My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this luxury hotel.Beautiful hotel, especially the gardens are impressive.Our room was very nice and had everything you expect for a 5 star hotel. Reception and concierge very helpful. Smiling and friendly. Big choice for Breakfast and everything well presented and fresh. But if the kitchen doesn't know what "Eggs Benedict" is don't put it on the menu for breakfast.They served it as a fried egg on toast with cold ham and some sort of sauce on the side.The first night we had dinner in the restaurant. My choice was "suckling pig" and my husband a steak. The "suckling pig" was a small bone with a layer of fat! It looked awful and it didn't taste good. With a small piece of fennel and some apple on the side a disappointment. My husband's steak was certainly not the best he had during our trip in Peru.The cheapest bottle of wine for 50 dollars without tax. So-after this experience- no more dinners in the hotel.
A taxi from the Hotel Monasterio at the airport to the hotel costs 12 USD. which is very reasonable. You don't have to book ahead!
