They call themselves an "Eco lodge" which is merely an excuse to provide inferior accommodations and everything else. The rooms are terrible with crappy beds, lousy bedding, skimpy towels, no air conditioning despite the heat and humidity, no amenities at all just a single cheap tacky soap dispenser between the shower and sink, terrible lighting, bugs everywhere, a sponge rubber pillow, cheap tacky furniture and not even a bedside table on which to put a clock or watch. There's not even a cupboard to hang clothes or a single drawer. There was no hot water just luke warm. On the other hand it is worth putting up with it for a two days as the wildlife viewing is incredible. We twice saw a herd of 30-50 Pygmy ele pants, orangutans, proboscis monkeys and macaques, lots of birds and just traveling up and down the river was wonderful. Make sure you go for a cruise after dark and ask to see the firefly tree right across from the lodge. It will make any Christmas tree you've ever seen look pale.
