Stayed here with friends for a few nights while visiting Cusco and surrounding areas. We had 3 people in one room and the space was still comfortable. The closet was ample and was one of nicest hotel closets ever! It had mirrors and great storage options, even for 3 women traveling together. The decor was modern, yet rustic and all in top notch shape. We had a small table and chairs and couch in addition to the beds, TV, etc. The bathroom was ample as well, with separate areas for toilet, sink and shower/tub.
The staff were all super friendly and helpful. I was sick one night and they suggested things to make me feel better such as tea and more bland food. Anything you needed, they were willing to help you with. They all spoke english very well too. One morning at breakfast, we each had just a small amount of food before heading out and they charged us for one continental breakfast instead of each item separately, which was nice and more economical.
Food: Breakfast was excellent. We had the buffet and ordered off the menu. The buffet had a great selection. I liked the local cheeses especially. We had food and drinks in the bar one night which was also top notch. In addition, we ordered room service and it was of high quality as well.
Spa: Great service. The heated chairs to relax in may have made my trip. I think i fell asleep for quite some time and they didn't care. They even brought me a blanket to curl up with. I had the inca trail massage which was a combo of soaking in a jetted tub and a massage. The pool area looked awesome, though i didn't use it. They don't have a ton of chairs to lounge on though, so a few people out there and its crowded.
Grounds: very nice. I walked along the paths which went along the river. Pretty plants and a nice waterfall in the back of the hotel.
Area: this is the swankiest thing in town for sure. The city is cute, worth walking around and exploring for a bit, though not much to see. Does have restaurants, street food and convenience stores that are cheaper to pick up water and snacks. Walkable from the hotel. Beware at night though for wild dogs around that can be scary. Felt safe overall though, so no issues there. You must, must go to Tres Keros restaurant down the street. A short walk from the hotel. Probably one of the best meals we had in Peru. There is a salad with hearts of palm, avocado and some other ingredients. Awesome! Still thinking about it.
Excursions/Trips: onsite staff very helpful. Booked our trip to machu picchu, gave advice on getting to Cusco and around town.
Transportation: this place is way off the beaten path. We had the hotel transport from the airport in Cusco which was very nice. A mercedes van i believe. Though, not cheap. Taking a cab is cheaper, just have them arrange it in advance for travel to Cusco.
Overall, would highly recommend this lavish and relaxing hotel.
