“Relaxing EcoLodge with beautiful views”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We were a little bit concerned after reading the review about the dogs, but they were kept separately so there was no issue with that.

The Lodge is situated right on the riverbank in a beautiful location. Our guides, Christian and Raul, were outstanding!! We have seen loads of different places and animals and the activities included cycling, kayaking and hiking.

We didn't speak to Michel and his wife much, but when we did they were really polite and helpful.

Overall, we would definitely recommend this unforgettable jungle experience!

This is my first review, and I only right it as a public safety measure to parents who choose to stay here. The lodge is nice, and the beginning of our experience here was very nice. On the morning of 6/25/2013, after a pleasant breakfast my daughter was viciously attacked by one of the four unrestrained Pit Bulls kept on the property by the owners of the lodge. My 8 year old suffered two severe punctures that went down to the cheekbone. Even though Jean Pierre was very responsive to the attack, there was no medical help available in Puerto Maldando. We had to evacuate to Lima to have emergency plastic surgery performed. After that, we had to cancel the rest of our vacation to return to the United States to continue medical treatment.

Jean Paul and Michel have responded honorably by covering our medical and transportation change expenses.

If you choose to go to the lodge, please demand that the dogs are removed and this unsafe environment no longer exists for unsuspecting guests.

We are very sorry about the incident. The dogs have been in the lodge since 2009 and we opened to public on 2010, and the dogs have never shown any agressive behavior. We are very suprised abut this incident and we want to give you our most sincere apology.
The dogs have been removed from the property.
We have built a fence of 650m2 to keep the dogs inside 24/7.
Sorry again for the inconvenience, and be shure that this wil never happen again.

Pros: Great guide (Jackson) arranged by the Lodge, pretty views of the river, loved the private balcony, fresh fruit juices, cold beer, lovely couple running the place with very friendly dogs (4 of them!), loved going to sleep to the chirping of monkeys and waking up to the birds! Overall great value compared to other options and once they are done the renos we expect the price will go up (see below)

Cons: Overall minor and likely just realities of a geniune ecolodge but here we go - Breakfast was the same every day (scrambled eggs, white bread, and fruit), no hot water, toilet kind of smelled...

Note: They are completing an extension of the property to have a lovely bar and restaurant. It will be elevated with views of the jungle and the river - looking forward to seeing the pictures, we think it will really spruce up the place

Had an excellent stay at the Sotupa Eco House over the course of 4 days. Our hosts were very hospitable and accommodating during our stay in the jungle and we had an excellent, very knowledgable guide. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of their brand new dining room & kitchen which is nearly complete!!

Really nice for all family.
Beautiful place and very careful people. Is good for a relaxing vacation.
Excellent food too.
Very confortable bedrooms and so clean.
Just a little bit far, but in middle of the jungle

Our stay at the Sotupa Eco House was the highlight of our 17 day trip to Peru. We loved the area, the dogs, the staff and our guide, Efrain, was amazing. The wildlife in the area is diverse and very interesting and can be appreciated from this wonderful lodge. I would absolutely tell friends to go here if they were staying near Puerto Maldonado.

We stayed at Sotupa in octobre, taking the 4d/3n programme. We were picked up at the airport by our friendly guide Ifra. Our stay at Sotupa was great. The staff was very nice (especially Raoul) and rooms were clean. Although the lodge in itself was rather basic (they are still improving the infrastructure), we had everything we needed. The location is fantastic, with a beautiful view over the river and a nice hang-out place.However, the food could have been better in a sense that it could be more varied. Breakfast, for example was very simple, and everyday the same. We also missed a dessert or a piece of fruit after lunch or dinner. Another detail was that we couldn't lock our door or didn't have a safe place to leave our valuables.

The programme was very good, though the first 2 days were a bit less interesting and felt like we had to do something to just fill our time. However, the other days were great and we saw and did lots of cool things.

We can definitely recommend Sotupa if you are looking for a nice place in the middle of the jungle and want good value for your money.
