Top quality luxury hotel in the midst of poverty
Posted Sep 7, 2016
My wife (who is a native of Lima) and I were in Lima for a weekend to attend a wedding. The hotel is located in on the ocean in Mira Flores which I am told is one of the nicest areas of Lima. Nice is a relative term as some of the poverty is evident walking around the hotel, though it is nothing compared to one one sees on the drive from the airport. The hotel itself is as good as anything one will find in any top U.S. market, which makes the contrast all the more impressive. There is a park across the street and an outdoor mall within walking distance and the ocean is visible. Sadly, nobody is allowed on the beach because of the pollution. They upgraded our room to one with a sauna and the largest bathtub I have ever seen (bigger than the ones inside rooms in hotels in Cancun). There is a daily breakfast buffet with views of both the ocean and the city. The service is what one would expect at a five star property. Also, they worked with us with respect to the terrible flight times to/from DFW (arrive 7 a.m.; depart midnight) -- we paid for one extra day and were allowed to check in upon arrival at 8:30 a.m. and stay until 6 p.m. on the day of our departure (instead of having to pay for two extra days, we paid for one extra).
