This hotel is fantastic. We visited when I was about 16 (enroute to Machu Picchu of course). While there's obviously not a lot for children or teens to do (bring books!), the hotel was amazing. The set-up is very unique, the property is gorgeous, the rooms were awesome! We went in September, so the weather was kind of perfect! The food was fantastic, service was great, everything was wonderful!
I would recommend drinking the coca tea that they give you at check-in. Bring Diamox! The side effects of the altitutde are terrible (nosebleeds, headaches, difficulty breathing), but the hotel does their best to assist the guests with everything.
