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... More

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... More

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 More

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.

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!

“Ask for a lodge without neigbours”
 of 5 bubbles Toemaarjongens, 13 May 2016 | Read review
“The rooms are in lodges around the grounds, some are up hills and others near the water. This would be the only difference to my knowledge”
 of 5 bubbles sandjtravels, 26 Aug 2015 | Read review
“The geography is you arrive on the river, then walk up a set of steps to reach the public area. From there all rooms are uphill, some quite a ways uphill. If you are lugging a lot of bags or are infirm it will be a challenge if you take a cabana very far from the entrance. Even the close ones are a climb.”
 of 5 bubbles GoOSUCowboys, 26 Apr 2014 | Read review
“I loved cabin 5 - the furthest to lug your luggage, but the a great 'lost in the woods' feel! Bring a flashlight or headlamp, consider a mosquito net and good bug spray.”

“First, ask to be in a cabin in which the other room is unoccupies. Otherwise, try to be as close to the main lodge as possible. This will be helpful in the rain and in the dark.”
