Although I had read about this hotel before coming to Bolivia, I have to say it was a pleasant surprise. It really was 4-5 star luxury despite being made of salt and in such an isolated location. I didn't look too closely at the detail but overall it ticked all the boxes for us - comfortable rooms with modern bathrooms,... More

My girlfriend and I broke budget to stay here, and have no regrets. We organised our trip through their website (palaciodesal.com.bo) and our contact, Pedro, was very helpful. He created a 3 day itinerary for us and was very accommodating when we needed to change certain details. He even changed dates at the last minute and arranged for a night... More

The Uyuni salt flats are one of the world's amazing places and this is really the place to stay should you be visiting for more than one day. It is, of course, built of salt. Nothing much to look at from the outside but inside beautifully designed, spacious, airy and filled with artworks (also made of salt). There is a... More

Very beautiful hotel, built largely from salt, very stylish. The room was quite nice and very clean, and the food excellent. The hotel has an upstairs room with a telescope, from which you can view the sunset over the Salar. My grandson and I spent time playing pool and darts as well, which was a lot of fun. The hotel...

The place is gorgeous & lobby is definitely worth the 4 star rating, rooms are small but made from salt. The MAIN ISSUE is that this hotel told us after arrival that they do not allow credit card to pay for rooms or dinner (hotel is isolated 45 minutes from nearest town). We were leaving first thing in the morning... More

We stayed for one night. The room had an igloo shaped dome ceiling mad of salt bricks. A very nice place, built out of salt. Breakfast and a buffet dinner was included, which was a bonus. The hotel staff were very friendly and the food was good. The WiFi in the bedroom worked well. The hotel is located, almost on... More

The hotel was very unusual, being constructed almost entirely of salt, and yet it was beautiful. It was spacious and airy and the rooms, though small, were charming and fun. The food was excellent and the staff were all lovely. We loved our stay here. BUT don't bother with the 'cocktail bar' We spent ages trying to decide what to... More

The staff is extremely accommodating and it is surprisingly a very comfortable hotel despite its limited power supply, extreme weather conditions in the area and remote location. The food was superb. The staff prepared chicken cooked solely with salt and a few spices.

To be sure, a hotel made out of salt could be construed as "gimmicky". That being said, it is an excellent hotel in its own right. First, the architecture is stunning. The rooms look like the inside of an igloo, which is a unique feature in what is essentially desert. More importantly, they were clean and well-furnished. Being there in... More
