Reviewed 7 August 2016

This lodge is set in a beautiful location, with well sized rooms. However, we were the only couple staying there and it was easy to see why. The food was cheap and poorly cooked, the bedsheets and did not meet any of my expectations, especially for the price which was nearly triple what we had paid for other hotels in touristy parts of Peru.

All in all, a disappointing stay and I would not recommend staying here.

They get a top rating for being a great jungle lodge-this is the real jungle, don't expect to be pampered. Jean-Pierre handled all our taxis and booked adventures timely. He had very good drivers and guides. His lodge staff was hard-working and friendly. They made delicious food (3 meals per day included) and kept the lodge clean. All were very trustworthy. We enjoyed a tour to Lago Sandoval and the nighttime caiman hunting as well as kayaking (J-P watched us to be sure we were safe). Sotupa is 30 minutes from the airport, so not too close or too far. One of our rooms had trouble locking, but the screens were good!! Monkeys visit every day. Enjoy!!

We stayed three nights with the full package including all activities (jungle walks, caimans and birds spotting,...). The overall place is very pretty. Rooms are large and clean, together with a lovely view. Our room had warm water, electricity and a nice private balcony with view on the river. You sleep amongst animals (goes with the continuous sound of the jungle at night) and wake up with squirrels, birds and monkeys. People were kind and our guide, Boris, was lovely. We saw wonderful scenery and animals. The kayak and the national parks were beautiful but you should expect to suffer from heat and sun. The activities are quite tough for someone who wouldn't practice any sport at all, so come prepared.

We had a very pleasant time, however, we thought it was a little pricey for what we got. We would have expected more choice in food and beverages (real coffee in the morning for example and more than one choice at dinner). It would be good to provide snacks for the outdoor experiences (dried fruits and water for example for the kayak) and before going, discuss with the client about difficulties of the activity.

Overall I would recommend sotupa if you aren't on a tight budget, but come prepared for the activities!

Located a few miles away from the city, Sotupa House provides exquisite views on the Tambopata river, nice lodging and a great place to relax. Upon arrival we were surprised with lunch awaiting us. The meals here are delicious. The cook custom made a different vegetarian and meat option each meal. Fresh ingredients were used from the land each day. Jean Pierre was a genuine host and provided us with a boat tour of the river, transport to and from the airport and Hymie was a great driver.
Sotupa House is a great place to unplug, relax and unwind. Sotupa does offer options for excursions but are pricey do to its location.

This was good for money. Close to town and activities available if wanted. Food was available and was sufficient. The best of this place was the views of the river from the high ground where the building was.
