Plunge Pool Suite
Key selling points:Two extensive balconies offer brilliant views of the ocean, and as the suite’s name suggests, one balcony features a 24-foot private plunge pool while the other has a dining table for six for al fresco meals.
Standout service: A guest forgot his medicine, which was not locally available, on the bus he’d taken to get to Paracas, so staff contacted the bus station at the next stop (five hours away) and retrieved the medication before noon the next day.
