I have been coming to El Huacachinero for many years with friends and family looking to escape from Lima's dull winter, and the place keeps getting better with each visit. It is not fancy or luxurious, but comfortable, clean and cozy. The personnel is very cordial, always trying to help and solve whatever request we may have, from vegetarian or... More

We really enjoyed our stay here and loved that we could sit and drink beverages under the sand dunes around the beautiful pool The gardens and grounds were really well looked after and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the staff were very friendly. The one thing I thought could be tweaked was whilst checking... More

This is probably your best pick in Huacachina (depending on your budget). Hotel is clean, comfortable and quiet. Offers a good restaurant/bar and has friendly staff. Hotel also provides tours (sand buggy and Islas Ballistas) but do a quick walk through the town to see what else is offered as prices change by the day and you end up on... More

The hotel has a lot of character and is located a street back from the Oasis where the majority of the restaurants and bars are. The room was very comfortable and the staff friendly. The main issue was the noise. You could clearly hear people partying at the Oasis until the wee hours, once they stopped the roosters and dogs... More

Huacachina is certainly an interesting location and the Huacachinero is no exception. It's location right next to some huge sand dunes makes for lovely views, and the pool/bar area is wonderfully exotic and laid-back. The staff was immensely friendly, and they were very helpful with any questions I had. Nice little shop next door too which makes it easy to... More

Hotel's location is very centric, right on the sand dunes. The hotel room was ok nothing fancy, room was clean but bathroom was not so clean. The sand dune buggies are fun but to be honest the area around it is so sketchy and dirty and there is trash in the dunes. I recommend to skip Huacachina and have the... More

Believe all the good reviews! Lovely place and a great place to rest while travelling. Breakfast and pool was so lovely. Rooms are clean-hot showers and loads of towels. Didn't book the sandboarding with the hotel as there are so many in the town to get cheap. Left our bags in hotel as we checked out. Allowed to use pool,... More

The hotel is a typical short stay hotel for guests who want to go for a buggy tour and a beautiful sunset from the steep high dune right behind the hotel. The view from the backyard with the swimming pool on the dune is beautiful. Going up for the sunset is a kind of challenge but worthwhile. The rooms are... More

the rooms were clean, the breakfast was amazing, the place is relaxing and peaceful. There is a nice swimmingpool, the view from the garden was the sand dunes where you see some guys doing sand boarding.

This is the first negative review that I’ve even written but I felt compelled after a bad experience of booking a tour via this hotel. I stayed for two nights in El Huachachinero will my three friends and was very impressed by the hotel. Lovely setting, spacious and clean rooms, good food etc… Upon check-out, I asked the receptionist if... More
