I stayed at the Hotel Paracas, a Luxury Collection Resort, for 4 night with a friend from Peru. The hotel definitely is luxurious, but quite expenses. I had the 4th night free package with breakfast. Here is my honest and unbiased review of the hotel:
Pros: beautifully landscaped, good cleaning service in the morning and at night, friendly staff, well appointed rooms and clean, awesome pool area, grand breakfast buffet with made to order eggs and coffee (get the breakfast package), great ceviche restaurant on the dock, awesome bathroom in rooms, nice terrace area with rooms, and located in walking distance of the grand metropolis of Paracas (LOL).
Cons: expensive cocktails/beer/wine/food, smell from beach area (not all the time, but I think from seaweed), tours are very expensive, hotel taxi service is double what is charged in the area (no better service), made to order eggs were just ok, restaurant service was just good not exceptional for a luxury hotel, and extra charges for wifi in rooms.
Overall this hotel is awesome as noted above, but there is room for improvement as noted above. I say this because it's a 5 star rated hotel. As far as the tour packages, I found a local taxi driver from Pisco who took us on tours at a much lower cost. The tours were not luxurious, but personal. It helps to speak a little Spanish. I would definitely recommend this hotel in the Paracas area, but just remember is beautiful, but expensive.
