Reviews for Aranwa Pueblito Encantado del Colca
Place looked good and this was it's only redeeming factor. Classed as 4/5 star, no staff I met spoke English. States it has two pools, indoors about the size of a large hot tub and outside has not been cleaned for god knows how long, at least the frogs liked it. Very isolated so no choice but to eat in and of course the prices reflect the captive audience. Rooms are the worst part, being Lodge accommodation the ground floor did not allow you to leave it open for air and the windows did not open either. Hoped to get a good look at the stars that night but light pollution was awful hence in the room it was like sleeping in daylight. As a location it's top class, as a hotel certainly isn't

Getting to this hotel is all part of the experience. The last mile or so is down to the canyon floor on a dirt track, but boy is it worth it when you get there: it was so peaceful. Not all of our party were booked into this little village and spa resort, but those of us who were here thought it fantastic. We were lucky enough to have a two story apartment with lounge upstairs and bedroom and bathroom downstairs. As mentioned there is a spa on sight where you can have treatments as well an indoor pool which we braved. It was a trifle chilly but very bracing nonetheless. The others in our group opted to go to the hot springs instead and enjoyed the warmth and relaxation they offered. We all dined together in the evening after having a drink at the bar, and as other people have commented they don't have a vast selection of drinks with only 2-3 bottles of each kind of beer. However, this is a minor niggle. The food in the evening was good, although I was a little disappointed after waiting 20 minutes for my Volcano inspired pudding which was rather lack lustre when it arrived. Despite the pudding failure a lovely place to stay. I would happily return.

Arriving there is a little bit stressy... We had to change from a standard bus to several 9 persons vans, thru a snake mountain road (lots of female screams...), but the hotel is very cosy with several 2 store bungalows, a small chapel, ponds, little free alpacas, like a small farm. There is nearby (not free...) 3 small pools with hot springs (one of them surely around 40ÂșC... They have a inside pool and massages and before dinner they thought us how to do Pisco sour...

We arrived with no expectations and left with some great memories. Yes the road in is a bit narrow and treacherous but that just adds to the experience, The resort is just outside Chivay, right beside the river beautifully nestled against the valley sides. We stayed in one of the suites. it was spacious, clean, comfortable and, complete with a wood burring fireplace reminded us of a ski chalet. Breakfasts and dinners in the dining room were very good. We didn't use it but there are natural hot springs on the grounds by the river.

No complaints about my room, it was large with two double beds and a large bathroom with a big round tub and a separate shower cubicle. The room was very clean and the underfloor heating was perfect for me. However, the service is lacking. One of the problems is that the staff do not speak good English. My lights were not working so I went to reception and tried to explain the problem but the girl did not understand. At the same time I asked for my passport back but she said she had not photocopied it and to come back, reception was empty at the time. I went back with the maintenance card from the room and pointed at the light bulb. A guy came within a few minutes. He was trying to say something to me in Spanish which I took to be I did not have to be there, so I left indicating to him to lock the door. When I got back the lights were working but the door was unlocked. In the bar after having a glass of local beer and asking for another they said they did not have any left. We had another local beer and again when we asked for another one they said they did not have any left. Finally, at dinner there were four of us at the table, one couple and two singles and we gave three room number for separate bills. When the food came two were warm and one cold, the other was a salad. My meal would have been good except it was not hot. When the bills arrived there was one for the couple and one for the other two single people. The service side of the hotel needs addressing.
