“Great experience in Amazon jungle”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We stayed there two nights. When we got to their parking place before heading to the lodge by boat, we were surprised by how dirty it was. We were very happy to see how opposite the actual place was. We liked the fact that there was no electricity in our room. We had great and plentiful food. One of the hotel staff who is a member of the Hourani tribe took us for a walk around the jungle. We did not see many animals except in AmaZOOnico. After the visit in AmaZOOnico, we tubed back in the river. We really enjoyed the whole experience.

We came here on a whim while traveling through Ecuador. It was definitely a highlight of the trip. Getting to the lodge is an experience in itself. The canoe ride really makes you feel like you are going somewhere very secluded. The food was wonderful...I looked forward to every meal. I recommend going on a jungle hike. You will see things you have only read about. The atmosphere of the lodge was very relaxing, and we enjoyed getting to know fellow travelers.
You won't regret coming here!

The staff at Liana lodge were very welcoming, the rooms were fabulous and the food was plentiful. We saw loads of monkeys and birds and insects on the different tours as well as all the animals at Amazoonico. The only slightly annoying thing was the extra expenses for extra tours. It was advertised as 3 days and 2 nights but this only really meant one day of tours. Anything outside of this time was added to the bill. I only found this out at the end so only just had enough money. Overall though, it was a great experience and I would recommend.

We loved this place but didnt see any animals (except at zoonica). Food/ambience was wonderful, but we expected to hear more jungle sounds and see some animals. we will return to the jungle, but to a place deeper in the jungle.

Fantastic experience, getting there from Quito required a bus then canoe down the river into the jungle. Great food, wonderful atmosphere in the dining room. A visit to the animal refuge is a must and a worthy donation.Falling asleep after blowing out the candles ( and checking the bed for spiders and bugs)listening to the jungle noises if fantastic experience. I could have watched the monkeys playing in the trees around the cabin all day!

Room Tip: check the room for spiders and bugs, they are huge you cant miss them!

My husband and I felt at home in the Rainforest at Liana Lodge. It was a spiritual place surrounded my jungle on the banks of the river. From the moment we arrived, we knew this was a special place. The jungle hike was fascinating (though our guide lacked enthusiasm). Amazoonica proved to be a very worthy refuge. The visit to the local Quichua family was enlightening and genuine. The staff was lovely and knowledgeable. The meals were delicious. The candlelit rooms were romantic and spotless. The water was always hot. I highly recommend a cocktail on the swing overlooking the river at sunset. I will never forget the sounds of the Amazon, the steamy air, and the peoples. HIGHLY RECOMMEND LIANA LODGE!!! It is the best lodge for those who have limited time.

Amazing: close to Tena and once you're there it seems you are in the middle of the forest. Good food, clean and friendly. A good mix between local authenticity and European professionalism.
