This stay was one night part of a trip package. Personally, had I known in advance a few of the things that bothered me, I would have upgraded. Good first: the hotel is very near the beach. Our room 304 directly faced the bay which is very pretty with boats and a harbor. The balcony is nice and the view is terrific. Two blocks NE is a lot of small town center with lots of shops and street vendors plus restaurants. We ate at the Juan Pablo which was good and reasonable. The Ballestas boat tour left from the pier right across the street and a bit west of us so it was an easy walk there too. Free Wifi that worked. In my opinion Paracas is a better place to take the Nazca tour from because of the beautiful Pacific coast and the Ballestas Island tour. Glad we did not go to Ica as it is inland surrounded by desert.
Now the negatives: TV not any English channels, no coffeemaker or hot water pot, drinks in bar refrigerator are expensive, generally old feeling on the interior, no window screens let in bugs, have to open windows to get any air as no AC, light bulbs are so dim can't read by them, no bottled water furnished but you can buy at 4 soles ($1.60), no elevator to 3rd level.
