Pretty much agree with all recent reviews....helpful staff, rustic, authentic charm, swimming pool. We had our own car so could get into town for supper or shopping. The alternative is that you walk...it's 10/15 minutes but when it's dark you need a phone flashlight or a torch. For £150 a night I think the towels should be better quality as...

Really good hotel but with USD 150 per night way too expensive. Nothing was wrong: Clean rooms, good quality, friendly staff. But: 150 USD per night and room. This is way too much for a OK desert resort.

Lots of individual rooms in the well presented grounds, each with their own style. Ours had a couple of beds on concrete platforms and a nice bathroom with a shower over the bath and plenty of hot water. There was no air con, but a large fan was provided and also a table and chairs in a shaded outdoor area....

Individual 'huts' are placed around the grounds. Rooms are well-presented, very clean and the shower is fine with hot water coming through quickly. There are large pump dispensers for all toiletries - shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and handwash. Comfortable beds and soft towels, no aircon but a large fan was left in the wardrobe area in the bathroom....

A wonderful place to stay! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Rooms were interesting, clean, and comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Food was better than other places we ate in the north of Chile. Pool area was excellent, my kids enjoyed it greatly.

Absolutely loved our three night stay at this beautiful hotel. The rooms are arranged around the grounds and give the impression of adobe village buildings. We had a superior room which was a very good size, very clean and comfortable. The room had simple decorations and terracotta colours. The bathroom was also a very good size with a large step...

We spent three nights here. It is a very relaxing place to stay. All the buildings are adobe in the local style. This is very charming but also practical. The temperature in the desert ranges from quite cold at night to hot during the day but the thick walls meant that the temperature inside our room stayed much the same....

We had stayed at Awasi for 3 nights, did a trip to Salta, and stayed here one night before heading to Patagonia. Although it does not have a private guide and the luxury of Awasi, this was a nice stay. Large, clean, and modern rooms and facility. Great staff. We had an excellent dinner. A lively and festive crowd. And...

Overall this property was very good - large grounds with well maintained gardens, comfortable rooms with good beds and large well appointed bathrooms, good breakfast and helpful staff. The downside was that there is no air conditioning in the rooms and at night it gets hot. Opening the windows invites in noisy mosquitos. There was a portable fan but it...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away on a gentle stretch of land in the outskirts of San Pedro, surrounded by the quiet presence of the Andes, Altiplanico San Pedro faces the impressive Licancabur Volcano, with a unique design inspired in the style of an Altiplano village. Enjoy the famous Atacama sunsets and relax from the smoldering sun in the fresh covers of our private terraces and beautiful swimming pool after a day exploring the driest desert in the world. The hotel was developed following the concept of visual silence, the eye registers the hotel in its totality included in the in the immensity of the Atacama desert. ... more   less
