We stayed at the El Huacachinero in November 2014. The location is next to a magnificent sand dune that you can hike on and slide down. It as a nice pool and a very nice restaurant where we enjoyed dinner. The room was clean and very simple. I was not able to shower in the morning because of no hot... More

This hotel came highly recommended and it is very good. The room was clean and nice, and the pool with the incredible sand dunes just out the back gate is fantastic. The only down side was our room was quite far from the reception so no wifi worked in there.

We stayed there for 2 nights. At first sight of course the hotel is awesome and the rooms spacy and tidy but service wasn't really helpful and the american breakfast was extremely poor. One scramble egg, juice, bread and bad taste fruits. Sorry but this isn't desayuno americano. Their original site, from where we did the booking is misleading, cause... More

We stayed at this place for two nights and it was a great treat. There is a restaurant, a pool, good wifi. It is situated right next to a dune, offering great views of people surfboarding. Good experience overall: clean, hot water, cable TV. There is quite a bit of noise from parties of the weekend, so it may be... More

A good choice, a small hotel with rooms generally overlooking the pool, which has the backdrop of one of the huge dunes. Our room was a good size with very comfy bed and hot water and the breakfast included juice, fruit, eggs and rolls. We ate twice in the restaurant, and while service was a little slow, the food was... More

Nice well kept hotel, located exactly next to the sand dunes. The pool is quiet small and the water is very cold but the view of the sand dunes is really nice and we spent two very relaxing days there! The rooms are quiet nice and spacious and the bathroom is clean with hot water. The only issue with the... More

The room is clean and big. Shower current is a bit low but we had hot water. Beatiful pool area, with gate to the dunes. Internet is ok in common areas but not in the room. Breakfast is continental but enough. We recommend to book buggy on the agency near the hotel (desert travel) they ate safe and much cheaper... More

I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars. The people working behind the froth desk were very nice and helpful, although the staff at the hotel restaurant is horrendous. They deserve 0 stars. My girlfriend and I were one of two tables seated for lunch, it took us over 30 minutes to get our waters (not an exaggeration) and over an... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the water pressure in the (hot) shower good. There is a swimming pool there but the water temperature is freezing!! The hotel has a direct access to the sand dunes so you really can climb them from your doorstep. There is also a very nice restaurant in the hotel.... More

I was unsure about whether to give this a 3 or 4 star rating as we had a mixed stay. Although the hotel it well located within Huacachinero (although that wouldn't be hard as the place is tiny!) and the room was clean and comfortable we had a dreadful experience at the restaurant for dinner. My sister and I waited... More
