The hotel is very beautiful, the staff very attentive. It is located in a gorgeous valley, the rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The food is OK. The guides for the expeditions are very knowledgeble and helpful. The only downsode is that the free internet is very slow in all the hotel grounds. Overall we had a great stay!!

A hotel situated in one of the most magnificent locations in the world. The hotel is pure luxury in every sense. The rooms are outstanding and beautifully appointed.

My wife and I stayed for three nights. The staff is excellent. Everybody was very professional and overall nice. We purchased an all inclusive package. It was all worthy. Travel from airport back and forth was included as well as 5 tours we did in three days. All tours had extremely knowledgeable guides. Drivers were professional and cautious. All tours... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at the Alto Atacama on an accommodation, food and tour package. We stayed there in March 2015 and wished we had stayed 4 nights or more. It was the most memorable stay on our 7 week trip in South America! I loved the way the hotel blended into the surrounding red hills and the... More

Our 3 nights at the Alto Atacama were fantastic. The hotel is built to embrace the local environment with stunning views. From pick up at Calama airport through to the welcome upon arrival by Alessandra to drinks, food, excursions, every whim, the staff were patient with us non Spanish speaking visitors. I had cause to report a door handle that... More

We loved our 4 nights at the Alto Atacama. The hotel itself is beautifully built to be as unobtrusive as possible in the valley, the staff were superb, the excursions well organised with great guides and the food was very good (I guess you would call it "New Chilean" - Mediterranean based with an innovative twist using local ingredients). The... More

Brilliant location and the tours take you to amazing places. The hotel is well laid out and it looks all set to be a 5 excellent experience. The reality was it was close to a 3. Saved to a 4 by well meaning staff and the effect of the location. There were three main problems. First the rooms were dark... More
