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.
