It was really nice accomadation. We were with a group and they catered for us wonderfully. I have no idea what the pricing was as I was part of a group of 40, but we were on a fairly tight budget, so I don't think it would have been really expensive. We had local food, and did some treking with their guides. The room we stayed in had 4 beds. If you go there and get a chance, see if you can get a photo with the Macaw. My photos were badly exposed, but its a great experience. A fairly quiet lodge, surrounded by rainforest. Watch out for Tarantulas tho, we found one (thankfully nowhere near our room) Also make sure you cover up and have adequate insect repellant because the mozzies there can carry malaria. There is a bathroom between every two rooms and also a stair way going up to a platform on the roof where you can sit and watch the sunset or whatever- really nice. Don't leave any food you may have brought with you out, as I had a visitor during the night which can only have been very small but yet which consumed a fair portion of the travel food we'd been advised to bring for the other parts of our journey.

Unique Quality: Don't miss the hammock room!!

Directions: The Lodge has transport Available and tours and stuff

The differens in level of the river at the hotel location (one hour down the stream) is 12 meters(!). When I was there (July) the flood was going down (it had gone down 4 meters, but there were still 8 meters to go down). Low water season is July - September.
I liked our hotel - Heliconia Amazon River Lodge, with clean and nice rooms, hammock rooms to rest, and very good food.

Unique Quality: Rustic, good food, nice people.
