The facilities sustained minimal damage, in fact the cabin we stayed in had no damage. Alonso, the owner, built the cliffside structures with safety in mind. The foundations are rebar epoxied into the bedrock. Most of the cabin... More

We stayed at Punta Prieta at the most inappropriate time for them since the electricity went out just before we arrived at 3 in the afternoon and never came on all night.

If you are on the coast you absolutely MUST stop and visit Punta Prieta. This amazing guest house is perched high on a cliff overlooking quiet, clean beaches. The small fishing town of Don Juan is just south if you were to walk far enough, but you'd have no reason to leave the premises because Alonso and his partner will... More

Very nice location on the cliff. A lot of living creatures, from iguanas and to a variety of birds. Pleasant home sea food, Chilean wine. Clean rooms and a beautiful beach. A place for those who love peace and quiet. The rooms have a real hot water. But quite expensive.
