Fodor's Expert Review Sonesta Posada del Inca Yucay

Plaza Manco II 123, Yucay, Cusco, Peru

This 300-year-old former monastery offers modern amenities while retaining its charm in such details as tile floors, wood ceilings, hand-carved headboards, and balconies that overlook the gardens or the terraced hillsides. The cobblestone walkways are the perfect complement to the well-preserved colonial-era church on the grounds. A few rooms are accessible to people with disabilities, a rarity in this area, but they must be reserved in advance. The restaurant has excellent regional fare and a popular Sunday lunch buffet.
