Sonesta Hotel El Olivar Rating: 4.0 Pearls
San Isidro, Lima, Peru

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Rooms are large with nice touches like fresh flowers, massive flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks (and many with park views)
  • Great meal options include Peruvian-fusion and Japanese restaurants, and 24-hour room service
  • Sunny rooftop pool with nice views
  • Business center has free coffee and cookies
  • Extra perks include fitness center and beauty salon
  • Free Wi-Fi in public areas

Cons

  • Some room furniture (such as the dressers) are a bit dated
  • Pool patio shows some wear and tear
  • Fee for in-room Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The 134-room Sonesta El Olivar is a high-end choice in the upscale residential neighborhood of San Isidro. Aside from its safe, walkable location, the hotel stands out for its long list of on-site amenities: a fitness center, a salon, a business center with free coffee and cookies, a spacious rooftop pool, two tasty restaurants, and 24-hour room service. Rooms are large, with massive flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, minibars, and fresh flowers (a nice touch), but the beige-heavy decor -- with some dated furniture and sparsely adorned walls -- isn't as luxurious as one may expect from a four-pearl hotel.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the upscale residential neighborhood of San Isidro

The Sonesta Hotel is located in San Isidro, an upscale residential neighborhood next to Miraflores. Like Miraflores, it attracts tourists with its many bars, restaurants, and shops. The hotel is at the northwest corner of Parque El Olivar (a lovely park lined by ancient olive trees), and within walking distance of the golf course and ancient temple ruins.

  • 32-minute drive to J Chavez International Airport
  • 15-minute walk to the Lima Golf Club
  • 15-minute walk to Huaca Huallamarca, ancient temple ruins
  • 8-minute drive to Museo Amano, a museum of pre-Columbian artifacts
  • 12-minute drive to the beach
  • 16-minute drive to Lima's historic district, El Centro
