Beautifully decorated room and hotel, great shop, excellent food and dining room with a full view of Lake Titicaca enhanced by the flower gardens and humming birds that seek the nectar of the blossoms. A very comfortable stay with in door pool and spa.

Room Tip: All very nice rooms have a view of the Lake

This hotel has a beautiful view of the lake and stunning gardens. Very serene, away from the hustle and bustle. However, you must be aware that this hotel is so isolated that if you need anything at all like an atm machine, a bottle of water, liquor, a restaurant besides the one in the hotel etc. then you must taxi in and out of puno 20 mins each way, just something to be aware of.

I had a beautiful view of the lake from my room, with a beautiful terrace right outside the door and very serene areas to sit and relax. The food and service was excellent. Very nice gift shop with reasonable prices. I would love to return and would recommend this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: I had a room on the second floor close to the dinning room. Was very convenient.

Sleeping close to the Titikaka lake, with an amazing view from your room... but the best of all: the brilliant service and the magnificent dishes !!! I never thought before about trying a ceviche on the altiplano (because it is a typical coast dish) however.... this Ceviche is just WONDERFUL !!!

Another important point to mention is the high vibration energetic point where it is located : between the sacred lake and the temple of fertility... plus... the hotel has quartz stones and a peaceful meditation room with a "golden view" to the lake in the sunshines...

I highly recommend everyone to book this hotel... and you can do it right on their website !!!

Room Tip: Ask the ones with view to the Titikaka Lake

When we reached the hotel my husband was immediately disappointed, he was expecting a grand entrance I guess. The gravel drive is deceiving when you enter the hotel. The grounds have beautiful flowers and gardens and a fun stone labyrinth for the young at heart. We enjoyed a drink sitting at a gazebo overlooking the lake at sunset and it was so quiet we could not determine if we had heard such silence before. While it is lakefront, the lake is at least a good 150 yards from the hotel. We did walk down to the lake along a gravel path, and spoke to several locals on the way. They were very friendly and even gave me sugarcane to feed to the sheep that were near the path. We ate at the restaurant which was alright. The rooms were also very clean and extremely well maintained!

Room Tip: We had a triple room with three singles, one for our son also, on the third floor. All rooms have a...

Taypikala Lago Hotel in Puno is on the shore of Lake Titicaca. Beautiful views of the lake and the starry night sky. As with all the Taypikala hotels, the food is outstanding! The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean with very comfortable bedding. This hotel also has a very nice gift shop with good prices. I will definitely return to this one!

Room Tip: The upper floors have better views of the lake but there is no elevator so If you have trouble with...

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel at the end of May 2013 while visiting Lake Titicaca and the surrounding area. Our group consisted of folks from Canada, Great Britain and Romania and numbered 23. Our stay at this hotel was not only delightful and comfortable, it felt like a home away from home. Our tour of Lake Titicaca and area was amazing because we had the pleasure of Jorge Luis Delgado as our tour guide.
The hotel is located on the Lake (ask for a room with this view) and the early morning walk and mediation time at Lake Titicaca was amazing – it was one of the memorable parts of my trip. The gardens were lovely as was our celebration and ceremony at the fire pit.
As for the restaurant located on site, the food was plentiful and delicious, with a great selection and quality, the staff friendly and attentive. I will certainly make a point of staying here on my next trip to Peru and Lake Titicaca

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view !
