Hotel Nazca Lines Review

Mixing colonial elegance with all the mod-cons, this once top-end hotel is a Nazca landmark. Formerly the home of Maria Reiche (she lived in room 130), this historic hacienda has long drawn international tourists and adventurers seeking to solve the mysteries of the Lines. Stylish colonial rooms with private terraces and piped-in music deliver a touch of the good life, and the enormous central courtyard with its inviting pool make it hard to drag yourself away to explore the Lines. With nightly planetarium shows (S/20) and lectures about the Lines, you can attempt to solve the mystery without leaving poolside. Delicious meals served on a tiled walkway beside the courtyard are worth the expense, and nonguests can have lunch and use the pool for S/16. The hotel is extremely charming; the staff, perhaps overwhelmed by the tour groups that march nightly through the doors, not so much.
