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... More

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sofas on the veranda and signs to a Bar and Restaurant (indeed we had seen glowing accounts of the cooking in - clearly outdated - guidebooks), but these facilities appeared to be permanently closed....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... More

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... More

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... More

Very tidy rooms, delivers exactly as promised, good services, free WiFi, etc. The front desk clerck was very kind and dutiful, nice common areas, clean pool. The restaurant seemed very nice but we arrived late so could not dine there. Located centrally on Pisco Elqui, walking distance to most convinience stores, restaurants and pubs.

Simply put, Misterios is so wonderful that we, who usually spend the day touring, opted to spend most of our days right at our cabana! Being wowed by the colors of the mountains, the contrasting vineyards, the gorgeous natural looking landscape of the place, and our wonderful private cabana that overlooked the pool was enough for us. Delicious breakfasts delivered... More

“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”
