We stayed here for one night. The hotel is isolated in the canyon. Room were comfortable but need a renovation. Dinner and breakfast were good but without varieties. Choose a room not in the ground floor.

About
Description
El Refugio is located in the impressive Colca Valley. It is a rustic style hotel with a view of the river and the mountains. It has a pool fed by a natural spring of thermal water nestled in a majestic More landscape. You can do several activities, like fishing, walking around our facilities to contemplate the surrounding natural waterfalls, as well as visiting the picturesque village of Chivay, just 5 minutes by car. In a beautiful setting overlooking the valley with a small central fireplace, our restaurant offers Andean specialties, where no matter your taste, eating will always be a pleasure. We also invite you to explore our bar with an extensive menu of innovative cocktails. Single or twin rooms have two double beds dressed in soft quilts for added comfort. Each of them has a small terrace or balcony, where you can admire a splendid view; our rooms have been built with rustic-style walls with delicate green tones, parquet floors and a spacious bathroom with exquisite amenities.
