Most of the reviews seem to be critical of its location, for me it was the perfect location because it is close to the centre of town and NOT on the beach. The walk to the beach took around 30 minutes along the central reservation of a road but a very pleasant one. The staff struggled at times to speak... More

This hotel is one of the best in La Serena... but since it's opening in the early 90's, I do not think it has been remodeled and it is starting to show. Now with that said, my room was very specious and the bed was very comfortable. I was disappointed that the room's radiators did not work and it was... More

La Serena is a beach city, but if you are brazilian certainly it won't be a beach you would you like to spend your vacations. But is a good city to stay one night if you are going to Atacama's desert comming from Santiago. You should consider make your pit stop here at Hotel Costa Real, because most part of... More

I come to La Serena about 2 or 3 times per year. This is my first time at Costa Real, I was pleasantly surprised. Nice pool area outside, secure underground parking, 10 minute walk to both malls and many restaurants. Rooms are spaceous and clean. The WiFi worked great 2 of 3 days but always worked from the lobby. Good... More

We stayed here in November 2011. It took the staff a while to get us into our room, which was average by all acounts - medium-sized, not particularly enticing as far as furniture etc. go, but clean and decently comfortable still. The hotel is well located to explore La Serena - the city's central square is within walking distance, as... More

We really enjoyed staying at the Costa Real. The staff were very helpful in all areas. Our room was facing the street but we didn't find this a problem - mainly because we are accustom to traffic noise!! The restaurant was lovely and breakfast was ok. For us Aussies we do like better cereals than are on offer in Chilean... More

The hotel was immaculate. Rooms may be a little tired by US standards but still acceptable. We had a king bed, and all rooms have a modern flat-panel TV. No in-room coffee, no clock radio. They did have a mini fridge (mini bar). I needed to have a shirt ironed. Although they do not have irons/ironing boards, I was able... More

I was not impressed by my latest stay at the Costa Real (last time was 6 years ago). Despite asking for a quiet room I was put in a very noisy one overlooking the main road junction at the front of the hotel. Closing the window reduced the noise slightly but makes for a very stuffy atmosphere in the height... More

We decided to travel to La Serena, and booked this hotel, after the earthquake in the central regions of the country. We could not go south to Pucon and Puerto Varas as we had planned. Once we arrived in LS, and saw the Costa Real, we knew that we would have a pleasant stay. This is smaller, upscale, modern facility,... More

stayed here for 3 days and we enjoyed this hotel very much. The room ov erlooked the pool area was clean and roomy. The location is excellent, within walking distance of all the attractions in the downtown and a short 5 minute ride to the beach. Service was excellent, nice bar and restaurant. Secure parking and very helpful staff.
