We have recently been guests of Cuesta Serena for several days, using it as a base for our acclimatization hikes. The place is just spectacular! Located a few mins away from the airport and some 30 mins away from the city center, it is truly tranquil: there are virtually no people around, the views on the mountains and the hills... More

If this is your first visit to Peru OR you have not been outside of Lima's Miraflores yet I have to warn you: most of the locals have vague to no idea what "quality" is supposed to be and how that evasive "luxury" thing must have its roots in no-nonsense comfort. Not so in Cuesta Serena. This little island of... More

The Cuesta Serena was the perfect place to come and relax after all of our busy sightseeing in Cusco. It was so lovely and serene with perfect views that take your breath away. A little bit of paradise. The food was delicious and the grounds were gorgeous with lots of different spots to relax and just take in the view.... More

My wife and I made a fairly quick trip to the Cordillera Blanca and decided to rest our heads here. The setting is something out of a fairytale. The view of Huascarán and it's sister peaks was unbelievable. Mariana and her staff know how to treat their guests. The food was particularly amazing. I do not think you could find... More

My husband found this little gem and we very much enjoyed our stay here. It felt like a cross between a fabulous hotel and a bed and breakfast. The owner and staff went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed (food, drinks, massages, directions, etc.) The grounds and property are... More

My husband and our 3 kids stayed 3 nights in this magical hotel. We went with our friends and their child and both of our families agree that it was one of the best vacations we have ever had. From the beginning the kids were welcomed with open arms and it was the first time in a long time that... More

This might just be the most perfectly situated hotel in all of South America - your breath will be taken away every time you look out at the stunning Huarascan, the enormous snow peaks all around you, and sunrise and sunsets making the entire sky glow and constantly change, later the full moon lighting up all the hillsides. And you... More

Probably your best choice in Huaraz and in the Callejon de Huaylas. A few minutes north of Huaraz, Cuesta Serena offers an ideal location for exploring the Callejon de Huaylas. All major attractions are within comfortable reach, however, the hotel itself offers you what’s best about the area, the view and crisp air of the Cordillera Blanca. The Callejon de... More

We stayed in Cuesta Serena with a friend who was visiting from England. It was such a beautiful spot to take him to and really show off what Peru has to offer. Mariana was so welcoming and it was in many ways like staying with a good friend, who happens to have one of the most beautiful homes you could... More
