Accommodation

 
Casa Andina Private Collection Miraflores
A large characterless hotel undergoing some major renovation works, although the drilling did stop when we asked. Only there for one night. Staff were friendly.
 
Sol y Luna Hotel
Cottages beautiful and fabulous food but very expensive (London prices) and yet another spa. Apparently no horses available for riding, river now too polluted for river rafting ,quad bikes £200 to hire and hiking all a bit dusty and tame after the trek. So a relaxing couple of days but felt very much at a loose end.
 
Inkaterra Machu Picchu
Not as nice accommodation as the other Inkaterra hotels (did we just get the grotty rooms?) and the hotel is very much a staging post for tourists in transit to Machu Picchu. Public areas were nice, food good and their bear rehabilitation project worth supporting.
 
Colca Lodge
A strange mix of very upmarket spa with some clean but basic safari style cottages. Dining room chilly and a bit souless but food ok and cosy bar area.
 
Reserva Amazonica
Charming accommodation all fully netted. Fantastic food. Would have liked a bit more flexibility on activities as with everyone going at once (maybe 20-30 people), albeit in small groups, it wasn't likely we were going to see many animals. Great first introduction to the rainforest, sort of 'jungle lite'.
 
Mountain Lodges of Peru
All totally excellent with lovely simple rooms and great views from the lodges. The staff were so welcoming after a long days hike, food excellent and even the hiking boots were cleaned while we slept.
 
La Casona
Lovely, characterful hotel in a great location
 
Casa Andina Private Collection Arequipa
A large characterless hotel undergoing some major renovation works, although the drilling did stop when we asked. Only there for one night. Staff were friendly.
