This was our first hotel stay in Peru as part of our honeymoon so it was lovely to get a hotel which was cleverly designed (see title), clean and well kept. It was also a nice touch to have petals left by the staff in the shape of hearts on our bed. We were able to chillout and enjoy our stay by the pool, after our long journey from the UK. The pool water was cold but as it was hot, it was a welcome relief.
The hotel is directly on the shoreline so we could see the Pacific Ocean from our hotel room and we did go and explore the beach. However we made a quick decision not to go for a dip in the ocean or partake in any watersports when we saw the dead jellyfish on the sand and live jellyfish in the water. But it was nice to watch the Pelican catching fish as well.
The only downside is the location which is on the far edge of Paracas, making it difficult to use other hotels or restaurants for alternative eating, unless using a taxi. However the food at the restaurant was good and we were only staying for 2 nights so it did not cause too much of a problem.
We were also able to extend our room occupation until a later time for checkout without any problems. This may have been because the hotel wasn't that full or their association with the tour agents we were using, who negotiated this for us.
Well situated for Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands excursions. We were also able to complete an extra trip of dune buggying and sand boarding in the desert, from the same location.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others if they have a similar itinerary.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On the edge of the lovely Paracas Bay and surrounded by the sublime setting of the Paracas National Reserve sits La Hacienda Bahia Paracas, a hotel that is more than just a place to sleep; rather, it is a refuge, just three hours south of Lima, for anyone seeking peace and tranquility far from the hustle and bustle of the city. When you stay here, be prepared to experience sunsets beyond compare, perfect beaches as if created by Hollywood, nature bursting all around you, and utter, complete relaxation. There are times when you want to experience something unique, so we offer you our spectacular swimming pool that affords you a marvelous view of the bay. When you want a late afternoon snack, swing by our café; if you want to indulge yourself, arrange for a massage at the Oceano Spa, or if it is just a quiet spot where you can curl up with a good book, park yourself at a corner in the El Candelabro Lounge. If it is fine dining and excellent food you seek, then look no further than the El Coral Restaurant, and then end the day in the company of live Peruvian music in our Marineros Bar. For people who want adventure and nature, our hotel and restaurant have joined forces to create a huge list of outdoor activities.There is also our specially built museum/exhibition hall where we put on view more than 500 Pre-Hispanic artifacts: pottery, textile, metal, and feather art. It's a trip through Peru's rich cultural tradition.We have on display a collection of more than 1,000 sea shells that hail from all over the world; their vivid colors and unimaginable shapes prove to us that there is no higher art than what nature herself creates.Cecilia Alonso Ferrer; peruvian, with studies in the School of Arts at Catholic University in Lima, Peru.
