Having read the reviews on this site, I expected to be blown away... I was only blown away with how bad this place really is. Overpriced, paper thin walls, lack luster gardens and a pool that can only be compared with a USA Super 8. The views of the valley are only if you get lucky enough to be put in a room that has one. We looked out upon a stone wall and a tree trunk that was surrounded by irrigation hose.
While I will agree the owner is nice and speaks good English... You are better off at one of the hostels in town where you will find amazing gardens unique landscape and proximity that makes up for any amenity mentioned above that we were never offered.
No free pisco sours, no solitude, no view, no nada. If you do however want to hear what the other people in the room beside you are doing, the receptionist's cell phone conversation, every car that drives by and dog in the compound (which there are four) then this is your place.
For 65,000 Chilean pesos there are much better values to be had. If its your only option, look a little bit out of town, you'll be better off for it.
The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable enough but you have a little more privacy than a shared room in a hostel.
