We arrived here late at night, and found a few sandwiches waiting for us in our room.
The next day we explored the hotel (as one does) and found it to be spacious, friendly and having expert guides who would take us out on excursions.
The Salt Flats was a 'must', and the Valley of the Moon an 'even more must'. We took scores of photos, and enjoyed a picnic as the sun went down.
Food - excellent. Wine - after just one bottle there was no more left. More would be bought in the next evening, but it wasn't. Some staff came from the local village, and did not really speak good English.
But - we'd go there again. The Atacama is quite stunning, but include a visit to the Mendoza vineyards of Argentina, and quench your thirst.
