“Five star rustic at it's best!”
Reviewed February 24, 2009

This hotel has the most beautiful natural grounds. They have several complimentary tours that show off their grounds. We took pictures of tiny orchids through magnifying glasses. They also roast coffee and dry tea on the premises.
What a treat after a long day at amazing Machu Picchu.

WOW! The MP Inkaterra is an incredible hotel! We were given a complimentary upgrade on our room upon check in. We arrived at our room which included a queen bed, a table with two chairs, two lounge chairs with a table, a closet, and a bathroom with shower, 2 bottles of water, robes, slippers, and a hair dryer. The room did feel damp, but we had just had a rain shower. Once we got the fire going, everything dried out. The recepcion also has de-humidifers available. The grounds and buildings are gorgeous, and all the staff was very helpful. Complimentary tea time in the afternoon, and pisco sours in the bar.

Our dinner in the dining room was the best we had in Peru. The Inkaterra Cafe was closed when we were there. The roof was being re-thatched. We went on one of the tours provided by the hotel to see the Spectacled Bears, Yogui and Pepe. The hotel property is part of a rehabilitation program for the bears. We enjoyed watching them eat their breakfast, one grape at a time! Pepe is a lifer, but they are hoping to return Yogui to the wild in the near future.

The only "con" about this hotel was that the internet was slow, and there is no Wi-fi in the rooms. Not that this concerned us much since we were on vacation and not in town for business.

this was arranged by our tour guide - what a wonderful place to retreat to after being at Machu Picchu - so much better than Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge (highly overrated!). Inkaterra located at Aquas Calientes - 30min bus ride from the top of Machu Picchu. We were greeted by knowledgable staff - taken to a suite that had complementary pisco brandy and dried fruit waiting for us. The restaurant offered great food. In the am we went on a nature walk led by a biologist whom had lots of information to share about the various orchids and other rainforest vegetation seen. While not using the spa facilities, others appeared to be pleased with same.
Would certainly recommend this location.

14 of us stayed in seven rooms here. (Despite the adequate size of the rooms, they wouldn't let families stay with more than two to a room) The place was beautiful, but the rooms stank of mildew. It was the "rainy season", but no other hotel we stayed at throughout our trip had this problem. It wasn't just one or two rooms, all of us complained of the problem.
Very much an idealized DIsneyesque hotel---claiming to be in the style of a "typical Andean village"---Yeah right.

We spent two nights here and we enjoyed every moment. The hotel is right beside the train station and we were met by hotel staff at the station who take care of your luggage and bring you to the lobby to let you settle in. Our room was extremely spacious and we liked how they have tried to blend in the hotel as much as possible to its surroundings. Having a log fire to come back to in the evening was special and the turn down service which included hot water bottles in the bed. Cosy!

The food was first class as was the staff attention. We did some of the tours provided within the extensive hotel grounds which were very interesting and worthwhile. Also enjoyed the Pisco Sours before dinner!

Although it was a bus trip up to Machu Picchu, we are definitely glad we choose Inkaterra over the Sanctuary Lodge. It does get busy up there while Inkaterra always felt miles away from the hordes of tourists but still had the magic of Machu Picchu.

  • Liked — How well it fitted in with the surroundings. Lots of special touches added to the experience

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in Aguas calientes. Set in wonderful jungle like grounds, it was a great place to stay. The food was excellent and our room was superb the balcony and open fire were the best. Room service is fantastic, beds very comfortable. There are no tvs in the room but you really don't need one especially with and open fire and the sound of nature. There are loads of free excursions offered by the hotel including a chance to see spectacled bears. There are hummingbirds in their droves and we spent a long time watching them feed. There is so much to do here I would recommend this place to anyone. It holds extra magic for me as my partner proposed at the inkaterra!

Visited Machu Picchu in March 2008 for 2 day/ 1 night.

Wow, what an amazing location for a hotel.
Originally we were meant to stay at the Sanctuary Lodge, however at the last minute our travel agent booked us into the Inkaterra since the Sanctuary was overbooked – which is the best thing that could of happened since the Inkaterra was an awesome hotel!

On first arrival at the hotel I was a little sceptical since it was raining heavily and the hotel looked dated and was sort of not what I expected (although I am not sure what I was expecting). But once we got into the room and had a shower in the beautiful bathroom with one big skylight as the roof I was in love with the Inkaterra.

The room was also very cosy, even though we did not have a fire place. The room was equipped with mosie repellent and lovely oils to keep the nasty bugs at bay. The room was extremely tranquil and so was the setting. Our room was in a block of about 6 rooms, but we did not hear a sound from other guests. We found the rooms to be very peaceful…all you could hear was nature. Additionally on first entering the room I was shocked that there was no TV or mini-bar, but it really added to the whole
Ambience of the hotel – you really do not need a TV or mini-bar when you can sit on your balcony and listen to nature.

Unfortunately we did not get an opportunity to enjoy the spa or the jungle tour and the many other activities on offer in the hotel. We wished we had booked the Inkaterra for at least an additional two days to enjoy some of the amazing activities on offer.

Location: Excellent, in the Jungle and walking distance to the town.
Food: All meals were outstanding. Selection and service exceptional.
Reception: Staff very friendly, informative and helpful
Rooms: Tranquil & cosy.

I don’t want to carry on too much but this hotel was fantastic and we loved every minute of our stay.
