
I would like to go again any time!
