When my husband and I decided to go to Peru to visit our granddaughter and her boyfriend, who were spending about six weeks there, I went to the Internet to find accommodations in Pisac, the town where they would be staying during our time with them. I found several hotels and hostals listed; however, as soon as I saw photos of The Pisac Inn, I was hooked. The Inn was for us, just based on the photos!
I have booked a lot of hotels on the Internet and have been unpleasantly surprised by many because the photos just weren’t representative of the hotels themselves. Not so with The Pisac Inn! I just knew from the messages that I received from Roxana, the sweet communicator at the Inn, that we’d love the facility. Roxana made us feel welcome even before we arrived. Plus . . . our granddaughter checked out the Inn when they got there (about two weeks ahead of us), and she said, “Grammy, you made the right choice!”
When we arrived, the young ladies on duty at registration that afternoon welcomed us with open arms. Almost immediately after we went to our room, one of them brought coca tea to us. Delicious and delightful and a must to give us energy for the evening!
A true serendipity awaited us when we went down for breakfast on our first morning – Jose, our most hospitable host. We had a choice of fresh fruit salad with yogurt or scrambled eggs, both served with coffee/tea and rolls/butter/homemade jam. My husband assured him that he wanted the fruit salad but WITHOUT yogurt. Jose just smiled and granted him his wish. Each day, Jose visited with us while we ate breakfast, filling us in on local attractions, giving us history “lessons,” and just in general charming us with his hospitality. Of course, if we hadn’t wanted to talk to him while we ate, he wouldn’t have imposed himself on us. We just happen to like to chat! On the day before we were to leave, Jose informed us that there would be a strike in Cuzco the next day and that we would need to depart in the wee hours of the morning in order to avoid it. He immediately arranged for a cab to come for us at 4:00 a.m. the next day. Later that afternoon, he gave us an update, telling us that the strike would begin at midnight and that we needed to leave right after dinner so that we could spend the night in Cuzco. He reserved a room for us as soon as we gave him the go ahead, and he also arranged for the cab to be at the Inn to take us to Cuzco around 8:00 p.m. If he hadn’t been so caring for his guests, we’d have missed our plane home.
Our room at The Pisac Inn was lovely, just the way it was on the Internet, and it was immaculate. The housekeeper, like the innkeepers, was so friendly and efficient. And the restaurant . . . well, you’ll have to eat there to believe that we had our best Peruvian food right at the Inn! Absolutely delicious!
I can’t say enough nice things about The Pisac Inn and all who work there. We plan to go back to Pisac someday, and Jose and Roxana’s Inn will once again be our “home away from home”!
