It was our first time in Puertecillo and despite the fact that it is a little difficult to get there, the hotel staff did more than enough to help us to get there. They gave us a map with instructions and even photos of the most important instructions. The hotel owners are the main staff and they are awesome. Beautiful...

This a great getaway with excellent service and amenities considering the location. Puertecillo is a small and remote surf town without many options to stay. The property, though pricey, is an excellent option for a weekend (or more if you can) stay whether you want to surf, bike, walk, or just relax. We especially enjoyed the heated swimming pool.

This is an amazing escape from Santiago close to Puertecillo. Tomás and Mariela are amazing hosts. The architecture and decor of the lodge is amazing. In the evening they will light up the fire pit and sitting outside watching the stars is the ultimate relaxation. Unfortunately, when we were visiting the Chef was sick, so I can not comment on...

If you're looking for a few days of absolutely nothing apart from good company, great nature and a little bit of luxury, you've found it. My wife and I spent 2 nights here and loved it. We came on a dark rainy night and almost thought we were lost (it's a bit of a trip on the gravel roads), but...

I recently went here with my parents and fiance. It's a lovely place. My parents stayed in a private suite and my fiance and I stayed in one of the 4-bed "hostel-type" rooms (luckily with no other roomies). You could see that they really thought out the design of the lodge. Each of the bunk beds had a little shelf...

I went with my boyfriend celebrating our aniversary as a surprise from him and I really loved it. From all, I'd like to enhace de comfort of the lodge, the familiarity of the owner (who was always there, sharing with us and the others guest, paying attention to everything and to each one, it was perfect). I also liked very...

“The rooms in the main building are a bit loud considering the wood construction. If you can, go for the private bungalows.”

“On the rucalodge.cl website, you can rent out individual beds in the 4-bedroom rooms, kinda like a hostal, if you don't mind potentially sharing a room. The suite on the ground floor has a private terrace.”
