LA HACIENDA LODGE gave me one of the best holiday rest ever. Next to the best beach I've been , it's a place to have fun with friends or couple accompanied by the best service (chilean owners)... 100% recommended!! (You will want to return)

What a wonderful place -- stone, rock and natural woods in a fabulous tropical garden setting. Gorgeous pool is actually two pools, with a palm tree on an island in the middle. Our room (#5) was exquisite, with flagstone walls, a wicker bed, an exceptionally luxurious bath complete with jacuzzi tub and a view of the pool. It's a family-run... More
