How to Get There
Our group of 16 friends stayed at the Libertador in June. The hotel is on the shore of a bay of Lake Titicaca, and the grounds are gorgeous. Flowers, beautiful view, wild guinea pigs in the bushes, llamas and alpacas (they belong to the hotel). Lobby is gorgeous, very nice bar.
1. The hotel is about 15 minutes from town, you have to get a cab to take you to the town of Puno to see markets, restaurants, etc.
2. Consistently, the "fresh" towels were damp. This happened several times, to most of us in the tour.
3 Service in the restaurant was erratic. Breakfast buffet was fine, but lunch and dinner were challenging. Sometimes service was fine, other times we were ignored and had to remind servers to take our order, bring our wine, bring our food, etc. Servers in the restaurant did not seem thrilled to be there.
4. The location can be cool, and heat is not turned on (for the entire hotel) until 4PM. Just an FYI.
1. The bar area is friendlier and you can order food there.
2. The elevation is 12,500 or 13,000. Make sure to HYDRATE, take you DIamox if you have it, drink the coca tea in the lobby.
We were looking foreword to our stay, but the ‘lake view’ room we were promised was looking over the parking lot. Staff in the Uros restaurant were quite rude and showed no desire to have our business.
The hotel itself was probably quite nice in the 1970s. The interior of the rooms is dates, the sheets in our room didn’t fit the bed and when we arrived the bed wasn’t properly made.
I would recommend you look some place else.
This is an excellent alternative in PUNO, to have all the advantages of viewing and seeing Lake Titicaca. We arrived and were extremely tired and it is always difficult when there is an issue. It was probably my mistake but i had booked a room first on the actual hotel website and then again months later when i did all my other trip reservations on a hotel booking site. They were for the same more inexpensive room. The hotel clearly did not want to give up their actual reservation as it was booked so long ago and asked me to check with the booking site. knowing how difficult this is in getting a refund, i asked if they could give me an alternative upgrade if i kept both reservations. Milagros to the rescue! She was at the desk and upgraded me to a private suite with an incredible view (sunrise is the preferred view) and since i was traveling with my neice and we had reserved two double beds and now a king, she set up the living area with a extrememly comfortable air mattress. The hotel was actually more accomadating then i would have expected giving us additionals that overvalued my mistake. Truly a win-win as our experience was truly enhanced. Obviously I could have argued with the hotel booking but in the end it worked out fabulously. The food was excellent in the restaurant and fairly priced. The service was excellent in all regards throughout our stay. In addition, they were clear at check in if we had any problem 24-7, with breathing or feeling any altitude problems to contact the desk. Several clients in the breakfast area said they had called for oxygen and the staff were quick, and made it so comfortable for them by providing oxygen immediately. Excellent service! i would say the only drawback is it needs a little bit of renervation of carpet and the furniture in the living areas of the suites or it would be a 5 star hotel. All and all a fabulous experience! i definately will be back.
Very comfortable room with an incredible view of Lake Titikaka.
During our stay my wife suffered altitude sickness and oxygen was provided in our room which assisted her greatly.
The only let down was that when we entered our room the beds were incorrectly position (sorted by hotel staff) and when we booked a table in the hotel restaurant at the fron t desk this booking was not referred to the restaurant.
Libertador is a nice hotel with view of lake from almost every room. Property is great to explore but far from town. Rooms are somewhat dated but comfortable. Hotel does not have air and heat is available only after 4 pm. It was not a problem for us during our June stay. Restaraunt staff is attentive and great food. Bar service was slow but reasonably priced.
