We stayed here for 2 nights not long after the August earthquake. The rooms were great - extremely clean and comfortable, and the location was very peaceful - with a scenic view across the valley from our room.
The most memorable aspect for us though was a staff member - Freddy - who was utterly charming and friendly. He went out of his way to help, not only guests but other travellers we encountered on our guided walk to Uyo Uyo who were having a "lost in translation moment" with the staff member at the ruins. We employed local guides quite a number of times during our holiday in Peru, but Freddy was the standout.
