Royal Inka Hotel Pisac - Traveler ReviewAccording to the guidebook this place is a real treat for campers, with hot showers, a Olympic size pool (closed) and free wifi (for a fee).
Simply not the case. We arrived, checked in and paid the most we have paid for a camp site since the U.S. Asked about showers and bathrooms and were told the showers are hot 24 hours a day and there are clean bathrooms to use.
Anyone that has traveled in Latin America will know that paper goes in the basket not the toilet, well it would appear that the bathrooms had not been cleaned in months as all 4 stalls in both ladies and mens were overflowing with used TP. They did not clean the bathroom until the next morning when we complained for the second time.
The showers we were told would be fixed, after 3 hours they were still freezing cold. The manager then told us that for $30 US a night (for camping) we were simply not entitled to hot water as the camping costs were so cheap.
Would I recommend this place to any other camper or overlander? A resounding NO.

That's ridiculous. I stayed at the Hotel Pisac Inka, so very similar sounding. It was 35 soles/night. The room was spotless, nicely furnished, the paint was without blemish and I had my own super shiny bathroom with brand new fixures. Even the doorknobs were new and high quality. The most baffling thing was they had LED light fixtures. Those aren't exactly cheap. Two issues though. The WiFi was a little on the slow side. The hot water in the shower was too hot. The first two days that was OK, I would dilute with cold. This morning though, the cold side wasn't working so I had to turn off the hot for a while and then get about 30 seconds of luke warm to hot before it got too hot. It was just this morning though. I don't know what was up.
In short, don't stay at places in guidebooks. They are less than good and more than expensive.

330 USD a night is expensive for Australia. I hope they set the tent up, blew a mattress up, and cooked you dinner for that price.
