We stayed for one night and it was really awesome. Domo was wonderful and cool, it needed all the windows open to fill it with fresh air but it was wonderfully cool to stay there. We slept with the roof hatch open and it was wonderful to wake up and see stars as i was falling asleep. The observatory tour...

We took one of the cabins for one night. We left due to illness which had nothing to do with the hotel. However, I have to say that I was very disappointed. The accommodation is very basic. There is the usual rustic Chilean disposal of toilet paper, which takes some adjusting too. There is no hot water, we could only...

We were not planning on staying another night in the valle de elqui but driving past this place caught our eye and we went in and inquired and ended up booking a room (not the dome because it was winter, but the room w/the window over the bed that reveals the sky!) It was peaceful, great star-gazing site, yummy breakfast,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
