Went here in June 2015. Not sure if anyone spoke English when I was there. I just pointed to the ticket package that I wanted and then paid for it. Great location Great ruins.

I found both the gentlemen to be more than helpful here at the municipal offices in the center of Ollanta. Yes, I had to use my Spanish, but that was expected, as was the lack of colour brochures...though I must say the photocopied map was excellent and the highlighted walks gave some good and quieter alternatives to the citadel itself....

Just off the main plaza. You can get maps, directions, suggestions. They'll outline some short, self directed walks into the surrounding countryside. Very nice, good English.

If you after a map this is the place for you, otherwise do you homework before you get here. Unhelpful staff as far as we were concerned which is a shame because at all other places we have visited they were so helpful.

Went to get a map and they were out. Asked when they would have more. They said they didn't know. They are not helpful and act rather put out when you ask a question. Information Center, not hardly.

We received good information from the people in this office, they organised a very reliable and friendly taxi driver to drive us to Moray & Salinas. His name was Jesus Gerrado Calcino Yana. Jesus acted as a tour guide and provided us with plenty of relevant information on various sites, etc

Do not expect a lot of information. This is just a guy sitting at a desk handing out a local map. Do your own research before you arrive.

Didn't expect much, and therefore wasn't disappointed :) The only useful thing they provide is a good map of the area, and that only is worth a visit (since you're already around...)
