“The llama in the back yard is a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

We did not stay here but was brought here for lunch after a long drive in from Arequipa. We were here in June, which is high tourist season, and we were literally by ourselves. The hotel is a delight. A simple gem with features first world inhabitants take for granted-like toilets and running water-that are not readily available to the residents of Corporaque. Corporaque is very quiet. Its simply a little village in the hills that has gone about its business of subsistance farming on ancient Incan terraces for hundreds of years. We came across a woman winnowing her quinoa the old fashioned way (throwing it into the breeze). It was then that I realized that while electricity has reached this part of Peru, and there is some tourism, most of the people in these parts seem to survive in much the way their ancestors did after the colonization by Spain. No one is here to entertain you, there is no time for that. But this is how life was and still is for many. Enjoy this vision of the past, while staying in the comfort of this hotel. Besides, you wont find many hotels with a llama to keep the grass trimmed.

The surroundings are lovely, but I wasn't impressed with this place otherwise... maybe because I had a terrible sleep due to the cranked up heater. I was only able to stop tossing and turning after I cracked open the window to let the cold night air in. The shower wasn't great either -- the water suddenly got really hot, then really cold and so I couldn't finish washing (not pleasant!). Otherwise, the room was clean and the buffet meals were rather good. I enjoyed the alpaca outside (he? spat at my friend, which was pretty funny)... and the alpaca meat they serve at dinner was pretty enjoyable too :)

What a beautiful little hotel with spectacular views of the valley and the surrounding mountains. The spacious rooms with nice inca inspired decorations are on a lower terrace than the main building. The heater in the room is a necessary equipment for the cold nights. The only flaw is that the guests can not turn it off, if you prefer to sleep in a cold room.
The main building offers the dining facilty with big windows to enjoy the scenic landscape. Meals are in buffet style and simply delicious. Do not forget to try the grilled alpaca, which they season to perfection. Above the dining floor there is a comfortable space around the chimney for conversations and board games.
If you have the time, enjoy the little village of of Coporaque and a trail leading uphill to a viewpoint, where you can survey the valley and see the snow capped peaks in Colca Canyon.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a chance to look down into the valley

La Casa de Mama Yacchi is just beautiful and a fabulous place to take a breath in what can be a bit of a whirlwind trip. It doesn't have TV or WiFi and it gets dark early so peace, quiet and rest is obligatory!

The food was great and a real fire helps you relax - particularly if you have just been to the hot springs. Heating comes on overnight so the rooms are cosy (which is more than can be said of many other hotels in this part of the world.). It's not luxury as many judge luxury but then Peru is just not that kind of holiday. But if you want to relax in stunning scenery and eat well then I don't think you'll be disappointed.

We had a spacious room with an excellent view on the valley. Bathroom works properly.
Because evenings/nights may be cold, hotel personel comes by your room every evening to put on a heater that brings the temperature to a comfortable level.
Meals are buffet wise and are a real treat! All buffets consist of several traditional dishes, so you can try without taking a gamble of ordering a whole meal of something unkown.
Waitresess are not very talkative but friendly and helpfull. The manager is very attentive.

Very nice hotel, gorgeous views! We stayed here 1 night and had a lovely stay. The rooms are spacious with heating and nice terrecotta colours. The restaurant/bar area is huge with very good food (buffet) and lovely staff. Outside they put up hammocks with a gorgeous view of the canyon and an alpaca! In the morning you can find the alpaca looking through the front door while waiting for its milk, very funny and they even let me feeding him!

There is not much to do in the immediate surroundings but obviously you are there to watch the condors. But just hanging out in the hammocks with that view is good enough.

This hotel is quaint (meaning basic). About the best you can say about the shower is that it will get you wet. The two lamps in the room offer very dim wattage. But when you open the drapes, the view will take your breath away. It's a panoramic scene of the Colca Valley that you'll never forget. And there's a pet alpaca that would follow you inside if you'd let it. It wasn't crowded when I was there so we got scads of attention from the staff. The food was excellent. I ended up loving the place.
