“Beautiful Ornate Hotel. A Little Tired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

You can see that this place used to be the 'Grand Old Dame' of Huacachina, but many, many years ago. The building is still beautiful, with lovely fixtures and a super bar with a 'gentleman's club' air about it. The rooms are spacious and clean. But the place is a little ragged these days.

They charge present day rates however and for that I'd expect good working internet and good friendly service, neither of which we received.

Fine for a short stay, and really a beautiful setting, just don't expect the frills customers in it's heyday would have received!

This is the hotel which lays right in the oasis of Huacachina, next to the lagoon and surrounded by dunes on three sides. It's composed of an internal plaza where rooms are located. Ours was outside, a huge and very comfortable suite. The hotel features a pool which wasn't heated up so it's not as comfortable to use at night. They arrange for boogie rides and sand-boarding.

Breakfast was excellent and so was food, but service in the restaurant in the evening proved to be very slow, even though the place was almost empty.

Scenery is breathtaking and it allows for a quite stroll around the lagoon at any time. There are some bars that can be heard from room 3 on the outside. They stopped early during the week but could get noisy for rooms 2 and 3 on a weekend; the rest of the rooms shouldn't have this issue.

I'm giving 4 stars to this hotel because we couldn't get wi-fi in our room and while in the main building, it was extremely slow. Also because we didn't have hot water during an entire night. However, I do recommend this hotel; if you are visiting the area, this is the only hotel looking at the lagoon.

Positives:
- Location is perfect, right at the oasis in the center of the village,
- Our room was located in a colonial building and had a seperate seating room and bedroom
- The courtyard was very nice
- We got a free pisco sour upon arrival

Negatives:
- The swimming pool was a bit old and we would not use it,
- The bathroom was a little old, but worked fine and was clean,
- We got a good deal online, but regular prices were a little bit too high for what you get.

the beds DO ARE comfortable and clean rooms, towels. Hot water was not ALWAYS available. Internet can only be accessed by one person at the time and connection is very slow. THE POOL was very nice and the food from the restaurant EXCELLENT, though service does leave you wanting. No one offered to help with luggage upon arrival though we were a group of girls (most teens and just a few in our twenties) with heavy stuff. When trying to serve myself a coffee, a lady snapped at me telling me it was this much money! (I guess since I was in my sweatpants and I'm peruvian she thought I couldn't afford it). The location do is good but really, they could hire people less cocky and more service-oriented!

Interesting location @ border of oasis. Does have a pool, but slightly under serviced for some time. Hotel restaurant is too expensive and service takes long. Walk 75m for excellent and cheap restaurants. Spacy place and rooms are okay. Good bathroom. Fog in the morning is romantic.

Mossone is one of the nicest places I have been too, although I have spent most of my trip in hostels. The rooms were large and very clean as was the bathroom. If you are in need of a hot shower, air conditioning, and quiet, this is definitely the place to go. Located right by the Laugna. A very nice pool right across.
You are awarded with a delicious complimentary Pisco sour although compare to the other bars, it is more reasonably priced.
The downside was the wifi. Although the manager stated it was, ´very good´´, I had difficulties with it all the time. It would always lock me out and wouldn´t always recognize the password. I eventually gave up and used the computers in their business area. It is also a bit more on the expensive side, but then again, I was used to hostel prices.
A definite stay if you have the extra money and in need of some privacy and air conditioning
