We booked this B&B at the last minute as our B&B in Valaparaiso did not meet our expectations. La Casa del Almirante certainly did. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We stayed in Pacifico on the top floor and had more than enough room, even a kitchenette. We loved to sit on the couches in the little seating area while we answered emails and gazed at the beautiful view. The sunsets were awesome. Breakfasts were good and we communicated with the staff with our minimal Spanish. We stayed for 3 nights and were the only guests for 2 of the nights so it did feel a bit lonely. We were travelling in May so all of Vina Del Mar felt empty and quiet. Restaurants were not full. The B&B is hard to find. Our taxi driver had a hard time locating it, but he turned off his meter to not overcharge us. It is not close to any restaurants, bakeries or stores so we had large lunches in town and brought back wine and snacks to eat in the room at night. Jose was very helpful in giving us directions on getting back to Santiago by bus. We enjoyed staying here but would make sure we didn't come in the off-season next time.
