We stayed only one night there, but it was a nice stay. The pool and the surrounding in the backyard of this hotel are very nice. The sand buggy Tour offered by the hotel is fantastic. We paid 50 soles per person and the tour took even longer than booked. In general, free WiFi, good breakfast, friendly staff Unfortunately our... More

We stayed here in June 2014 and really enjoyed the location. The grounds were nice and the pool, though we didn't swim. There was a loud chicken who woke us in the morning, but that happens all over Peru. We did eat in the restaurant and it was good. The guy at the front desk was very good at suggesting... More

Nice hotel at the base of the sand dunes in Huacachina. We were especially surprised by the excellent food at the hotel restaurant. Probably one of the best restaurants in Huacachina! Nice pool area and gardens and you can use the back gate to climb up straight into the grand sand dunes. Only drawback was the smallish room with a... More

We stayed for a single night only, and were glad we hadn't chosen to stay longer. There was loud music audible until 6 a.m., ear plugs were no match for the noise. There are also windows with no curtains above the doors that make it impossible to make the room dark. The only positive is the pool, which is good... More

We pulled away from the Peru Hop hostel crowd to say here. The rooms are good in terms of size. They took a few shortcuts (cheap materials) building the rooms but it's made up for with a great green balcony/walkway, nice garden and pool, great restaurant and the giant dune that creeps in the back gate and threatens to swallow...

Oasys in the oasys. Nice, clean, little hotel with a pretty garden and a pool. It is one block from the lake and surrounded by the sand dunes from the other side. Rooms are clean, new and nicely decorated. Food at their restaurant was nice, service was somewhat slow. Reception girl was friendly and helpfull. But their sand buggies are... More

Beautiful quiet, relaxed pool area. Powerful showers, good location and next to the only cash point in Huacachina. Restaurant was very average with terrible service (both my drinks took about 20 mins to come as they were forgotten). We missed out on sand buggying because 5 minutes before the alotted time the receptionist told us all their buggies were broken... More

The room is quite basic and I'd rather pay more for better accommodation, but there aren't many choices in this little desert oasis. Problem with the room - and have seen it at other hotels in Peru - they put a thin sheet directly on the mattress. There is no mattress pad. Ugh. And in our twin room, the bed... More
