Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I visited the Ecolodge in May 2019. We had been coaxed to visit by tour operator and we accepted his recommendation. Just arriving to the Island is a great experience and then you have to hike the trail to reach the lodge that you cannot even see. It is amazing. The views across the lake and the track that takes you along side the terraced gardens being worked by the locals is truly special. It is a tough walk, but worth every step. It was my wife's birthday and our hosts made it even more special with some lovely traditional treats. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
Thank you

Loved our stay at the very clever eco lodge La Estancia. The room was extremely clean. The resourcefulness used to minimize the impact on the environment was amazing. The food is served cantina style at a fix hour was delicious. The wifi however is close to non existent and when available very spotty but ... that was a small downside.

We traveled to Peru and Bolivia and had the opportunity to visit La Isla del Sol, a magical place only reachable by boat. One of our trip’s objectives is to travel in a socially responsible way. We chose La Estancia ecolodge because it supports the local economy and offers a true local experience with all the perks that make you feel special. Wow!! We were delighted when we arrived at the top of the Island to a dream’s view. La Estancia who takes care of every detail and in addition to the beauty of the location, the service and the food were the best! The two ladies who run the place are so warm, knowledgeable and caring. The rooms were beautiful, spotless and so comfortable. We were 5, three teens and two adults. It was, without a doubt, one of our trip’s highlights.

We came to this eco lodge in the afternoon after a lunch in the isla del sol near the the lake. The lodge is situated in a beautiful location. But it is at a height. From the lake we have to climb the whole way. It was too tedious for us as we are from coastal plane and felt breathlessness. But after reaching the lodge we forgot everything and after rest for a while we became energized to go to the top most location in this island to enjoy the sunset. Next morning we enjoyed the sunrise also. It was so beautiful. We had a nice breakfast there. All are locally made. Everyone were so polite and helpful though they can’t speak to us (they were Spanish speaking) as we are English speaking. They guided us a lot. If we can understand Spanish we could chat with them.

Shortly after the booking the Ecolodge already contacted us and asked us how we get to the island and if we need a transport. They would have also get our luggage from the port to the Ecolodge because it takes around 30' by foot.

We were welcomed with coffee, tea and a fresh juice!! Our lodge was beautiful and very clean. Also the dinner and breakfast was amazing - they made something special for us because we're vegan.

10/10 - we would totally come back!

Incredible location with stunning views over the Lake. All the staff were fantastic, but especially the manager who was really warm and considerate when the altitude got a little too much. An absolute must for anyone visiting Lake Titicaca

Loved it here, amazing views, excellent food. Peaceful and unspoilt. It is an eco lodge and employs local people, staff very friendly and helpful. We were in a party, comprising of 2 couples, and we were all retired, and did find getting to the hotel a bit of a challenge, with the altitude, but all managed! The weather was cold when we were there, you do need the right clothes, both day and night...lots of layers!! Lovely place if you have a certain level of fitness, (and the right clothes!)with these, you will have an amazing and unforgettable experience, so glad we went.

This is quite a unique and beautiful place. It sits atop the Isla del Sol, overlooking the lake and the landscape below. Food, service, and accommodations are excellent. The walk from the dock to the lodge is an outing in and of itself, passing ruins, temples, and the local Bolivians, who are beautiful, wonderful people. The staff was excellent. The lodges are comfortable and modern, and the fool was excellent. It's a top notch place, with the perfect combination of luxury and authenticity. I love Bolivia and will go back someday, and when I do, I'll spend time again at Ecolodge La Estancia.

Lovely accommodation, friendly staff and food was delicious and included in our booking. Unfortunately very expensive compared to other accommodations in Bolivia and with less standards than other accommodations (e.g. no heater / Wi-Fi in rooms).
Also to get there is VERY exhausting. You have to climb from the sea level at 3600m to 4000m and then walk through the whole village. There are no signs from the lodge showing you the way, you should use Google maps.
