Costa del Sol Wyndham – Arequipa
Costa del Sol Wyndham – Arequipa
Costa del Sol Wyndham Arequipa is 15 minutes’ walk away from many of Arequipa’s key sights. Surrounded by extensive gardens just across from the stunning Selva Alegre Park, the area is peaceful. Although aiming for the corporate market, the hotel is ideal for families, with a pool and play area, while the spa is a great place for parents to relax.
Costa del Sol Wyndham Arequipa (this hotel was formerly the Libertador) is one of Arequipa’s finest offerings. The colonial-style building dates back to the 1940s. The outside has been painted in a dusky pink tone, while the inside has the feel of colonial elegance and charm.
The reception area and lobby are an indication of the grand interior with high-ceilings, elegant wooden furniture and corridors leading to other areas. The spacious lounge, decorated in soft, pale blue and grey tones has plenty of comfy sofas, the high ceilings and chandeliers exuding classic elegance, a crackling fire adds to the ambience. Dining is a formal affair, yet not stuffy. A buffet breakfast is available from 5.30 am, useful for an early start, while the Paprika restaurant serves à la carte meals from midday to 11 pm, moving poolside in the afternoons. Room service can be ordered at any time.
Perhaps one of the more interesting quirks of the property is the resident wildlife found in the beautiful gardens: an ancient Galapagos tortoise called Juanita and a couple of alpacas to mow the grass.
Times to Go
The best time to visit Peru’s second city would be during the dry winter months of May to September. Temperatures and mild and days are sunny making it perfect for sightseeing and exploring the area. The peak tourist season, when it does get rather busy is July and August – if you prefer it less busy, you may be best to avoid those months.
