“very nice place to stay. wouldn't dine there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Just came back from a wonderful weekend. very nice place, recently opened. Good locataion, nice view to the river and the mountains. Rooms are nice, but not very big. New bathrooms. Staff is very friendly. Dinner was terrible. The fish smelled but they offered another dish. We ordered 5 plated, hardly touched them and paid over 230 soles. Even the fries were bad.
garden is beautiful and peacefull. One could definitely relax there. make sure you get a qoute by email to avoid misunderstanding.
For attractions we went directly to agencies rather than reserve through the hotel- cost much less that way.
Used Aventura extremas for rafting with Jelder as our guide- experienced and patient with the kids. the quadrimoto- is not that exciting. Bare in mind that if you are rafting with kids- make sure you come on the dry season, when the water level is low.

Room Tip: the lower rooms jave a nicer view to the river.

Absolutely beautiful hotel, with gorgeous views of the river and nearby mountains. Loved the room and little private patio. Impeccably clean! You will see the staff constantly cleaning and taking care of the area. And they are friendly, too! The only small issue was not being able to use the Wi-Fi in your room, but the lobby area only. El Molino will be my choice again if I am back to Lunahuana one day. It is on an expensive side but worth every sol/dollar you pay. Thank you, El Molino staff, for the memorable and relaxing stay!

I've been fortunate enough to have stayed in many 'up market' hotels and 'clubs' all over Peru and whilst some are undoubtedly better than others, they invariably share one thing in common... they somehow manage to fail badly in one way or another - often with simple things that get overlooked. Such as not hiring/training staff that give good service, spending a lot of money on the hotel building but forgetting about the standard of the rooms or giving you half washed towels and so on.

Not so with El Molino in Lunahuana! This is the first hotel I've stayed in in Peru where you really get a sense that owner(s) has worked hard to ensure every detail has been taken care of. The grounds are well kept, the cabins and rooms are fitted to a high standard, the staff are friendly, the pool is clean, the food is excellent, the towels don't smell! The location is good - right on the river. We have stayed here twice now and each time have not been disappointed. The only criticisms I can think of are the free wireless, for which there is only coverage in the reception area - it would be ideal if you could get a good signal everywhere, which would not be hard to do as the grounds are quite compact - and I'd have to say that it's also a bit on the expensive side for Peru considering it's location but, trust me, you can pay a lot more and get a lot less. I think it's worth the money.

As for Lunahuana itself, it's a nice getaway just a couple of hours or so from Lima, the town is pleasant, plenty to see and do over a weekend - rafting being the main attraction - and the drive up the valley is good fun, so long as you don't get stuck behind a truck!

Following a reservation I was about to go and pay 100% of the stay in advance as requested and to confirm the amount I called back a couple of hours after making the reservation and I was told that in the meantime the rooms had been sold to someone else ..... And that the hotel was full ....Thanks a lot !!!
