We did a weekend trip from Santiago to visit Mont Gras vineyards and participate in the harvest festival (I'll also review that). The hotel is just outside of Santa Cruz and is surrounded by vineyards. Our first impression was that it was very cute. As you pull up, you drive through some vineyards and approach the property. The hotel has about 20 rooms (?), a breakfast area and a pool.
We arrived before check in time, but luckily one of our rooms was available and we dropped our bags in there. The rooms are simple and cozy. They have a bed (or 2), desk, chair, lamp, and balcony. It was nice to come in and warm up with the heat on. And the bathroom is nice, too. All I care about is the shower, and it never stopped producing steaming-hot water throughout my very long shower.
The place is small, so it doesn't have all the amenities. I'm just rating it for what it does have.
-Pool: Looked nice; we didn't go in (forgot swimsuits and it was COLD!).
-Lobby: There was a bar, several lounge areas with DirecTV, and a large table where we played Yahtzee (we brought it).
-Food: There is a basic breakfast buffet included with ham, cheese, bread, butter, fruit, etc. Nothing special. You can walk to a very nice Italian restaurant through the vineyards.
Overall, I'd recommend it to couples. It's peaceful and quiet. But for a family of 4, we had to get 2 rooms and that upped the cost. (4/5)
