No words can describe this hotel, my friends. It is simply wonderful! Unique. It seems home made with carved wood found on the beach. It is more a meditation hut on a fjord than an hotel. It's worth the trip to the -almost- end of the "civilized" world to enjoy the meditative quality of this place. Honest? It is not... More

After travelling through Central and South America for over a year I found myself here - my favourite hostel in all my travels!!! Cucao is a beautiful location adjacent to the national park entrance on the lovely island of Chiloe. This hostel is situated on a stunning picturesque lake and offers modern very functional and comfortable accommodation. The dorm room... More

On the West coast, away from the rather noisy East of Chiloé, this is the ideal place to relax. Very comfortable rooms - without TV :) - with beautiful views over the lake. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, comfortable living room, practical and well-equipped kitchen, and a beautiful terrace with a hot tub. Kayaks for rent. Wonderful walks nearby.

This new hostel is in an extremely beautiful location, with panoramic views over the lake from the living area and bedrooms. The hostel is built to a high standard, with lots of wood, and lovely feather duvets. The staff are really friendly and the breakfast is great too. There is a very calm atmosphere- great to relax!

This nice hotel is the only choice in Cucaco if you want to stay in a better place than in a camping. and in winter you should not!. The hotel is in wood decor and is very warm and comfortable. Stunning view around the lake!

We were recommended this hostel by other travellers and decided to check it out. The hostel is only 2 years old and completly build out of wood. The building is really nice: big kitchen, cosy living room with sofa's and fireplace, lovely wooden deck looking out to the river and lake. The private room looks like a hotel room: modern... More

Quaint hotel. Nice rooms. Cool and humble design. Clean, simple, comfortable, great hot tub, amazing view. Great breakfast. Very friendly staff. Great info on what to explore (kayak, horseback, national parks, many trails). Good food, ate some pretty good empanadas too!

We planned on spending a few days at Palafito Cucao to explore the park and relax. One night was too much! We paid 45,000CP or $100USD for a matrimonial room with private bathroom. The location is not as quiet or as remote as we thought it would be. It is in the little village with buildings on either side of... More

02 nights in this new and very cozy place to stay were enough to enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the National Park Chiloe. My first experiences was the smell of the hostel, it was built with native trees that make you feel that you are in the middle of the forest. Second experience was the rooms and their decoration of... More
