Paolo was an amazing tour guide. He was knowledgeable and so nice. The resort itself was great. The rooms were clean and very nice, even without air conditioning. The food was better than expected. Did a range of activities with the group of people we arrived with in the boat (45 min). They have the activities set up for you, so if there is something specific you want or something’s that are offered for an additional cost, you just need to ask in advance. Absolutely no cell service or wifi, which was a great break for us but we didn’t realize how remote we would actually be. Brings lots of bugs spray!!

This was the most relaxing and most fun experience I have ever had! Besides being treated like royalty during our visit, the many excursions to see native wildlife were amazing! The provided 3 meals a day were delicious! The accommodations were comfortable and unique. The natural surroundings were beautiful and serene! I would like to visit again for a week or more!!!

Our stay here was an experience of a lifetime. It is a combination of an immersion in nature in the middle of nowhere combined with excellent food and dining service. The experience is arranged around excursions of which there are three per day -- morning, afternoon, and night. We were placed with a small group of other people based on language (all of us speaking English), along with the same guide for our time here. Our guide, Paulo, was excellent. He found so much wildlife to show us, it was incredible -- howler, capuchin, squirrel monkeys, a variety of caiman, a mother sloth and her baby, tarantula and many others. In the dining room, Rafael and Gracia took great care of us. The service was attentive and 5-star. The menu changed daily and was delicious and local. Both Rafael and Gracia were pleasant to talk with and gave us interesting information about Peruvian food and culture. As others have said, the experience is embedded within nature. The cabanas are screened in (no walls), and electricity goes out for periods of time. Showers are cold. All pretty normal for those used to camping. It was absolutely amazing to experience the Amazon ecosystem in such an immersive way. Unforgettable.

A great home base to explore the jungle.! We were at the lodge for 3 days which we found to be a perfect amount of time. The accommodations were great, the food well prepared, and the staff very accommodating. We especially enjoyed our guide Javier. The dining staff also went out of their way to help celebrate my daughter's 9th birthday. I've ready some other reviews critical for the lack of air conditioning, WIFI, the intermittent electricity (which we found to be no problem at all), and the lack of resort style services. Those comments were embarrassing. You do this trip to do something unique. If you just can live without air conditioning for a few days, then go do something else. Don't blame the lodge for creating a unique and authentic experience. Tips for families - take card games to play when not on excursions. We also had power blocks to run a small USB powered mini-fan to circulate the air. My only suggestion would be to consider a small snack station between meals. Having something small just in case, especially for little ones who just can't wait until the meal times, would be great. Also, since the lodge doesn't provided flashlights, in favor of having guests use their phones at night, having an explorer kit with a small flashlight for kids would be fun Since small kids don't have phones, I either had to be without, or my little one did - which she found especially unsettling during the tarantula hunt. All in all, we had a great time and did something unique!

We stayed with a grand dad (in his own cabin) one adult and two teenagers (sharing a triple). The cabins were spotless and completely netted to keep bugs out. There were additional mosquito nets over each bed. We did bring a blue camping light to catch errant mosquitos if there were any. There is no air-conditioning but fan assisted cooling. This is much healthier than going from air-con cold into high humidity heat in a rainforest, as your body adjusts better to the climate. The service was exceptional. The food was delicious, although the vegetarian in our group was a bit out-of-salads by the end. Lunch was big, and they serve gluten free food in the evenings, ensuring a good night's sleep. Alejandro served us most often, he was great. The excursions were plentiful, and we had a superb guide called Mitchel. We had boat, night and day excursions. Vegetation is very dense, so photo opportunities of wildlife were sometimes limited. Next time I'll bring a better set of binoculars instead of my 300mm lens, as I will enjoy it more. All I could have wished for was more siesta time in the hammocks.

We had a wonderful experience at Inkaterra. The excursions were jaw dropping, the rooms were comfortable, and the hammocks are unbeatable. While there was a lack of communication around what the excursions were and at what times, each one was an unforgettable experience as we got up close to some of the wildlife and explored the jungle. Our guide Javier had an eagle eye for wildlife, and answered our many questions about the animals and the surrounding area. We had no issues with the power outages (scheduled to save energy) and no wifi - both made it seem like we were more in the wilderness of the jungle vs at a fancy resort. We just had two nit-picky recommendations: 1 - we wish they would have done a better job communicating the agenda of excursions so we could plan spa visits and meals ahead of time. And 2 - at night the lighting along the pathway to the Cabañas was insufficient (prepare to bring a flashlight) We had an amazing experience at Inkaterra and couldn't have asked for a better trip to the Amazon.

Stayed for 4 days and paid a pretty large amount for a 5 start resort with all-inclusive to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. IT WAS AWFUL!!! There is NO AIR CONDITIONING for a 90 to 98 degree weather. There is limited electricity, meaning the fans don't work all day only a couple of hours here and there. There is no internet, therefore, no way to complain to anyone or book anything else. The food amount is ridiculously small, you will go hungry. And there is no food in between meals, even for purchase!!! The all-inclusive only includes water and hot tea... The housekeeping was very poor. We had a leaking toilet for 95% of our stay. We asked to speak to the manager, he never showed. The only good thing was that the wait staff was superb, our guide was great. But the "excursions" are so limited that you have to pay LARGE amounts on money to have a decent excursion. It shows a pool BUT THERE IS NO POOL!!!! We complained but nothing was done, no refund, no nothing. I highly encourage you to go to a place with A/C, this was unbearable.

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. We are sorry that the experience was not as expected as we are always looking to provide our guests with authentic nature experiences. Please consider that this is not an all-inclusive property but our rates includes transfers airport/lodge/airport, stay in selected cabaña, full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and a selection of group guided excursions. Details of the programs can be found in our website. The lodge is located 45 minutes by boat from Puerto Maldonado, in order to disconnect from daily life so there is no internet connection and limited electricity. Kindly consider that we do not have a pool in the property. However, our suites have a private plunge pool and there is also a small plunge pool in our Spa. Our team has informed that they have been in contact with you about your stay. We appreciate the time you took to write your comments and we will review the information we provide to our guests, so the information is as accurate as possible. Kind regards,

We visited with 3 couples in their 50s and 2 men in their 20s. This was a great mix of fun excursions and a luxury feel. The cabins are amazing -- all screened with 2 hammocks, 2 chairs and a bed with mosquito netting, as well as the bathroom. You walk to it on cut out pieces of wood and the paths are lit by kerosene lanterns at night (as are the rooms). The meals were all excellent, though the lunch got repetitive, and served in the main lodge area. We also used the spa which was pretty. The excursions were lovely, but there was no choice unless you wanted to pay more for the experience (you could opt for fishing for Piranhas for an extra $100 a person and there were a bunch of other trips you could take for more $$ as well. We opted for the included excursions, which were interesting and fun, though the one to the other property seemed a bit run down. The stars are gorgeous and we did a nighttime excursion on the river which was fabulous. All in all a great stay.

Amazing experience! The hotel is beautiful. The staff is great. The food is great. But the best was the excursions and our tour guide Henry. The excursions are beautiful and Henry, our guide, is super knowledgeable and helpful. I would not recommend the experience if you have young children though. Wake up times are early for the excursions, and the way the cabins are built into nature requires that guests keep quiet and don’t disturb others, which would be hard to do with young children.

This eco lodge is set along the banks of the Madre de Dios River in Peru. Access is by boat from Puerto Maldonado. Cabins are comfortable and appropriate to the setting. That said, there are some things you should be aware of before you make the decision to visit. There is no cell service nor WiFi. Electricity is shut down for several periods each day—all in keeping with the need for minimizing the environmental impact in the area. Our four day visit was all we had hoped for, and more. Each day we ventured out several times with our guide, either hiking or by boat, to visit a different area. Our knowledgeable guide, Anderson, helped up to see red howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, white and black caymen, leaf cutter ants, morpha butterflies, tarantulas, three toed sloth, anteater tracks, and birds too numerous to name. He also pointed out an amazing variety of medicinal plants and trees which provided food, shelter and protection for the wildlife there. There is a canopy walk which takes you through the upper levels of the trees and is fantastic for animal spotting, especially monkeys. Meals were served in a spacious dining room, they were tasty and filling. Service was personal and attentive. The bar tender, Dennis, worked with us to prepare drinks that were both non-alcoholic and minimally strong, as we requested, especially the Cusco Sour. A specialty bread made from yucca was a treat at dinner. The variety of fruits continued to amaze us. We were also able to visit the spa for a special foot treatment which we thoroughly enjoyed. The spa staff was skilled and attentive. We had an amazing visit at Inkaterra Amazonica and would happily return if the opportunity arose.
