Costa del Sol Wyndham HotelArequipa, Peru
Formerly the Libertador Hotel, this hotel has been taken over by the Costa del Sol group and renamed.
This gracious hotel was designed in the 1930s and has spacious rooms, and was tastefully redecorated in 2013 in warm colours. The hotel is set in three hectares of grounds with a large swimming pool and has a small farm, resident giant tortoise and swings and climbing frames, making it an ideal base for families and for those who prefer to be in a spacious environment away from the city centre.
It is located in a residential area about 10 blocks from the Plaza de Armas, which makes it quieter than being in the heart of the city, but also requires a taxi for the short 10 minute drive into the centre.
