Was here on a businesstrip in early april 2014. The hotel is ok, with spacious rooms (at least the suites), and a nice bar/outdoor area. The cleanliness of the pool however was not so good(much because of all the birds in the area). Breakfast was ok. Unfortunately for the people in Arica, there was two huge earthquakes the days we...

This hotel has seen better days, many years ago. It occupies huge grounds with all the rooms located on the ground level and spread out around the pool and dining area. We had a pleasant stay here but there is room for improvement, especially relating to the service. Staff are scarce and slow to respond to requests. You cannot make... More

It's comfortable. Has nice bar, good food and friendly staff. Swimming pool is small but clean. It's close to the main street and bars but far from the beach, so I wouldn't recommend it for holidays. It's also overpriced.

We pulled into town looking for a place to stay for the night, and there weren't many options to chose from. We saw this place as we were driving around and it was in a good location: walking distance to downtown and next to a casino, but on it's own large grounds and it had a large parking area. This...

We celebrated christmas eve here with our kids and friends. The hotel is great for kids. It is almost a huge park with playhouse, swings and pool and lots of grassy areas to play on. We stayed here for two nights, just relaxing and celebrating. OK food and a good bar and OK prices. Only downside was the service, the... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was somewhat apprehensive about this hotel. But when you are a guest at a conference you stay where they put you, especially when it is being paid for. All the guest at the conference were here as it was next door to the casino where the conference was held. Enough said, the... More

Hotel is set in attractive grounds with rooms located around the swimming pool. Close to the centre of town. Bedrooms are large with a small outdoor terrace but in need of some updating (and this was in the "New Wing"). We had a small double bed with a rather grubby blanket - when will hotels learn that a duvet/quilt with... More

The room was extremely basic and not particularly clean, the bathroom is old, needs serious upgrading. The beds were of poor quality. Airconditioning is very loud, but in the morning it doesn't matter because the hotel is next to a construction site that's so loud that you can't sleep anyway. I stayed there only one night but it was memorable... More

My family and I visited Arica, Chile over a three day weekend and stayed at the Hotel El Paso. Overall, we had a good time and enjoyed staying at the hotel. The hotel itself is located in a nearby park and has gorgeous landscaping and all sorts of beautiful flowers and trees. The property itself is quite large but a... More
