“Oasis in the desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Majoro is about 5 minutes from downtown Nazca but a haven of beauty and quiet you will need. Extensive grounds with a pet vicuna, llama and peacocks. Fruit trees, large grassy areas wonderfully landscaped and much outdoor art. Great pool and deck/bar area. Rooms are spread out around the property. Opt for a more expensive room near the pool. It is really not that much more and the serenity is worth it. There are relaxing great rooms decorated with enough local art to rival a small museum. Very comfortable sofas to sit around and read in the evening. We stayed 2 nights but could have stayed longer. Watch for the signs from the main road. The access road to the hotel is a dirt road and you may think "what am I getting into?" But once past the gated wall, you will be pleasantly surprised. This is the kind of place I would go out of my way to stay at when I travel. While the "lines" may have brought you to Nazca, you will find there are other very interesting places to go. Aqueducts, cemetery, pyramid ruins and more.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the swimming pool just seemed the most peaceful.

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad to learn you had a good time at Majoro. I try to do my best to share with the guests Peruvian art and handycraft, and at the same time a relaxing time by the pool and gardens

Stayed here one night on a whirlwind trip around Peru. We were initially impressed with the hotel surroundings, vicunas, llamas, peacock, pool and gardens etc. However found the room to be a bit outdated and the staff were not very helpful. Food/accommodation was OK but not great and we got better service/facilities/food at other hotels we stayed in. Overall we were satisfied for one night but not sure we would want to be there for longer. Good transit hotel but maybe not for a longer stay.

thank you for your comments. At Majoro we try to reproduce the atmosphere of a XIX century Casa Hacienda, including the bedrooms. We do not have a/c, radios or TV's in them, but we do offer wi-fi at a cost through out all the premisses.

A very pleasant stay for a couple of days. Beautiful and extensive grounds and a large pool but what makes it stand out is the large collection of all types of Peruvian historical artifacts and works of art displayed around the hotel and in the rooms. There is a large sitting room where you can easily pass hours relaxing and contemplating. The restaurant in full of tapestries and colonial wooden furniture. Do need to visit museums!

This is a classic experience that shouldn't be missed unless you are a fan of modern cookie cutter hotels!

I had my bike with me and did a lovely ride out to Cahuachi following a road direct from the hotel.

We will go back somtime.

Room Tip: They have lots of rooms so ask to see more than one as they are all different!

Once one has penetrated 'security' the scene which awaits one is that of beautiful gardens to relax in with works of art everywhere. The pleasant, if rather dated, accommodation provides everyone with a unique room. The general areas are crammed with antiques. Helpful staff and adequate food. We loved the company of a Vicuna and an Alpaca as we sat by the pool.

The hotel provides easy access to such local attractions as there are.

I'm glad to learn you enjoyed your stay at Majoro. I do my best to show my guests Peruvian works of art and also, some relax. After all everybody needs it after a long trip. I hope you enjoyed the Planetarium and the Pisco cellar, as well as the weavers workshop.

We were so thankful to not be staying in town. Nazca is in a desert. Very dry & dusty. Hotel Majora is down a dirt road, very near the airport. It is lush & green surrounded by a green lawn & flowering trees & bushes. The rooms are a bit dated, but large & comfortable. The restaurant is adequate. The 1st night there were several large groups so it was very loud. We thought we would take a taxi into town for dinner, but after a day of exploring we had dinner again at the hotel in a private little dining room. It was lovely. Considering the surroundings I wouldn't suggest staying anywhere else. Our only complaint was that we didn't have an extra day to just relax by the pool!

We enjoyed staying here. Gardens are lovely, free wifi at reception, a beautiful pool. We did find the restaurant extremely noisy with international bus groups and live music, but they accommodated my husband's hearing problem by giving us a private dining room with excellent service. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Our room was decorated beautifully and quite spacious.

A few minutes drive from the Nazca airport, this hotel provides a nice stopover before visiting the famous lines.
Located at the end of a long unpaved road, the site gives a pleasant surprise after having crossed the gates.
An hacienda was standing here, and we enjoy a large, nicely gardened surrounding.
A few animal roam free on the premises, especially a cute litte vicuna that was very happy to pose for pictures.
The room is on the rustic side, with old fashioned furnishing.
The site being quite isolated, a taxi is essential if one wishes to visit downtown Nazca.
Breakfast choice was a little limited.
A nice place overall.

Thank you for your comments. Yes, we are 8 kms away from Nazca and if you want to go downtown you must hire a taxi or take the Hotel's shuttle at certain hours of the day. Being an old hacienda, the antique furniture has been placed there on purpose, in order to make the guest feel, how life was in the XIX century.
