Rooms were good size and quiet at the back of the hotel. Good was good, wine selection good. No lift. Front of house staff do not speak English and it was difficult to convey what we needed... Or fault too for not speaking Spanish of course. Convenient for the motorway and a couple of wineries...Miguel Torres was particularly fine with... More

No elevator, room was clean but ventilation and shower not working, no bin in room, no power outlets easily accessible, staff did not acknowledge us. On a positive side the breakfast buffet had a good variety. Shame I was not even approached to ask if I wanted coffee.

We were down in Curicó for birding there and points south. Had seen many mixed reviews of hotels in area but this was a little oasis of calm. Seems to be more for business folks than vacationers but we enjoyed it. The restaurant was very good for dinner too with a lovely wine selection. WiFi did not work in my... More

Only stayed here for one evening, but was impressed by all of this Hotel, spotlessly clean rooms, very comfy bed, and very polite and friendly staff made this an enjoyable stay. The hotel is just off the main highway.

Located on the highway, very convenient if that is what you want - you need to drive to go anywhere. Rooms are clean and comfortable but with agreeing furniture. Free wi-fi throughout hotel but I had problems in some areas of my room. Book 'odd numbered' rooms - they face the courtyard and not the highway which could be noisy.... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times on our way north on Ruta 5. Quality of lodging has remained consistently good over the years. There are some signs of age though, some wear in the furniture and slight mould on the shower doors. We always stay at the hotel itself, rather than at the cabins, also located within the... More

Must be my fifth stay here. Rooms are spacious, clean and efficient. Beds are comfortable, wi-fi works great. grounds are attarctive. Restaurant is what I would expect in Santiago, it is truly a 5 star restaurant. Service and food is outstanding! Try the chicken raviolis, you will be very surprised!

close to motorway - bungalows or regular rooms, at your choice - bungalows are very nice and isolated from main building, placed in a circle around a small pool and surrounded by a mini jungle - during spring time, many bird species will visit your window - restaurant offers good food variety and wine list covers all tastes - price...

Stayed here for a week while working in Chile. The hotel is right on Ruta 5, so get a room facing away from the road or you'll get an earful of traffic all night. The rooms are pretty standard, bed was comfortable, but the place is showing its age. Clear mold/water damage on the walls. The cleaning lady took the... More

Villa El Descanso is a lovely business hotel. Staff tells me that they usually don't have guests that are tourists. It is located on the service road of Rt 5, but is relatively quiet. The staff was friendly and efficient. Breakfast Buffet hours were long and choices were excellent. Room was very comfortable and included a bar type refrigerator. Curico... More
