Hotel isolated;quiet; perfect for us.

We had a wonderful vacation. My husband and I are independent world travelers. This is one of the nicest vacations we have taken.
The hotel,staff and,of course, the food were excellent. No complaints.
The hotel has it's own train to Machu Picchu. It however was booked when we arrived. The hotel managed alternate transportation for us. It worked out well. Our suggestion...when you make your reservations be sure to reserve your train ticket, if going to Machu Picchu.
Because the resort is so isolated, we hired a driver for day trips. It was inexpensive and we were able to see alot without all the hassle.
Be sure to go to the Sunday market at Pisaq....great fun...interesting museum along the way. Ask the concierge....very helpful..would go again..no hesitations.
Be sure to talk to our doctor about altitude sickness. We started diamox the day before we left. We had no problems the entire trip...including a trip to Lake Titicaca at 12000 feet.We,however, met multiple individuals,all ages, suffering from the altitude.
