I absolutely loved the lodge! Very relaxing, the nicest staff ever. Simple cabins on stilts, no electricity apart from the main house, same goes for WiFi (I believe some cabins do have electricity, but loved the candle lit option more). At night live fire is available in the main house. Some of the better food experienced in Ecuador served by very kind chef from Otovalo. Favorite activity was a 5 hour hike through forest, we saw 3 kinds of monkeys and many other things, and then arrived at a lovely clear jungle river. Other activities also quite enjoyable, as well as company of the young but very knowledgeable and kichwa guide. However no need to even leave the room for a great time - squirrel monkeys resident in the lodge came around several times a day either close to loge or to the trees that could be observed from the balcony, and some birds could be seen almost non stop. The shower stopped producing hot water at some point - when informed the staff, the local repair team arrived, pronounced it fully functional and departed. So I guess it remains fully functional apart from no hot water situation - I just did not feel like making a further effort in this regard, would stay in the lodge even with no hot water at all. Great price, very friendly to single travelers.…
Fantastic experience, the food was delicious, beautiful and simple cabins, lot's of activities, the workers very friendly and accommodating, learned a lot from the guides, saw many monkeys from the boat, the lodge and in hikes. We found gold, and the puppy (Puca) meaning red in the Kichwa language was very friendly and cute. Highly recommend Liana Lodge, Thank you very much to the Liana Lodge team!👍
Been here quite many times now and we are always very satisfied with our stay here. The cabins are really nice and cosy, the guides are very good and there are activities for all ages. It´s the best place to relax for some days in the djungel, it´s calm and silent, the only sounds you can in the night are the sounds of the rainforest. Best of all; the amazing food! Even though we needed special food due to allergies the food was always delicious and varying.
Forty five minutes out of Tena, then a 10 minute boat ride out of Puerto Barantilla. Guest community area was lovely to look at, but no comfortable seating. Meals were good, tons of food if you are a hearty eater. Cabins were rustic but had everything one needed. Our issues had to do with the overall vibe of the place. Not really friendly or welcoming anytime during our stay. We are English speakers and none of the included activities had an English speaking guide. One member in our group spoke a tiny bit of Spanish and spent his time translating. Many of the activities were a bit repetitive. The area is not very remote and it takes a long time to get there from Quito. Not sure I can recommend heartily.
We stayed three nights at Liana Lodge at joined several of their tours. We always got the same guide assigned and Christian did a great job sharing his homeland with us. We visited the jungle, the local community and could try out several activities. Beside the tours we were embedded in the caring and helpful environment of the lodge with delicious food, supportive staff and a beautiful setting on the riverside.
