Hotel Majoro
Ranked #7 of 19 Hotels in Nazca
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stayed for one night at Hotel Majoro in Nazca. This is an old converted farmhouse with a very spacious courtyard. There are ponds and bridges and gardens and the whole setting was very peaceful and relaxing. A beautiful swimming pool was on the far side of the grounds. Because the rooms are old there are not enough electrical outlets (we needed to recharge our cameras, cell phones, and iPads) and there are no TVs in the rooms. However if the idea is just to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, this oasis will provide plenty of rest and relaxation. Our group did not use the restaurant, which was fairly large but empty on the evening we were there. All in all this location was a pleasant change from the other hotels on our trip.

Dear guest, thank you for your comments. Your perception for not having TV's in the rooms is absolutely correct. The whole idea is to disconnect your mind from your daily worries and just relax and enjoy nature.

This is really something different, it is slightly outside the city, but a gem. A very old farmhouse with bougainvillea's hundred of years old, all decorations are antiquities, pleasant staff, good restaurant, pool and nice antique decorated rooms. You can wonder through the rooms for hours admiring all the decorations.

The area and all common areas are lovely. Some areas are like a private collection if museum items. The rooms are disappointing. They must have better than what we stayed in. And the food was tragic unfortunately. Thought it would be good, but it really was very average. They could be so much better. And charging for wifi these days is a little insulting.

Dear Guest, thank you for your comments. I'm sorry to learn you were disappointed with your room. Yes, we have different rates for different types of rooms, but all are quite comfortable.
We offer our guests '' a la carte'' or buffet meals, local and international cuisine. Hopefully next time you visit us, you will find the menu satisfactory. Regarding Wi-Fi, we offer that service free of charge at the reception area, but if you wish to have it through out our premises, a fee of US $ 7.00 is charged for all your stay. By no means we want you or any of our guest feel insulted by the charge of that service. As we are at the countryside, the Hotel has to pay the local operator monthly a special fee for that service.

I stayed in this Hotel for 2 nights when I was visiting Nazca. The grounds are very lovely, the hotel has loads of gardens around the area and a great pool area. The owner spoke English, was very nice and so was the rest of the staff. The rooms were clean and nice, but I missed a tv since I was traveling alone and could not go anywhere on the evening (you need a taxi to get to the town, walking there at night is not recommended).
In their gardens live a a Llama and a Vicuña! I would not advise to touch them, they do not like it, but was great to take some pictures though, I also saw some birds and all, exploring their garden is kind of an adventure. The food was very nice, but waiter did not speak English so I recommend to practice your Spanish :) I can recommend this hotel anytime, I loved to stay there.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Majoro, 7kms out of Nazca in Peru. It is a beautiful, spacious converted Hacienda set in lush manicured gardens. A wonderful big swimming pool with alpacas, peacocks and a quinya wondering around it was magic. The staff and owners were so friendly and helpful, exceptional. The artworks displayed everywhere were mind boggling..original nazcan weavings from 400 AD and oil paintings and sculptures dating from 18th century to the present. The restaurant was great and the atmosphere throughout the whole grounds was fascinating, welcoming and charming. My family and I wished we had more time to soak up the relaxing but sophisticated atmosphere. We loved it and recommend it highly.

Do not let first impressions discourage you. The drive down a dusty, rocky road to a closed wooden gate to this walled-in hacienda shouldn't discourage you. Inside is a slightly worn but very charming and spacious hotel which was for centuries a convent and then a private residence and then a hotel, and its owners of the past seven years are doing very good things. There is work to be done here, but what is ready for visitors is already great. The dining room is large, decorated with massive antiques and fabrics from the Nazca period and serves very good food of nice variety. You could stay a week and never sit in the same nicely furnished room for your cocktail before dinner. The pool and deck area is large, and visited by a peacock, llama and alpaca. Beautiful grounds.
The manager, Enrique, went out of his way to help us, including hopping in our car to point out the way to an ancient aqueduct. There is an on-site weaver who allowed my wife a turn at the loom. There is a planetarium show that helped us understand and appreciate the Nazca Lines and their relationship to the stars. The hotel arranged our flight over the Lines.
Book the nicest room available because the prices are a bargain. No air conditioning, but none needed for cool desert nights.
