Quite an experience…the domes are not recommended for sleepwalkers or handicapped (bed upstairs, hanging on wooden posts, no barrier on left side). We had a car to get into town, its slightly far out but some ppl walked. Wifi in reception, not in domes. Kettle, coffee/tea complimentary in rooms, clean and warm enough for winter visitors. Domes open from top... More

This is the first accommodation of this type we've had the pleasure of staying at. After a life changing event having viewed the night sky and stars from the top of Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii, we knew that while in Chile we wanted to visit the star gazing sites of the Elqui Valley, and decided on the...

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to north. Place is more like camping with domes and cabañas. After reading reviews on tripadvisor we decided to sleep in cabañas, because they can be locked and they are apparently bit cleaner and better maintained than domes. Place is in the middle of nowhere, so you need car to get... More

We stayed for our 5 year anniversary and loved it. We booked the luna de miel package (honeymoon) & it was a really great value for everything included. It included 2 nights in a domo (they are really neat! "Glamping" domes with a convertible roof to lay in bed & watch the stars at night!), breakfast every day, one dinner,... More

I'd found Elqui Domos once while seaching for cool places to stay around the world in AirBnb, and when I got the chance to go to Chile I had no doubt on visiting it. The experience was amazing: the service is great, the observatories are really cool and well equipped and the skies of Pisco Elqui are truly an unique... More

Be sure to note that this is not a conventional "hotel", it is more like an upmarket campsite. My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night in one of the domes. The domes are very spacious with a lounge area, a large very comfortable double bed up a small staircase and a bathroom with a shower. The dome was... More

We went to the hotel for one night to stay with some friends who wanted to experience the amazing night skies of the Elqui Valley. We enjoyed our stay and had a good time. We thought it was expensive for a what is not quite a hotel but an upmarket campsite with large dome shaped structures acting as rooms, with... More

Elqui Domos is essentially a luxury campground with a heck of a view. I stayed in one of the four cabins higher up the mountain slope and had a wonderful experience. For a hotel/resort in the middle of rural northern Chile, the beds were spectacular and the buildings were modern. The wall-sized windows would open to give you an unobstructed... More

I was scheduled to stay here as part of a package tour of the Elqui Valley in Chile, and after reading the very mixed reviews here I was concerned. Now having been there, it's clear to me that the unhappy reviews relate to not registering on their advertising and/or the generous photo record of the place that the owners provide.... More

This is camping taken to its absolute best - comfortable cabins, were you can watch the night sky as you go to sleep. The telescope session, an extra cost is not to be missed, as it is done in your own small group by a former actor who knows his stuff about the night sky and has the skill to... More
