Amazon paradise

Fantastic guide, amazing views and wonderful food. So relaxing, wish we’d stayed for an extra night.

Great Experience!

This is the place to go if you want more individual attention from your Amazon guide. Our guide was excellent and seemed to genuinely care that we had a great experience. If you're a birder, this is a great choice---they make sure you get to see a lot! The food was good, although if you are staying more than 3 days it may get a little repetitive. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were nice. Be prepared to have a few critters in your room, but that's no surprise---you're in the Amazon! :-)

This is a great simple lodge in Amazon. I really liked the food and tours, they serve simple Brazilian food with at least one meal containing a local fish. The desert is also very good. The huts are simple but comfortable and there are units with AC. They are flexible with the tour schedule which gives you flexibility to design your trip to the lodge. Some guides speak bette English than others. The only thing I didn’t like was one segment of the transfer to and out the lodge. The car from Manaus and the boats are great but the car segment ( the longest one) to the second pier is made through an old beat up VW van and it really doesn’t feel safe. If it wasn’t for that our trip would have been perfect.

Great place to stay

Dolphin Lodge is a great choice in the Amazon. The staff are really pleasant and go out of their way to be helpful, guides are excellent, as is the food. The rooms are not posh ( you are in the jungle! ) but are very comfortable with an en suite bathroom. Transportation is well organised. I would recommend Dolphin Lodge for a 3 day stay.

5/5 Excellent

Abundant jungle contact. Great!

Expect rain, got it! Scary, muddy approach road before cool riverboat travel. Surprisingly few mosquitoes and lots of flora/fauna

Pros: Guides spoke English and were knowledgeable

Cons: A chair in the room
