Amazon Ecopark Jungle Lodge
Ranked #2 of 191 Specialty Lodging in Manaus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The lodge is located right in the forest / jungle and allows guests to experience something of life in the jungle. The rooms are basically wooden huts. Do not expect the comfort of a luxurious hotel, but in the rooms there are comfortable bed, toilet, bath and closets. The service of the staff is excellent (remarkable Jacob, receipt), knowledgeable guides and great food. The lodge includes full meals excluding drinks, which are required to pay in addition.

The lodging is in a natural environment with a scenic walk from the pier. The rooms were nice even though the AC was noisy so you'll have to turn the AC off and open the window (with mosquito netting) if you can't sleep with noise. Breakfast and dinner were included but you had to get there early before the food disappeared as they were self served buffet food. Although there were covers on the dishes, some of the food was still covered with flies as covers were lifted off and not put back properly when food were being taken from the plates.

It is really amazing place, to get there you have to go by bout about 20min by river - so better to order a transfer. At night time you can see alligators heads staring on you - spooky. When you get to lodge it is like paradise...real nature. Service is good, variety of food is good as well. You will always find beef and fish on buffet table and of course fruits! Most of the staff do not speak English. They offer some tours which are quite interesting, definitely try piranha fishing :) Place highly recommended!

Room Tip: It is a place for calm and relaxing holidays.

We were on a cruise ship but booked a bungalow room through Booking.com at a great rate, though as expected, the transfers (car/boat) from Manaus centre were relatively expensive (arranged direct with the Lodge). Could have taken local taxi to the marina and paid for boat separately. BUT our trip cost a lot less than the cruise company's tour price!
The lodge is set in near idyllic surroundings whilst still close to city (note air traffic spoils sense of complete isolation) and the reception, restaurant and trails through the site are all delightful. The Taruma river is part of the Rio Negro and, as such, is free of mosquitos BUT this means that the food chain for wild life is limited compared to the mainstream Amazon and we unfortunately saw very little whilst we were there. Exceptions to this were the monkey island reserve (semi-captive animals) and the room maid's pet macaw! OK there were some birds looking for scraps in the restaurant and various lizards everywhere (some sizeable!).But overall the wildlife experience was non-existent. We were also very disappointed that the lodge has NO CANOPY BOARDWALK despite still being advertised at reception. The tours offered were enjoyable and our guide was knowledgeable. We had a very nice sunrise trip by canoe where the view of the sun coming up over nearly still water was unforgettable - but again not an opportunity to see fauna. The bungalows are very well laid out and the rooms are clean and comfortable with aircon and we did not find the accomodation small and the bathroom was certainly more than adequate. The restaurant food was plentiful and good. The barman makes a great caipirinha!.

This review is for the Amazon Eco Park on the Taruma Acu River. We were three girl friends not really wanting to rough it but not wanting somewhere very expensive so this was just perfect. Realising from the start we were in the Jungle, we thought it an absolutely fabulous experience! Definitely organise with the lodge their transport --- it would have been difficult and a bit scary to try to find it yourself and their transport service from Manaus is reliable and fun on the river. The views are amazing. Of course it is hot and humid! It is the jungle and of course there are flying insects but there were less than we expected. Apparently the black water is more acidic and there are less mozzies! The Manager George [of the Jungle!] was marvelous and as a guide to the monkey reserve was an excellent translator and very knowledgable ! It was our first time to the region but we would love to go again. We thought the food was good- buffet style choices- not a five star glamorous restaurant for those of you who want 'cuisine' but again it is an Eco lodge so more simple and easy seems to suit the whole experience. The restaurant is an open air kind of Boma and we loved it. The pool is beautiful -again jungle and natural so you share it with the little red fish that live there. One of us did not dare go in, so that is not for everyone ,but, I enjoyed and it was certainly a first ! The rooms were simple and charming --- air con, clean, a small fridge, cold showers and netted windows with jungle at the door ! Again, not five star glamour bur certainly good, especially when you consider the cost. We shared 3 in a bedroom which suited us. The river trips are lovely -the night time one, exciting, although that particular guide did not speak English so we did not learn a lot. As I do not speak Portugeuse I simply enjoyed the smell of the river and the sound of the frogs and other nocturnals. We went for a jungle experience without looking for danger and for this reason I give 'five stars' for the overall experience we had. There are sloths in the trees and scarlet macaws visiting for breakfast ! Everywhere you look you see beauty and feel nature ---this is what we wanted. It was lovely to sit on the bigger boat on the jetty and watch the sun set and there is great peace ! Thank you Brazil --- the Amazon is awesome !

Room Tip: We were lucky with our little bungalow--- the little yellow house - but they all looked similar and...

If you are looking for the hardcore jungle survival trip, this is not the solution. The "hotel" is located at a small river bank, and is equipped with beach chairs, a bar, a restaurant, an understocked shop and a pool. It is more in line with a luxury tourist resort, than a bare-bones jungle lodge. The place is very spacious, and you can truly get a sense of all the natural noises and atmosphere of the jungle, all while relaxing in a recliner with a colorful drink. The eco park excels at comfort, so if you are looking to experience the amazon in a comfortable but set-up environment, than this is the place for you.

The rooms are very cozy and well decorated, with a great sized shower with running hot water. The walls are however a bit too thin, and it wont take too much noise for you to guess what your neighbors are doing. The food was also excellent both the breakfast and dinner was more than either of us expected.

Although the lodge is situated in a beautiful area, it is hard to reach, and all transportation is conducted by the hotel, at a very costly fee. The tours are the only events available for entertainment at the lodge, unfortunately they are very staged, and are tailored for tourists who don't actually want to come into close contact with the wilderness.

The staff was a mix of overly friendly and negligent, some will go above and beyond to help and others will try and ignore you into compliance.

We spent 5 days there and it was too long, maybe 2 or 3 days would have sufficed.

It was our first time at the forest and we really enjoyed our stay at the Park. It is close to Manaus and a good spot to get your day trips from. The food was really good as well as the caipirinhas. A interesting natural swiming pool as well and kind service. No luxury like frigobar in the Bangalos but I guess this is part of a genuine experience. The only thing they could provide more would be free drinking water during the meals. It is really humid and one cant just buy or drink enough water.
