Our Thoughts!

When we first visited the Casa del Sol Boutique hotel after it’s opening (2 years ago) it was immediately clear that this hotel was not built on a shoestring. Two years on the quality is still the same, and the hotel is still an excellent choice for a good night’s stay in Aguas Calientes. Staff are noticeably helpful and attentive, and the common areas and rooms are comfortable and well decorated. Ask for a river facing room if you can. Complaints about the quality (and speed) of the service at the hotel restaurant are not un-frequent, but usually associated when eating as part of a large group. The advertised price of US$ 420 per night is way too expensive, so make sure you book your vacation package through us and get the hotel for roughly half the published rate.
