How to Get There
This is an extraordinarily well run hotel. We stayed for 2 nights, had a well appointed room overlooking Lake Titicaca. The public spaces are comfortable and a good place to meet other guests in this small hotel.
The restaurant is outstanding. The chef is highly creative and the quality of the wait staff is incredible.
The guides, in our case Pavel and Willy, were also terrific. The excursions, which are included, were well run. The boat tour to the islands of reeds was fun as well as the lunch on another island was terrific. Actually, the hotel sent the food and staff---well done.
We stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights and used the Hotel’s excursions to explore the sights around the Lake.
The hotel is perfectly situated on a peninsula with great views from 3 sides of the building. It helps when the weather is great but you get the sunrise sunlight on the right hand side of the building as you face the water and the sun sets on the left hand side with stunning views of the Lake.
However it is the service and the attention to detail that makes this place special. The staff were very helpful in attending to all of our requests. The tour to Tequile Island and the The Uros Floating islands are a must. Both fascinating glimpses into the the ancient cultures of those that live on and around this impressive lake. Again the tour guides (Stephani) was very helpful and knowledgable and educated us on the history and customs of those living on the lake.
The food here was also a standout as we pretty much tried everything on the very extensive menu. Compliments to the chef and both western and Peruvian dishes were delicious as were the salads and soups. The range of wines were also pretty decent. Of course this is all included in the price of the room but I think you definitely get what you pay for here.
A top tier Hotel/Resort with excellent facilities and activities for guest and an excellent range of food and drink to be consumed.
You won’t be disappointed.
Hotel Titilaca was our holiday within our holiday – four days and nights to relax and reenergise after our tour of Peru. We loved this hotel despite a couple of niggles.
This was the perfect spot with great service and enthusiastic staff, nothing seemed too much trouble.
Not that we had that much rest. Included in the room price are a large choice of private tours and activities - we took tours to the Uros Islands, Taquille Island and to Molloco and Aramu Muru. As well as an early morning excursion to the local commercial market (livestock auction) and rowing through the reeds. Lake Titicaca and the surrounding areas are beautiful and rich in culture and history.
The tour groups were small and the guides excellent.
We stayed in a corner room that did not quite live up to expectations, while the room and bathroom were very comfortable, the room was a bit tired - the floor (stains) especially needed attention and promised dawn & sunset views did not quite eventuate (dawn was not visible). Given the premium for these rooms we expected to get what was promised (“This room offers views of both sunrise and sunset”).
The food, while generally good, quality was variable – some dishes very good, others lacking – and for a four-night stay the menu lacked variety (there was a fixed menu and no daily specials to provide variety). Breakfast on the other hand was fantastic.
The staff and management are very alert and responsive to any comments and made our stay very pleasant.
We would definitely stay here again but would not take a Corner Suite. Three nights would be a perfect stay (it would not be worth staying for only one night, as you would not be able to take advantage of the best excursions).
As indicated by many the location, interior, staff and scenery are amazing. The rooms are small but very comfortable and views are incredible. Compared to other places we stayed in Peru the food itself is average. Unfortunately you insisted to depart for the small and quit airport way to early so we have to wait for hours. Nevertheless a great experience and many thanks for excellent hospitality.
Stayed for three nights at the end of a trip through Chile and Bolivia, ending at Lake Titicaca. Overall we had a good stay, but not to the same standard of service as the other Relais and Chateaux properties in Valparaíso and San Pedro de Atacama.
The hotel looks superb, has a strong sense of design and the rooms (dawn side of the building) including an enormous bed were excellent and beautifully decorated. Perhaps that is part of the problem the hotel tries too hard to be hip, but sometimes misses out on a few basics (see suggestions below).
The food is excellent and the all in concept (food, drink, and activities) is appreciated. the staff are welcoming and constantly checking if there is anything you need. There were lots of examples of them going the extra mile to deliver a good level of service - cleaning muddy walking boots, little gift in your room, scarfs to borrow for early morning starts, blankets in the boat trips, etc.
During our stay we did the ‘local stroll’ with Willy, which, in fact, was a serious and enjoyable hike in the local area, the boat trip into the nearby reed beds (peaceful, calm and lots of birdlife) with Stefani and the half day birdwatching, which was interesting even if we are not especially bird people as you got to see more of the local area and some good birdlife.
So what could still be improved:
1. Put bluetooth speakers in every room and make sure they work. We asked on arrival if they had a solution as the room speakers only had the old iPhone connector. After 24 hours they were able to find us a blue tooth speaker, which was nice, ...even if it didn’t actually sync with our phones.
2. Encourage guests to book a time for dinner, but not a specific table. We were invited to choose a table on both the second and third day, but on the first occasion we were asked twice to change table, while on the last night we were moved three times only to end back at the table we originally requested. Fixing a reservation time only would avoid such annoyances. Of greater concern, it showed poor communication within the team on what was reserved or not.
3. Ask the kitchen staff to stop shouting and to keep the doors to kitchen shut. The noise and sense of rush was a particular pain if seated at the two tables by each of the doors. More generally, the restaurant appears crowded. There are probably two tables too many to sit people with sufficient privacy and calm.
Finally, take a look at the playlists, for example same music three mornings running at breakfast, while evening playlist jumping between 50s, 70s and electronic. It didn’t sound great or to have a logical theme for the whole evening.
4. Get the staff explaining the activities to show more passion and enthusiasm for the great activities you offer and get them to tailor them to the interests of the guests; they were too glib, jokey and even gave the impression of dissuading us from some activities (such as the longer half day hike, or the bike ride).
They just reeled through their standard offering.
The guides on the other hand we good, well informed and did a good job.
5. Do more to create a sense of calm and relaxation around the common spaces and particularly in the restaurant. At times the place was too hectic. Ideally this could extend to better sound insulation in between rooms and the corridors, which you would normally expect in a property of this category.
Despite these areas for improvement, this is a good hotel, providing great food and an excellent all in concept.
The staff are welcoming and strongly service oriented (with perhaps the exception of the people organising the activities). They have a range of varied activities and work with lots of local staff and local produce in the kitchen, so this is somewhere to seriously consider around the lake if your budget can stretch that far.
