Hotel Paracas, a Luxury Collection Resort Review

From the moment we walked through the doors of the impressive foyer at Hotel Paracas and out to the beach we loved this hotel. After seeing the room, we went straight back to reception and extended our stay to 2 nights! If that is not a heartfelt recommendation then … we are not sure what is.

The Hotel Paracas is luxury personified – from the imposing lobby with water features, huge ceilinged restaurants and very ample sized beach villas, and several amazingly landscaped pools; this is a hotel that is truly luxury. Perhaps it was because 5 days after arriving in Peru (from Australia) we were still suffering the effects of jet lag with a 2 year old, and we needed pampering.

This place spoiled us, and more! There is a gorgeous pool, that reflects the bar and restaurants, for adults. For kids and families another lovely pool located near the playground, and gives out various activities, like kayaks, sailing boats, volleyballs. There is a small heated kids pool and they also provide kids floaties for your enjoyment.

we visited in winter, so the small heated pool (and the complimentary floaties) were a win!

In addition they have a well-equipped kids club, and a playground. In short, they have everything you would expect at a 5 start resort catering to families. We don’t normally stay in this style of hotel, so for us everything was perfect… and more. However, we overheard an American family staying with kids complaining about lack of towels at the pool, at the speed of service at the restaurant and other items. I think it’s best to say there was still a Peruvian feel to the place, despite the gorgeous setting.

the private jetty offered a wonderful place to watch sunset

In the evenings we wandered along the beach, enjoying the spectacular sunset, and the kids ran along the private jetty with fantastic views of the picturesque Paracas harbour … for those less active there is a spectacular sunset bar on the end of the jetty to get unparalleled views. Should you wish to look for a super safe, and quick trip to the Ballestas Islands they also offer speedboat trips (extra to room rate) to the sights out there.

Kids Club at the Hotel Paracas

The rooms are also special, with glass separating the room from the bathroom, so if you choose to, you have a direct view into the bathroom, especially the shower. There is a deep luxurious bath and the bathroom is quite large. The beds (we had two queen size beds in a double room) were large, soft and encouraged sleep.

Two days here and finally our body clocks were adjusted!
