I had mixed feelings after reading some of the reviews, but glad that I decided to go. The Cuyabeno area is just fantastic with lots of wildlife to see.
The lodge has a very friendly staff, the guide (David) was excellent, pointing out lots of animals on our tours.
The double rooms were clean, with mosquito nets, hot shower and even had electricity in the bathrooms.
Overall, great experience for the money you pay.
