Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2011

My wife and I spent four days here in early March. It was a perfect time to be in the region as the end of Feb is the end of the busy season, the weather was great and hotel and its location were perfect. The hotel sits in the perfect location on Lake Villarica and is approx 1 mile from downtown Pucon. I was skeptical about the hotel as its uniqueness is in the 50's styling and is history of famous guests from 60 years ago, but the 50's modern style that has been preserved actually gives it a modern feel. It was a true experience and the new spa and pool were a great place to relax after our flight from New York. Front desk spoke English very well which is frequently not the case in this region. They were also great resources for planning and setting up day trips. The restaurant had a nice selection of meat and fish dishes prepared by a chef. I give this my highest recommendation and look forward to returning in the future. The only downside... the walls were somewhat thin and the pisco sours were our least favorite of the trip (and we had several) :).

Many thanks for taking the time to write a comment about our hotel. It is extremely useful to help us identify areas where we can improve. We are aware of the issue with the walls between the rooms on the ground floor. During the coming low season we intend to implement a project to sound proof and insulate all walls along the corridor. We are sure when you next return you will immediately notice the difference! In regard to our pisco sours, we do spot test them from time to time (a nice part of the job!), and they have always been given the thumbs up. Maybe you could let us know where you found your favourite ones and we will go and try them ourselves? Once again, thank you for your comments and we do hope you will return to the Antumalal on your next Chilean vacation.

Hotel Antumal is officially on my list of top hotels. Although the rooms wasn't as modern as a city hotel, the experience is second to none. I felt like I was staying in a giant tree house. The restaurant sits on top of the lake and the food was fantastic (best meal after La Maga). The spa is relaxing and the therapists were experienced. There is a private dock, and a good amount of outdoor options to sit down and relax. From the front desk to the bartender, the service was genuine and right on. Gloria in the front office was very helpful and an expert on Pucon, she offers great tips and suggestions! The location was superb and made for a quiet environment, but still close enough to town. We showed up and didn't know if we needed a car, but it turned out we did and the hotel has two "company" cars that you can rent for the day at a great rate. The security was strong and the only noise at night was that of the lake!

We felt instantly at home and spoiled, the moment we walked in to Hotel Antumalal. We stayed in the beautiful villa with stunning views of the lake and hills and mountains, that seemed to change with the skies, day and night. The villa is built against the natural rock wall, so that the living room wall is the rock wall that has many plants growing and a sliding glass door allows you to step out by the small waterfall. The three fireplaces are set daily with wood. What a treat to have dinner served in this fabulous living room, with the fire roaring and enjoying the fantastic view. We can't say enough about the staff. They did far more than was necessary to make our stay fabulous. We are already telling our friends to book it when they go to Chile. Lynn & Bruce Smith

We had the pleasure of staying here late November. At first glance the hotel looked "motellish" once inside, we were awed by the architecture, staff greeting and our room. We had a very large window overlooking the very well maintained garden, to Lake Villaricci The room was spacious, king sized bed, beautiful bathroom, wood burning fireplace, impeccable. The restaurant was excellent, amongst the best food we had in Chile, the ambience was charming, sophisticated and chic. Truly a delight.

The architecture at Hotel Antumalal is stunning as is the view. The service is exceptional-they found an electric teapot and a convertor for our computer. The wi-fi is a little spotty but the best strength is in the beautiful living room with the fire and the lake view. We had the family room with a full lake view and fireplace. Very comfortable. I thought the breakfast buffet was just fine-they even had oatmeal. A wonderful retreat!!

Thank you so much for your wonderful comment about the Hotel Antumalal.
It is great to receive feedback as it helps us to improve.
We are aware that our wifi connection can be slow at times and are looking into options to make the signal stronger throughout the hotel. The concrete that keeps the rooms warm is working against us on that one right now, however, we are sure we will find a solution.

Thank you again and have a great day!

Excellent hotel and very relaxing. The garden is specially beautiful. To visit Pucon, rent a car to drive all around (national parks, skiing, etc).

Loved it. Best architecture, gorgeous view. Pucon has a lot of tourists, but I could feel isolated from the crowd while at the hotel. The restaurant is top notch also.
