A good choice, a small hotel with rooms generally overlooking the pool, which has the backdrop of one of the huge dunes. Our room was a good size with very comfy bed and hot water and the breakfast included juice, fruit, eggs and rolls. We ate twice in the restaurant, and while service was a little slow, the food was... More

Nice well kept hotel, located exactly next to the sand dunes. The pool is quiet small and the water is very cold but the view of the sand dunes is really nice and we spent two very relaxing days there! The rooms are quiet nice and spacious and the bathroom is clean with hot water. The only issue with the... More

The room is clean and big. Shower current is a bit low but we had hot water. Beatiful pool area, with gate to the dunes. Internet is ok in common areas but not in the room. Breakfast is continental but enough. We recommend to book buggy on the agency near the hotel (desert travel) they ate safe and much cheaper... More

I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars. The people working behind the froth desk were very nice and helpful, although the staff at the hotel restaurant is horrendous. They deserve 0 stars. My girlfriend and I were one of two tables seated for lunch, it took us over 30 minutes to get our waters (not an exaggeration) and over an... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the water pressure in the (hot) shower good. There is a swimming pool there but the water temperature is freezing!! The hotel has a direct access to the sand dunes so you really can climb them from your doorstep. There is also a very nice restaurant in the hotel.... More

I was unsure about whether to give this a 3 or 4 star rating as we had a mixed stay. Although the hotel it well located within Huacachinero (although that wouldn't be hard as the place is tiny!) and the room was clean and comfortable we had a dreadful experience at the restaurant for dinner. My sister and I waited... More

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
