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. There are also plenty of activities suitable for all ages in Arequipa and beyond, making this a great choice for families.

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
