We had 2 domos and one cabaña. I preferred the cabaña with it's 'sky light'. We were there during full moon. Fantastic to wake in the night and see the stars. This is a special place but I am sure not it's everyone's cup of tea. We loved the views, the quiet and the serenity. We enjoyed the star gazing... More

Stayed two nights in March. Purpose of trip was to see stars. Hotel is quite novel. Rooms are either plastic domes or chalets, providing views of the stars when in bed. We had a dome, which was really a big tent. There was little in the way of storage for clothes. It was a bit like camping. There was a... More

Enjoyed the drive through the Elqui valley to reach the Domos. Also took a detour to the Horcon market as we were early. We booked a cabana rather than a Domo and the night view from the balcony and the double bed was really out of this world. We specifically booked to go during the new moon and the stars... More

Orignally a good idea, to offer interested individuals a chance to learn more about the sky, the stars and the constellations. Unfortunately, that concept is not visibly embraced by its current management, which seemed to have lost all interest in its guests. We arrived early (around noon) and tired from the trip from Santiago. As the official check-in time is... More

A few kilometers out of town so quiet and relaxed. The valley is beautiful from the location. We had one dome and one cabana. Both were great. We found that both got really hot in the afternoon - and it was really hot in the afternoon. And the steps uphill to the cabanas were a bit steep. The small pool... More

Beautiful location, a bit i out of the way and hard to find - but spectacular for stargazing. It is fairly rustic with the cabins and quite a hike (no porters to help with luggage) but in all a beautiful and wonderful experience. The hot water is spotty but overall this is so worth it. Elqui is magical and Domos... More

We spent three nights at the Elqui Domos in January and, though we loved Pisco Elqui, we were eager to leave the hotel by our final day. Perhaps we had unreasonable hopes because this was our honeymoon, but we were disappointed by several aspects of our stay. We chose a cabana over a dome, thinking it would be a bit... More

We stayed here for one night on a trip through the Atacama. It's not easy to find, you need to keep going through Pisco Elqui and when you are just about to turn around because you think you've missed it then you're close. The mostly female staff are very helpful and friendly. At one point we were rather alarmed by... More

Great spot in the valley! The domes are just perfect, the roof opens and you get to stare outside with millions of stars from your own bed! The night we were there it was (thank god!) not cloudy, and through the hotel we booked the astronomy tour. At 11PM he picked us up and went to the top of the... More

We really liked this place. Didn't get to try the food besides the breakfast which is decent, buffet style. If you want to eat lunch there or dinner you have to reserve by a certain time (not sure what time). But I say try the restaurants in Pisco Elqui the ones we went to were great! It's a clean place...
