Arriving from Puerto Varas on the road to Ensenada this hotel is situated at km 9,5. Its sign is barely visible from there, but if you see on the road the marking of km 10, you passed by and should turn around. Coming from the side of Ensenada the sign is easier to spot. Omce you turn to the internal gravel street, immediately turn to the left (there is a nearly hidden colored sign of Los Caiquenes) and soon you are in the parking place of the hotel. It is placed in a big garden with really fantastic flowerbeds, on the other side there is a pool with reclining chairs. Rooms are very spatious and well furnished, the bathroom is big and with good amenities, although a better light above the giant mirror would be welcome. The bed linen is of a superior quality and there is a bathrobe for using it if going to the pool. Breakfast is excellent, with freshly pressed orange juice, eggs any style prepared on demand in the moment, ham, cheese and a very nice fruit salad. Filter coffee is somewhat weak and not always very warm, if somebody likes stronger and hot coffee, an espresso machine is available, you only have to ask for it and the very helpful staff will prepare it. Dinner has to be ordered beforehand. There is a limited list of courses available, 2 or 3 fish, 1 pork and 1 steak is the daily normal offer, with baked potatoes, grilled vegetables and very good fresh salads. All are prepared with care and good quality Dinner can be served at any hour (probably between 8 and 10 p.m.) as ordered a few hours before. If you have a special demand, ask for it from the cook or the owner the night before. We asked for a sea food soup/stew with rice and were surprised with possibly the best meal we had in Chile. Wi-fi works fine in all the hotel. Isabel Duhalde, the owner is responsible for every detail and is permanently present to look after the welfare of the guests. My only criticism could be that there are only Spanish language news channels in the TV, some like BBC, Euronews or Deutsche Welle woild be welcome.
