Recent guest reviews

Once in a lifetime experience, perfect location, and beautiful grounds. I am a simple guy so the service was way over the top for me. Location just outside the Machu Picchu gate so we were first in line. Quite expensive, but once in a lifetime....

Amazing hotel. Right at Machu Picchu. Location, Location, Location. Food Excellent. Yes, it is expensive, but exxperience of staying at Machu Picchu worth It. Highly recommend.

Everything is excelent. Great location, and great service !

The hotel is nice and comfortable. The service and food are outstanding…the location is everything ! No views of Machu Picchu from the hotel or the rooms.

The only reason to stay here is to have easy access to Machu Picchu in the morning. There is nothing special AT ALL about the hotel itself. That being said, the staff are amazing and very helpful.

When we arrived in Aquas Calientes, it was pouring rain. A welcome sight was a representative from The Sanctuary lodge - compete with umbrellas and help with transport to MP and our luggage. Super breakfast but then again, paid a lot for it!! Dinner at lodge was average - especially for what they charge. Nice rooms, great location and help from staff - especially arrival and departure was extraordinary!!
