This is a well run place close to Tena (1 hour drive + 10 min boat) to get a first good impression of the Amazon. While this is probably not comparable with the isolated amazone lodges, we got a great feeling with nature and people. We stayed for 3 nights and 2 days which is sufficient to do most of the activities that are all offered into the package. Food was very good and offered 3 times a day. One day, we took the lunch with us on trip. We did 3 hour walk with visit to Amazonicon (highly recommended!) and tubbing back on the river. We had fishing lessons and made a small raft to come back to the lodge. The other day we did a day trek with lunch at and swimming in a creek. The treks and walks are not easy, muddy (but you get boots) but well done. The local Spanish speaking

A very special place, great service, very special, good guides, Eco-friendly in the middle of the Ecuadorean Amazon area. You do not want wifi or electricity, you're in the middle of the Selva! Only already the sound of the night is more than perfect. Beautiful river, great fireplace, good food, great butterflies....

When interested in the forest, but without an abundance of time, go here. It is a lodge with sufficient comfort (hammock, shower, good bed, candle-lit) including the meals, right next to a river (surprisingly no musquitoes, but unfortunately with sandflies). Combination of pure relaxing and activities: short walks, floating downriver, visiting animal refuge. Meals are good enough (ecuador in itself is not for foodies), well timed. Reception was run by a temporary volunteer, little experienced but of good will. She even removed a tarantula from our bedroom.. courageous. Monkeys around the lodge which is great to see them swing in the trees. They are no threat at all. Advise to stay a minimum of 2 nights, preferably 3 to get the right feel.

Thank you for your feedback. We always try to improve ourselves and so it's nice to hear that you had a good time in our Lodge. We recommend repellent to avoid any sandfly bites - they aren't dangereous because they don't transmit diseases but really nasty. Kind regards, the Liana Lodge team

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. No electricity & quite quaint to use candles for lighting. You need to bring a torch to navigate from the dining area back to your cabin at night Food could be a lot better - pretty boring & no good at dealing with special requests eg allergies /intolerances. Was disappointed by the limited amount of wildlife we saw on our night & day walks

Thank you for your comment. We're sorry had bad experiences, normally it is no problem to deal with allergies and special requests in our Lodge, if you inform the reception or kitchen beforehand. Yet we hope you will come back one day! Kind regards, the Liana Lodge team.

We stayed for three nights at Cabana 3 of the Liana Lodge. The lodge is situated along the river, a 15 minutes canoe ride and 45 minutes drive from Tena bus station. Although there is no electricity in your room, nor in the restaurant area, you can charge your phone/ camera's etc at the reception, which is ofcourse really great. Our guide Zuyu was really great and we did the Ceibo tour (biggest tree of the Amazone), incl. AmaZOOnico (a must do!), in the morning. In the afternoon 'pesca y oro' and we found gold!! (Although it was just a very small piece.) The second day we did a day tour to Rio Rodriguez (swimming in crystal clear water), great (and again with Zuyu). Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) was very good. The dogs Sam and Leila are really sweet. Nice bar. Great

We spent three nights here with our son and we walked in the jungle, went down the river with tubes, watched the monkeys go bye and visited a small indian village on the island, the rooms were big but openly connected with the neighbours (you can hear everything), the meals were good and the service very good (they arranged extra transport to the island very early in the morning for me, for free)

Liana Lodge is a boat ride from the nearest road but the rooms had hot showers and the food was excellent. Lovely location with wildlife around all the time. They lend you wellingtons for treks around the lodge. Take a torch though as you need to get from the main lodge to your room at night.

A nice place with friendly staff. You can choose tours from te menu and you get a private guide. We went on a hike and in the afternoon we searched for gold with Christian. He spoke really good german (not english). And we found gold :) (a little little bit). We liked the whole experience!

Stay at a rustic yet comfortable lodge in the heart of the Amazon for a real jungle experience! The lodge has a restaurant with a good menu & also offers numerous tours, including a tour of the animal rescue center (Amazoonico) that is run through the same organization (Selva Viva). The entire project is very sustainable & supports the local Quechua tribe across the river. A truly wonderful stay!

It was great to spend couple of days in this lodge with the marvelous guide of Soyu, a local guide who made our visit very nice and showed us a lot about the life of his proud tribe and how to minimize our impact on the nature while keeping a good level of life It really worth the prize, so enjoy it if you have the chance
