    Wonderful Place to Relax and Have Fun!

    We stayed at the Hotel Puclaro during our recent trip to Chile to view the eclipse, and had the best time! The hotel is situated in a gorgeous, natural area, and though we are not windsurfers (we can imagine how fabulous this hotel would be if we were) we loved how connected to the outdoors this hotel is. The rooms (called "cubes") are small like advertised but they were big enough for the two of us, and very clean and comfortable with excellent mattresses, luxurious pillows, 100% cotton sheets and gorgeous views of the lake below. We used the shared kitchen which was well organized and fully stocked with basics like coffee, tea, salt, oil, sugar, etc. and enjoyed connecting with other guests in the common areas. We also loved sitting in the hot tub at night and staring at the Milky Way and Southern Cross above. What a treat! The hotel was run by a lovely couple who made sure we had everything we needed, and we are grateful to them for providing us with such a comfortable and memorable stay during our trip. We definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for an experience that gives you indoor comfort with full connection to the great outdoors. It's a great place to "get away from it all."

    Fantastic stay in the Elqui Valley

    Amazing stay at hotel puclaro. This is a gem hidden near the best lake of chile to kite surf. The rooms are super cute, clean and have everything that you need. The vibe is awesome and staff super helpful. We wish we could have stayed longer.

    Incredible amazing views!!

    We happened upon this Gem of a location!! It sits on the side of a mountain with views of a most amazing Reservoir. You can lay on your bed and watch the kite surfers! The rooms are tiny but very clean. They are meant for only sleeping or resting. There is a delightful kitchen to prepare your own meals with a refrigerator and stove in a common kitchen. We are not kite surfers but they are wonderful to watch! Vicuna, Pisco, and vineyards are nestled in most valleys. The night sky and observatories are a must visit although happen late night early morning hours. Valle de Elqui is a beautiful place, Hotel Puclaro is a compliment to the area!!!! Never had a better view from my room!!!

    Muy bueno

    Un agrado el hotel. Las piezas son súper chiquititas, pero ideal para un par de días. La vista atómica y las áreas comunes estaban equipadídimas.
