We went to Santiago to visit my daughter who is studying in Chile and decided to take a trip to La Serena. The map on Trip Advisor showed this place to be just on the outskirts of La Serena. We rented a car and headed East and soon realized this place was about 100 km from La Serena. We decided to just enjoy the Chilean countryside and finally arrived at Pisco Elqui. What a beautiful place it turned out to be !! The cabin was clean and breakfast was wonderful The night sky was stunning. There were so many stars and I had never seen the Milky Way that clear with naked eyes before We went horseback riding in Elqui valley and visited an observatory, highlight of the trip.

I only booked a room here because the map in TA was wrong. Good thing that I didn't know because this place was well worth the drive from La Serena. There is no Internet access in the cabin but you can sit in a very comfortable reception area with free WiFi access. But then again, the whole place is so peaceful that we just sat and relaxed, not caring about the internet access. The owner, Jaime, was always available ready and eager to help and went out of his way to arrange an observatory tour for us at the very last minute. If you are looking for a get-away in a quiet peaceful charming town, you can't go wrong here. We saw other cabanas in the area but none looked as nice as this place.

It was very hard to find a clean hotel anywhere between Santiago to La Serena so finding this place was heavenly. It was clean, comfortable and very relaxing. There is internet access in the main areas just not in the cabanas. The views are spectacular. The night time sky is amazing. It was winter time and it we were traveling with a 2 year old. The room temperature were comfortable for us. The only drawback for us was that the kitchen was closed during our stay but breakfast was provided and it was good - dulce de leche panqueques! Overall a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Our cabana had a fully equipped kitchen.

Stayed here just one night (book ahead in high season!) and considered locking ourselves in to avoid leaving! Wonderful cabaña, private, breakfast delivered, amazing views from pool area and decks. Highly recommend Worth higher cost for a splurge.

This was one of the highlights of our 2 week Chilean trip. The drive from La Serena was became more and more scenic as we headed up from the airport. A good place to stop for lunch is in Vicuna at Halley's.

The town of Elqui, narrowly stretched along about a mile of highway, is totally charming with many restaurants and pleasant walks.

Our cabana at Misterios was incredible. We had our choice of several, and took one about 3/4 of the way to the pool. The room was a high roofed adobe square, well shaded with a comfortable private patio for reading or relaxing. The breakfast discreetly brought to our room each day was exquisite full of fresh local fruits and other ingredients.

The pool was very pleasant, even in March. The main house, (an old colonial mansion) along the road above the cabanas contains a sitting area with satellite TV, a bar and a restaurant. Unfortunately the chef was on vacation the week of our stay, so we can't speak for the food, but the atmosphere, with an outdoor terrace, was beautiful.

Jaime, the owner, was friendly and ubiquitous, equally fluent in Spanish and English. He is an accomplished businessman, who escaped the city life in Santiago about 15 years ago. While there is no wireless internet, he graciously made his office computer available to guests upon request.

There is convenient parking in a gated lot by the main house. It is locked after 10PM or so., but can be opened for guests.
