El Huacachinero is a nice property. It’s centrally located, has a nice pool, a cool view of the dunes, and it has an oasis feel with the garden and outdoor seating. However, I’m giving this property 1 star because it failed in its primary purpose as a hotel, which is to provide guests with a restful place to sleep. After an exhilarating day with the sand dune buggies and sand boarding, all I really wanted was a good night’s sleep. I didn’t get that at El Huacachinero. Granted, there are things El Huacachinero hotel can control and things they can’t. The 1 star is for what they can control. First, the walls are paper thin. This means you can hear everything going on outside. There’s a party hotel a few sites over. The music was reverberating in our room and didn’t stop until 2am. They’re not responsible for the music, but this could have been dampened by better walls. Second, in the 2nd floor, there is a clear glass panel above the door. This means that light from hallway light spilled over in our room. This light didn’t go out until 1 am. I forgot my sleep mask, but it wouldn’t have mattered since we could have hosted a party in our own room with the music from the other place. Third, and most frankly, what I found most unrestful. At 7:30am, when I finally got a solid 5 hours of sleep, the hotel staff started cleaning the pool area. They were dragging plastic chaise lounges across the deck. They were loudly dusting off sand from each of the chair cushions. Remember, we’re surrounded by sand dunes. There’s sand everywhere! All the rooms face the pool. This constant dragging and pounding sound echoed in our paper thin walls and forcibly woke me up from deep sleep. I called the reception to please ask them to stop. It’s only 7:40 am! The receptionist said he’ll ask the cleaning people to stop. At 8am, I called again!! They didn’t stop at all. The receptionist said that the cleaning people just need more time. This is 100% within the hotel’s control. I’m writing this review at 8:15am because I can’t go back to sleep after all the dragging, pounding, and metal scratching in the pool area. Even right now, at 8:30am, all the noises are still being made, just different from before.

The Huacachinero has very basic, comfortable rooms with a very nice pool. The breakfast was adequate- fruits and fruit juices, rolls, cereal, etc. The front desk staff are very nice and helpful, but at times overworked with guests seeking help and advice. I was there on Saturday and Sunday nights and the noise and music from in town bars was a major irritant and continued until 6 am each of the following mornings. If you are a light sleeper, good ear plugs are a must. Sent from my iPad

This was a lovely stay and close to the sand dunes and lake in the oasis. The dinner was delicious and room was clean. The pool was warm and staff were friendly. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

Ignore the negative reviews on here. After reading the reviews we were a bit apprehensive staying here but our experience was the complete opposite. We would highly recommend this hotel. Yes the rooms are fairly basic but importantly they are clean, have air con, decent showers and the staff were really accommodating and friendly. And you’re only paying $50 a night so def good value for money. The pool was a great added bonus. However, if you’re looking to party until the early hours of the morning we probably wouldn’t recommend here as it’s a quiet hotel.

The main entrance of this hotel should look the best within Huacachina. Huacachina is a very small village that we can walk through the whole village by foot. I tried to find a more "luxury" hotel but definitely failed but glad that I found Hotel El Huacachinero which gave me standard but acceptable experiences. The room is very basic with private bathroom per my request, the air conditioner is quite noisy but I did sleep very well at Hotel El Huacachinero. The breakfast is with limited choice if you would need to wake up earlier for Nasca line flight but it was ok as we can't eat too much before the flight.
