My husband and I stayed in the cabañas of Hotel Poblado Kimal for 4 nights. The cabañas are spacious, clean, with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms.
Breakfast was quite good and filling, with plenty of options. The hotel is right off the main road and is within walking distance to everything in the small town. The front desk staff od the hotel were also friendly and helpful with all of our many questions.
A few things should be noted if you stay here. I am a night-shower person, however if you are the same I would recommend you change your ways during your stay here. At night there is little to no hot water; however in the mornings you will be perfectly happy with the temperature. A minor thing, but one I wish I had known before (as I tried for 3 nights to get a hot shower).
Also, there tends to be a great deal of noise from the main street and bar/restaurant area. We were there during Fiesta Patrias, so some of it could have been attributed to this; however I've noticed many of the other postings here mention this. We were both so tired from each day's excursions that it was not very bothersome. However, if you are a light sleeper, be aware.
Lastly, the wifi is terribly slow. We were able to pick up a signal in our cabaña; however it was almost the equivalent of dial-up connection. Once again, a minor problem considering you probably did not travel to Chile to be on the web all the time, but good to know if you think you are going to spend a large amount of time blogging about your trip.
Overall, we had a very good experience at this hotel and would recommend it to others. Mind the few suggestions and notes I've made and you should be happy here.
