We enjoyed our stay in this simple yet comfortable hotel, close to the centre of San Pedro. The manager is friendly and speaks good English but it helps if you speak Spanish. It is possible to have an evening meal if you order in advance.

San Pedro de Atacama is a little earth colored town with a great deals hostal-like accommodation. La Casa de Don Tomas appears to be the bigger accommodation with all the characteristic of a "real hotel." Understanding where is located, this hotel does a pretty good job in meeting the needs of its guests. The bedding is comfortable, the bathroom is... More

Lovely clean rooms. Helpful staff. Friendly people. Nice facility's. The restaurant is also very good. People take good care of this hotel, it is clean and well maintained. The best place to stay in San Pedro according to a local guide and i believe him. Something to be mindful of is the noise. People who visit Valle de la Luna... More

We spent 3 nights in April as part of a Chimu Adventures tour and it was an excellent choice for what we wanted. [ We should have stayed longer as there is plenty to do in the Atacama area]. It was an easy walk to the main street of town with some very good restaurants . The hotel room was... More

We spent 5 days at the hotel and once the issues were fixed, we had a very nice stay. The room was spacious and well layed out. Bathroom was small with no storage or counter space. We checked in late in the afternoon and with the outside temperature over 90 degrees, the room was warm. Our room had a freestanding... More

I stayed here in January. A little oasis in the oasis and a perfect walk to the village. The pool was very refreshing after a day of touring. The staff was excellent and our room was beautiful. I would definitely return! Thank you

We stayed at the hotel for a short one night stopover, and it was perfect for our needs. The staff were delightful & very friendly, the restaurant food good, and location an easy walk into town. The room was warm as only a fan to recirculate air (no AC), but this didn't cause us a problem.

This is an incredible place to stay. Reception was very welcoming and informative. Breakfast was the best we have had in Chile. Leaving for a very early tour they even provided us with a wonderful breakfast to take with us. It is 7 blocks from town center and that is just perfect. The rooms were spacious, the water a treat...

Being in the Atacama desert is hot, but being in this hotel is even hotter. The rooms are adequate as far as furnishing, but the room is a hot box with no fan, no air conditioning, nothing to cool the room and the temperatures do not drop at night. They do provide a room fan which does nothing but move... More
