The setting is spectacular. We loved the wildlife and got to see and hear monkeys, birds. Also saw some incredible insects. We were prepared as we'd read the details beforehand. The lunch offered to us in the boat ride was very good. The trek to the lodge was difficult as there had been heavy rains. It was so hot and...

We'd read about the trek to reach this lodge on TripAdvisor so we were reasonably prepared. However the heavy rain immediately before we set off had left the track inches deep in slippery muddy water, so in the heat and humidity it was really quite a challenging hike. Once we arrived, the lake is indeed beautiful, and the lodge although...

Dear guest Thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad you were able to see so many animals.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sandoval Lake Lodge: Located deep in Peru's Tambopata National Reserve, our Sandoval Lake lodge overlooks sparkling, palm-rimmed Sandoval Lake, the most beautiful and wildlife-rich of all lakes in Tambopata-Madidi. This privileged location gives you exclusive access to the lake in the early morning and late afternoon, the choice hours for wildlife viewing and photography. No other lodge in Tambopata-Madidi is on the banks of a protected oxbow lake. Our short Sandoval Lake Lodge program includes two nights of fully-screened accommodation in 25 double-occupancy rooms complete with en suite facilities with hot-water showers, electricity (*), fans, meals, airport transfers in Puerto Maldonado, naturalist guides, lake excursions by day in search of Giant Otters, monkeys, and macaws, forest excursions, night excursions in search of caimans, and evening slide shows. Our lodge specializes in small groups and individualized attention in our overriding quest to conserve the lake and surrounding rainforest. Sandoval Lake Lodge is built out of ecologically-correct driftwood mahogany and is owned jointly by a nonprofit conservation group and five families of indigenous Brazil nut collectors. (*) Three times per day: from 5:00 to 6:00 am, from noon to 4:00 pm and from 17:30 to 22:30 pm. ... more   less
