We stayed here for 2 nights in March 2012 on a tour with Caravan Tours. We were a little apprehensive because the reviews made this place seem really rustic. The cabins were clean and comfortable with nice privacy curtains. There was enough roof overhang to keep even the hardest rain out and the ceiling fan kept the room comfortable. There were large iguanas in the trees along the river and a sloth living in a tree next to one of the cabins. We had some of the best meals of our 10-day tour here with very fresh food and excellent table service. I was amazed at how fresh and good the meals were here in the jungle a 2 hour boat ride from anything. The boat tours featured eagle-eyed wildlife spotters that found wildlife that was very hard to see. The boats had good life-jackets for everyone and also ponchos in case of rain. We only had the howler-monkeys the second morning and they waited until almost 6am before serenading us. I actually felt cheated at not being awakened by howler-monkeys on the first morning. The wake-up calls were unique with a staff member offering coffee, tea, or hot chocolate along with a knock at your door.
