Though Hotel Paracas dates back to 1944, it was completely rebuilt (save an original boating dock) in 2007, giving the hotel a fresh and modern feel. Interiors are designed with a palate of white and sea blues to reflect the hotel’s beachfront location, and all 120 guestrooms come with inner sitting areas as well as furnished balconies for prime relaxation amid pool or ocean views. Take advantage at their spa and 24-hour fitness center, and if you’ve brought the tots, there’s plenty of kid-friendly distractions (think: arts and crafts, treasure hunts, movie time) via the onsite Explorer Club.
In the Area
While the resort is designed so you don’t have to leave the grounds, it’s worth renting a car to explore some of the historical and natural diversions nearby. It’s just a 30-minute drive to the Nazca Lines, a collection of mysterious geoglyphs scratched into the desert by Pre-Incan inhabitants. Further afield, take in a day of wine tastings at the Pisco vineyards, the area where the majority of country’s wine is produced. If you’re looking to stay local, make the mile-long trip to the Paracas National Reserve, home to over 215 species of migratory birds and ancient archeological sites.
How to Get There
At the end of our 3 week tour in Peru we booked the hotel Paracas after our tour of the Nazca lines. The grounds are well maintained, one family pool and one adult pool that played lounge music - both were nice. Large, modern rooms in 2 level bungalows- we had a pool and ocean view that was nice. Service is very attentive and the restaurant serves great food. The breakfast is the best we had during our vacation. We had access to kayaks, paddle boards and a tiny catamaran but the water seemed dirty and cold. The sand is nice but the water isn’t clear as the resort seems to be located in a fishing or industrial bay. In short, great resort but location is so so because of the water.
We really enjoyed this hotel, beautiful ambiance, outstanding customer service from Manager Diego since the moment we checked in, all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Definitely would return to this place, it made a big difference.
My family of five stayed here for 8 nights in October. Its a beautiful hotel, great facilities. Food was lovely and the service was excellent. We did a couple of excursions, to see the Ballestas Islands which had incredible wildlife, plus a buggy ride on go-karts in the desert.The concierges were so helpful. The only criticism is the sewage smell, which you get occasionally. Not enough to damage the holiday but really unpleasant.I asked a few of the staff about it but couldn't get a straight answer.
