I knew going in that this was not going to be an extravagant hotel, but had heard that the kids would enjoy the guinea pigs (Cuey) running around outside and the alpacas, including a newborn when we were there.
Most of the front desk staff were very kind, especially when my daughter got ill. They sent oxygen to the room immediately and allowed us a late check-out with no hassle. They arranged our taxi when asked, explained the expected costs and went to buy stamps for us (I wish hotels would sell stamps on-site, but I haven't seen that in general).
I would say it was the staff that made the experience nice. The men who worked outside with the animals stopped their very labor-intensive work to assist us in petting the baby alpaca and getting our pictures.
There was a woman doing hand crafts near our room and her prices were A LOT lower than what I saw when we visited the Uros islands.
The restaurant staff (especially a tall young woman whose name I don't recall) were so friendly, even calling us when we nearly overslept and missed breakfast asking if we were coming or if we wanted breakfast taken to our room before it was put it away.
The housekeeper for our room came immediately when we wanted/needed something very early one morning and helped us happily.
It's a little old and not a luxury, or even a 4-star hotel perhaps, but we enjoyed our stay here because of the helpful and kind staff. Oh, and they lent us a new transformer so we could finally charge our electronic items. *NO pool if the kids are looking forward to swimming
