We stayed only one night, but we promise no more. The room was clean, but did not have enough towels, nor shampoo, the soap was so tiny. The TV never worked. We could not communicate with another room by phone. Only a chair and a fair table in the room. Poor breakfast, only bread, eggs, coffee and juice. The pool... More

We stayed in a 5 bed room. It was very confortable altought there was only one restroom. This hotel keeps and oldfashioned style since it was an old pisco destilery. It has a nice pool, and a little park for children. The breakfast is good but it could be better. At saturday nights it's posible you hear music.(The hotel organizes... More

This ragamuffin of a hotel is right next to a roaring street that stays busy all night. We asked for quiet rooms so got one in the interior but you not only could hear that roar but there was a loud disco, heavy on the base line, until 5 am. The food was also sub-par, and I am being kind!... More

A nice place to relax and explore Ica and the surroundings. Rooms are big, clean and with hot shower. Breakfast is included and nice. Service of the staff is helpfull and friendly. Swimmingpool is nice. The hacienda is besides a noisy and busy road, wich makes the place a bit dusty and noisy when relaxing at the pool. But in... More

They were a bit slow on the original confirmation, but no problems after that. They have many lounging areas, a pool, and restaurant. The welcome drink and breakfast were nice touches. We were there in the off season so no one talked to us without us asking about pisco. They are accommodating about when you check in and out (although... More

We stayed with our 11 year old son for a night in October 2013. and this was without doubt one of the most charming and elegant hotels we stayed in during our time in Peru. The hotel is built around an old hacienda and Pisco distillery. All carved wood and trailing flowers. Our room was a spacious triple, with a... More

The property is beautiful and well maintained. There is also a small area on the back of the property with birds, deer and a few alpaca. The rooms seem to be in the different stages of renovations. The first room we saw was a little dark and seemed to be a little older. They were working on the plumbing and... More

El Carmelo is a good stand bye if you have no other decent place to stay in Ica. I have stayed there many times and it is always as I expect it. The rooms are "generally" clean, the bed linens old, the staff not entirely happy in their work and the owner never smiling or greeting guests. It has gone... More

Stayed here for two nights with my sister. Lovely, safe accommodation in what is otherwise not that nice a city. The hotel was very quiet when we stayed - hardly any other guests. About 5 minutes in a motocar into the Plaza Mayor and 10 minutes in a taxi to the sand dunes at Huacachina. There are a number of... More
