Beautiful location, a bit i out of the way and hard to find - but spectacular for stargazing. It is fairly rustic with the cabins and quite a hike (no porters to help with luggage) but in all a beautiful and wonderful experience. The hot water is spotty but overall this is so worth it. Elqui is magical and Domos... More

We spent three nights at the Elqui Domos in January and, though we loved Pisco Elqui, we were eager to leave the hotel by our final day. Perhaps we had unreasonable hopes because this was our honeymoon, but we were disappointed by several aspects of our stay. We chose a cabana over a dome, thinking it would be a bit... More

We stayed here for one night on a trip through the Atacama. It's not easy to find, you need to keep going through Pisco Elqui and when you are just about to turn around because you think you've missed it then you're close. The mostly female staff are very helpful and friendly. At one point we were rather alarmed by... More

Great spot in the valley! The domes are just perfect, the roof opens and you get to stare outside with millions of stars from your own bed! The night we were there it was (thank god!) not cloudy, and through the hotel we booked the astronomy tour. At 11PM he picked us up and went to the top of the... More

We really liked this place. Didn't get to try the food besides the breakfast which is decent, buffet style. If you want to eat lunch there or dinner you have to reserve by a certain time (not sure what time). But I say try the restaurants in Pisco Elqui the ones we went to were great! It's a clean place...

Elqui Domos is one of those places that basically has to get a five. The hotel consists of several geodesic domes, built ingeniously over platforms so that each can be a two-floor suite. The ceilings can then be pushed open to reveal the magnificent Elqui sky. Each dome has a patio, suitable for a picnic, and the honor bar is... More

The small houses are certainly cozy and well worth staying in for a night or two. Amazing to watch the sky from there. Nice pool too. However, the set dinner was not at all worth the rather high price. Instead, go into Pisco Elqui and try one of the really good restaurants there! I think the staff were a bit... More

First saw their pictures on their website and UT IS NOTHING LIKW IT. This is a slight cleaner version of a camping site. Domes was cute with the open top and ur bed will be right under it so that u ll see the starry sky when dark. Tho the premise is poorly maintained and almost filthy I would say... More

The previous reviews have it spot on: it's a glamping venue with minimal and modest amenities - which are more than enough for a few nights stay. Pool... Scenery... Simple restaurant with a great staff that make basic but incredibly tasty food... And Pisco Sours! The concept here is the draw. Don't come if you're wanting or expecting a 5-star... More

They have domes and observatory cabins. You can also find astronomic tours, different types of massages, horse riding and tarot reading all coordinated by the reception of the hotel. And all of which are very good. The hotel is located very peacefully 3km outside Pisco Elqui. The nighttime view from the cabins is very impressive, best enjoyed from the bed.... More
