This hotel is a great base in San Pedro de Atacama. It is about a 10 minute walk into the town and is also on the (dirt) road to other interesting sites in the area. The rooms were individual adobe type huts. They were comfortable if a dark and the lighting in the room was poor. However, as a base...

The rooms are adequate but there aren't any fans and the rooms get very hot. We were there at the end of January and it was probably the hottest and driest place we have ever been to and we have been the Sahara!! There was one small window in the bedroom room and one in the batthroom but I found...

A great place to start or end your trip to San Pedro de Atacama. Slightly out of town but can be in the centre by lot in <10 mins. The hotel itself is clean and well laid out. Each room has a spacious individual feel. Bathrooms have out and indoor showers. Free wifi in the lobby. Nice pool and hot...

The accomodations were comfortable and clean despite poor lighting in the room. The restaurant was adequate but not comparable to the Altiplanico on Easter Island. The service was uneven and depended on which person was working the desk

My wife and I spent 3 nights mid January in this delightful hotel, which is slightly out of the town, but a real oasis. Very comfortable rooms designed to match the environment. Good amenity areas: swimming pool with bar and eating area, nice reception area with good wi-fi and main bar area with lounge faciltiies. Restuarant serving good food. Excellent...

The hotel was lovely. Located an easy 10 minute walk from the "center of town," it was charming, immaculate, and quite cozy and private. The staff was excellent and most helpful. One minor issue was that the lights in the room are rather dim, a problem only at night. Restaurant in the hotel was very good. The breakfasts, which were...

Nice retreat in the gorgeous Atacama desert. Cute and quaint, and a lovely (very cold) pool to cool off in at the end of hot day. Beautifully designed resort and rooms. It would have been nice however if there was a fridge in the room to keep cold drinks in it. Service was mixed. While on the one hand, good...

We stayed for 3 nights in January, 2013 and it was one of the highlights of our trip. The architecture of the property is beautiful blended into its setting and the grounds are meticulously maintained. The staff at both the reception desk and restaurant was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious with two terraces and a roof top deck...

This hotel is a little bit out of the town centre so you have to walk about 10 minutes on a dusty road but we thought it was worth it. The hotel itself is a relaxing oasis with lots of local character and a small but delightful pool. The rooms are rustic, simple and simply furnished so if you are...

The hotel itself is lovely and quaint, using locally styled individual rooms it has a pleasant feel. It is a decent walk into town along an unlit dirt road, though you can use their bikes which makes it much more reasonable. The rooms were very hot and as another reviewer mentioned there is no air con or fan. We slept...

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
