We stayed there for 5 nights as our honeymoon. When they welcomed us with lovely welcome drinks, we felt the hotel was literary an oasis in dessert after a long drive across Altiplano. (Our car broke down in the middle of nowhere in Bolivia, had to wait someone to drive pass by chance for over 4 hours) The location was... More

A wonderful eco sensitive resort with a fabulous spa, restaurant and terrific bar. Daily excursions too numerous to mention but worth a four or five day stay just to fit them all in. The starry skies at night viewing with a guide is worth staying up for. The unbelievable moonscape outside of the resort makes you very thankful for all... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in early June 2015. The room was nicely appointed and a decent size. Of course you stay here for the peace and quiet, so no TV! The hotel staff were all very attentive, and the meals were excellent, though the menu did get a little challenging after 6 days. We did... More

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
