My husband and I arrived dirty and sweaty, with a blue rice bag containing all our belongings after completing five days hiking/camping the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu. We were warmly greeted with cool juice. When the front desk attendant heard we intended to return to Machu Picchu again the next day, she immediately noted the time (late afternoon) and sent a porter to town to purchase admission tickets and round trip bus pass for us. She also upgraded our room when she learned it was our anniversary. It was simply fabulous! Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine with the majestic view of the mountains and river at sunset was perfect. The hotel is immaculate.The bedding luxurious. The bathroom was definitely 5 star- by American standards--very large. It had a large 2 person jacuzzi and separate shower. Dinner (included in room cost) was a 5 course, gourmet dining experience with impeccable service. Buffet breakfast (also included with room) had large selection of fresh fruit, meat, cheese, cereal, pastries, breads and juices coffee. Next day for return to Machu Picchu, bus picked us up and dropped us off at hotel. Hotel also allowed us to check out late so we could take a shower after Machu Picchu, before the long train ride back to Cusco at 4 pm. I can't think of a single thing that needs improvement!
