The hotel is average at best. There were issues with water supply. There are too many mosquitos in the room. No hair dryer provided. The restaurant is ok. The breakfast is fine. The staff are pretty friendly.

I stayed here for a second time and it's worth it. It's lovely. Clean rooms, well decorated, comfortable beds, nice view . The pool is nice and they have a ping pong table. Although years ago the food from the hotel's restaurant was amazing, this time the food wasn't good.

The hotel was very nice for Huacachinero. The staff were very professional and friendly, provided additional towels and also kept our passport/monies locked up while we were out. The pool/outdoor area is amazing, well kept, and has a great view. The restaurant in the hotel is great and well priced - the food is some of the best we had... More

The hotel was basic but nice. I'd say the outdoor area is a selling point for the hotel. There's a nice pool and the restaurant is really nice too. The service at the restaurant is good. The out door area looks back onto a huge sand dune. We took the time to climb it- word of advice, don't do it... More

In Ica for just 1 night - the hotel room was clean with a lovely hot shower - very simple - no TV, no hairdryer but the vista of the sand dunes is spectacular! Literally an oasis in the middle of a desert. The reception staff were very helpful with booking the sand buggy tour at sunset - an adrenaline... More

El Huacachinero was a nice hotel in the oasis of Huacachina just steps from the sand dunes. Swimming pool looking to the giant sand dune was cool. I liked the restaurant serving traditional peruvian food. The room was well decorated and clean although it was a bit noisy due to its location close to the reception. Complimentary wireless internet connection... More

We were with GAdventure and just passing by. Only spent a 4 hours over there using the pool and having lunch. Having said that I think I would have loved a night there. Hotel looks amazing modern and a lovely swimming pool with a very high sand dune over the place. For lunch I had some sort of Peruvian style... More

We only stayed here for one night. Hotel was okay. Staff weren't great. The friendliness seem to disappear once we had booked a tour. Didn't like the fact they email you to say beware of taxi scams and then offer to pick you up. Then they charge you more than what it would have cost to get a taxi yourself.... More

The hotel is very comfortable, clean and cozy. Everything went pretty well on our trip. The staff is very nice and friendly. Mr. Big Willy who is a very cool guide was designated by the hotel to follow our group adventures and we had a great time with him. Breakfast is simple but very good.

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
