We were pleasantly surprised by what we found and experienced at Reserva Amazonica. The transfer from the airport to the lodge via boat was seamless. The introduction of excursions was a bit overwhelming because there is just so much to do and it is all inclusive (except for one or two special treks). We were worried about the lack of electricity but the hours of availability make it workable. I found there was no need for a hairdryer or curling iron anyway since you sweat so much that within minutes your hair looks bad again. It was sort of nice to not have to worry about stuff like that.
We had a room on the river (definitely worth the upgrade) and loved being able to sit in our cabin and look out at it. The hammocks were not comfortable so we never used them but the sling wooden chairs nice. The kerosene lamps at night make for a lovely, romantic setting. We were surprised to find the room was relatively secure from outside critters so we could sit in our room just wearing the citronella splash they provide to keep mosquitos at bay. When you leave the compound, you definitely need to use heavy DEET. Oh and here is my tip to anyone planning to go to the jungle - buy an insect repellant shirt!!! I wore mine every time we went on a jungle excursion and never had one bite. My husband received over 30 bites on his shoulder blades from one excursion alone. I am not sure if the shirt had anything to do with it, but I am inclined to think it did.
Food was very good with plenty of options at lunch and dinner.
