We stayed three nights which is a sufficient amount of time to relax, dune climbing, buggy tour and wine tour. The location is beautiful. The rooms basic without hair dryer, glasses, slow wifi and especially NO hot water. The Restaurant is really good for lunch or dinner (also compared to other options close by). Breakfast is characterized by a low... More

Good location and hotel facilities (swimming pool, bar, restaurant). Very nice view of the sand dunes from the hotel courtyard. Room we had was very basic: - No hair dryer in the bathroom, - No drinking glasses. Very limited breakfast selection.Good service at the reception.

Stayed here for just 1 night so we could go on dune buggies and sandboarding. Hotel is in a good location, with access to the sand dunes directly from the back of the hotel. Probably the best hotel in Huacachina, quiet location compared to the other hotels. 1 minute walk to the lake where, you will find bars and restaurants.... More

Hotel was really nicely kept with an amazing view of the sand dunes which surround it! Breakfast in the morning was good, and the restaurant do lovely lunches and dinners if you can't find any where else in Huacachina. Our room was very noisy because of a generator but the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and moved us... More

We stayed here over a weekend and did not get a wink of sleep due to the "partying, music, shouting and horns" from outside. As stated by others it was hell and should not be allowed. The hotel experience didn't start off too well either. We waited over 10 minutes to check in standing in front of the receptionist who... More

Huancachina is overrated on its own... And this hotel mad our day and night there terrible! It was a FRIDAY night and the music could be heard in to every single room. The hotel is located three houses from a disco that does not respect noise regulations at all, so we were in a rave party the entire night. We... More

Based on reviews, I thought it was gonna be a great hotel. It was so so. The pool was nice, but not in this cold june weather. They have construction in the lobby so the first impression was not great. Also the room we received was dark and gloomy. We asked for the change of room and the staff was... More

Nice hotel overshadowed by one of the massive dunes pretty much in the back garden. Nice pool if you are in Huacachina for more than the usual 1 / 2 nights. Pricier than the numerous hostels on the road, but worth it if you want to relax at the hotel. Simple breakfast of eggs / bread and nice coffee.
