Historical Traveller Reviews of Casa Andina Valle Sagrado Hotel
A gem of a place but terrible servicefrom ShropshireSkiers
My husband was ill in bed one day and our tour guide had asked for medication to be delivered to him - it was delivered to someone else!
Take an eye mask, the wndows are large and curtains cream with no black-out linings.
A Wonderful Experiencfrom AndeanTraveller
The rooms are clean, spacious and contain all the usual amenities.
We were there on my birthday and we both booked massages in the resorts spas. I was very impressed with the spa facility. It's very tranquil and pleasing. Our massages were top rate and I felt great afterwards.
The staff was courteous, knowledgeable and prompt.
Our driver from the airport was attentive, friendly. We stopped along the way to the motel to take several pictures.
The staff arranged for a shaman to conduct a ceremony for us. Both of us were very pleased with the ceremony.
I have visited Urubamba and Cusco 5 times in the last 5 years and love both cities. I highly recommend this resort.
We had absolutely no complaints about it. We only wished they had a rate that included meals and rooms, maybe they do, but we didn't find it.
Since this is a resort, do expect to pay a little more for meals than you would in the smaller restaurants.
The resort is close to the town and if you desire somewhat less expensive meals, taxis into town are inexpensive. The resort has the menus of many of the smaller restaurants.
What a find!from care2go
the views were awesome, the rooms rustic but very comfortable and the
hospitality impeccable. After a day of hiking in the Sacred Valley, what a welcome reprieve! This was a great choice and I only wish I had another day here.
Lovely Locationfrom RhondaWhurl
adequate handicap accessfrom Pat_the_wise
Casa Andina provided us with a room relatively close to Reception. There were good ramps for pushing my walker, and a great grab-bar in the bath.
Otherwise, the hotel was lovely, my husband really liked the whitewashed interiors, clean and relaxing. Great buffet breakfast.
The landscaping deserves a day trip itself.
I apologized for guests who found our tour group bothersome, but we had a great although fleeting visit to Casa Andina.
nice hotelfrom TAHOEAL
The buffet breakfast was great and we had good food for dinner.
The grounds are beautiful and enjoyable to walk around. The hotel also has 2 pet Alpacas that are fun to feed .
The only complaint I have about this hotel is that is is used by many, many, many tour buses. We were enjoying the gardens, when about 7 different tour buses drive up. Dinner is impossible to enjoy because the groups pour in and overtake the resturant all at once. There is no peace and quiet here because of the hectic activity. The lobby was full at 6am and full again at 5pm, with buses coming all day and during the night.
If you are looking for a quiet place, this is not it. Its strictly a tourist type hotel, which is ok if thats what you want. We would not stay here again because we like to travel independently.

Be Cautiousfrom HaFinkne
We are truly sorry for the inconveniences we may have caused you and for the poor impressions you got from our hotel during your stay on 2007.
There is no question that your perception of our service did not meet the very high standards our guests have come to expect and should continue to demand.
Several improvements have been made since your stay. For instance, we have recently started working with a different taxi company that works with a vast number of new units to attend our guests on time.
Please, rest assured that several other improvements have been made in order to fulfill the standards we have placed for all of our hotels.
We really hope to get the opportunity to serve you properly and offer you the real Casa Andina experience.
Casa Andina Team.
Gorgeous Night Skiesfrom meteorcollector
It can be a bit of a hard climb up the mountain to your room if you are suffering from shortness of breath (I was having some problems with the altitude), and do look out for some of the steps - the night lighting on the walks could definitely be improved ... so be careful on those steps.
Despite this, it was the most beautiful setting for a hotel on my 4-week trip through South America. Also since it's in a very little town with almost no outside night activities, it has really great night skies - NO light pollution. Sit out on your balcony and enjoy it. Many of "us city dwellers" haven't seen a real night sky.
It's a great site if you can do without all the night-life of a normal city location.
It was a dream!from Eliffio
I was there in my honey moon and it was a great time. The service was excellent. The view of the valley, the mountains, the gardens, everything was great.
The service is so personal that makes you feel as the center of the world.
The hotel has an excellent location, there are many great places to visit so close to it. If you like to walk, the views are excellent and you have many distractions.
I will definitely return. It was a magical experience.
Top Local Tips for Urubamba
Middle of nowhere Nice hotel with a great view, but nowhere to go. If you are not going on a tour to Machu Picchu, stay in a hotel in Cusco. Even if you are going to Machu Picchu, maybe it is better you stay in Cusco. All the restaurant items at this hotel very high, especially the wine, which was local and was just too much!
Ollayantambo Make sure you go to these ruins before getting on the train to Machu Picchu. It is definitely worth the climb. Interesting temple/sun outcroppings and good view. Also good exercise.
Preparing for Machu Pichu When visiting Machu Pichu (10,000 ft), altitude sickness can be a real issue and vacation spoiler ... especially if you're use to living a much lower altitudes. Our tour group did it right by first visiting the Sacred Valley (8,500 ft), and giving us a chance to relax and adjust slowly to the higher altitude. Unless you're a well conditioned athlete or teenager, I can't imagine trying to immediately launch into the rigors of exploring the heights of Machu Pichu. Even then, taking it slow and easy is the best way to enjoy Machu Pichu and ensure feeling well doing it. You can also check with your doctor before going. He/she can prescribe medications to prevent and/or treat altitude sickness. Personally, I chose to take a homepathic remedy called, "Breathe Easy," before and during the trip. Although I could feel some effects of the altitude, I didn't get sick and didn't have to curtail my adventures.
