We arrived late one night back to Vina del Mar and were able to get a room at this centrally located hotel. Our room had two balconies overlooking the ocean (and a restaurant), so we were able to hear the waves at night. However the traffic is also quite loud around the area, so don't expect peace and quiet. Room... More

The Hotel is modern and in a gorgeous position right in fornt of the Ocean. Rooms are large, quite confortable and clean with splendid balconies. Breakfast is rich and variate. Personnel is polite and willing to help IF THEY UNderstand. The only real problem is in fact that most of the employees do not speak English and as it oftne... More

Good rooms somewhere between the 4 and 5 star. That Said I don't like when a hotel has unique regulations in a bad way. We can early about 11 AM after a very long flight and asked for a room. we were asked to pay 50% extra for early check in. We needed to shower before a meeting and change... More

The hotel is located in a really good location, close to many restaurants and pubs if you like to get out at night. It's a walking distance to the Casino, mall and to the beach (Av. Peru). The staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast really good. If you don't like the ocean sound.. do not choose Ocean View, at... More

The hotel is located at a walking distance of everything you would need.. restaurants, mall, "victorias", etc. The hotel's staff is very kind and they are always ready to help you in anything you need. The hotel's restaurant menu was also excellent, and the breakfast with many options (although the coffee was not the best). The rooms are spacious, and... More

Get a room with a sight of the beach/ocean, listen to the waves at night as you doze, and walk the beach and the area - a charming stroll. Food is first rate at the hotel, but to savor Chile, walk from the hotel to the left-hand corner, cross the street and walk a quarter block to the first street,... More

We went to the bar to meet some friends for drink. We were there for 2 1/2 hours and could get only one drink during that time. Service was terrible. Waitress had no interest in serving anyone. Everyones glasses were empty, our table and many others. Place was not full so I do not know what the delay was. We... More

The hotel is a full service hotel. the Bar named Don Joaquin is a great place for meeting people and enjoying the best Chilean drinks like the Pisco Sour. The bartender will let you taste the drink before pouring it into the glass and ask you is if needs more sugar, pisco, or lemon. My drink was always perfect. In... More
