Loved staying in this row of Palafito houses on the river. Wooden features throughout. Crisp white bed linen, lots of hot water, v clean. Great views from communal breakfast room and roof terrace looking out over the tidal river estuary. Great breakfast with fresh baked bread and conserves packed with fruit plus fresh fruit salad. Traffic noise in our roadside... More

Palafito 1326 as it is called is located in Casto on the Island of Chiloe, is a great centralized location to enjoy all that the big Island has to offer. The rooms are simple but do not lack in modern day creature comforts. Quality and clean linens, blankets and hot showers are abundant. There are no TV's in the rooms... More

On the water, among many traditional palafitos. We had a charming room overlooking the water. There are less expensive rooms facing the street. The decor is lovely -- many handwoven textiles in natural colors of wool. The staff was gracious and wonderfully helpful. Good breakfast included in room rate.

This place has been very sympathetically restored. The rooms are not ornate but very comfortable and all rooms have a view over the water. The lounge and dining area are comfortable and warm, the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the view was superb. We ate breakfast watching dolphins and sea birds, it was a great experience.

We stayed three nights at Palafito 1326 in a lovely room overlooking the tidal area. The room was simple, but the decor was unique with handwoven wool throws and covered pillows. Breakfast was shared at a large common table with many choices, both hot and cold. We were so tired from all of our hiking that two evenings we just... More

We reserved through Booking.com and go confirmation as usual. During our staying in the country the local fishermen of Chiloe had serious problems with the fishing prohibited for a period so they had no income and received no help at first from the government. For is reason they blocked the island and you could only get there by plane. Coming... More

Now that a few months have passed, I can with a calm and collective demeanor write this review of the Palafito 1326. If I had composed this upon returning to the U.S. back in February 2016, my review would have contained coarse language and unclear thinking due to the horrible experience we had with this "establishment".

The hotel was unique, comfortable and nicely appointed. Views of the tides from our balcony were beautiful. Breakfasts included homemade breads and treats. The staff went out of their way to see to our comfort and enjoyment and when. I asked Rosario, the nice lady at the front desk for the cook's fabulous bread recipe, she graciously shared it. Gracias!

Small hotel just outside of Castro, simple but comfortable. Staff is super friendly and helpful, breakfast is served at communal tables in the front room. There is a rooftop terrace where you can enjoy a coffee while looking out on the river.

This hotel was originally a palafito, one of a chain of houses built on stilts, thus escaping taxation, since the houses were erected partially on land and partially out to sea, under the jurisdiction of the Chilean navy. I'd rate this particular hotel three stars, because while the room was spacious and had a private terrace overlooking the lagoon, it... More
