Our party of four had reservations here our last night of a rough 6-day circuit, after visiting many sites within the spectacular northern Andes region. We pulled into this beautiful hotel about 10:30am, not having had breakfast where we'd slept the night before in order to ensure enough time to get to the falls. We asked if it was possible to eat a little something and the staff were immediately responsive. Within minutes, a table was ready on the patio in full view of the well kept grounds, the pool, two baby llamas, and of course, the Falls in the distance. We enjoyed a full breakfast despite the hour,and set out on horseback not long afterward, having already chosen our dinner entrees from among many options. The horseback trek and hiking were strenuous and challenging, but being right IN the Falls, up close and personal, was worth the pain! We even spotted Peru's national bird, the elusive bright orange Cock of the Rock, near the trail. We were exhausted and hungry upon our return and were delighted to enjoy HOT showers before sitting down to a our delicious meals without any delay. We'd ordered a variety of entrees, salad, wine, and dessert, all to our liking. Our server was conscientious and helpful. Later, in the tv room, we viewed our photos from the day on the flat screen and sipped delicious pina coladas.Thankfully, the beds were wonderfully comfy, the pillows soft, and the next morning we'd all had the best sleep of the entire trip. We agreed that our accommodations in this very remote spot in Peru, far away from any major city (and the village nearby so small there is not even an elementary school) were much above expectations. For those looking for luxury and fancy frills, don't come here. But, for anyone who enjoys being in one of the most beautiful and remote of locations, and who appreciates that the staff are trying their best to please the guests, this place is a real gem!! It is perfectly lovely AND comfortable, and, I might add, VERY CLEAN, To some, Gotca Andes Lodge may not rank as a Five Star hotel, but to me it will be one of my best memories of Peru.
