It was a great experience. I recomend that you stay in one of the cottages by the river. Amazing to wake up and go to sleep with the voice of thousand birds, and other animals. Room is very airy, hammocs in the room. I enjoyed lying in the hommocks and watching the sunset on the Madre De Dios. Weather is very hot during the day, take very cool clothing. Service was great.

We enjoyed our adventure at this beautiful lodge despite picking up Giardia and E.coli, not their fault, we forgot and drank from the tap. The staff were very accommodating and thankfully the illness did not set in until our last day. Our guides were smart, energetic and funny and we enjoyed the wildlife, the beautiful setting and the hikes, skip their boots and wear your own, many people ended up with blisters from the ill fitting boots. The hikes can be a bit muddy and you will be on the river and on lakes, but its kind of to be expected. The drinks and the food were rather nice and the staff were so very kind and thoughtful. The cabins are well appointed, comfortable beds and filtered water is provided. Lights off at night, make sure you have your flashlight and the walls are thin so you can hear just about everything in the night. The monkeys were a blast and the canopy walk was fun. Such a classy place, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Take what you get, from what we say all the cabins are very nice.

We definitely enjoyed our 4 day stay at this amazing lodge. It was our first time in the jungle. We travelled with our 3 kids, age from 6 to 11 and although we travel quite frequently, they´ve rated this experience as “best trip EVER”. Everything was so well organized, the pickup at the airport, the chilled welcome drink at the butterfly house and the boat trip to the lodge. The grounds are breathtaking and the staff very helpful and welcoming. Our room had a gorgeous river view, comfortable beds and two wonderful hammocks to relax in between excursions. The food was wonderful, quite a variety if you think about the lodge’s location! The desserts were amazing…especially the Tres leches!! The lodge gives each guest a water bottle that one can take to the excursions and refill as necessary. We did all the excursions and had a lot of fun. The kids were thrilled, they enjoyed the Canopy best and Sonia our guide was wonderful!! We really loved every aspect of the experience… I highly recommend it!!!

Hot, humid and wonderful. Cabins are simple (no AC) but are well appointed. Service is friendly and the guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. Good food and drinks. Setting is unbeatable, jungle walks, piranha fishing, bird watching, etc

After a considerable journey, the huddle of huts feels like a sanctuary. The facilities are comfortable (nice cooling massage); the food is quite amazing, considering you are in the middle of nowhere. Restaurant service was slightly patchy, I suppose, but again, all things considered they did an amazing job. Outstanding was the guide, Jesus. He was our allocated guide on several of the group tours, and then took us on a bespoke tour for fishing. He was calm, interesting, informative- kids loved him and he was exactly what you wanted to have on a boat riding up a fog shrouded river in the dry season (ie not much water in the river!). Canopy walk was scary but exhilarating.

Room Tip: huts by the water have a nice view, but there are noisy motors on the boats that travel on the river...

Three words: WOW WOW WOW!!! This was our first time in the jungle/Rainforest.. Wasn't sure what to expect. When we arrived at the reception center in Puerto Maldonado we were greeted by a Star Fruit Frozen (a cold slushie made of star fruit)--Delicious! Next it was a 45 minute boat ride down river to the lodge..When we arrived we again were greeted by a cold wash cloth to wipe away some of the sweat and dirt from our travels..again fantastic service! Our cabana or jungle hut was wonderful..Although it was not air conditioned, it didn't matter as we had a ceiling fan and screened-in windows to allow a good airflow. The oversized king bed was turned down with clean cotton sheets and a huge bed-covering mosquito net. On the floor were two sets of bedroom slippers on either side of the bed for my wife and I. At the end of the bed were two cotton bath robes for our use. In the living area were two hammocks and two chairs.The shower had one of those huge shower heads and plenty of hot water..it too was awesome. The breakfast was average but the dinner and lunches were fabulous! The staff was 6-star! Everything you could want or need they got for you. The excursions were exceptional! Be warned however, (it was in the booklet but I failed to read it--my fault) that twice a day the electricity is turned off to conserve the environment (4pm-6pm) and (11pm-4am). The grounds are immaculate with flowers and trees and thousands of birds that wake you up early with their cute songs. Overall, I wish we had one more day there..this place is an eden in the jungle! All guides speak fluent English and are so kind and compassionate. This place is wonderful...Our stay was a 3 day/2 night package.

All indications is that for those who like creature comforts, this is the best way to experience Peru's vast rain forest/jungle, which covers 60% of the country. The place is at the top of the scale for "rustic". It is not "luxurious" in the traditional sense - tho it does serve good croissants for breakfast, quite a feat for being in the middle of the jungle...

Management was almost invisible during our 3 night stay (the duration I recommend), but the excursions were well organized, and our guide (Annabel) was excellent, with an uncanny ability for spotting wildlife. (Tip: be sure to do the Sandoval Lake excursion, even though it starts at 6:00 a.m. and involves a longish/roughish hike.) The Canopy Walk is another highlight. Be sure to hook up with a guide during the briefing session on the first evening.

The food is good, given the location in the middle of nowhere, and the dining hall/reception area is entrancing (inspired by the local indigenous style of building).

I was slightly annoyed by the sound during daylight hours of illegal gold miners dredging immediately across the river from the lodge. Other TripAdvisor commmentators have complained about this. I am not convinced Inkaterra does all it can to get the authorities to shut them down.

Travel tips: 1) Do not try to reserve on-line (either with Inkaterra or with consolidators like Expedia), as from my experience they always indicate only overpriced suites are available or that the place is fully booked, when this is NOT the case. Instead, go through a good travel agency, such as Peru's Condor Travel. 2) Try to get a cabana (out of 35 in total) facing the river (Madre De Dios); 3) avoid the rainy season (Jan-Mar).

Room Tip: Try to get close to the river, but all the cabanas are great.
