Our guide Flávio was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna we saw. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent, plenty of variety catering to all tastes, and the barman, Odiley, made the best caipirinhas in Brasil, and we've drunk quite a few over the years! Beverages and the laundry costs... More

Very friendly staff, Ana met us at reception and was very helpful,the guides were also knowledgable and competent. I was with Zaina most of the time and she was very good at finding the things we particularly wanted to see. We wanted to see some giant otters, and on the final day on the final boat ride, she found one... More

What a result, ignore any comments about basic accommodation - you don't make this trip for 6* luxury. The lodges are fine, clean and tidy and although the bathrooms are basic they are more than adequate for this type of trip. Our lodge had a 4 poster set up and decent sized single bed for my teenage son. The hammock... More

To start with the negative points the accommodation in this Pousada is rather basic and tired looking in comparison with other high-cost lodges we have stayed at in the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon. Also given the very high cost of staying there were a number of minor irritating features such as the additional cost to use the in-room safe (really... More

I generally enjoyed my stay here. The restaurant is very good and offers a great variety of dishes at every meal. I do wish that one could purchase a glass of wine. Currently the only option is a full bottle. My room was comfortable and cool although I had to move from one to.another on my second day. The air... More

We stayed for 4 days in October. Rooms are lovely.. food great..plenty for vegetarians. Lots of birds and wildlife. Lake trips particularly productive and enjoyable. Flavio was a great guide with GSOH . We found the area a little too hot for us..37 degrees.on a couple of days. NBot sure if this the norm.

Visited in a group of 14 for 4 nights. We went on boat, horse riding, jeep and walking trips. The lodge has amazing wildlife in its grounds - the tree outside our room had a toucan, parrots and nesting cacique! Our amazing guides, Natalie and Helda found us everything except jaguars! We saw jaguarundi, tapir, anteater, caiman, giant otter (Helda... More

Pousada do Rio Mutum is a well run comfortable EcoLodge not a luxury lodge and all the better for being so! The 5 star rating derives from the consistency of good quality in all respects: site, boats, horses, rooms, food, guides and service at all levels. There is the expected mass of birds to see, but also good chances of... More

Stayed for 4 nights/ 5 days. Has a wonderful time here in the northern Pantanal. The place lived up to all the good reviews. Our guide (Flavio) was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Saw over 120 bird species, both anteater and giant anteater, both otter and giant otters, foxes, lots of caimens and capybaras in 3 days. The trips... More

Really enjoyed our time here in the Pantenal. Fantastic guide (Nattalie) who even came and found us when something to see roamed onto the site (tapir, porcupine sleeping in a tree, and an anaconda distrurbed from the lake when it was being cleaned out!) Good buffet food, and clean basically equipped cabins with comfortable beds. Well run and maintained
