I just popped into hotel Kimal for a smoothie (which was delicious) and then I didn't want to leave. It's a relaxing and welcoming oasis in the desert and the perfect way to reals whilst travelling. My treatment was excellent and I left feeling revitalised.

Built in the traditional adobe, with cabin-like rooms this place has it’s eco credentials blatantly displayed. The rooms are beautifully presented, although lighting can be an issue sometimes. The in-house restaurant is lovely and food is good quality and well presented, with reasonable prices although not the cheapest you can get in San Pedro, but then it is one of... More

Stayed here with my wife and 2 kids and it was the perfect hotel for us. The location is fantastic - in town but very quiet. We arranged for a shuttle from the Calama airport (Sky Airlines is cheapest and very good) and did not need a car. We really like how shaded and wind protected the hotel and rooms... More

This hotel keeps it super clean and the staff comes by twice a day. The concierge is a little overwhelmed. It wasn't till the third day that we were told we should leave our key with the front every time we leave. The excursion we took was a tad overpriced but they did have a lovely snack for us at...

We, two adults, stayed 4 nights and were very happy with the accommodations, good taste of decor and conditions of facilities. It's location is ideal. The personnel is friendly, helpfully and well trained. Would recommend it to anybody visiting San Pedro de Atacama.

For the price we got off the internet, $150/night, it met our expectations, warm heater and shower, turn down service, and packed breakfast if you had to leave early for day trips, Unique adobe room, low lighting, on quiet street yet close to square and Main Street. Receptionist is not fluent in English and we have to accept the no... More

This hotel is right in the heart of where the action is in San Pedro de Atacama. Room was fine with gas central heating and shower so easy to adjust to a constant hot which is not the norm.

A small complex of Adobe apartments off the reception area. The room was spacious, clean and tidy though it tended to retain the heat. The supplied fan was a real necessity if a little noisy. The small pool area was overlooked by a sun terrace opposite the breakfast and restaurant area. The view from the terrace across the rooftops was... More

Lovely hotel in a quiet part of town. Excellent rooms, beds very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Helpful staff and a good breakfast offering. I'd recommend it. The only thing that I would say which is slightly negative is that although we picked it because it had a pool, the pool was so cold there was no way anyone could swim... More
