We stayed at the Vina Del Mar for a week......thank god the weather was good! We booked an 18-30's trip as it was cheap and yep, you get what you pay for!
Basically, this hotel is for people that only need a bed!, the restaurant was closed for the duration of our stay, the room was clean but the bathroom was of poor standard, ie-the tiles were cracked and the shower leaked and wasn't aimed very well, in other words you could of sat on the toilet for a shower!. The beds were rock hard and the kitchen facilities were fit for any boy scout, it was like camping indoors!. The only good thing about this hotel was the pool, it's huge and most of the time we (3 of us) had it to ourselves. Don't use the pool showers as they are freezing cold, however we had to use these as we weren't allowed late check out and we weren't getting picked up until late at night......this leads me on to being picked up late at night....we werent!...we hung around the hotel as instructed to by our reps and they never came, it ended up we had to get our own taxi to the airport where we were then met by the reps who looked a little sheepish. Apparently the bus driver wasn't prepared to drive up the hill and pick us up....(rubbish). All in all it was an ok holiday as we went for the sun and the night life which is excellent....if you stay at the vina del mar, don't expect any kind of luxury as there isn't any, the staff aren't helpful at all and you'll be lucky if the maid comes once a week.
