We had the very good fortune of staying here for 2 nights as we acclimated in advance of Machu Picchu and then Cusco. We were advised to do this, rather than the reverse which is what most tourists do by a South American friend, she was SO right! Peru can be a tough trip, and the altitude issues are real. This hotel makes all the troubles disappear. The staff is attentive, speaks many languages, it is immaculate, welcoming, comfortable, safe, and you could spend days not leaving the grounds. Our room was quite nice, 2nd floor with a garden & mountain view. It was clean, well appointed, quality linen, and instant attention to any calls to the front desk. Breakfast is full of healthy food, with many options. There is much to explore on the grounds, it was a palace, a monastery, and an estate. There are many places to sit outside with fruit trees, glorious gardens, animals, and breathtaking views. We asked for an off site local restaurant suggestion, there are not many, and received this graciously. Yucay should not just be your stopping point between Cusco and Machu Picchu, it should be a destination and wherever you put this in your itinerary, you will be well-rested, attended to, and ready for your next stop. Any meals you can have down the road at Ananau...go there! We'll write seperately on this, but make sure you meet the owner who is wonderful, and meet Luci, who is by far the sweetest, most interesting, and lovely waitress in Peru!!
