Our room at the Lord Manaus was adequate for the price. We only had a top and fitted sheet...no spread or blanket, even though we requested them. The decor was dated. The bathroom and shower were the nicest parts of the room.
The complimentary breakfast in the dining room was excellent and made our stay much more pleasant. This is an ok hotel for the price especially if you travel like we do and spend very little time in the room. The location is in the middle of the commercial district which was very active during the day and very isolated and a little scary at night. We walked to other old town destinations during the day but took cabs back to the hotel at night. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful...except that we never got the requested bedspread/blanket.

Quite a basic lodge with rather a casuial attitude to customer care. The rooms are clean and fairly spartan with somewhat old sanitaryware. The view out onto the water from our room was beautiful and serene, until the motors of the lodge's boats started up early in the morning. Our guide was personable. Initially, he tended to show his true depth of knowledge when he was asked questions. As he got to know us, he responded to our specific interests. We were only there for one night, and the guide made sure that we did as much as we could during that time, so we were busy for the whole time, which suited us very well. He also took our individual needs into account, and when he discovered that we were interested in birds he cut short our fishing trip, with our agreement, and took us to a roosting site where thousands of birds were returning home at dusk. This really was a fascinating and beautiful experience.
Food was, again, quite basic with a buffet for meals. Unfortunately the dishes had no information on them about their contents and so it was difficult for a vegetarian to make safe choices without the help of a guide. This would be an easy thing to correct.
We did not know who to contact with problems and when, at night, we discovered that we had only one sheet on the bed, it was left to the cleaning staff to interpret our sign language (we don't speak the language) so it took a long time to resolve what should have been a simple problem.
