A TRUE historic oasis in the desert!!
Reviewed 20 April, 2021
This property is rich in history with ancient art, antique furniture, and rich tapestries at every turn. Surrounded by a wall and simple gate, you may think you missed it. However, once you check in with security, you enter several courtyards surrounded by lush tropical gardens and invigorating pool. Our hosts, Enrique and Alexandria speak fluent English and the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Yes, it is slightly rustic, but any historic property is a labor of love. With the native charm and attentive staff, we never wanted to leave!! Trust us, this is the ONLY hotel in town that you’ll want to stay in!!!
Spectacular old hacienda and grounds, charming owner
Reviewed 4 September, 2020
We visited during the pandemic, so the hotel was operating with a fraction of its usual staff. We received excellent service from the hotel's owner--who tended bar, told us about the place, and was generally delightful. Our dinner and drinks were very good, and we certainly wished we had more than one evening there. The art and furnishings in the common areas deserve substantial time to enjoy, as do the beautiful grounds.
While the rooms are typical of mid-range Peruvian hotels, it would be foolish and missing the point of the place to do anything more than shower and sleep in your room and not enjoy the real attractions the hacienda has to offer.
Historical but mediocre

Beautiful historical building full of ancient art in bad shape, charming atmosphere though. Good bed. Acceptable wifi. Very poor shower. Staff not too friendly neither enthousiast. We asked for a late check out as we had the night bus at 22.00 to Arequipa. First they charged US50, which was exactly the rate at booking.com for one night. After a discussion, it was reduced to 40 dollars in cash. Just one electrical plug in each room. No airco, no safe, no tv and a noisy fridge. Lots of mosquitos and sandflies.
All out of walking distance of city center, bad road and the so called hotel shuttle bus is not operated after dark, which is around 18h.
Food was ok but not great, neither cheap.
No idea where this place obtained four stars, it needs a lot of investing before that!
Tricky to summarize

Hotel Majoro is a historic place, with beautiful old tapestries on the wall, a decent dining room, and a fantastic pool. The gallery features fine Peruvian craftsmanship by a consortium of Quechuan artists. What make this a tricky review to write is that the rooms leave something to be desired. Ours was sparse, cold and hard-edged. The bed bordered on uncomfortable, in contrast to other Peruvian mattresses that were supremely comfortable. This may be one of the nicest places in Nazca, but it needs some attention pretty soon. Nothing bad, but nothing memorable or outstanding.

I loved the feel of this place just a shame we only had one night here after visiting the Nazca lines. Would love to have spent some time by the pool.
Room and shower were fine. The dining room is beautiflly decorated and so is the library.
The only negative was the poolside bar was completly understaffed when our group arrived. Not sure how they roster knowing that more than one group is passing through at the same time and this place is not close to anything else. In the true traveller spirit we all laughed off the very long wait for service the must try Pisco Sour
