Sandoval vs. Heath River Wildlife Center

Looking to compare the two lodges and experiences. My travel agency has offered to upgrade us to the Heath River Wildlife Center which has the macaw claylicks instead of just staying the four days at Sandoval Lodge.

I'd appreciate any input on the two of them - I've heard positive things about Sandoval but haven't read any reviews on the Heath River Wildlife Center.

I went to the Heath River Wildlife Center and I'm working on a trip report, although I don't have a basis for comparison because I went to Sandoval. The major drawback is that the HRWC is 5 hours from Puerto Maldonado by boat, other than that, we really enjoyed our tour-- saw lots of macaws, some caimans, capybaras, etc.
