I stayed at Posada Amazonas for a few days at the end of April 2012, and I enjoyed every part of it. The food was great, the guides were wonderful, and the staff was helpful & flexible. We were lucky in that it didn't rain often, but when it did, the rain wasn't too heavy and didn't last very long. The side trips -- off to see a local farmer, or to a local botanical preserve -- were fascinating.
One of the most appealing things to me about it was that the owners are trying really hard to minimize their impact on the jungle. In some ways this took some getting used to -- for example, they ask you to only use biodegradable shampoo, etc. because it all goes into the compost system. But it also meant that we ended up having a much more "natural" experience, more like really staying in the jungle, as opposed to staying in a tourist-oriented petting zoo.
Highly recommended.

I work in the development of sustainable eco tourism and resources nationally in the US and internationally. This is one of the top 3 best resorts I have been to , worked with or heard of. Unique and highly functioning partnership between Peruvian owned company and a Native Community. Interpretation A+ Resources A+ Greenscore A+ Naturalists A+ food accommodations and cleanliness A+. I do recommend that one have earplugs not to ward off the jungle but to ward off the sound of rollerbags on platform walkways for the early departure boats btw 4am and 8am daily. Hotel could make a big improvement to this by simply adding a few large rubber wheeled carts or wheel barrows they can use elsewhere on the property to move these bags vs rolling them on the decks

Room Tip: all rooms are great - its open air to jungle sounds

People couldn't haven't been friendlier or more knowledgable. We arrived Sunday evening and stayed thru Friday afternoon...a longer visit than most yet wouldn't have changed a thing. I was traveling with my 15 year old son...I'm 56....and we both had a fantastic time. Bedrooms are open on one side to the jungle..took getting used to. Amazing how noisy the jungle is first thing in the morning!

I stayed at this place for three days (two nights). It was absolutly amazing. Friendly staff were always around ready to help & the scenery was beautifull. it was a unique and amazing experience to stay at this outdoor / indoor lodge. I liked how the rooms were semi open will no electricity. Waking up to the open jungle like that in the morning was just perfect!

I spent the last night of my 5 night trip hereThe rooms, dining area etc are clean. The mosquito nets work great. I suggest if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs. whether you have a noisy neighbor or the sounds of the jungles may keep you awake. The food was absolutely amazing. There is no electricity, just candles & kerosene lamps. The washrooms are in your room and you get hot water which is a nice after a few days of cold showers. The biggest downfall to this place is the size. It is huge. It is the closest ecolodge so it gets alot of visitors. But when you stay at the other two hotels and they have 18 or 30 rooms, this is so big. At the TRC or Refugio you have more quiet time and hammocks and places to be by yourself or visit with others. I found this place hard to do that. And because the lodge was completely full, the lines you wait in to get your meals is sooo long.

My wife and I spent 2 nights and 3 days there and had a great time. The weather was Hot and humid (to be expected) but had a lot of rain. That means that the parrots don't go to the clay lick, one of the reasons I personally went, but that's a crap shoot. We had Juan Carlos as a guide and he was great, very informative and willing to please, hopefully you can get him as well. The rooms were what we expected and the idea of being open to the jungle was no problem, no little critters. Food was good for the amount of time we spent there. One of the things we thought of was there wasn't a lot of handicraft products made by locals, could be more than Tee shirts. We thought as this was the final few days of our vacation we would load up on trinkets, but didn't happen.

Room Tip: We read reviews and before we got there we split our suitcases into one that we could share so you d...

Approximately 1.5 hours by bus and boat from Puerto Maldonado, this lodge has no fewer than 30 rooms (and seemingly almost as many guides) and, as such, was much larger than I had anticipated - and more touristy too. Set guided tours (early morning to night-time expeditions) are on offer and are of varying quality. I thought the ox-bow lake trip was by far the most worthwhile. Snacks, fruit and fresh water are in plentiful supply at all times of the day but the set breakfasts, lunches and dinners are of fairly mediocre quality and served up canteen style. Recent installation of hot water showers in all rooms was a most pleasant surprise!
