It is totally a beautiful and different place. It is a little pricey but well worth the price for the view of the desert in the morning and the star tour at night. Very basic. Luxury camping really Beautiful, peaceful, friendly, pretty, and absolutely delicious healthy food. I gave it a four for the basic accommodation.

We stayed 4 nights and had a great time, though probably 4 nights is 1 too many if you want to get to know the valley. The stars at night were spectacular, the domes were fully equipped, though make sure you ask for extra blankets as it got cold at night even in the summer. The breakfast was also excellent,... More

We had 5 nights of great weather, clear skies and nice summer temperatures in the Dome with a very comfortable bed open to the stars all night. That was a delight. My wife enjoyed the massages and I was up at the observatory each night with my binoculars and camera. The included observatory session was very good and geared to... More

We didn´t expect anything fancy, and read all the reviews well, and were still disappointed.. The place is very much in need of some updating (paint jobs, decking of the only two year old houses, etc.) and some general TLC to the entire place. The general area for example has one sofa only, so not an inviting place to sit... More

I don't even want to write this review because I want Valle de Elqui to stay the beautiful secret that it is. But…I'll be the bigger person and tell you all about it: Do make some time to explore the village. It is magical, and could very well be one of the most energetically charged places I've ever known. Everyone... More

Breathtaking view! Fantastic personalized service. Food was great! Staff courteous and extra attentive to our needs! Based on some of the reviews posted below, we were expecting a rustic camping like type of accommodation but we were agreeably surprised. The room was very clean, well organized and we had a great view of the stars and the mom all night... More

We stayed at Elqui Domos for 3 nights and found our time there to be very pleasant and enjoyable. The hotel is out from the "town" by probably 2-3 miles and I would highly recommend renting a car from the airport in La Serena for your stay here. Originally, I had planned for us to stay in one of the... More

I loved this place. My daughter and I spent hours going up and down (and up and down) the hill from our cabin to the main area (the "igloo" as she called it). We explored up on the hill and sat by the pool to read our books and just relax while looking through the valley towards town. The food... More

“I read about Elqui Domos a few years ago and knew that the next time I was in South America I’d have to check it out. My stay was everything I expected – rural, relaxing, and very special. I didn’t come here for luxury, but rather for a magnificent astronomical experience – and that’s exactly what I got! From the... More

My Husband, myself, and two of our adult children shared a "dome". We were staying for 2 nights. The weather the first day and night was unfortunately overcast turning to rain with snow on the top of the mountains around us. A number of storms blew up through the Elqui Valley that night and at 1am the electricity failed. Not... More
