We stayed here for 3 nights in August, and had a fantastic time. The staff were really welcoming and friendly, and rooms were a good size with sliding doors onto the pool area.
Being close to the airport (the fence is about 100 yards away!) is a bonus one one hand in you wont have a long transfer time, although it did seem to mean we were last to be picked up on most of our tours.
Although a bit further out of the centre than some places (20-30 mins walk), there are loads of taxis which can take you back for a fixed $2000 (about USD 4), so it was nice to wander in and then take a lift back when needed.
The pool was great, and I guess although it was winter when we went, it was a lot better weather than the UK, so we were delighted to basically have it to ourselves to relax after day trips.
Some reviews describe this as a B&B, but it is a proper hotel, although I am sure most people would want to eat in the centre if only in for a few days.
Breakfast was also better than most other places we stayed at during our time in Chile, with decent eggs cooked to order, and nice fresh juices. There was only about 5 other couples staying whilst we were there due to low season, so there was not too much elbowing each other for room as you sometimes get!
Overall we would happily stay here again if we are fortunate enough to visit this fantastic island again, and thank you for helping make it so memorable.
