Wonderful place, what an experience....
Loved it here, amazing views, excellent food. Peaceful and unspoilt. It is an eco lodge and employs local people, staff very friendly and helpful. We were in a party, comprising of 2 couples, and we were all retired, and did find getting to the hotel a bit of a challenge, with the altitude, but all managed! The weather was cold when we were there, you do need the right clothes, both day and night...lots of layers!! Lovely place if you have a certain level of fitness, (and the right clothes!)with these, you will have an amazing and unforgettable experience, so glad we went.
An amazing experience
We traveled to Peru and Bolivia and had the opportunity to visit La Isla del Sol, a magical place only reachable by boat. One of our trip’s objectives is to travel in a socially responsible way. We chose La Estancia ecolodge because it supports the local economy and offers a true local experience with all the perks that make you feel special. Wow!! We were delighted when we arrived at the top of the Island to a dream’s view. La Estancia who takes care of every detail and in addition to the beauty of the location, the service and the food were the best! The two ladies who run the place are so warm, knowledgeable and caring. The rooms were beautiful, spotless and so comfortable. We were 5, three teens and two adults. It was, without a doubt, one of our trip’s highlights.
Peaceful and beautiful!
This is quite a unique and beautiful place. It sits atop the Isla del Sol, overlooking the lake and the landscape below. Food, service, and accommodations are excellent. The walk from the dock to the lodge is an outing in and of itself, passing ruins, temples, and the local Bolivians, who are beautiful, wonderful people. The staff was excellent. The lodges are comfortable and modern, and the fool was excellent. It's a top notch place, with the perfect combination of luxury and authenticity. I love Bolivia and will go back someday, and when I do, I'll spend time again at Ecolodge La Estancia.
My wife and I visited the Ecolodge in May 2019. We had been coaxed to visit by tour operator and we accepted his recommendation. Just arriving to the Island is a great experience and then you have to hike the trail to reach the lodge that you cannot even see. It is amazing. The views across the lake and the track that takes you along side the terraced gardens being worked by the locals is truly special. It is a tough walk, but worth every step. It was my wife's birthday and our hosts made it even more special with some lovely traditional treats. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you
On top of the island
Best vantage point, but obviously when you are on top of the hill it is a walk (bags get taken by donkey). True eco-lodge, ingenious solar heating, thick mud brick walled cabins, a common room to mingle with others. We had an evening meal and breakfast and were very pleased how they catered for vegetarian and omnivors alike! Pleasant landscape in their garden. Really good views. Great staff. I rate it as an eco-lodge as you don't expect the full service and amenities of a main stream hotel. This is a true comfortable accommodation experience in a beautiful location.
We had an unforgettable stay and learned so much from Celina and her team at the ecolodge
We stayed at La Estancia to learn more about Permaculture and how to run an Eco lodge. This beautiful place is a great example how to run a business in a honestly sustainable way. From the little welcome bookled, to filtered drinking water and biodegradable shampoo: these guys have thought of it all. We want to thank you again for taking so much of your valued time to show us around and answer every question we had. We hope to see you in Europe one day or elsewhere on this beautiful planet.
