Guillermo, the owner, knows just how much customer service matters. He can't do enough to help make your stay perfect. He even offer to get the chef to make me something else even if it wasn't on the menu. The rooms are spotless. Huge comfy beds. High wooden-beamed ceilings. Plenty of hot water. Large modern bathrooms. Lovely balconies with great views. Peaceful location. Nice garden with hammocks to relax in. Negro the dog was a joy to play with. The food wasn't bad... the house red was great and there was ample tea available most times of the day/evening.
Killawasi was probably our favourite place we stayed in Peru and Bolivia. Yanque is a cute little town but it's the surrounding canyon with its hot springs, trails and ruins which makes a stay there so enjoyable. We highly recommend a three night stay there.
Guillermo arranged our transport from Arequipa to Killawasi with tourist stops, a trip to the Condor Cross, horseriding, a guided walk to the hot springs and ruins, and our onward travel on a very comfortable tourist bus to Puno. We were on a budget; it was most affordable.
