Sacred Valley of the Incas

We left Cusco and crossed the mountains into the Urubamba Valley (aka The Sacred Valley of The Incas). This is where many of Cusco's royalty lived as it is an incredibly lush and beautiful region. None of the photos are going to begin to do it justice, but you'll at least get a bit of a view. We drove high up a mountain above the town of Pisac, …

Relaxing day

Friday 15th Nov
A rest day with no activities planned. Spending the morning relaxing by the pool. The Sol Y Luna is a beautiful hotel. The gardens are beautiful and the whole place is spotless. We even had hot water bottles in our bed last night!! Had a great breakfast after probably the best nights sleep so far. We have descended to 2700m so …

Day of Rest

A travel blog entry by davidandfiona

Dave - We all decided to have a lazy day sitting around the pool. We had breakfast at 8 and very good it was too. It has been very quite here all day, we have only seen one other couple until about 30 minutes ago when several more arrived. We had lunch at the adjoining ranch and were "treated" to a horse show, less said the better. Nothing else to …

Peruvian Countryside and Incan Villages

We left Aguas Calientes near Machu Picchu, as always (it seems), in the rain. (Whose bright idea was it again to travel fall-winter-spring and spend both summers at home?!) The Hotel Sumaq personnel loaded our luggage into a cart and we all headed out for a 10-minute walk to up the hill to the train station. Fritz helped the guy push the cart up …

Rafting on the Urubamba River

A travel blog entry by premiertravel

Today was simply inca credible! We did white water rafting and went to an ancient Incan town and ruin.

We did start our day with a very pleasant waiter who seemed to have short term memory issues. He must have asked the only 5 people at breakfast a dozen times each "did you have the scrambled eggs?" after which you would reply " no, I had …

    Really great hotel. Rooms are separate houses in beautiful well maintained gardens. The spa is brilliant. One of the best massages I've ever had. Staff are very helpful.
    Food is good
    Well worth a visit

    Good but some shortcomings

    Reviewed Nov 15, 2013
    by (3 reviews) , United Kingdom Flag of United Kingdom

    This is a very nice hotel with individual lodge rooms set in wonderful gardens. It has a fine restaurant if slightly more expensive than other fine restaurants in Peru. The staff are very attentive and provide very good service. There are however a few small shortcomings which should be addressed. Unlike the majority of hotels they only provide a free bottle of water on the first day, the cost of a bottle is about 5 times that in the shops. The internet service is very patchy and slow, all the other hotels we have stayed in have solved this issue. The hot water delivery is sporadic at times, in the shower you can suddenly be subjected to cold water then very hot water.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sol & Luna Lodge & Spa Urubamba

    Fantastic stay

    from

    We just came back from Sol & Luna and had a fantastic stay at this beautiful hotel! A special thanks to the staff Hugo, Carlos, Oscar, they are wonderful people and helped make our stay confortable and enjoyable.

    A special thank you also to Moises & Eduardo who are fantastic guides and to Cynthia who is a fantastic masseuse. We were reluctant to leave the Sacred Valley and Sol & Luna.

    BIG Rip-Off!!!!!

    from

    We have just returned from our trip to Peru and I must agree with other reviewers---wish I'd heeded my intuition about this place and changed to a different hotel....On the surface, Sol y Luna is lovely in it's rooms and stunning garden surroundings. Unfortunately, the owners are in absentia and the management is indifferent to guests concerns and complaints. It's apparent that they've heard our type of complaints before. The non-caring attitude turned us off and we shared our feelings with other guests who agreed that pricing for everything beyond the room rate was exhorbitant! Since the hotel is several miles outside of town, they must consider their guests easy targets for overcharging on food in the restaurant. We were too tired to go into town and had 2 small chicken soups, a salad and a bottled water for about $30!!!! As mentioned in other reviews on this site, the "health club" charge is $25 PER HOUR!!! Even at the 5 star luxury resorts in the states you might pay $25 to use a world class club for the entire day. Spa services were also at high rates beyond the basic massage rate of $55 per hour---though several friends who had stayed gave mixed reviews of the therapist. We didn't even bother to find out prices for the outdoor activities. Buyers beware at Sol y Luna! On a walk to town we discovered the newly renovated Hotel Libertador and they had a spectacular location and quite reasonable rates. My husband is a travel agent and we would surely send travelers here rather than Sol y Luna. Don't waste your money....

    Wildest dreams

    from

    One of the "RARE" places we´ve everbeen that the ambience + the scenery exceeded our wildest dreams. Petit was a fantastic hostess and took care of our every whim.

    Bravo to the Chef for the most wonderful food.

    Ripped off in every way!

    from

    I stayed here for 5 days, thinking it would be a luxurious trip highlight. Instead it was an unpleasant, infuriating rip off! The staff, management and owners were sour, surly and unhelpful.

    Everything was overpriced- food, restaurants and activities were TRIPLE the prices in town. We asked for 2 sandwiches and 2 Sprites for our kids when we arrived. They charged us $US27! And my kids both got food poisoning! When one of the kids was well enough, we went to their restaurant and they charged us $US16 for boiled spaghetti with butter!

    After charging exorbetent prices in US dollars they then converted the bill to Peruvian Soles at an unheard of exchange rate.

    It was our only bad experience in all of Peru. It soured our holiday.

    Beautiful hotel in Sacred Valey

    from

    The hotel is on beautiful grounds. Gorgeous fragrant gardens surround the bungalows. Wonderful bathroom, although shower was a bit tempermental, but hot nonetheless. Food was excellent--we ate lunch and dinner there. We booked trips to Pisac, Ollantaytambo, and Salinas de Maras through the hotel. The trips were very expensive, but they were privately guided for me and my husband--in the end we decided they were worth it. Our guide, Gabriela, for the trip to Pisac and Maras was great. Since it was just me and my husband, our guide, and the driver we could do things at our own pace. Also, the transport to and from Cusco was quite pricey. I would stay there again.

    Magical Sol y Luna

    from

    Welcome to your own private fairytale!

    A nice place to stay with a family but not perfect

    from

    the rooms were great for a family but the extras such as trips can add up. The guides were great but the price was a bit high. i was also taken back by the $25 charge to use the gym equipment (which was the best we found in Peru). The resturant was good not great, and we did have a problem with a caterpiller in the salad (but this is an outdoor type environment so not a total shock and management was superb when the problem was brought to there attention. Overall a worthwhile experience

    Do not stay here!

    from

    We stayed three nights at the Sol y Luna during our honeymoon, this turned out to be the worst part of our trip in South America. Upon arrival we ended up booking through the hotel a rafting and horseback riding trip, we had little choice as the hotel provides no information at all on the Valley... they simply want you to book everything through their concierge or use the facilities at the hotel (there are numerous complaints about this on the Guest Book in the hall).

    A complete surprise!

    from

    If you are a garden lover this is the place for you. Brand new bungalows/roundels, or whatever you want to call the accommodation because it was amazing, set in herbacious borders with immaculate lawns in the middle of cloud covered mountains. It was absolutely breaktaking in the morning.

    Everything was fresh and clean. The food was terrific and the staff were first class. This really was a find for me.

    Most excellent accomadation!

    from

    Sol Y luna was our very favorite accomadation in the country of Peru!
