My family and I (two adults, two kids under 7) decided to stay at the Sumaq based upon the positive reviews on TA. I booked through their website, and got a 50% discount off the second night through an online promotion, which included full breakfast for the four of us and full dinner for two adults. We had a superior deluxe double room on the second floor with a direct view of the Urumbamba River. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. There was ample room for everybody. As I said, the room faced the river which is quite amazing, but for those who do not enjoy the sound of rushing water, you may want to request an interior room. I found the sound to be quite relaxing, while others may find it to be a bit loud. I and my family had two very good night's sleep.
The staff is extremely attentive without being overbearing. A glass of iced coca tea welcomed us along with small cakes and cookies as it was tea time when we arrived. A complimentary pisco sour prior to dinner on our first night was very good. The food at the hotel's restaurant can best be described as "novoandino" and is very good. A full three-course dinner was included with our stay (beverages are extra). I highly recommend the classical trout ceviche with rocoto chiles - fresh, spicy and delicious! The breakfast buffet was quite extensive, with everything from fresh fruit and yogurt to eggs, bacon and andean toast made with quinoa.
This hotel is in a great location, has excellent food and service and is suitable for all types of travelers (singles, couples, families, etc.). The hotel is quite eco-conscious by recycling and minimizing waste - even the architecture pays homage to the Inca way of building by working with the existing environment - check out the partially-open stairwell built against the rock. If we are ever lucky enough to get back to Machu Picchu again, we would definitely stay here.
