My husband and I along with another couple stayed here for two nights while visiting the secondary jungle. We all highly recommend staying at this place.The included breakfast in our very reasonable room rate (we paid cash as we find that we can always get a much better room rate per person deal!) was delicious and generous featuring freshly made coffee and squeezed juices, homemade breads and jams, eggs cooked the way you like them along with fresh fruit. Our room was actually quite clean considering the fact that you are in the jungle and the bed was indeed very comfortable. Both my husband and I slept quite well both nights as this hotel/ b&b is located in a very quiet area of town. Our delightful thatch roofed cabana also featured a very simple yet functional bathroom with hot water for showers. I would probably suggest that you bring your own towels, shampoo and soap, especially if you are kind of a fussy person about these types of things, although we certainly had no problem at all using what we were offered. We quite enjoyed swimming in the fresh water pool in the evenings. There was even a fire pit with several hammocks to relax in. The garden walkways are quite lovely as was the view of the river! There was also a small bar where you can access free WiFi and order drinks. There was also very secure parking available within the hotel confines. We were located only a 5 to 10 minute walk from the town where we met up with many mischievous and playful monkeys on our way to taking a canoe trip down the river. We enjoyed our conversations with the very kind and welcoming owner of this delightful hotel. Remember though, you are going to find bugs absolutely everywhere especially during the rainy season and even in your room...you are venturing into the Amazon rain forest after all!
