Sunfish Hotel
Ranked #14 of 25 Hotels in Iquique
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Arriving at night this place look great from the outside. In daytime it clearly needed a a lick of paint. Inside, everything is looking a bit tired and worn and the hotel is probably due for a refurbishment.

That said, our room was spacious and comfortable with a decent, large bed and great views. Furniture and bathroom fittings were a bit past their sell by date but housekeeping were fantastic and kept the room scrupulously clean.

Reception staff were very good and very helpful.

We tried the top floor sushi restaurant one night choosing one of the platters on offer. It was tasty enough, but in could have done a better job of constructing the sushi rolls at home! All just a little amateurish and not cheap!

We were kept awake on a couple of nights by dogs barking from around midnight to the early hours in a kennels just opposite the hotel. Not the hotels fault but choose rooms carefully.

One block back from the beach, it is in a good location to get around town.

Room Tip: Beware of the dogs at the front of the hotel. Sea view rooms may be noisy

My wife and I stayed in the Sunfish for 4 days and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was very helpful; they arranged tours and taxis for us and one receptionist in particular, Nicole, spoke excellent English. The Sunfish is located one block back from Playa Cavanche, with an excellent view of the beach.
Making on-line reservations is very difficult since it is mainly in Spanish and they don't seem to answer their e-mails asking about rates and reservations. Other than that, and the damed dog that barked at night, the Sufish was ideal. Most of their rooms have a balcony with a view of the sea.
