Guest Reviews


Guest from Holland

This absolutely the best place to stay in Caraz. A small town with a nice Plaza and great for outdoor activities. The lodge has such a great local atmosphere. Beautiful gardens with views of the mountains where you can find a spot to relax after an active day.


Gurst from Denmark

The staff was very helpsome and the tour guide, Luis, who has his office in the lodge, was friendly and helped me out with what to see and do in the area. Thumbs up! Also, the view from the terrace is SO beautiful and a perfect spot for reading.


Guest from Canada

The place is amazing, one of my best stays! I had a good deal with booking.com and we were in low season so the price was fair enough. one of the employees working on the night shift was incredibly helpful.


Guest from Germany

The house is very clean and quiet in front of a small green Plaza. Our room was spacious with nice interior, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom new. Breakfast was delicious with various options. Also, you can enjoy the nice garden with the barbecue area. Like a small Oasis!
