Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family of 5 came to stay with Cesar, Lucy and their two kids. We brought our two dads (70+ years old) and our son (5 years old). Cesar and his wife made sure we are very comfortable, he arranged to pick us up from a boat ramp in Puno (Kalapajra Port - this is where to locals from Uros go - you see the locals, not many tourists so that alone is already a much more authentic experience vs. the day tours coming out of the main port). Cesar showed us around the community by boat, we got to see how the locals fish, where his kids go to school etc. The place has a compost toilet, it has electricity and at night the beds have a ton of blankets and provide hot water bottles. The food is also very nutritious (using native ingredients such as quinoa dishes). Our son played with Cesar's son and they had a lot of fun. 100% recommend staying with Cesar's family, you will learn and experience so much more than just doing some group day tour.

We stayed at Cesar's Island for two nights. The experience was great. We arrived in puno really early in the morning and Cesar was really attentive and arranged to pick us up and welcome us with breakfast. With Cesar we learned a lot about the community. The room was big and clean and the food was great. Cesar's family will make sure that you have a great experience.

Uros Samarana Uta Lodge Charming, Comfortable, Local Let’s be clear from the outset. You come all the way to Peru, you want to learn about the culture and meet locals, travel to beautiful Lake Titicacca, and you’re going to stay in a large hotel run by some chain??? Really??? Cesar, Lucy and kids are as local as you’ll find!!! Don’t panic when you try and find on maps and you see the red marker in the middle of the water. It’s because his home is in the middle of the water!!! Let’s get started. Contacting Cesar is as easy as can be. He’s quick to respond to emails and whatsapp. He answered our questions and we quickly made our reservations. Arrival: Make sure you have his phone number with you for your driver. The traditional port is about 15 minutes north of town. There’s no way we would have found if we had rented a car. He was at the dock waiting for us and our bags were quickly loaded onto the boat. You really must arrive during the day (though his boat has a big light if you do come later). We came late in day and the views with the sun low as we approached his island were spectacular. You won’t believe it, but his island actually has several houses on it. And, yes, it’s floating. We were greeted by his wonderful family and bags were quickly brought to our room. We had a quick overview of island and settled into comfy chairs looking out. Room. It’s just like the pictures but they just don’t do it justice. Clean with lots of windows. Don’t expect the Ritz, but there was nothing lacking. Bed was amazing (how do they get it out there?!?!?!). Towels soft. Bottles of water at bedside. OK, the composting toilet took a bit to get used to, but only due to my city mind! There really is a full shower with lots of hot water. Not sure if I was imaging it, but I think I could feel the water motion as I fell asleep! Meals: There is another house that is the meeting/dining room. Meals were delish and definitely local. Lucy is the food maven and does a great job. This is also the room where you can recharge cell phones/tablets/camera. You can’t plug in your laptop. Internet was fine for email/whatsapp, but downloading any file took a long time. (but you’re not there to spend time on the web!) Duration: We were there two nights and one day. I would definitely plan on two full days. One day you’ll go on tour of the community. They really have schools, churches, a medical clinic and even a small soccer field. You can use the second day to go to Taquile. Departure: we had to leave at 6a (ughh), but Cesar was ready, Lucy had a light breakfast, and our taxi was waiting to take us to the airport in Juliana (a full hour drive). A side note. Weather was great, but there was a late season thunderstorm and watching the lightening over the shore was spectacular! A totally wonderful, authentic experience. This is the place to stay.

Our family enjoyed a couple days of relaxation at Cesar and Lucy's Lodge after a big hike on the Incan trail. Cesar and Lucy were so organized and took care of every detail- sending a taxi and then picking us up at boat landing. We stayed in the quadruple room where everyone in our family enjoyed their own bed. The food was delicious and when it got cold at night, Cesar brought us each a hot water bottle for our beds. We really enjoyed the educational tour Cesar gave our family - learning all about how the reed islands are built and the culture of the islands. The lake is absolutely beautiful and this family is very special!

We stayed for one night at Cesar and Lucy’s lodge. It was a great experience. Cesar and Lucy are originally from Isla del Uros, in contrast to other lodges which are run by not locals. From the beginning to the end of our trip Cesar had everything perfectly arranged. A taxi arrived on time to pick us up at the hotel. Cesar arrived by boat to bring us to his lodge. We were truly surprised by our room with private bathroom and terrace. Cesar took us on a boat tour to show us his Uros community and explained about local culture and customs. Back at the lodge Lucy prepared us a three course lunch, which was delicious! After there was time to swim and relax on our terrace. In the afternoon we made another boat trip and enjoyed the sunset. The three course diner was again very good. As it gets very cold at night Cesar installed a gas heater and provided hot water bottles to stay warm. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, the best we have had so far in Peru. A taxi was arranged to bring us back to the hotel. All was included in the price. We had a great stay and highly recommend this lodge because of the local experience. No need to visit the Uros Islands with an organized tour.

This was my favorite part of our entire trip! I've traveled quite a bit and I've never had an experience like this. It was the perfect mixture of relaxing, enjoyable, and cultural. There are a few other lodging options in the Uros reed islands, but this is the only one that is run by a true Uros family. Cesar, his wife, and his two adorable kids really make this experience perfect and memorable. They picked us up on a boat, drove us to their beautiful island that is in the perfect part of the lake with insane sunset views (see my picture below), and showed us our room. I was expecting the rooms to be more similar to tent camping, but they were really nice! The king size bed was so comfortable, the bedding was great, the rooms have electricity and a portable heater in them. The best part of the very private cottage we stayed in was the porch out front that had panoramic views. It was so relaxing and peaceful to sit on the daybed and read. The next day, Cesar and his daughter took us out on a traditional reed boat and explained the culture and history to us. Then, we hoped on another boat to get a tour around the islands. Cesar, and his parents, grew up in Uros and to say he knows everyone and everything is an understatement. All of our meals were incredibly made by Cesar's wife. We had chicken, veggies, rice, and fries one night and then a delicious breakfast with an omelette, pastries, bread, and fruit, followed by a lunch of fresh caught fish (I don't even like seafood and I ate ALL of it - so delicious!). Overall, Cesar and his family took great care of us and it was so much more accommodating than I expected it to be... especially for a reed island floating in the middle of a lake. We recommended Cesar's lodge to someone else we met on our trip and they also LOVED it. Keep in mind that the island can be quite cold at night, but there is a heater in the room, plenty of blankets, and they gave us a hot water bottle to put in the bed to keep our feet warm.

I had the best experience with Caesar and his family. To start, it was very easy to organize as he picked us up in his boat and took us straight to the lodge. The rooms are insanely spacious and eat have their own bathroom and balcony looking west. Had to be one of the best sunsets of my life. The food was incredible as well. Some of the best fish I've ever had. The tour was also fantastic. He showed us how they build the islands and took us to see the schools and other parts of the community. Incredible experience all together. I highly recommend staying with Caesar and his family. They truly work hard to give everyone a great experience!

This experience was the most special thing we did out of 3 months in Perú! The lodge is stunning and made for relaxing. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and very clean. Our group especially had the best time relaxing on the huge balconies right the water that come with each room. The lodge is run by Cesar and his family, and we loved hearing about their dreams and how much care they put into each stay. Everything we needed was taken care of for us, specialized meals, water, extra blankets. We got offered a sunset boat ride and were able to take out the canoe out anytime we wanted. After breakfast we took a tour of the community and learned about the history and the culture of this unique place. Cesar was very attentive and knowledgeable, and our group loved learning about the Uros community. I would recommend to all travelers coming to Perú to visit Puno! It wouldn’t be a complete visit without a stay at this family-run and local lodge. Thank you for everything Cesar and family! 😊

From our arrival at Puno station to the moment we were dropped off after a two night stay, everything was taken care of. The apartments are incredible and leave you wanting for nothing. The view of the lake directly from the balcony is spellbinding. The islands, their history and the community as a whole really make this a highlight for any trip to Peru. I couldn't recommend a stay with Cesar more highly.

The floating islands are a unique experience. Our lodge was beautiful with view to the lake. Tradicionaly decorated with handwork made by the owners. Comfortable beds, spacious room, heating and hot shower. Dont expect luxury though. The family cooks delicious food. Cesar (host) speaks English and Spanish (and Quechua), he took time to show us his community, explain how they leave, they history and daily life. We also had a boat tour in a totora boat. I can only further recommend it.
