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!

We only stayed here because my girlfriend got sick and we needed a nicer place than a hostel to stay in while she recovered. It was perfect for that and although it wasn't really in a backpackers budget, the price was reasonable. The room was nice with a big bed and good bathroom. The breakfast was alright and the restaurant... More

This was my favorite hotel in Peru. I wish I had stayed in Huacachina longer only to stay here. So cute and clean. The hotel staff was super friendly, breakfast was great, great location. Also had lunch in the hotel restaurant one day and it was good as well. Stayed here with a friend for sadly, only one night. Which... More

Great, cosy hotel, with helpful and smiley staff. Tidy, clean, nice room, with lovely hot shower. I specifically recommend the dune rides & sandboarding with the hotel's very own buggies. Amazing ride and adrenaline rush, unmissable experience!!! After having stayed for two nights, we decided to extend our booking and spent another two days in El Huacachinero to enjoy the... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights here on Dec 26th and 27th. The hotel has a great view of one of the largest dunes from the pool. There's a nice restaurant on site (heard the food was good but we didn't end up eating here), the staff is beyond helpful and incredibly friendly, rooms are okay. Pros: -... More

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
