They have a nice outdoor swimmimg pool if you visit during the Summer.... More

This hotel has a good location, right on the water. It is nice to hear the waves crashing on the shore at night. My appreciation for the hotel stops there, which is in serious need of an update. There were doormats on floor beside the bed. The bathroom was not clean. Someone else's hair was in the bathtub, the glasses... More

Nice hotel with pool, and very close to the ocean. The staff is friendly (some English speaking) and helpful. The rooms are not that soundproof and the constant roaring of the ocean can be beautiful but also very loud. There is a nice bar with friendly waiters. I only stayed there during evening/night time, but I can imagine that it's... More

This is not a place to stay. Appalling food, the rooms are dirty with rust all over the windows and bathroom. Workmen hammering and sawing all afternoon and a definate health hazard. Came back from an indedible dinner, sent back twwice, to find the room awash with water. Not safe

The hotel is on the outskirts and a little too far from town to walk, but its easy to get a cab. It has a slightly 70s feel to it, and the wifi reception is weak (seems to be a feature of most Chilean hotels) but theyre sprucing it up and its bright, clean and quiet and spacious and has... More

If you plan to come to Arica on business do not stay at this hotel. The internet is terrible and the service is just as bad. No matter where you are in the hotel your internet will not work which makes... work impossible. The staff at the bar couldn't wait to leave and their hospitality was below par. Do not... More

We stayed at the Panamericana Hotel in Arica for 3 nights. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the rooms were small and a bit old and dated. There was also this musty smell that permeated rooms facing the ocean - which I know happens in a lot of older beach hotels - that could have been somewhat remediated.... More

As other reviewers wrote the place is quite out dated and in desperate need of maintenance. It is located near the beach with a nice view but the rooms are old and the bed is not really comfortable. Breakfast is lousy for the high price you pay. Service rather poor, no help with suitcases when having a room on second... More
