The lodge is located around 3 hours drive from Quito, in a secondary forest. Semi attached wooden buildings provide a spacious room and bathroom. Besides insects, birds, and butterflies it's very peaceful and quiet. The staff is lovely and you should speak at least a little bit of Spanish as not all are fluent in English, nevertheless they are so...

This was our 1st visit to the rain forest with our 3 teenagers. The hotel had a very beautiful setting with a pool and you could walk to the river with a sand beach. The staff is very helpful and the food is delicious they even accommodated my vegetarian daughter with different choices nightly. The boys stayed in a rustic...

We stayed three nights at "Hakuna Matata" and were very pleased with everything. A comfy and very clean accomodation, a beautiful palm tree pool, tasty cuisine and very friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable. As far as activities are concerned the horseback riding and the chocolate workshop can be recommended. Thanks to Cosme who is also the caretaker and...

It is remote in its location - we drove several miles down a long dirt road before reaching Hakuna Matata. Once there, you need to drive across a suspended bridge to reach the property. Our van was too big for the bridge so we had to hop in a pick up truck to reach the actual entrance. As we wearily...

Our group of three was met at the parking lot by a contingent of attendants willing (even eager) to shoulder the burden of luggage. That might be the norm for some, but it's a first for any of our many birding trips into the Neotropics. As we ascended the many steps we felt a bit like climbers in the Himalayas...

I really enjoyed being in Hakuna Matata! The rooms are nice, comfortable and very clean. There are lots of activities or you just spend some relaxing time in the swimming pool or at the river beach. The Restaurant offers delicious international cuisine and the staff is friendly! I had a blast!

Relax next to the palm tree shaped pool , walk down one of the numerous paths through the rain forest around the property, or enjoy a delicious meal in their on site restaurant. The Hosteria Hakuna Matata is an oasis that allows you to relax and enjoy.

We were getting towards the end of our activity adventure in Ecuador by the time we reached here, so we were ready to chill. We really liked the staff and the open restaurant/bar so we felt very welcome and relaxed. The noise of the jungle was brilliant! The rooms were big and clean, with good netting at the windows so...

Our trip to Hakuna Matata started off as a bit of a disaster. The road from Quito to Tena was washed out, and by the time we doubled back our three hour trip became 9 thus arriving at Hakuna Matata after dark. The property is three miles off the main road on a dirt road and across a single lane...

The lodge reminded me of being at sleep away camp as a kid. It's very clean and comfortable. The tour guides were fantastic and the overall Amazon experience was very well done. It's a great getaway for families, and small groups who like adventure. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. However, I highly recommend brushing up...
