“Relaxing stay in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

Our family of 3 had a nice stay at hermansen cabanas and liked that we could self cater. The cabanas were recommended by friends who described them as little hobbit huts. We enjoyed sitting on our patio with a view of the ocean and although parts of the cabana were cramped we enjoyed our stay a great deal. The kitchen had all the basics and we had two rooms (one big, one small). We were in #14 and it only cost about $60cdn per night. They also have wi-fi.
Maitencillo was spectacular and reminded us of a Chilean version of Tofino, Canada.

We stayed in cabins 15 & 16 (which neighbour each other). Both are very cute inside & nicely furnished. Cabin 16 is probably the better of the 2 as it has higher ceilings and a slightly bigger seating area. Breakfast was basic, but sufficient. There are kitchen facilities in the cabins, so you could always cook your own breakfast too if you wanted. Wood fires in all the cabins were great too.
Staff don't speak much english, but it isn't that difficult to communicate. Waiters in the restaurant though did speak english.
The food in the restaurant is awesome, particularly if you get the selection plate for 2 or the fondue for dessert. Keep in mind it is closed on Sundays though. There are quite a few restaurants about a 5 mins walk down the beach though.
It was nice to get away from the city and stay in a nice chilled beach town. Lots of development going on around there too & I get the vibe it is quite happening in summer. There was also a surf school just down the road.
Make sure you go for a drive to Zappallar too and check out of the beautiful mansions by the beach.

Room Tip: The cabanas are scattered up the hill (all have sea views) which means you do have to carry your bag...

Once you enter the Cabanas Hermansen cabanas it gets very rustical, even more: you feel like being in the house of the Flintstones.

The hotel has 16 different cabanas and is located right in front of a picturesque pacific ocean with lots of beach/sports activities. On their website you can find detailed photos of each cabana.

Not that I have an aversion against lumberjack design, but the fact that the shower water always took more than 10 minutes to heat up and that we experienced one of the most unfriendly breakfast services ever, ruined that Viking experience.

In fact, there is very little touristic hotel capacity / competition in Maitencillo, which explains the poor customer service. What a pity, as this place is really a great escape from boring Santiago de Chile and overcrowded Vina del Mar.

On the positive: they have a very good restaurant called Canasta, where it is quite difficult to reserve. We had dinner there and enjoyed the rustical ambience in hand with great food and wine.
