“Unforgettable beauty and serenity”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Breathtaking dreamlike atmosphere and world class service made this an ideal place to stay. We only wished we had planned to stay longer. The floor heating and outside warm tub had a wonderful and yet private view of the beautiful land.

My wife and myself stayed for 5 nights in March 2011 and would rank it as one of the best hotels in the world - in terms of location, relaxation, service and quality. Every night was gourmet food, we were given a cookery lesson by the head chef (admittedly the hotel was not full at the time), also we were shown how to make drinks at the bar.
The room was excellent, extremely large, under floor heating, wifi was not perfect, but that was the only complaint.
The hotel has horses so we trekked with them, we also fed the baby alpaca's.
They collected us in Arequipa over 4 hours away (for a fee) and had refreshments in the car with a packed lunch - they also dropped us off in Puno (6 hrs away) in a the hotel van (also a fee),
The hotel was expensive, but one I will remember for sure.

Each cottage is seemingly secluded in a beautiful garden, surrounded by trees, with snow-capped mountains, in the distance. The serenity is enhanced by a well trained staff, eager to do everything to make you comfortable. Other top rated hotels offer luxuries and beautiful interior design, but Las Casitas takes the experience a step farther, by adding a great generosity of spirit. At Las Casitas, you are treated to the gift of a soothing head massage at their excellent Spa; and to the gift of cooking lessons, offered by their excellent chef, which gives you the opportunity to engage with other guests in this otherwise private setting. The sense of welcome and caring for your experience is more like from that of a good friend. I'd return often enough to make it a friend's place, if it were closer to home.

This really is the only place to stay in the Colca Canyon. We were here for three nights and it was fabulous, absolutely wonderful! We didn't want to leave! The room (number 15) was lovely and was nice and warm with underfloor heating (it gets quite cold at night). Hot water bottles are provided in the evening, which is a nice touch. However, don't light the fire unless you want a smoke filled room! As for the bathroom, it's one of the best we've ever had anywhere, with not one, but three, showers as well as a bathtub! Robes and slippers are also provided.

The food was lovely and the staff excellent and very eager to please. Breakfast was served personally the first two mornings as there weren't many guests and it was fairly quiet. The third morning there were more guests, so it was a buffet affair where you helped yourself. The choice of food was good and varied.

Our first full day was spent condor watching near Condor Cross, where we were lucky enough to see six, and then relaxing in the afternoon. We could have gone horse riding in the afternoon but we couldn't be bothered - it's such a nice place that we wanted to chill out and enjoy the peace and tranquility. The second day was spent at leisure and it was lovely to do absolutely nothing except have breakfast, feed the trout, wander back through the vegetable garden, have a look at the main pool and then have a nap. Then after lunch we spent the afternoon in our own private plunge pool with a bottle of wine just admiring the spectacular view. We also acquired a cat! We don't know where he came from, but he saw us in our pool and decided to come and join us and laid on the side until we got out. The next morning he was waiting by our front door to escort us to breakfast! The nights were clear and the sky was full of stars - we could even see the milky way.

This place may be expensive, but it's worth every penny. Don't just think about it, do it and see for yourself !!

this is a gem of a property....it is secluded, quiet, restful but still has plenaty of activities to keep anyone busy. Our first thing we did was to explore the farm and gardens. Amazing.
We did a full day trip to view the condor birds and then hiked down into colco Canyon and rode mules back up from the bottom of the canyon. We went horseback riding one afternoon. Our favorite thing to do was to feed the baby llamas and alpalcas with bottles. We helped staff fish for our dinner one night. We watched the sunset with a glass of wine. Just a wonderful wonderful place.
