Libertador Hotel Isla Esteves Review
The Libertador, a gleaming white, futuristic-looking, low-rise hotel, which functions more like a resort, is 5 km (3 miles) from Puno. The Libertador chain has spent tons of money to refurbish this classic property, even though it was already one of the area's most luxurious lodgings. It's on Isla Esteves, an island in Lake Titicaca, but which is connected to the mainland by a causeway. Rooms and bathrooms are all comfortable, large, clean, and modern, with stunning views of the lake. While taxis are the only way to get into town, after a long day if you're too beat to head into town, you're in luck because there's an upscale international restaurant, Los Uros, a coffee shop, and cozy bar that has beautiful night views, good pisco sours, and a fireplace.
