We booked the top-of-the-range duplex Queen Mary apartment for a group of six adults over the New Year period back in mid-2015, paying a peak-season surcharge. Our expectations were correspondingly high, but were comfortably surpassed. Our host, Bart, stayed in specially to welcome us after our hellish 13-hour overland journey from Mendoza. [Tip: if you don't want to wait six... More

We had a great 3-night stay in the ECCO Duplex 1 in August. The apartment was very clean and we had everything we needed to have our own breakfasts and other meals (though we did experience Valparaiso restaurants too!). Bart was very helpful in guiding us through the various cerros. Lovely views and overall a fantastic stay in Valparaiso.
