Reviews for Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica
Overall - this was a great hotel. The service was really, really good - I enjoyed the food (especially that there were good vegetarian options), the rooms were comfortable (given that they are eco-friendly), and the guided tours were really special. It was fun to hear the noises of the rainforest at all hours and it was also cool to wake up with the sun.

If you are looking for Wi-Fi, 24 hour a day electricity and air conditioning, this is not for you. However, if you want to understand and experience the Rain Forest this is the perfect setting and way to achieve your goal. You sleep in a luxurious hut. Ours actually overlooked the Madre de Dios river. I was in my screened foyer of my hut watching the water flow by. The lodge itself was stunning. The food was very good, though not excellent. Again, it's not the food that should bring you there, it the Rain Forest. You experience that with the absolutely excellent guides and tours that are available. Be prepared to walk. The Sandoval tour was about 7 km of walking. The forest comes alive with the knowledge and absolute passion expressed by the guides. There are night boat rides, night walks and even a treetop canopy walk. The whole thing explains to you the true meaning of biodiversity and for me was life changing.
Lodge and guides are great, but the middle lodging need some more attention lack of atmosphere and vibes make it a bit too quiet and if you dont go in excursion there is really not much to do. Evening are also very quiet. The food is good although one of us got sick on first day and 4 other people in different groups as well. With this price tag you would expect a bit more activities or things to do in the hotel area to make it a bit more lively.
My wife and I finished the last leg of our trip to Peru, by spending 4 days/ 3 nights at the Inkaterra Amazonica to experience a stay in the rain forest. On arrival at Puerto Maldonado the guide told us that once we got to the Lodge there would be cellphones or wifi ! Even though we were a little dismayed at first, we got into the spirit of not being tied down to emails/voicemail and text messages etc. NO bad political news etc. it worked out quite well. The Lodger itself is well laid out, with nice cabanas and overall attentive service. We found the staff to be very polite and friendly and willing to accommodate any reasonable request. We were upgraded to a cabana by the river bank and had a beautiful view of the river. Food was Ok, nothing spectacular, but adequate choices to satisfy all tastes, albeit a Little monotonous with menu items being repeated. Not having electricity between 11pm to 4 am and 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm made it slightly inconvenient when the temperatures were warm - sleeping was difficult. Some of the excursions were good and some just so so. Some of the guides spoke excellent English, whiles a few struggled to answer questions. You do not see much fauna, mostly flora. Unlike In Africa , where you encounter wild animals all the time, due to the thick rain forest you see more of exotic plants, trees, insects and birds. The only cayman we saw during the night boat ride were small ones , less than 2 ft long. The Lodge could do more to have some board games and a collection of books ( not just a handful of obscure titles). We managed to enjoy ourselves,meeting and talking to other guests, but a times , time did hang heavy on our hands. it was also annoying that even thought the room charges are pretty heavy, we had to pay for nay drink other than water!!! Overall a good place to visit, but they can elevate it from a GOOD to an EXCELLENT rating with better and more food choices, including soft drinks, wine and beer and providing some other entertainment options for guests. The canopy walk, the Fruit plantations and canoe ride in the creek were very good excursions. The trip to the lake received mixed reviews form some of the people who went on it - very long and in the end did not see much of wildlife. For people interested in seeign birds, the trip tot he clay lick is highly recommended - have to get up very ealry to do this.

The hacienda was really nice, the staff excellent and the many varied trips were good. The food was good but the dinner menu was the same every evening with not a great deal of choice. Saw lots of insects, birds, animals, spiders, snakes etc. Best advice-keep covered up!! Over a month later Iâ€™ve still got the remains of the countless insect bites on my arms.
