I loved the location, a bit away from the center. We had a rental car and there was an enclosed parking spot for us. The owner and staff were wonderful, kind and very helpful. The pool was great with plenty of shady spots for the adults to sit and watch them play. Breakfast was healthy and tasty. Our room had ample space and the beds were very comfortable.

Nice staff but photos aren’t representative.
Staff was very friendly but the room we checked in to was different from what I saw online/what I booked. They did eventually switch our room once someone checked out. The photos are somewhat misleading—there is no restaurant (although breakfast is included). We were under the impression that there was a restaurant on site to get other meals. Also mentions a poolside bar which there isn’t either.

Tuzco Lodge is in a great location in Puerto Lopez. It's only a 10 min walk away from the beach. So you're near all the action but not the noise.

Nice hotel with a great staff
Staff is excellent. Front Desk will book any tours or transportation that you would need. Breakfast was fresh and served daily. Rooms clean and priced well. Minimal furnishings. Nice swimming pool. Hot water was not always available. The location of lodge is at the end of the road....down a muddy unpaved road.

Amazingly clean rooms, charming facilities, and super friendly staff made our short stay here a pleasure. It's only a 5 minute walk from the main street and 10 minutes to the beach.

Buen sitio..!!
Las fotos son generosas. El sitio esta bien, pero es sencillo. Caro para lo que es. (en mi caso 100 dólares por hab.) Necesita mantenimiento, las habitaciones tienen muchas manchas en las paredes, se ve sucio. Las sabanas, necesitan ser renovadas. Hay mucha bulla en la noche. El up de todo, es la gente. Gente sumamente amable y presta a ayudar!! con ciertos cambios menores, podría ser un magnifico sitio.
