The Tayka group have the better hotel facilities in this region but, do not be fooled, they are all quite basic. This hotel is well out of the way of resources such as food and complex building materials, so much of the food is local and therefore very limited. In all fairness, our food was tasty and the wine cheap!... More

As others have said, it's in the middle of nowhere, so it's Hobson's Choice. It felt as though the duty manager knew that, so we didn't get the good service others mentioned. We didn't get any heat, light or water in our room for most of the stay either! We were quite upset when the manager casually flicked some switches... More

Make no errors, this hotel is as basic as it gets. It is miles from anywhere so running such an establishment in such a harsh environment is an achievement in itself. The staff are extremely willing and helpful. The rooms very rudimentary and freezing. Need new curtains as when we stayed, made from just a piece of hessian, one with... More

Yes - this is not a Marriott in Hawaii. The hotel is very beautiful, the people are friendly, service is good. We were staying here all alone so I don't know if there are a lot of other hotel options around for non backpackers. But I would stay here again and in winter I would even as backpacker consider staying... More

If you read the reviews, I tend to agree with all of them, which are written from individuals points of view. It really does boil down to you and what you like The position and architecture are both good, and the idea of making everything of stone is interesting. There is little in the way of heating, so in the... More

Having read previous reviews it appears we were following the same track. After 4 hours electricity at our previous hotel, 24 hours was a luxury. However when we arrived we found that the hotel was in the state of a significant building renovation for which we received a full apology. We arrived in the afternoon and were advised it would...

It was fine to stay in this hotel. We had a big room with nice views at the village and the ruins of the old town. There is a difference in the quality of the rooms. But we were lucky to receive a nice room in every Tayka hotel we stayed, thanks to our guide Herlàn from Hidalgo Tours.Food was... More

After staying in the Tayka del Desierto the night before, we expected a similar venue. It is similar in terms of the architecture, but not with regards to service, friendliness and cleanliness. As somebody said below: The hotel is made of natural stone, even the bathroom. It's not easy to keep clean and the shower was so unappealing that I... More

Come on some of you reviewers - get real! This hotel may be near a village but think how far that village is from virtually everywhere. And consider the logistical difficulties of catering there and of using local staff (which they do) whose norms may be very different from those in, say, Europe. We liked it here: the accommodation was... More
