Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Hacienda concepcion was a luxurious jungle lodge that gave both the authentic jungle experience while not having to rough it too much. The food was incredible and the staff very friendly and helpful. It's also located fairly close to some great wildlife spots, and through our guide we got to see three different tyoes of monkeys, caimens, capybaras, a variety of birds and plants and the river otters in a 4 day trip! It makes a fantastic place for honeymooners who want a bit of adventure but still some romance and luxury. Definitely stay in the cabanas! I highly recommend hacienda concepcion.

We just got back from 2 weeks in Peru, with 4 days/3 nights spent at the Hacienda Concepcion. Man, I wish I hadn't done this in the *beginning* of the trip because it was the best part of the entire vacation and we ended up comparing the entire rest of the trip to this! We were picked up at the airport by the Inkaterra folks, driven over to the Butterfly House, and given a welcome drink of starfruit while they checked us in. They gave us some time to check out the butterflys and then bussed us over to the river where they put our luggage into the boats and we motored down the river for about 30 minutes to the Hacienda. Our first delightful surprise was that there really wasn't any luggage limit -- all of our stuff made it into the boat and over to the Hacienda. When we arrived we were greeted with our first delicious lunch and then a short jungle excursion. We spent the next 3.5 days doing some amazing adventures into the jungle and saw a number of animals in the wild!

The cabanas are pretty much brand new. You walk in to find nice beds awaiting with mosquito nets ready to drop down at night. The cabana is basically 4 wooden walls (they look quite nice, almost like little log cabins) with a bed (or 2 twin beds in my case), a sofa that drops down into another bed, and 2 hammocks that look out into the jungle. Netting on the windows prevents any bugs from getting in. There's also a bathroom and shower in each cabana. The beds were comfortable, the sheets clean/new and at night we were surprised to find a hot water bottle in our beds because the temperature had dropped a bit low. The accomodations were great.

Food was absolutely delcious. Unlike Inkaterra's "Reserva Amazonica" this isn't a "luxury hotel" but it is still very luxorious. The food is served buffet style, instead of the 3 course meal at Reserva, but I actually liked this, as it meant we could try a number of different Peruvian dishes at each meal. Everything was absolutely delicious! Water bottles were provided non-stop -- we never had a shortage of water. The staff was also absolutely wonderful, taking care of everything we needed. Delicious juice, tea, hot chocolate, coffee, etc was always available.

We did a number of excursions into the jungle, all of which were wonderful. The first night we went on a night river tour where we not only saw Caymen, birds, and some boar/guinui pig combo thing, but the milky way also came out in all its glory. The next day we did a small boat ride and then a 1.5mile hike to Lake Sandoval where we saw river otters, monkeys, more caymen, parrots, mackaws and a number of other creatures! We then boated down to Reserva Amazonica where we were taken into the canopy and got to play around at the top of the rain forest! A night walk into the jungle showed us creepy spiders, stick plants, frogs, tail-less scorpions, and other creatures of the night! An early morning excursion the next morning also showed us hundreds and hundreds of parrots, parakeets, and mackaws that had come for a snack.

The guides were absolutely wonderful and spoke english very well. It was amazing how adept they were at spotting wildlife. At night, one of our guides could spot a caymen just by super quickly flashing the spotlight around. It was pretty amazing.

Definitely recommend this -- especially since it's quite a bit cheaper than Reserve Amazonica, also run by Inkaterra. Save your money and come here if you don't need a pool/hot-tub!

Took my mother (80 years) and husband as a gift for both (June 16-18/12), the whole service since we arrived at the airport was impecable. All staff was very cordial and professional. I chose 2 bungalows that were inmaculate and the 3 of us were extremely pleased with the gourmet food served. I would recomend it 100% specially since I'm not at ease at any jungle or forest environment. The excursions were incredible, by walk, in the river or Lake Sandoval. We would definetly come back if we could.

Room Tip: The bungalows are worth the additional cost.

My partner and I spent three days at the Hacienda Concepcion at the beginning of May 2012. It was one of many highlights of our eight days in Peru. The hotel is small & simple but very beautiful. We stayed in one of the bungalows that are a short walk from the main lodge. That was definitely worth the extra money. What I really loved about the accommodations was that they were simple but not short on luxury.

The food in the restaurant was some of the best food I have ever eaten. Everything was freshly prepared using local ingredients and you could definitely tell. Chupe de quinoa, lomo saltado, and another dish of rice and chicken wrapped in a banana leaf that was out of this world.


Also the staff was extremely helpful and everyone beyond nice and attentive. The levels of English varied but everyone was conversational and tried their hardest to communicate. I was impressed that there were people who also spoke French, Portuguese and Japanese.

We did various excursions that were all great. The best one was the trip to the Monkey Island where we got to see four different species of monkeys.

It was a very relaxing, educational, romantic and fun trip. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Stay in the cabanas!!!!

This is a difficult one.

Loved the accommodation.
The bungalow is half open, with mosquito nets all around and no walls in the back.
Because it's built like this, you can look at the creek and the forest from your bed.
One time we woke up to the sound of howler monkeys. It's exciting!

Some of the staff are very friendly... especially Frye was my favourite.
He is the waiter in the restaurant. He served us everything we needed.
The food in the restaurant is, to our opinion, definately the best we ate in 3 weeks in Peru.

But... there are employees who didn't think we were good enough to talk to.
Maybe it's because they didn't speak English that well.
There was another guest who spoke their language, so they talked to her and we were ignored during our stay. That kinda ruined it for us.
But later on, we decided to ignore it and had a blast together.

My advice: do try this one out, there's so much you'll love about this accommodation and scenery. Just try to do like we did: ignore the rude staff. Then you'll be fine!
