This is a magnificent resort, built into the dessert landscape. Everything about it is top notch-the food, service and excursions. Although it appears expensive you get alot for your money, including the amazing excursions and alcohol! Rooms are beautiful, in a simple, elegant way. The setting is paradise. Don't miss gettting the lommi-lommi massage, heaven!

Alto Atacama is the best place to stay in St Pedro. Lovely rooms blending into the landscape, very good food, and really well run excursions. They arrange excursions every morning and late afternoon with very good guides for 4 - 9 people. There are some truly amazing things to see. The Valle de Luna is brilliant, Geysers are a long...

The resort itself, surrounded by volcanic mountains is positively beautiful - a real oasis. We pad a pre-paid 3 night 4 day package which included everything except... More

We originally had the B&B plan. So, we took the bus from the airport in Calama (easy to arrange at the airport). As we drove through the nearby village the college students on the bus commented, "Hope we're not staying here." But as we left the village and approached the resort another passenger commented, "You wouldn't be so lucky!" The... More

Dear HolliFam, Reading your comments is like reliving your trip with you. Thanks for taking the time to share! As you mention, the Alto Atacama does offer two different programs: Standard Bed & Breakfast rates vs. the all-inclusive plan. For some, the B&B program is a perfect fit, but the all-inclusive program is designed to give guests a seamless, holistic... More

This hotel was awesome - paradise in the middle of the desert. Beautiful grounds which are very well laid out. Everyone was very attentive and nothing was too much for them. The rooms were great with central heating for the chilly nights and very comfortable and private. The grounds were lovely with a few pools 1 heated and a spa... More

A dramatically beautiful location matched by the facility, staff and decor. We booked an all inclusive holiday through a travel agent as part of a larger tour but all 4 people in our group ( seasoned business & personal travelers) were extremely impressed by the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff and the quality of their programs. Despite what others... More
