We stayed at the Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel for one night in early September 2005 as part of a tour. My only regret is that we did not have a 2nd night there. Our group hiked the last 12km to Mahcu PIcchu (from KM 104) and then took the bus down to Aqua Calientes and checked in to the MP Pueblo Hotel. We had a wonderful dinner there, and we were up early next day to go back to the ruins. The hotel breakfast buffet was fantastic, with hot items cooked to order rather than in warming trays as at most hotels. If you have time there is a sanctuary for the native Peruvian Spectacled Bear, but it has limited hours which did not coincide with our schedule. There are also lush gardens with beautiful orchids, there were hummingbird feeders which attracted amazing varieties of hummingbirds. It is really a wonderul place. The rooms were simple but very nice, with nice amenities in the bathroom. We had no trouble with bugs but we were there in September at end of dry season.
If you are up to it do that hike into Machu Picchu from KM 104, you need permits and should go with a guide but it is a fantastic hike. We did it in about 7 hours including an hour break for a sack lunch and a few other short breaks along the way. There is a hostel at half way point for bathroom break. Not sure if you would want to do it in wet season, also trekking poles (note: you cannot use them in the ruins without tip protectors) are very helpful as you climb a LOT of stone steps on the trail, the incas must have invented the first stairmaster...you definitely will feel the burn after that hike!! A note on food, another posting recommended avoiding salads/fresh fruiit. I agree, even at the Santuary hotel, a couple in our group ate salads at the lunch buffet and did not feel well after even though the guides assured us that it was safe to eat. So best advice eat only cooked food even if you are staying in 5 star hotels.
