I have stayed at the Costa del Sol Ramada Jarvis hotel twice now, and as an independent female traveller travelling alone, it is of great comfort to know that it is directly opposite the airport arrivals exit. It was suggested that I could have hung out in the airport over night before my connecting flight to Cusco, but to be honest I was a bit worried about the safety aspect and after a 12 hour flight from Europe; I really wanted a hot shower and a decent bed to sleep in. After running the gauntlet of taxi drivers calling to me “lady – taxi – lady” and wanting to drive me in to Lima, I made it to the elegant reception of the Lima Airport hotel. All the staff were very efficient and helpful and the porters were cheerful and chatty. Whilst my face got redder & redder with the humidity of Lima, the porter was kind enough to set the thermometer in the room to a more manageable level before leaving me to it.
The room was standard, clean, tidy and very pleasant. The view from the window was of the airport car park! But I wasn’t there for the view. Room service was great despite the lateness of the hour. Only “snack” items were available as opposed to the full menu after a certain hour, but it was good grub and just what I needed to fill my tummy.
I didn’t stay long enough to enjoy the delights of the rest of the hotel, the bar, the restaurant or gym, but I slept well, in a comfortable sound proof room. It’s slightly more expensive that I’d normally pay for a night in a hotel, but for the reassurance of safety, comfort and proximity to Lima airport was worth every penny. I will by staying there again in the future.
