This hotel is a delight. Comfortable, spacious rooms (no 7 is particularly nice) with a good bathroom, set in a lovely garden. Excellent breakfasts delivered to your room. The lady who manages the hotel (sister of the owner) was friendly and helpful. Strongly recommended especially if you want to chill out in Elqui.

This was my third time in Pisco but in all the previous occasions, I camped with friends, so this one was a different experience. Pisco Elqui is famous for its landscape (dramatic scenery), stunning starry nights, Pisco and the hippie vibe. I was lucky enough to get a "cabaña" in this lovely Refugio. This place is definitely a jewel in...

Very nice place. Cabins were comfortable, and very clean. We actually found this hotel after staying a night at another hotel we did not like. Wished we had time to stay here longer. The person in charge went out of her way to help us. We were able to have a good nights rest here. The beds were very comfortable....

We traveled with our 2 children in early December, and fell in love with this place. Our cabana had 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with bunks, a small kitchen and living area and a lovely terrace. The pool was gorgeous (but bracingly cold -- wonderful for the time of year we were there!), there is...

Arriving at this 'hotel' around 7pm in broad summer daylight reminded us of the story of the Mary Celeste. The place was deserted. There were empty sofas on the veranda and signs to a Bar and Restaurant (indeed we had seen glowing accounts of the cooking in - clearly outdated - guidebooks), but these facilities appeared to be permanently closed....

we stayed on a 4 bed cabin. The place was incredible. The swimming pool has a great view of the valley and has a nice bar by the pool. My kids had a wonderful time. As this is a small complex (6 cottage) the place didn't look crowded. It is at a walkable distance of the center of the town...

Out stay here was magical - the room was gorgeous clean and simple, the pool was super relaxing, the view was great. The service is laid back and friendly. The linens were super high quality - this place would cost a lot more in the us. We hope to go back some day!

Misterios was quiet, sun-drenched, relaxing lodging option just out of the center of Pisco Elqui yet an easy walk to town. Clean and well-furnished cabanas are scattered amidst attractive plantings. We were in #6, which was among the most private with a glimpse of the pool. And of course mountains all around. And a clear, star-studded night sky. Breakfast is...

This place is ranked #1 in hotels but I think also can be considered "specialty lodging." We really enjoyed the individual cabana with attached outdoor seating. Cabana #5 is perfect for a couple as it is set back from the footpath and surrounded by lovely gardens. Breakfast was not elaborate but good - we appreciated the fresh fruit served every...

We spent two nights at this wonderful place, and we were pleased to have chosen it above other alternatives, we've been a long time visitors of Pisco Elqui and we were looking for the next place to spend our summer vacations and it seems we found it. We arrived rather late for lunch but the nice lady in charge of...

“As this is a hotel in a cliff you have to walk through a stair from the reception downhill to the pool. So you have to choose being close to the pool or the reception depending on the times you want to go up the stair”
