The main thing that stuck me when I entered the hotel was watching the pool in the middle, and a huge sand dune on the background. I just loved it. It is amazing and relaxing, specially at night. Food at the hotel is good, they provide wifi, and 2 daily rides for watching the sunset from the middle of the... More

The bed was comfy and the room was a nice size but you would expect much more for the price. Lightglobes were dead, air con blew semi cool air and shower was not overly clean. The pool area was nice though, we ate twice in the restaurant, the first time was good but the second time we had to send... More

Pro's: The hotel is located within Huacachina just half a minute walking from the lake. It breathes a relaxing atmosphere and has a pool. Con's: Breakfast is simple, and hotel restaurant staff slow/not interested. Next to this the hotel has continues issues with its water pumps, due to which rooms on the 2nd floor (incl. ours) did not have water... More

Huacachina was one of my favorite places in Peru and this hotel was wonderful and reasonable with a great view of the dunes from the pool area. Most of the places in Huacachina are hostels and I'm really not a hostel person so this was a great option. The breakfast was included but was nothing to write home about. The... More

I spent one night in El Huacachinero and I feel like I got robbed. Indeed, the 65 dollars I paid for the double room weren't worth it. The room was good and clean, but not exceptional. One could expect much more for this amount of money in Peru. I got the same kind of service in a hostel in Paracas... More

Step out of your room and a 200+ foot sand dune dominates the view --- which is awesome. Room is about 3 star --- surprisingly good for the price. Good breakfast buffet. Best place we stayed at in 3 weeks in Peru.

Best hotel/hostel we stayed in for 5 weeks in South America. The first appearance of this place was excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful and got out room ready before check in. We had lunch in the restaurant twice and both occasions it was good food and reasonably priced for a hotel. The pool area was very clean, quiet... More

Cozy room, great bedding, AC!!!! Kind staff, good restaurant. Not as rowdy as other places in Huacachina which was nice. Clean, large pool and perfect view of the dunes. Bathroom was large and clean, great shower pressure! Great value! Definitely best comfortable hotel option that still has character.

Amazing location, clean and plain rooms, good value - definitely a budget-type accommodation however the restaurant onsite is surprisingly great - at under $100 a night it's a decent option. Had no complaints and the pool, nicely situated beneath almost vertical sand dunes was a nice bonus. Not particularly romantic but serviceable for sure.

The restaurant food is good with huge portions. Breakfast is pretty typical with eggs if you want. Front desk was very helpful with everything that we needed and helped us to book a wine tour. Wifi worked great. Overall a wonderful place to stay!
