Undoubtedly the worst gastronomic experience we have had in the south of Chile. An overpriced fixed menu (CLP 15.000, US 30) offered rotten fish and meat with a cheap "tuna" salad. Service was despicable and management inexistent. We are Chileans who have visited the south for over 30 years--we will never come back here. STAY AWAY.

It is an over rated hotel. Perhaps it was a great place many years ago when the Prince of Wales stayed so many years ago. They allow buses to park in front of the hotel entrance at 6:00 am and run waiting for a group to have breakfast for 45 minutes. You can not call the front desk to complain...

This hotel has a restaurant, besides it proposes some "cabanas". I did have lunch at the hotel, which is rather expensive for the complete menu (25 USD, 3 courses), even though the service is quite correct and nice. I visited the cabanas, just being curious for a future vacation, but the price required (160 USD per day, 4 persons cabana),...

I stayed here for just one night as part of a large group on a charity cycling trip. The view was a real highlight, looking out from the balcony of our cabin over the beautiful gardens and across the lake with the volcanoes in the distance was incredible. The cabin itself was quite basic with a tiny bathroom, a double...

This hotel was recommended by a friend who stayed here in 2005 and apparently they haven't renovated it at all - it is quite run down for the price you pay. The location itself is awesome! very isolated and with an INCREDIBLE view of Lago Llanquihue and Volcano. But we had: stained sheets, dirty floors, fireplace didn't work (gets cold...

Unfortunately we did not check Trip Advisor before booking at this hotel due to the rave reviews in both Frommer and Fodor.What a mistake! The hotel in November 2011 was run down, dirty and poorly maintained. We booked the King's Suite well in advance and when we arrived the room was not ready. They actually lied to us, saying that...

I´d have to say this place was the biggest dissapointment of our trip to Chile. We selected this hotel due to rave reviews on this site, and a Frommer´s guide book. While the location was lovely, the cabana we were to stay in was VERY run down, dirty and not at all like the website depicted. The carpet was so...

Terrific place, make sure to get one of the bigger cabanas directly at the lake with a superior view (even if they charge you a bit more). The cabins are a dream and the surrounding area is just stunning. Only the food is not as good as the view. Cheers Giedre & Christian

This is a charming little hotel in Puerto Octay, with incredible views of Llanquihue Lake & the Osorno volcano. The rooms are very large, spacious, & well-maintained. The grounds are beautifully maintained & landscaped. The hotel restaurant is large with amazing views. The staff are efficient, but not terribly friendly. The food in the restaurant is so-so. There is even...

The Centinela used to be a stately home visited by George IV when Puerto Octay was in its heyday. It's situated on a little island in Lago Llanquihue which is reached by road - it's an impressive drive. The rooms aren't cheap but are really amazing, historic and spacious with beautiful views across the lake. We stayed in a Cabana...
