My husband and I stayed at this eco-lodge and thought it was nice. We only stayed one night. It was very open to the elements. The food was great and very tasty. I really like how they have a bar with fruit that you are welcome to at any time. It was storming the night we stayed and so we lost power for the night and morning. We visited the hot springs and they were kind enough to offer a ride and even hold our things. Overall, a very nice choice for a stay in Santa Teresa!

We did the Jungle Adventure 3 days, 2 nights at Eco Quechua and had an amazing time. Truly loved hiking the trails and all the amenities. We learned so much about Inca history, culture, flora, and life. Our hard working guide Ki ke was superb and the staff at the lodge very nice. We upgraded to the room at the top which was quite the nature experience. Loved the sound of the river and even got used to the cicadas. I felt absolutely pampered even though this was not one of the super expensive places--the rooms were rustic, but well appointed. Our guide Peter at Machu Picchu was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food and coffee were delicious. Highly recommend Eco Quechua!

Room Tip: Rooms at the bottom are probably quieter.

Eco Quechua Lodge was a great find for us! Our guide, Enrique, picked us up from our hotel in Cusco and brought us on an amazing adventure through the Scared Valley, the Lodge, parts of the Inca Trail, and onto Machu Picchu. The lodge itself is located right on the outskirts of Santa Teresa. We were skeptical at first because we were given an open-air-concept room, but we absolutely loved it … especially with the sounds of the river right outside our room. BTW, they also have traditional enclosed rooms as well. Anyways, Enrique – who seems to know everyone! – took us hiking through the countryside via parts of the Trail. During our hike, he constantly noted various plants, wildlife, and Inca ruins unique to the area. Enrique, who was raised in the area, was a wealth of information … and spoke great English. We loved the coffee farm tour where we were able to gather our own beans, shelled them, roast them, and then make coffee with them … all traditional by hand and over an open fire. The hike also brought us to an amazing overlook of the valley that contains Machu Picchu. Here we had an awesome Andes trout lunch hand-cooked for us! On the last day, we took the HydroTrain to Aquas Caliente and then the bus to Machu Picchu where we were given a tour with a private guide. We had no hiccups or problems with any part of this tour. We made a great new friend with our tour guide Enrique and hated to say goodbye. He is very spiritually and knowledgably in the lore of the Inca ways … and did we mention he seems to know everyone! One review comments about the drive not being for the faint of heart; which is true. The last part of the drive into Santa Teresa is on a narrow dirt road; but hey, that was part of the adventure. Also, the service was friendly and the rooms simple and clean. They included mosquito nets over all the beds.

I discovered this amazing place with my boyfriend and we spent a really good time. We tried local coffee with the owner, so helpful person. The hotel is only 15mn to hydro electrica, 3 hours to Machu Picchu. I highly recommend this place

Very James Bond luxury tree-house sort of affair - but since the British Secret Service weren't covering my budget, this place seemed pretty affordable for what we were getting so close to Machu Picchu. What really made our stay was the manager Yony (or perhaps Jony). She was a magnificent host and went to so much effort to ensure we were very happy and comfortable. Thank you Yony. The drive there isn't for the faint hearted, so unless you are a confident driver - best to take a minibus or taxi.
Nonetheless there is car parking at the place, and we drove 30 minutes to the train terminal in the morning. Local picked coffee and tea is free flowing in the restaurant at all times.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located in the high jungle, it offers a lovely and tranquil getaway. Like a jungle lodge in the Amazon, some windows are open to nature so that you feel like you're part of it all (beds have mosquito netting). There's just something about this place that makes my stress melt away as soon as I arrive. Let me stretch out in a hammock with a good book and one of their awesome pisco sours and I can spends days at a time here, forgetting the outside world even exists. The entire lodge uses natural materials, including wood, rock, and bamboo, and its newest rooms feature private bathrooms. Ever dreamed of living in a grown-up's treehouse? This is that dream come true. The owners and staff couldn't be friendlier and are genuinely interested in ensuring that you have everything you need and are having the best time possible. Make your reservation includes dinner as these are bound to be some of the tastiest that you will have in Peru-lunch can also be added and breakfast is always included. Massages can be booked with advance notice and an outdoor Jacuzzi is currently in the works. The nearby Colcamayo hot springs are actually much nicer as well as hotter than those in Aguas Calientes, the town right below Machu Picchu, despite it being named after the springs. You are much better off getting your fill of the soothing waters here. Other outings that can be arranged through the lodge are zip-lining, a tour of a coffee plantation, and a hike to Llactapata, an Inca site from which you may catch a glimpse of Machu Picchu. If you're a coffee lover, the coffee plantation tour is highly recommended, mostly so that you can buy one of the world's best coffees, organic and grown here in the high jungle. To get here does require a bit of planning but don't let that keep you away. If it was any easier, there would be hordes and then you wouldn't want to go! Basically, you can either take the train or a bus. To take the train, you will need to get a ticket first to Aguas Calientes and from there to Hidroelectrica. At this point, you cannot buy tickets for the second leg until you get to Aguas Calientes so, if you are coming direct from Cusco or the Sacred Valley (recommended) be prepared to get off and have a cup of coffee until your next train leaves. From Ollantaytambo, the trip to Aguas Calientes takes about 1.5 hours and from Aguas to Hidroelectrica, about 30 minutes. The downside to taking the train is that it can be expensive and there are only a few trains per day between Aguas Calientes and Hidroelectrica. For this reason, you can't just go from the lodge to Machu Picchu and back in one day. On the other hand, if you're up for a hike, it's about a two-hour walk from Hidroelectrica to Aguas Calientes and it's a flat, easy trip. Taking the bus from Cusco is infinitely cheaper but will require a bit more investment in time. You will take the bus to Quillabamba but get off at Santa Maria. From there, you can get a shared car to Hidroelectrica and get off at the EcoQuechua Lodge. The entire trip will take between six and seven hours. Spend a couple of nights at the lodge, walk to Aguas Calientes, spend a night there, and then visit Machu Picchu first thing the next morning. You can then do the trip in reverse or take the train back. ... more   less
