      Hotel is clean and tidy, all in good working order with WiFi and computers to use included. Breakfast is good and reception pleasant and helpful. Would recommend as a good place to stay for the first couple of nights.

      We were booked into this hotel with our small tour and not one of us were happy with it. Rooms are not sound proof, no tissues, no drinking water, no clock, no where to put your luggage, and as a lot of rooms are inward looking over courtyard where dining room opens from, as groups leave at all times of the night, you are constantly woken.Staff are not friendly and all round this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.

      ... 9:30 am. It was a beautiful morning and we could not wait to experience a day in life of working in a farm. We all put on light clothing and bug spray. Then we got ready, and met down by the hotel pool around 10 am for a nice breakfast before we set out on our activity. After we ate, we all grabbed our stuff and went to the front of the hotel where our cab was picking us up at 11 am. It was hard for us to explain to our cab driver where we needed to go because ...

      ... shoulda make it to blighty. Fingers crossed anyway. A couple of us girls then headed out to explore Miraflores, grab a Starbucks, a little piece of home, and walked up to the local park and shopping area. During lunch I've discovered another favourite cocktail, passion fruit or Maracuya Sour! Later that day we met up with the rest of the group, including some newbies and headed in to downtown ...

      (but not terribly expensive) restaurants specializing in both traditional and "new" Peruvian cuisine. There are additionally of course tours that focus just on food or include demonstrations of, or lessons in Peruvian cooking. Lima we learn also is popular weekend destination these days for Chileans looking to escape boring old Santiago for the delights of Peruvian cuisine. ...

      ... We asked for a room with a court yard view. What we got was a room that was previously the outside toilet and was very damp and cold inside. Also, where the window was situated, we could hear everyone who was in the kitchen and in the court yard. The noise and the jet lag meant we didn't get much sleep whilst we were there. We booked the hostel based on its reviews it received. To this day we are still not sure how it go such high reviews! The area ...

      ... get any awards for researching Peru properly, all I knew is that I wanted to go there. I ended up spending the majority of the day catching up on some sleep. In truth I was a little frightened of venturing into the city where I couldn't communicate, didn't know where I was going and didn't know anyone. I remember thinking to myself what have I done? What have I got myself into? I eventually got to a stage where I prep talked myself into being brave and ...
