I would echo the other reviews, in that the boat tours and jungle treks were great. Alex, our guide, was knowledgeable, witty and helpful. The village is almost exactly what we had expected, with the room basic but adequate (no creepy-crawlies managed to get in) and the buffet meals were pretty good. However, this is rain forest and doesn't it just rain, every day, and for varying lengths of time. We were soaked to the skin for most of the time and there is no drying/laundry service and, in 100% humidity, there is no point in using a washing line! And you have only taken a small weight of luggage with you - so very few extra clothes. The 12v lighting seemed to fail quickly each night so visitors must take a torch, perhaps a head torch would be a good idea, and a cigarette lighter (because the matches soon get wet and don't work) is a must to light the hotel-issue candles.
The wildlife is exciting and varied - it even comes to see you, in that there was a large tarantula living in the restaurant cactus!
On balance we were ready to leave after 2 nights and the third day was uncomfortable and we were counting down to our release back to Manaus and to our luggage with clean clothes!
Take, and use, lots of Deet. You should also consider having a yellow fever jab and a daily malarone pill against malaria.
