When this hotel was built, it was no doubt the height of chic. These days the fabric of the building is looking a little the worse for wear - but this is probably inevitable given its location, just feet from the corrosive waves and spray of the Pacific Ocean. Likewise, our room smelt a little damp - but again, the waves were only about 10-15m from our window - so it was a price we were happy to pay! Our rooms (we stayed twice - a couple of nights apart) were comfortable and well-furnished. The public areas were lovely - especially the restaurant, with an outdoor terrace overlooking the swimming pool - again with the ocean just beyond. Breakfast was good (the best we had in 3 weeks in Chile), with a nice selection of hot and cold food, and impeccable service. Dinner in the restaurant was also good enough that we felt no inclination to look further afield. All-in-all, a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. And a little bonus - take a stroll round the hotel grounds at dusk, when several vultures, herons and egrets come to roost in the trees.
