The hotel is one of the better places to stay in Huacachina. The rooms are a little dark which is ok for sleeping but the nice pool is a plus. We enjoyed relaxing at the pool and climbing the dunes right at the back of the hotel.

I booked this hotel before looking at TripAdvisor, so I was a little nervous to see some not great reviews. But to my relief, the hotel was lovely, the staff exceedingly friendly and helpful, the food delicious (highly recommend the lomo saltado), the rooms clean and comfortable, and, perhaps most importantly (to me), very reliable wifi! Lovely pool, and so... More

A bit of a stretch on our backpackers budget but well worth it. Really nice hotel, lovely room, ensuite, pool, decor. I read some bad reviews about the staff but we found them friendly and helpful. Rooms cleaned every day. The only slightly negative things were that the WiFi didn't work in the bedroom, and the room was very warm.... More

We have spent three days in this hotel. The hotel itself is quite nice for this small town, pool is very refreshing. Unfortunately no safe in the room. Staff at the reception ok, staff in the restaurant rude. Everything is too much, if you order something, you really see how pissed and unmotivated they are to do something. After waiting... More

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
