Organized comfort in a spectacular setting
Posted Dec 16, 2015
The hotel is one of only a few high-end hotels serving tourists to the Atacama Desert. The desert is an enormous attraction, uniquely beautiful, large and various. The hotel offers many excursions to different spots in and near the desert, at different times of the day (sunrise, sunset) and requiring different levels of physical exertion. The staff organizing these are well-informed and very helpful. The rooms are large, well-appointed, and comfortable. The food is as varied as it can be, given the need to bring all food into the hotel from areas distant to it. And the wine was excellent. The cost of staying is very high -- ameliorated a bit by the all-you-an eat, all-you-can drink, all-you-can see policies. But it seemed worth it to my wife and me. Internet access is spotty in the evening, but that shouldn't be a big deal.
