We arrived to Tarapoto and were picked up by the resort. The car was new and comfy. Our driver (Manuel) was incredibly nice and helpful. To get to the hotel you must go through the ferry. Looks dangerous but very secure. The hotel itself is beautiful. Clean, great attention by the staff, the view of the lake is amazing. The... More

The location of this hotel is just amazing, good food, good service, this is a perfect place if you want to relax yourself or have a great nights with your partner, but I would recommend to go in Summer time, because heavy rains can ruin your vacations, apart from that, just go and onjoy yourseflf!

Recommendation is to pay a bit more and rent out one of their bungalows. You get an awesome view of Lagoon, the dock is literally 50 meters from you and either the view from your personal hammock or bungalow is the priceless. The hotel staff is terrific. I've seen some other reviews here and I don't honestly get where the... More

The hotel's setting is great. You enjoy magnificent views of the Blue Lagoon straight from the cabins. The property is small and can get a little boring after a few nights. There is not much to do in nearby town El Sauce. Pretty much this is like an isolated resort in an island, although it is not. You may think... More

I just checked out today from that hotel and my stay was very disappointing. Do not get me wrong, I am peruvian and the location is amazing, has an excellent view to the lagoon as you can see by the pictures from other users. My review has to do with the information given to guest prior to the arrival creating... More

Incompetent service from the airport. There were 2 cars at the airport. The driver put us in one going to the local hotel, which was supposed to drop a passenger off, then take us to the resort. But some lady on the other bus had a fit, and the driver, who supposedly is the manager, Juan Carlos Garcia, did not... More

I love everything in there: the food was good, a mix between typical and international, good service and very, very friendly people. Ask for any of the hut in front of the lake, you will love it. Be ready to get totally wet because of the rain at any time. The resort offers also several activities to do.
