The central tree-lined courtyard is beautifully decorated with colorful local items, a bi-level pool, ample seating, and bar service. The restaurant features a wood accent and has an open feeling; the food is very fresh and very good.

Loved it! Amazing staff and beautiful boutique hotel with the best location. Only gripe was internet was extremely slow and intermittent at times— other than that small detail the property is perfect for anyone looking for R&R in between adventures in San Pedro de Atacama! Pricey, but worth it.

We loved the individual little ‘huts’ and our little fire in our room. It was so peaceful yet close to the main streets of San Pedro. Loved the outside breakfast - just take a coat. The staff were all lovely. It had a very unique feel. It is a small hotel with only 12 units so it’s never noisy or busy - just perfect. If you want a restful, quiet haven to come back to at the end of the day in the desert then this is the place. We loved it. Thank you for a very memorable stay.

Loved this hotel and town
We are travelling for nearly 5 weeks around Peru and Chile and we booked all accommodation etc ourselves, this was one of those fist pump moments hotels where you knew you had made a great choice, if anything, it exceeded our expectations. We left early each morning and missed breakfast but they gave us lunch packs instead. Service was fabulous, location perfect, and we loved San Pedro Atacama, don’t miss it and make sure you allocate enough time here. The desert is diverse, arid, beautiful and this is the best hotel in town.
