Quito, Ecuador350 contributions69 helpful votes
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.

Did not stay at liana lodge but at the nearby runa huasi which is less a lodge than some neat cabanas and communal area/hut where the meals are provided. Run by a friendly local family it provides the same activities as liana lodge at half the price. Plus more authentic athmosphere with tarantulas in the dining hall and giant grasshoppers on the river facing balcony. For reservations call jorge 0969277710 or 063062312. excellent value for money, highly recommended!

Liana Lodge offers a fantastic holiday experience Arriving by canoe to the sound of birds calling gives a flying start Good food Comfortable beds in private cabins with a terrace, hammock and bathroom with warm showers - no electricity in rooms but WiFi and electric light in the large reception area Helpful small touches like dry matches to light candles and a stock of wellies for tramping around the reserve Staff are very capable and welcoming The profits go to help run the sanctuary for indigenous animals which are offered shelter ( after poachers or as discarded pets etc) The animals are kept in good conditions and if they can be rehabilitated they are released in the reserve Worth visiting Lying on the hammock listening to the warm bubbling cries of oropendola and other birds overhead is a treat And listening to guides such as Juan recounting what leaves / plants can be used for - and identifying birds and frogs and insects is both humbling and awesome to a western educated mind Highly recommended

My wife and I stayed at Liana Lodge this summer and we still think about our experience every day! I can honestly say it's the most unique place, I've ever stayed. The staff are very relaxed and welcoming but everything is extremely efficient and professional. The lodge is excellent value. The cabins are clean, private and provided with candles for the evenings. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammock and listening to the jungle noises all around. On our first day, a troup of monkeys swung past our cabin. The trips are easy to organise when you arrive and we had our own guide over the 2 days who was a local Kichwa. We hiked through the jungle and felt privileged to learn how they use everything around them. We were genuinely sad and touched when we left on the canoe. I can think of no other place where my wife and I have felt that way. Amazing!

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is great, and the tours offered were very well organized. If you are looking for a nice jungle experience, definitely book Liana lodge!

Liana Lodge is a beautifully build lodge nestled next to the river down stream about 75 minutes from Tena in the Ecuadorian rain forest. Leo the man in charge was very friendly and took good care of us. Our guide was Sooyou, he was great and worked very hard. All the other staff was friendly and made our stay comfortable.. The atmosphere was unmatched. The food was average and a bit on the salty side but eatable. Please be aware if you order a meal not included in your 2 or 3 day stay they will get you. We had lunch when we arrived a bit early to check in and they charged us $28 for two of us. I felt ripped off! I think I could have ordered lunch from Tena, had it delivered, (75 minutes) tipped the delivery man and got change back. I think $28 for 2 average lunches was a bit much. It did not spoil or experience but I would not go back. Bernie from California
