We stayed for three nights but split the stay as we also took the train to Machu Picchu and ventured overnight to Agua Caliente. This was a great way to acclimatise to the high altitude. The service from all the staff was attentive and highly professional. Dining was sensational in their restaurant and the breakfast equally of calibre. They held our large suitcases whilst we ventured off site to reduce the burden of weight on our overnight absence. On our last full day in Cusco we asked the concierge for advise on what to do and were offered the services of a private driver and half day or full day tour of the Sacred Valley. We chose the half day tour and our guide and driver were very professional well educated and extremely considerate of all our needs. Water bottles provided and alternate routes of travel suggested at a moments notice to maximise the experience of the particular groups dynamics. The location is a once in a life time reason to splurge and go the extra cost if comparing to other hotels in the area. We certainly would recommend this hotel and it's services and hope to be able to share the experience again if blessed by the opportunity to visit Peru once more!
