This is remote, really remote - which is just what we wanted. Limited periods of electricity, no wifi or signal - a great escape. The property is beautifully in keeping with its environment and many of the staff lived locally along the river bank.
The food was good and plentiful. The room was as you would expect. Well attended and clean - but after a massive downpour one night we had a tiny frog visit our shower room - we were happy to share!
The best aspect of the trip was our wonderful guide Shawn and Jamus the boatman.
Charming, knowledgable and nothing was to much trouble. They both had the intuitive balance of information, humour, detail and quietness. Both had a real harmony with us and the environment.
All the lodge staff were cheery and helpful although the resident macaw,Nina was amusingly moody! The dog Rex and the exceptionally lazy cat were delightfful but the semi-resident spider monkeys stole the show.
The activities were well organised with the highlight being the night cayman stalking. The sense of remoteness, the wonderful night sky and closeness to nature was marvellous and a memory we will never forget. We loved swimming I the river and the other guests were very friendly and like minded.
It is a trek to get here - but we wouldn't have missed it for the world and the journey across the Amazon at Manous and the journey to the lodge the other side is an experience in itself.m
