A tried and tested list of excellent hotels on Peru’s Southern Coast. There are always lots of wonderful hotels in any place, and we don’t want to limit from exploring according to your budget and tastes. These are a few hotels we have either stayed in, or had friends stay in over the years. These are what we consider the Best Family Friendly hotels in the Southern Coast region of Peru.
From the moment we walked through the doors of the impressive foyer and out to the beach we loved this hotel; certainly it is a 5 star hotel, but it was the luxurious break that we needed after a long trip from Australia. With heated pools, a kids club, white beach and its own jetty, we were hooked! Read the full review of the Hotel Paracas, A luxury collection resort.
We have had friends stay here – there is an old fashioned courtyard and a great atmosphere. From outside the red color, and arches are attractive and this kind of place feels typically Peruvian. It is also is one of the few places in Huacachina that has a pool (an outdoor, unheated one). That’s enough to put this place on our list! Plus, its location right on the Oasis of Huacachina makes it pretty special!
This is Peru’s first hotel in a Vineyard. Though purpose built, its wonderfully atmospheric with views of the vines all around. The hotel has been carefully and thoughtfully built, as to evoke an old world feeling. This place has loads of activities for children including bike riding, a trampoline and outdoor pool. (Though the truth be told, they had the most fun playing in the fountain at the front). For the adults, wine making tours are a win!
This elegant hotel is a destination in its own right; and could be included in your South Coast foray or perhaps as a weekend getaway from Lima. Hacienda San Jose had one of the best playgrounds in all of Peru (that we saw), a Musica Criolla dance show, big gardens to play in and tours of the historical site for the adults. And… if all that was not enough they also had a fantastic pool which would be wonderful for the blue skies and warmth of the Peruvian coastal Summer (December – February.)

Nazca (and of course the famous Nazca lines!) are another 3 hours south of Ica, and we didn’t visit during this particular trip!
