“Volcano view.”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. Complimentary drinks were nice, but I would've preferred something other than Pisco Sour. The highlight was the breakfast and volcano view. Will definitely go back in the future.

Great staff, friendly and courteous. Excellent food and Pisco Sours. Yum! Nice touch to be greeted with a complimentary drink after our long journey. Loved having the mini kitchen with the kids. Loved the rustic decor, but our mattress could have been more comfy. Huge windows and sliding glass door out to the beautiful garden area. The volcanoe views were great. Some days more clear than others. Easy walk to town and great restaurants and shopping. The buses were fun to take into Puerto Montt.

Room Tip: The last rooms near the large grassy area are awesome. Feels so private and great views.

We missed our flight connection in Santiago after we returned from Easter Island. We ended up spending the night in Santiago instead of here . We stayed here one night after touring Chiloe Island.
Our room was in the basement but the view was fantastic. We could see the boats cruising in the water plus we had an excellent view of the volcano (Mt. Osorno). Flowering plants surrounded the hotel. We had an extra room with a large flat screen TV set, which I considered an extra treat. We had 2 TV sets. Our bed was comfortable. Although it was very cold outside, we were very comfortable inside.
Across from the front desk was a bulletin board that had announcements and schedules posted. I was at a lost as to how we would get to the pier for our lake crossing until I read our names and schedule of pick up the next morning.
The free breakfast was good. Our dinner was good although a little expensive.
I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the view of the water.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights on summer. Even tough the nights were at -5c we were never cold inside of the building. The place is so comfy, clean and classy. A bit pricy yes, but it is worth the bucks.

......we could have seen the main volcano from our bedroom window !


Large lakeside hotel with rooms overlooking the lake . A short walk in to the center of town but all the better for that as it was quiet .

As other reviews have noted this is a large hotel with lots of large parties travelling together. We didn't seem to suffer much as a result because most arrived late and left early . Breakfast was OK , possibly not as good as some hotels further north but reasonably varied and fresh .

We ate in the hotel restaurant one night . A reasonably priced buffet option Including a glass of house wine .
Would recommend the sea food restaurant ( Casa Valdes ? ) 50m from the hotel on the route in to town , the fish was amazing .

Note if you go down to floor no one there is a direct route out to the lakeside that avoids walking right round the hotel from the front entrance .

Dear guest: Thank you for sharing your comments on TripAdvisor. Indeed, our hotel has an excellent location in front of Lake Llanquihue and there is a secure back door access for guests to come and go without having to pass through the hotel lobby.
Our hotel is only 5 minutes away from town, and walking along the lakeshore is a relaxing and safe way to get there. Thank you again, and greetings from Puerto Varas.

We had two stays in this hotel during a tour of the Chilean Lake District. It is clean, large and somewhat impersonal as a result. Cabana del Lago sprawls down the hillside alongside Lake Llanquihue. There are some amazing views across the lake towards the three volcanoes which dominate the skyline and the sunsets can be startling, too.
Reception and the hotel entrance is at sixth floor level. Our first room was on the ground floor which meant a traipse to a lift or stairs at the northern end of the building. The room was large with two double beds and had a coating on the window to stop passers-by looking in. The hotel is keen to parade its green credentials but the really dim lighting in the corridor made for a dismal feel. A useful bonus here was a back exit at lake level which avoided a longer walk into town which would be involved by using the front door. On our second visit we were in a sixth floor room into which a third, single, bed had been squeezed which made things a bit cramped. The extra bed also meant that the other beds had been moved so that the bedhead light switches were not in a position for use.
The hotel has a large number of rooms and is used by coach parties as a result. The luggage from these and their gatherings for arrival and departure can block large parts of the reception area from which the dining room and other facilities are accessed.
This rush hour of folk caused problems with breakfast which although plentiful and varied suffered from the number of people trying to eat at the same time. On one occasion, we left our coffee and (rather weak) juice at our table in order to fetch some fruit. On our return the table had been cleared and someone else had taken it over.
We ate a dinner here which was fine but unexceptional. Two meals in town were far more memorable. The swimming pool and changing facilities (with towel and obligatory bathing cap) worked well, if a little chillily on the day we used it. Service in the bar was attentive.
Overall the quality of the hotel is fine. It is clean and comfortable but suffered during our stays from the rush hours caused by coach parties. It is within reasonable walking distance of the town and provides a good base for exploring the area.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views. The sixth floor north wing suffers from the traffic of visitors maki...

Dear guest: We thank you for your comments on TripAdvisor. In an effort to help protect the environment and use energy in the best way possible, our hotel has adopted practices that include using electricity as carefully as possible and for this reason we keep lighting in the halls tenuous. Our breakfast buffet, one of the most complete and varied in town, is served in our restaurant. To make our guests’ stay more comfortable, we have extended opening hours of our breakfast service during high season to prevent overcrowding. Again, we thank you for your comments and have taken note of your suggestions. Greetings from Puerto Varas.
