Visiting MachuPichu has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life, having the luxury to stay overnight at this hotel made it even better. If you stay here you get to be the first to enter the archeological site because the tourist have to wait for the buses to take them up, and you get to stay until they...

We absolutely enjoyed the location of the hotel. We were able to visit Machu Picchu in the morning, have lunch at the hotel and then return very easily to the ruins after lunch. The entrance is literally adjoining the hotel. The staff, food and free wifi are amazing. There is even a walking path through the orchid garden on the...

For a couple years I asked for gifts to me to be money toward a night at the Belmond Sanctuary Hotel. I figured this was probably a once in a lifetime trip and I was bound and determined to have a night in this special place. While the room itself wasn't the most spectacular, it was the whole experience that...

This hotel has nice gardens and adequate rooms. On retrospective, I do not think it is worth staying here just to avoid an extra bus trip. There is nothing particularly special about the hotel except its location.
