The contemporary and stylish Hotel Libertador Arequipa is located in Selva Alegre Park, one of the greener areas of the city of Arequipa in Southern Peru. Recently refurbished, this appealing property serves as a great base for discovering the city and its surroundings, with many popular attractions within walking distance.
There are a total of 88 rooms, with several different categories to choose from, ranging from the standard Superior Room to the Libertador Suite which overlooks the hotel’s main entrance. All rooms are decorated in a sophisticated colonial style, featuring earthy tones and wooden furnishings to create a rustic, authentic feel. They come with amenities such as bathrobes and slippers, a minibar and an LCD TV, with complimentary drinking water provided.
The hotel’s restaurant, Los Robles, has an excellent reputation and is popular with visitors and locals alike. It offers sumptuous buffet breakfasts, as well as lunches and dinners featuring a broad range of Peruvian and international dishes. The restaurant is very eco-friendly and focuses on being as sustainable as possible, with staff growing much of the food themselves. There’s also a bar serving a wide variety of drinks, from local specialties to fresh juice cocktails and more.
The open-air pool is located within the hotel’s well manicured gardens, offering stunning mountain views along with a relaxing jacuzzi. There’s also a fully equipped gym and sauna, and massage treaments are available too. Youngsters will enjoy making use of the several outdoor play areas and will no doubt love getting to know the hotel’s two long-term animal residents; a delightful alpaca and a tortoise from the Galapagos Islands that’s over a century old.
There's plenty to see and do in and around Arequipa. Main attractions include the evocative Convento de Santa Catalina, the Sabandia Mill, and the Plaza de Armas. Excursions further afield to the Colca Canyon can be arranged, along with other cultural or adventurous pursuits.
Children are welcome, and although there are no designated child activities or babysitting services, the hotel has several outdoor areas where children are free to play and enjoy themselves.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
