Horrible place, don't even close to the 5 star rating that they claim of. Old facilities that lack of proper maintenance; hot swimming pool colder that the open-air one; no towels available at the swimming pool entrance; horrible service from personnel; no internet available in rooms and poor cell-phone signal; no service provided at breakfast (which itself is very poor...

My experience is so bad that i cant even wait to write this review when i get home. First, we arrived at about 3 pm and we couldnt get a room until 5pm! There was no apology, and all we get is that "we have to sanitize the room". When we saw other guests check in immediAtely upon arrival, we... More

Hotel was nice being close to the ocean but high up so a small drive down to restaurants. Winter month so cold and not much activity going on outside. Seemed like you could bike around the area. Saw some golf courses. Internet isnt available in the rooms and its not totally reliable in the lobby/bar area. None available downstairs either... More

What originally started as a very exclusive project, is at present a well located, yet poorly maintained place. I was very dissapointed in the state of the rooms, the overall untidiness and relative lack of discipline with which business is run at the place. Its price does not reflect the available facilities. However, it has a privileged location. It also... More

10 minute walk to the beach. Golf course is adjacent to hotel. Good restaurant on the ocean about 15 drive north near the Zapallar Resort. Staff was adequate. Rooms were OK. You need to go off property for nightlife.

I arrived at 13:30 to the front desk and they didnt find my reservation. I even showed them the email confirmation and even so they were about 15 minutes... More

Chilean service is below par and this is no exception. Personell at the front desk can't make a decision. We asked for towels to go to the beach and they were clueless. Not well maintained. Getting hotmwater took forever. Comfortable bed. For the money they charge I expect much better.

We were lost trying to find the Grand Hotel Zapallar Isla Seca at night and the Garmin GPS directed us to the Marbella Resort as the closest to Zapallar...It was cold and empty...the desk gave us a lower room with a view of the trees...Why not an upper floor if the place is empty...All in all it was alright, however,...

Head north from Vina del Mar and you'll find a much quieter coast. We stayed at the Hotel del Mar in Vina, very nice views but it is more of a refuge from the craziness of the beaches filled with day trippers from Santiago. We took a private driver and car and simply headed northwards after reading reviews that Zapallar... More
