First, the things which were done well: The free sandboards are absolutely brilliant - my girlfriend and I took them out every evening and loved it. The location is nice, tucked away behind the restaurant so that it isn't right on the main promenade (although it is a very small village so it's still a good location).
Finally, the price is excellent and offers great value for couples - probably the best value private room you'll get in Huacachina (which is definitely well-worth a visit). At 60 soles for a double with en-suite with comfy beds, decent pillows and ceiling fan, you can't do much better.
There were some things that needed improvement though: First, the hot water which was below-par on two out of our four days. One morning, the hot water was entirely non-existent. We told the receptionist and were pointed in the direction of an electrically-heated shower located in the middle of a building site on the roof (not really good enough). After further complaint, we were moved rooms, but then that shower stopped producing hot water too.
Also, the wi-fi was down for the entirety of our stay. Finally, we were awoken one night by someone on the premises drilling into the walls after 10pm, then at 6:30am when someone set off a car horn, also on the premises.
Overall, we can see improvements are being made to the place which are causing a temporary disruption and many of our complaints can be put down to bad luck, so overall it was a good solid choice, particularly for the budget traveler.
