A present, clean hotel with a great view of the big dune from the pool. Friendly staff. The location is good, but everything is close in the town. The room away from the reception are quiet. 207 had OK WiFi, bigger bathroom and was quieter than 209. But WiFi in 209 is better but road noiseand reception can be heard.... More

Best Hotel that I stayed at Perú, great swimming pool (very cold in such a hot weather), the backyard of the Hotel was a huge Sand Dune, the restaurante was EXTREMELY good (I had to dinner at the Hotel because I tried the food at lunch and it was awesome). I would recommend to ask for the Air conditioning rooms!... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel, the room was comfortable and clean, as with most hotels at times a little noisy. The location Is excellent away from the backpacker party area. Well worth climbing the sand dune behind at sunset but allow time as it is strenuous climb.

We slept in this hotel for 1 night. Although it was basic, is was fine. As we asked for a room with double bed instead of singles, they gave us another room immediately. The pool was nice, breakfast was ok. We did the buggy ride with the hotel buggies. It is expensive (70 soles for 2 hours) and lasts only... More

Hotel El Huacachinero was one of the best hotels we stayed at on our trip to Peru. The location is great, within walking distance to everything. The room was a good size, everything was clean, had A/C and a fan which is defiantly needed in the desert heat. It also had good wifi, hot showers with good water pressure, and... More

Hotel El Huacachinero was incredible. My husband and I spent the month of April travelling Peru with another couple and this place absolutely knocked out socks off. We had planned to stay for 1 night, but upon arriving decided to stay another night..and another after that! We ended up there for 5 days. The rooms were a good size, comfy... More

This is easily the best place in Huacachina because the rest of them are backpackers holes. It's really a good hotel, with good clean room, good pool and good food but it's damn expensive for what you get especially if you are basing your choice on the lonely planet guide where it says prices twice cheaper of the reality.

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
