Different Than Expected
A mixture of enjoyment and disappointment. I had three nights in a cabana which was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and screened for protect from insects. There were excellent amenities, with toiletries provided. I half expected lizards, spiders etcetera, but none eventuated. Bottled water was provided. It was very hot when I visited in early November, usually around 40c. There is no airconditioning,but ceiling fans were provided. Electricity in general is only available for a few hours in the morning and the evening. Candles are provided for night vision. The main lodged which entailed the dining area was exceptionally good, as was the food which was fantastic.The staff were outstanding, especially Willy and Ray behind the bar, Karina who helped in the kitchen and serving tables. A standout was Carlos who became the peacemaker when I had a disagreement with one of the Guides, Louis. Some of the tours were quite taxing physically. No one asked as to your level of fitness, and at times it was hard to keep up with Louis on the 5000mtre trec to the lake to see the Giant otters. Overall it ticked the box for having been to the Amazon, but while you could hear ocassional monkeys, there was little wildlife to be seen,they most likely having gone much further into the jungle in what is essentially farming communities or guest lodges along the Amazon River.
Great wildlife reserve in the southern Amazonian region of Peru.
The way to Inkaterra Amazonia Lodge is by boat. We think that's how all of their supplies come in. We spent three nights and two full days for excursions there in November, just the beginning of the "rainy season." The accommodations are in cabanas, with screen around and mosquito netting over the beds. Individual bathrooms in each unit. The screened "porch" area in the front is a great place to rest between excursions. The lodge assigns "excursion guides" to help you plan excursions and then take you on them. We were a group of two. But groups of 10 or more were also there and they handled it with precision. We had trips up the river at night to see wildlife, to local lakes for wildlife, and to a farm which provides some of the produce for the lodge. Since wildlife don't follow our human "sleep-in" routines, we had to get up one morning at 5, and have a brief breakfast before heading out, but there was always time to relax in the middle of the day. The food was very good, considering that they have to bring everything in. Electricity goes out for a few hours in the afternoon and some hours overnight, but it's manageable.
We stayed for two nights, which was classy for us; just enough time for all the expedition and experiences the lodge had ready for us. The rooms are surprisingly comfortable. the food was great from breakfast to dinner. Be ready for many mosquitoes!!!
Not quite what I expected but still nice
Visited for 3 nights with my family. We had 3 rooms and strangely they gave my husband and I the worst room out of the 3 which in fact was the worst room in the entire lodge. Room 1 is super un private and noisy as each guest walks past your room numerous times per day. After taking my issue up with my host she acknowledged this was true and luckily there was 1 free room elsewhere which we moved to after dinner. Inconvenient to pack up and move but very much worth it. Hard to sum up this resort. From the photos I was expecting it to be a bit more upscale however I kept reminding myself that we were deep in the amazon and it was actually quite incredible. Sadly it rained most of the tome as it was the rainy season so things felt damp all the time and being an eco lodge they didn’t change your towels unless I asked myself. My linen was not changed at all even though it did get dirty and also felt damp. The common areas in the restaurant could definitely be improved, carpets were stained and full of crumbs. Overall the service in the restaurant was most good and the food was good too. Guides were wonderful and my host was very helpful however never really saw any senior management. Spoke to someone who I think was resort manager however he was unsmiling and not to approachable. Small massage spa which was actually outstanding. If you going try fit one in. Overall I really enjoyed the Amazon, awesome experience and considering the location and proximity to the town they did well indeed.
Amazing amazon adventure!
Had an absolutely amazing adventure in Peru and I would suggest this to anyone even families with children 12+. The staff was amazing and shout-outs to Gustavo who took care of us during our time at Inkaterra.
