This hotel is like an oasis in a desert. It is a business hotel and nearer than the airport but has good facilities including good wi if and a pool. Calama is strictly a mining town with the only attraction being the mining tour.

We stayed here for one night, as a stopover before San Pedro de Atacama. Beautiful food in the restaurant (buffet is literally everything you can eat!) and the service was impeccable. Airport shuttle was arranged for the following day. Breakfast was an amazing buffet. Room was great for the price.

No interest by this hotel that their internet is so inconsistent, it can´t be relied on for your entire stay, 1 day, or more. Don´t go here. Food served cold, not interested after 1 hour wait for dinner a la carte. So frustrating to stay her, it is not worth the effort

We had to sleep in Calama due to an early flight after a week's tour in Tarapacà and Atacama and did not expect any pleasure from this stop. Well, the hotel and its staff do everything in their power to make your stay worth it. Nice rooms and pool, great food, 5 minutes drive to the airport. Great value for... More

This hotel looked great when we arrived, although the reception staff were a little slow to react to our arrival. The room was compact but all we needed for a one night stay. We were given vouchers for a free drink, which was a nice touch. Everything went well until we went into the dining room for dinner. We did... More

We stayed here 1 night after taking the 3 day Salt Flat tour from Uyuni, as we had a flight from Calama to Santiago the following morning. Check-in was great, the room was excellent, and the beef burger and chips which was delivered by room service was truly amazing! (This may have been due to the unfortunate 72 hour experience... More

We booked two nights before flying south. After checking out the hotel's webpage, we looked forward to a relaxing time but we were very disappointed. They didn't get our booking through booking.com. The first room we were given had the safety deposit box sitting on the floor instead of being fixed on the wall. Additionally, the bathroom floor was dirty.... More

The situation was that I ordered an early plane from Calama to Santiago so I looked for a hotel in Calama and so the Park seemed ok but a few of the comments worried me. So that is where I start... This is a clean and well kept hotel. I was not there long enough to see any rats! The... More

Hotel is close to the airport and freeway. Our room was in the newer wing of the hotel. Room was very spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. Shower had good pressure. Breakfast was better than average. This is probably the best hotel we have stayed in Chile and we have stayed at SPG properties in Santiago and Villarica. I... More

Until yesterday night my impression of this hotel was average. Today, my opinion changed to terrible. Let me start with my first impression: 1.- The room is clean, the bed is comfortable, there is plenty of hot water, and the people in the hotel are mostly nice. 2.- The room gets a bit cold and the heating is not turned...
