“Poetry and Landscape”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Neruda´s home in Isla Negra is a wonderful place to visit. It shows Pablo and Matilde love story through their collection of travel souvenir and gifts received from their many friends. It has a very unusual and particularly architecture and a wide view of Pacific ocean.

“Lovely small museum, must make a reservation”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

The tour can be done in any language and was quite informative. We spend time in the house and on the beach below, glad to be able to learn more than we had known about Pablo Neruda. Restaurant has outdoor seating overlooking the ocean, protected by the cold air and blankets available.

“A little far but worth the trip”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We did this as a half day tour from Santiago. We caught the bus from metro station Universidad de Santiago on the red line. It costs about $10 000 pesos there and back and the trip is about 1h 40mins each way. The house is full of curios and getting an insight into Neruda's eccentricities was interesting. The location and view are amazing but if you go on a cold day, I'd rug up. It's super windy and the wind is icy! We had a really nice afternoon in Isla Negra and even stopped for lunch there too. The restaurant we chose was good and well priced for the "prato do dia". It was also one of the closest to Neruda's house, kinda near the cabins which house craft sellers.

“Rotten potato”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

I like to eat fresh food, especially if I go out.
My friends from Moscow Russia and I ordered sea food soup. (I guess it was sopa de mariscos or so). All of us got the bad potato in it. You know when potato gets bad, you don't need to cut a little piece from it , you need to throw away full potato. Other way all soup taste like crap.
Food was bad... Very touristic.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

Not being very knowledgeable of Neruda and not being a tour kind of person i didn't know what to expect; but it was very interesting, it's sort of an instant dive into Neruda's word. The museum's restaurant was also very nice; the food was lovely and portions were big.
