A couple of weeks ago I visited Arica and this hotel again after almost 20 years, and it keeps very well. The location is fantastic, besides the Laucho Beach (first line tho the beach) and in front of the Morro, it is possible and easy to walk to downtown by the promenade. The rooms are OK, majority with sea view,...

This hotel would have been great in its prime. Our rooms were spacious, though we had to be carefull not to trip down the two level flooring. The hotel structures are beginning to rust and the hotel staff are not proficient in English. When we were there, the other visitors used Spanish with the staff. We had one query to...

Overview: used mainly by Chileans this is one of three choices for a quality hotel in Arica. One is next door and more expensive the other is in town and does not have the same sea views. Location: 20 minute walk from town on the sea front. Really nice views of sea and the Morrow! Rooms: Great sea views, big...

We kept being told how good the Hotel Arica is, and how smart and terrific it was in every way. We arrived. We had booked an adapted room, but were put in an ordinary one, which was actually changed with no trouble at all. The adapted bathroom had a floor akin to an ice skating rink (for anyone), we couldn't...

The sea views are wonderful, as you are right on the beach. This is a very charming, relaxing hotel, but the room and bathroom were sadly in need of updating. Breakfast was very nice, with excellent breads, fruit and coffee, but the milk had curdled. I'm sure the pool would be nice but it was out of action when we...

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...

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...

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...
