“Beautiful and serene”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

this hotel is located right next to the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley. With that being said, it is magnificent, and it is our favorite hotel for our entire trip. we stayed in the Junior Garden Suite. We loved the space! Surprise, surprise, we Texans just love big things! :) The room was clean, service was standard for hotel of such caliber, and food was quite good. We enjoyed mostly the view of the mountains and river. We had dinner in the terrace. It was cold sitting outside but the very nice female staff lit the fire pit for us. The hotel provided throws so guests can keep themselves warm if needed. The alcohol we consumed also helped warmed us up as well. Although we were much younger than the other guests who were staying at the hotel, we like to be surrounded by more mature, quiet, cordial, respectful people. Needless to say, we were very sad to leave the property the following morning.

Room Tip: Garden Suite is perfect for a couple!

Belmond has a superb property in this hotel. The rooms are huge and very comfortable, with gracious patios overlooking the river. But travel agents may book this as a place to crash after trekking the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is so much more than that!
The staff is professional and aims to please. The restaurant is first class, on a world standard. The spa is well-appointed, and I'm mad at myself for not booking a massage. The steam and hot tub may give you a chance to chill out and meet other guests.
Another way to relax is to sit on the patio and watch the llamas graze. Spend time here and put your feet up. They will need it after the fantastic touring you should do in this wonderful part of Peru. This is a special hotel.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a large group, they have rooms that can accommodate you. We were alone in...

We visited the hotel for 3 nights in site May, 2014 and found it beautiful. It was a great resting place to acclimitise before heading to Macchu Picchu. The rooms are lovely, very clean and well decorated. The restaurant is incredible. The food and service is so good you won't want to leave. The staff made us very welcome and provided 5 star service. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Wonderful staff and hotel. The Chef is incredible.

We recently stayed at the Rio Sagrado for three nights while exploring the Sacred Valley. It was a wonderful setting and the service was second to none. The setting along the river was peaceful and serene and most rooms overlook the open expanse of grass that leads down to the river. The decor was low key and they had the most beautiful weavings hung throughout the property. The restaurant and bar were inviting and the food was excellent. But, service is their high point. They could not do enough to make our stay special.

Room Tip: We were in Room 5 and it was an excellent location.

The Rio Sagrado is a top level hotel in seemingly the middle of nowhere. Clean, upscale and in an absolutely beautiful setting. Room was not over the top in furnishings, but very nice...beautiful, clean bathroom...great food, spa, and service...wish we were there longer, but we had one great night.

I can only give this hotel 4 stars due to their laundry prices, see below.
We stayed here 3 nights while doing different activities in the valley before heading to Machu Picchu. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms stunning with views of the grounds and rivers. The showers surrounded by glass with dense bushes/flowers surrounding it so no one can see inside.
The alpaca's are a cool tourist attraction of the property. The property also has ladies that come around each morning and afternoon selling their wares, if you didn't get anything in Cusco. Good prices too.
We ate at the restaurant several nights and never had a bad meal. Service was great and staff very friendly. The hotel also arranged for a taxi to take and pick us up at a place to eat in town, about 10 minutes away.

We got a great chuckle next night with a letter from the staff, obviously via google translate. They were very cute notes

WARNING- We came from the Galapagos to this hotel, needed laundry done. We knew it wouldn't be cheap (no hotel is) BUT 5 dollars for each underwear? I decided to do the sink wash, my husband paid 97.00 for laundry and our friends paid 240.00 for laundry. So next time we pay the overage charges at the airport and bring more clothing, it would be cheaper that way. No hotel should take advantage of their guests and gouge them for laundry.

All in all great place.

By far one of the nicest hotels we stayed out. The view of the river was worth every dollar. Feed the llamas and alpacas in the morning! Don't miss the restaurant just steps from your door. As a food writer they past my very critical standards. The food was some of the best I had in Peru. Don't' miss their Barbecue NIght!
