“Huilo Huilo Baobab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2011

Great destination hotel! We live in northern Chile so were able to book a package through LAN Chile Airline that included airfare, transportation from Temuco arpt to Huilo Huilo and back to arpt, all meals ordering off the Chef's Menu, and select 1/2 day excursions. Trip from Temuco to Huilo Huilo was a 2 hour scenic drive. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful upon arrival and our standard room had been upgraded to a superior which is a room with a balcony -- great view and very comfortable room. No air conditioning which could be a problem during summer but window opens as well as door to balcony and no bugs!! Sure you could request a fan from front desk if necessary. Restaurant service was excellent as was the food. Excursions were very good as were the guides. English speaking guides can be requested. There are two self-guided hikes by the hotel taking you by the Fuy river. There is a brewery across the road from the Baobab -- excellent beer! We scheduled the XL Condor canapy (zip-line) for the following morning. Guides were very good -- felt as safe as I could considering what it was I was doing. I've never experienced such a feeling before -- neat, neat experience!! My husband booked a volcano hike the following morning which was described as 4 hours but didn't include travel time to and from so keep that in mind. He loved it. I scheduled a botanical hike and very much enjoyed it. We didn't utilize any of the spa services. Meant to get to the pool but never made it. Weather in March (4th - 7th) was highs in the lows 80s and maybe 50s at night? Did get fog on one of the days but still very comfortable temps. Felt very comfortable in hiking clothes at restaurant -- not at all a stuffy place. Lots of excursions to pick from that you'll see upon arrival at the hotel. A truly wonderful destination experience -- loved every minute of it -- just don't have any complaints. We arranged with front desk for our transportation out the following day and no problems were encountered. We loved it and can't wait to return for a winter stay!

The hotel is fantastic. Beautiful wood everywhere, a spiral ramp that has all the rooms on it, a stream running through the floor and pretty views out of huge windows. We are in the lap of luxury in the middle of nowhere. We went up to the hotel’s roof to get the panoramic view of the area. It’s really stunning with the two snow peaked volcanoes in the distance.

There’s been wonderful attention to detail in making the hotel look very natural. It’s not “perfect”--you see a few cracks in the windows repaired by covering with branches and some insulation sticking out here and there --but on the whole it’s wonderful. It also seems to be under construction throughout the grounds, but the main hotel and pool are complete. The pools are great--one indoor and heated, one outdoor and two hot whirlpools.

The whole atmosphere is very relaxing.

We also booked two excursions with the hotel and had an excellent time on each--both were private.

This was the only hotel we stayed in that charged for Wi-Fi, though.

Had an overnight stop at the Hotel Boabab. It is an amazing building made almost completely of wood in the shape of an upturned cone with a spiral ramp running up the inside leading off to the rooms- think snail shell shape. Our room looked out over the snow capped volcanoes, and was well equiped and large enough. Bathroom too was well designed. Our only complaint was that it was too hot and with underfloor heating difficult to turn off. We ate good evening meal, and enjoyed the breakfast buffet.
The staff were helpful, but I was glad I have a little Spanish, as they spoke no English
Very convenient for catching the ferry at Puerto Foy
Don't miss visiting the Huilo Hulo waterfall- it was spectacular and hotel reception will give you free entry tickets

We stayed three nights at the Baobab hotel in Huilo Huilo, around three kilometers from the Pirihueico lake in Chile, surrounded by beautiful trees. The Baobab is an amazing place in all senses. The hotel is interesting, beautiful, comfortable and original. The rooms are very nice. We made three guided tours. The guides are young and enthusiastic. Everything is around eco-tourism. Walking in beautiful woods recognizing different plant species or following a beautiful river. Take good trekking shoes if possible. If not, sneakers with a non slippery sole will do. The food in the hotel was excellent but a little pricey and there are not other options. Everybody in the hotel was helpful and the service was very good.

  • Liked — The whole experience was great
  • Disliked — No other options where to eat
