On the positive side the people who work at the lodge were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the food they provided was fresh, and well cooked. The guides who took us out for our day trips worked long hours in the hotel after being out in the jungle with us all day, and so to those people I am thankful.
The lodge is poorly built and maintained, the rooms are not sealed properly so there was a constant stream of creepy crawlies in the room that needed to be evicted, one one occasion it was a Tarantula as big as my hand!
The shower fluctuated between water so hot it was mostly steam and cold water making it very difficult to wash, without risking losing your skin.
Very oddly the lodge has a nice well maintained swimming pool, which was a lovely way to end the day after being out in the jungle.
Having met other people who are travelling through this part of Ecuador there is far better out there...
