Huacahina is very, very small, so we decided to splurge and get a nicer hotel with a pool as we would be spending a considerable amount of time in it over two days. El Huacachinero was a good choice we found. We had a room on the upper level, which was very basic (but did include a tv). There was... More

Compared with other hotels in huacachina area, El huacachinero is expensive. Furthermore, it doesn't offer additional value like extra commodities or above than average breakfast. Don't get me wrong, this hotel is a safe bet. Just I don't think it offers the best value for your money. PS: internet failed for around 24 hrs in our 2-night stay

We stayed 3 days at this nice hotel. Only supposed to stay for 2 days but decided to spend an extra day to relax around the pool. The pool was nice and cleaned daily as well. The restaurant had good food although service was slow sometimes. Could have had cheese for the breakfast I felt. We had some issues with... More

Stayed one night at this hotel, beautiful location in Ica near the oasis with sand dunes surrounding the village. room was expensive for Peru but worth it for the location. The pool looked dirty and no one was in it so we didn't either. breakfast was good.

Very nice hotel with swimming pool, restaurant and located next to an enormous sand dune which can be climbed on. Nice staff. Restaurant was good just like the breakfast. The travel agent next door can arrange dune trips. Rooms do not have television.

We stayed there for two days. Upon arrival to Ica it's a short cab to the oasis. The Oasis is rustic and lovely. The hotel is clean and basic. we enjoyed the pool area and the 1st class staff. Bring Soles instead of US dollars as exchange places are limited

My partner and I spent two night with El Huacachinero, and it was comfortable. It is a little rustic but that's to be expected when staying in the desert. Hotel staff were very kind, rooms were clean, restaurant/bar service was good, and the pool was a nice added touch. Walls as previously advised are very thin, but with a little... More

I've stayed here several times over the years and while it's grown and lost a little of it's magic it's still a great hotel to head to when you need to escape Latin America for a few hours.... The weather is always great, the setting is breath-taking and pool always inviting, one of those stays you never want to end.

This hotel has a very large sand dune in its backyard and a nice pool. A scenic view from the second floor. It is located in Huacachina, which itself is a scenic oasis amidst the Ica desert. The problem was my room on the second floor. It was tiny, hot, with no view and very spartan, felt almost like a... More
