Desert experience in style.Posted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: Beautiful views of the desert, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, excellent and large number of tours included.
Cons: Indoor pool spa jets not working and need to be fixed.
Location: Stunning desert landscapes (including 'moon valley'), salt flats and lagoons, geysers, wild vicuna, foxes, flamingos and other birds, star gazing.
Great tours in good company (very small groups) with people from all over the world. Friendly and knowledgable staff guided us through stunning desert landscapes. Good food choices and beautifully appointed and comfortable rooms.

Tierra de AtacamaPosted Dec 23, 2013
Pros: The design of this hotel is amazing and what's more amazing is that they actually pulled it off in such a remote location.
Cons: A more relaxed welcome. A list of tours by other service providers for example riding a motorcycle or quad to Tara and a longer stay at the location.
Location: Make sure you do the sunset horse ride to Death Valley. The geysers, way too many people but the landscape and wildlife made up for this big time.
After the flight to Calamma and transfer to the Hotel all we wanted was the bathroom and a glass of water. However the Manager was more concerned about the Hotels indemnity insurance, copies of our Visa and passport documents than our welfare. In addition, no copy of what we signed was provided. However this was a minor glitch as my partner and i thoroughly enjoyed the six nights we stayed here. The all inclusive package is great, the guides, bar and wait staff were fantastic. The food is also very good, why they offer fish in the desert was odd, always go for the land based offerings, the lamb cutlets were just superb! My partner disliked the colour of the pool water, to me it was fine considering you're in the desert. I was told that the Atacama experience is like diving with the whale sharks at Ningaloo, a once a lifetime opportunity. My friends were, 'right on the money'. In addition, we met some amazing people.

Impressive!!Posted Jan 29, 2013
Pros: The design of the Hotel and how it captures the wonderful views.
Cons: Limited food menu.
Location: Just ideal & being a couple of minutes out of town is actaually a good thing.
Sensational Resort / Hotel with amazing views and first class facilities. The rooms are well designed, [ including both an indoor and outdoor shower ] very realxing lounge / liesure areas to read, play board games or have a quiet drink. The spa & pool area is very impressive and provides everything that you need, including super comfy pool furniture. Food was generally good, selection sometimes limiting and lacking a little in creativity. All the tours / outings were wonderful and the guides were very helpful and informative. Yes its on the expensive side but in the end worth it.
