It's a good and quiet place to make a stop, a break, after Colchane, the park, or San Pedro de l'Atacama, after the high altitude front of the pacifique with a lot of birds. The hotel is front of the beach, and there is a swimming pool front of the Pacifique. Good place

I gave them a two because of the amazing view and incredible pool. When I came to this place I had checked on the internet to see that the price is only $82 a night. At the desk they quoted me 156 for two nights so I said yes. When it came time to check out the price jumped to... More

Gavina Sens is a simple, but clean comfortable contemporary property located on a peninsula jutting into the ocean. We had an ocean view room facing South which afforded a panoramic view of the bay, beach, surfers and divers. Falling asleep to the surf crashing on the rocks below is very relaxing. I had requested an iron and board be delivered... More

Hotel Gavina is still under construction (mostly finishing work in the lounge), but it is open for business. The hotel boasts an unexpected modernist architecture that is contrasted with more rustic materials, such as the heavy wood tables in the dining room, and the impressive copper wall in the main lobby. The hotel has the perfect location. It sits the... More

We enjoyed long lazy days, sleeping in, listening to the waves crash onto the foundation of the highrise hotel which feels like it is on an island in the middle of the sea. Unless you have a room on the back where traffic is loud. The food was good in the restaurant and staff were helpful and willing to go... More

Spent two uneventful nights here. The hotel definitely has a "tired" feel to it. The appointments and rooms were nothing to brag about. It has a good location, but I am sure there are more pleasant places to rest your head. The bathroom was decidedly second rate. The food was passable--nothing memorable. There was an exterior light shining in my... More

I stayed here on business in July 2012. I am seasoned traveller and this hotel was by far the worst I have stayed in. Refusal to allow us entry to room upon early arrival, dirty bed-linen, unclean bathrooms, poor ventilation. My colleague and I decided to eat in the hotel upon reception's recommendation - big mistake!! Large wine menu but... More
