The hotel consists of several individual cabins. Quote nice with lost of space. Every cabin comes with a veranda to enjoying the very warm evenings. The hotel is locaties in walking distance to the Center of San Pedro de Atacama. Although lost of restaurants are locaties in the Center, I canncertainly recommend the hotel restaurant. It is really a wonderful... More

If you have a liking for the rustic side of living for a change, this hotel with its cottages offer exactly that, but with running water, heating (if required) and nice clean beds to take away the pains and aches of hectic tours across the highest and driest Atacama deserts. The breakfast spread was nice and filling, available in the... More

This hotel has (or had) potential. The cottage type units are rustic and modestly furnished. Unfortunately the landscaping needs serious attention. Also, the furnishings themselves were worn and dated. Given some upgrades and maintenance, this hotel could rate better. We only ate at the restaurant for the breakfast that was included. We requested fired eggs and got scrambled. Ordered boiled... More

We recently spent 4 days in this very nice hotel in the old historical part of San Pedro and liked it very much. Our package included half pension and excursions, which turned out to be a very good choice that we would absolutely recommend. The staff is great, the rooms/bungalows are spacious and comfortable. The hotel's new wellness project looks... More

we liked the cottages. they are not nice, especially the outside patio we liked for reading and hanging out. the location is perfectly situated. the 2 pools are too cold to use, but the jacuzee which is heated is great. after arrival, we asked whether we could change the cottage and were allowed to, which was very nice. in general,...

Small cottages in a very cozy, local style. Our room was cleaned daily, heated. Very clean and nice.The staff left us chocolates every day. We were asked for our plans for the next day, every day. When we could be at breakfast the hotel prepared us breakfast to go and it was enormous. The restaurant prepares great drinks but the... More

The cottage we had was very comfortable and clean, the meals were all enjoyable but it was the addition of the tours that made this an excellent stay. We were fortunate enough to have Salvador who heads the hotel's tour services as our guide and we could not have had a more delightful experience, the excitement was contagious with the... More

Poblado Kimal is the annex of the Hotel Kimal across the street, right around the corner from the main drag in San Pedro. A collection of little cabanas with porches, it is quiet, has character and comfort. Small complaint, rooms had little light, and windows didn't open. But I loved the little porch. Breakfast is served across the street at... More

Hello Eileen, I appreciate the positive comments but your comment about our tours is down right unfair. I answered you a total of 18 emails with information about our tours including a pdf of descriptions and photographs explaining the routes of the excursions and your final email requested the booking of tours to Valle de la Luna and Laguna Cejar....

For the price they charge they could do better. Don't stay close to the street, to noise. The lodge are clean and they prepare a snack to carry on when you have an early tour. The breakfast should start 7:15 AM, never ready and the selection is poor. They can start earlier to match tours hours and i prove inthe... More

This hotel was recommended by my agent. I travel widely. For the high cost ($180per night) it is a disaster. On arrival most of the lights in my room were not working. Also in trying to fix them I find it difficult to find and English speaking staff member. For two days the shower cut off the hot water half... More
