This is not going to be my shortest review but I can't help commenting on every aspect. - Bedroom (Catarpe) is perfect. Large, tile floor, clean, private patio, comfy bed, and just beautifully decorated. - Grounds: lovely sustainable design which must be even nicer in spring when the trees are in bloom. We were able to use the temperate pool... More

A bit skeptical at first to know that our hotel is located a bit far from the city. But it is not a problem at all once you are here; it is a privilege. Beautiful setting, direct view of the desert dunes and mountains you get along the way ay your fingertip. Excellent and spacious room, with more than enough... More

I highly recommend Alto Atacama. The lodge and the surrounding area are beautiful. From the moment we arrived at the airport to the time they dropped us off, everyone took great care of us. All of the staff are very friendly and accommodating in a sincere, down-to-earth kind of way. The drivers are professional and safe. The guides are a... More

Jen, Thanks for taking the time to write about your experience at the Alto. The spa is considered one of the best in South America and recently won the World Spa Awards -- we recommend you try a local treatment like a quinoa facial or an altiplanic mud wrap. As an independently owned hotel, the Alto's staff is very hand-on... More

We loved every minute of our stay at the Alto Atacama lodge. They picked us up at the airport, arranged our activities, fed us very well, and showed us some of the wonder that is Atacama. I wish that we had stayed for a month! Not every worker is fluent in every language, but when language became a barrier they... More

We just got back from Alto Atacama. We had the "all inclusive plan." If you are thinking about staying please read all the reviews from the past two years. They are absolutely correct about everything. I will break my review into categories so you can decide: Rooms - Very clean, excellent housekeeping - beds turned down every night, and made... More

Though I unfortunately didn't stay in this gorgeous hotel, I was able to visit upon organizing a lunch there for a group of clients. With the help of the manager Alvaro Mendez, we had a fantastic lunch and he was even able to arrange for a birthday cake surprise, as it was the birthday of guy from our group. It... More

We had a remarkable 4-night stay at the Alto Atacama, and are already plotting when we might be able to return. Not only is a it a great resort and setting, but also the service was top-notch and they made everything easy for us (even a couple of special requests we had). Foremost, the setting is outstanding -- strikingly beautiful... More

From our airport pick-up in Calama Airport to our delivery we felt like valued guests every minute. The all-inclusive resort offers all kinds of half-day and full-day trips to enjoy the region but you need to stay at least 4 nights to really get your money's worth. Our 3.5 days were filled with adventure: sand dunes, geysers, river beds with... More
