We paid a very expensive price and it was not justified at all. Every night we had noise problems in the neighboring domes, despite complaining at the reception, they did nothing. The domes are very basic, and the pool was closed for a full day. Bad place, definitely terrible price / quality ratio. I would not recommend it to my worst enemy.

We had high expectations from this hotel having seen beautiful pictures. We arrived after a long drive and were given a very lukewarm welcome. We had dinner on site but we had to ask to be served and had to go into the kitchen to ask for dessert. Food was nice but cold. Dirty plates were left on adjoining tables so it wasn’t the nicest place to sit. We stayed in unit 11. Bed was comfy but there was no hot water. It was very tatty. The door was difficult to close properly. Anyone over 6ft couldn’t sit on the toilet as it was too close to the wall. Service was unfriendly with staff chatting or on the phone. We ended up moving to another hotel which was cheaper, more friendly and much more comfortable. Why didn’t we complain? Life’s too short. And they wouldn’t be able to move the toilet. But do go to Pisco Elqui. It’s fabulous. Just don’t stay here.

Can't speak for the domos as we stayed in the cabins but I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cabins 10 and 11 were in pretty good condition, definitely no mold or non-working lights as mentioned in other reviews. Hot water worked in the shower and the cabins were clean, and the air conditioning worked great in the Chilean summer. Reception staff were very friendly. We did spend some time in the reception dome to use the wifi and staff did constantly come to ask if we needed anything. Dinner wasn't available every night but there are plenty of restaurants in Pisco Elqui. Breakfast was enjoyable and they make excellent scrambled eggs. We were fortunate to schedule an astronomy tour with the local guide Claudio which was great. He's knowledgeable and obviously very passionate about astronomy. If you are into astrophotography the hills behind the cabins are great for getting great pictures at night. All in all this is a lovely property and we would stay here again if we come back to the Elqui valley.

This was my 2nd time at the Domos, as I had the luck of going when they were "young and wild". Now it's a grown-up guy, ready to take you through a really cool journey. If you're taking the decision to visit Elqui, you might be driven by one of these: sky & stars, trekking & hiking, nature & horses, pachamama. Then, this "Domos" option will help you in anything you need to make it enjoyable. This time I stayed at the (newer) "Cabañas", which I didn't exist over 13 years ago, and really liked it! Almost pure wood & glass loft-like structure, covered by the mountains, with WIDE windows to enjoy the sky while you're laying on your XL perfectly-white bed. And the coolest surprise was the top terrace, amazing to chill at the end of the afternoon to enjoy the pink sky or spending the night looking at the stars - the best sky-view you'll ever have for sure. One thing to improve? Bathroom. It's good, but could be great. A narrow rectangle didn't help to feel it as it spacious as it should, having one wall always too close (including while you're seated...) A quick shortage of hot water was promptly fixed and everything else ran smoothly during the 4 days I stayed at. Remember that you're in a kind of middle-of-nowhere valley with a lot of dust, dirt, insects and real-nature surrounding you, so the space might not be spotless. For me, it was OK - even if you're a clean-freak-person it's possible to relax and accept a bit of dirt or mud that you brought in your shoes. Assessing which one was the best discovery I made: the home-made food! It didn't exist and I was positively impressed. A young chef (Juan Pablo) coming from southern-Chile & Santiago, vegetarian-passionate, is responsible for this really nice proposal of tastes, dishes and some inspiration from the area. On my retina, I'll keep the hummus, polenta, grilled vegetables and brownie. Fresh, balanced, not over-seasoned, deep and natural flavors. I liked it so much that I spent the 4 nights eating there (also spoiled by Juan Pablo's assistant and Ximena's wines)! Breakfast is good, not expecting a super buffet from a BIG/expensive place. Fruits, juices, h&cheese, eggs, some yummy sweets and the star: homebaked bread! Small addicitive buns! The place it's located at around 4km from the center of Pisco Elqui, where you'll find all the options for tours: horseriding, biking, trekking, stars (observatory, horseride, bike, trekking...) But I chose Ximena's (Hotel Manager) help to make "the magic happen". Everything was properly coordinated and made me feel really at home. On a relaxed way I managed to book everything via Ximena or Eliana (receptionist/concierge) and it was perfect. Horseriding during the afternoon by Cochiguaz & reaching the river (highly recommended) and deep-tissue massage that turned-out into an energy-therapy that took place in a bambu-mini-dome in the middle of the nature, enjoying the birds and insects in the afternoon: wow, simply thankful for it! (and it's in the same "Domos" area) For me it was a perfect scape-valve from busy & strange city-days. If you're looking for a real detox time, especially mental-detox, don't hesitate to visit Elqui and stay at "Domos" - or "Cabañas" that I loved! Thanks to everyone up there and hope to visit soon! Keep it up and improving! PS. Don't miss the most incredible raisins that you'll ever have in your life right in front of the "Domos". Also ask Ximena's local-products tips: jams and Chilean traditional dulce de leche made by Domos' gardener's wife!

Don't recommend visiting this place, don't trust the pictures. The domes and cabins where in terrible condition, very dirty, let down and furniture in bad shape. From the reception to the accommodation is 15-20 min walk up a dirt slope. Staff was unfriendly and with low disposition to help. My parents visited from Mexico and wanted to explore Valle del Elqui. We had a reservation made here based on the pictures but did not check online reviews. Upon reaching this place, they felt cheated, as pictures paint a different story, perhaps they are form long time ago. They ended up going to a different place. Don't recommend.

Hi Stephan, we are working on remodeling and getting our domes in better shape, but we have plenty actual pictures on our Facebook, Instagram and Google. We hope in the future you could give us a second chance, staying here is really beautiful, the landscapes, the stargazing, the nature around us... everything! Thank you for your feedback, best regards.
