Good home made food; amazing hosts; green magic just outside the hammock.. Nicely placed between forest and river, l'Auberge offers the possibility of sleeping in a hammock outside or in a bed inside and has all the "luxuries" we needed, like a flushing toilet and an extraordinary open-shower (with privacy!)... The hosts, Hélène and Eric, made us feel like at home! Night walks in the forest; swimming and kayaking in the river; listening to the nature waking-up; watching the amazing night-sky...all these activities and more were possible there..! What else can I say? An extraordinary place either for the start of an adventure, either for a small nature get-away..! Totally and definitely recommended !

If the wilderness calls you, but you still enjoy nice food, a cold beer, and good sleep, then this could be the place for you. Turn off your cellphone and enjoy swimming or kayaking in the river, exploring the forest, and ignoring the outside world. Helene and Eric are excellent hosts, who make great food, and are keen to share their experiences of Guyanais life with you. For accommodation, there are options to sleep indoors or in hammocks in a general "dorm" (which has overhead shelter). Mosquito grilles and nets are available, although having some repellent is a good idea too. The rooms can get quite warm, particularly if you close the wooden shutters but a quick shower with water pumped from the river will soon have you feeling better. You also have the luxury of flushing toilets. Nearby you can visit the town of Cacao that was established forty years ago to welcome Hmong refugees. There is a cool butterfly museum and lots of great food centrally located there. At the Auberge, the bar and dining area has a pool table, and you can also play board games or see more information about the area. A really great place to relax and escape. Swimming in the river was bliss.

I stayed at Auberge des Orpailleurs for 2 days with a group of 26 people. The food was very good. For sleeping, there is a choice of hammocks and beds: I chose the hammocks and it was very easy to sleep even though it was my first time in a hammock. The place has a beautiful garden. There is a river where you can swim and they also have kayaks to get a first experience of the Amazonian rivers. You can also walk directly into the rainforest. With a car you can drive to Cacao village.

We were a large group (approximately 25 people) travelling through the French Guyana. This was the starting point of our journey in this amazing place. Hélène and Eric, our hosts, are a lovely couple and did everything to make us feel happy and confortable. Hélène's english is impecable and we communicated without any problem. She taught us how to build our hammock in the correct way! The nights spend there are lovely, listening to several animals nearby. The home made food was excellent. The kayaking activities are astonishing and so are the walks in the jungle!

I stayed at L'Auberge des Orpailleurs for two nights as part of a group of 26 people. Helene and Eric were very friendly hosts and catered nicely to our needs. Some of us where sleeping in hammocks while others slept in cabins. While the hammocks had moskito nets, the bed in the rooms dont. The windows in the rooms have nets, but a lot of moskitors can enter through the door and broken elements of the window nets. All the facilities are clean and even for 26 people, the number of toilets and showers were sufficient. The food was generally very good. The auberge is located next to a river that provides swimming opportunities. A number of canoes are available to explore the river. I would come here again any time.
