We spent 6 nights at the hotel and had a fantastic time. The room was very good: ours overlooked the river and was large, had a comfortable outside space and a good bathroom. The wifi didn't work in the room but that wasn't a problem for us. We were full board and we found the meals to be fine -... More

Dear Danny, First of all, we would like to thank you for staying at the Hotel more than the average guests do. Seems you really enjoyed it, and were totally decided to get " a desert immersion" starting from the deepest counterpoint: San Pedro de Atacama. Rugged, wild and remote, San Pedro is known for its dramatic and colorful geology.... More

Just had a wonderful experience there with my family. The chef kept surprising us with his choices. Nice beers and wines. Staff really friendly. The room by the lake couldn't be better: huge bed, really great space, full service and even a room to see the stars during the night. Strong recommended.
