We spent the past three weeks (in May 2012) traveling in South America - mostly Peru. The Sumaq Hotel, along with my tour company (Monica at Go2Peru.com) for the Cuzco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu portion of our trip pulled off the greatest event I could've imagined. The hotel staff (especially Alicia) arranged and executed a surprise Inca-style wedding for my wife. Incredible!! Down to (at my request of course) fake itineraries for the day to keep her in the dark.
I also have to say I spent three months prior to finding them in vain, trying to arrange for the wedding in Machu Picchu/Cuzco.
Stayed only one night, but it was such a classy hotel. As someone ealier wrote, hard to believe there was such a top-notch hotel - accommodations and restaurant - so deep in the interior of Peru. I hope no one builds next to them, because it's quietly situated at the end of the road headed up to Machu Picchu with a fabulous view of the river valley in both directions.
The restaurant was magnificant. Service - again, cannot say enough about the hospitality of the staff - everyone.
If I had known it would have been such a wonderful stay, I would have planned to stay there a couple days longer. A "can't-go-wrong" hotel if you want a memorable stay on your visit to Machu Picchu.
