Great Location Nice staff pool (when clean)
Dirty pool hot hot hot rooms mosquitoes no screens run down/under construction Expensive We paid 50 dollars a night for a room worse then any place we stayed in Peru in the 20 USD range .. To be fair, Huacachina suffers from a high demand low supply market which does not require for hotels and hostels to improve or provide good service to be profitable so i think sub par accommodations at inflated prices are the norm. This was the cheapest place we could find with a pool which only was open one day as it was filthy!! If you are planning on using the pool, it was closed for half our stay so dont count on it being usable. Having said that, when we could use it Huacachina is a great place to pool lounge The room had one fan but no screens on the windows and the temperature was unbearable We made the mistake of opening the window for 1 hour to try to get some air in in the afternoon and had over 30 bites between us and the blood stains on the wall showed that we were not the only ones splatting bugs. Our room was never cleaned and with all the sand even though we undressed at the door made the room get dirty pretty quick.. Also even though it appears to be at least 20 years old it is still only partially painted with the upper floors on the outside unfinished cement and not for aesthetics, Staff was very nice but upon asking for recommendations for activities, we were offered tours for inflated prices through the hotel.. Not a good felling being price gouged and not being able to get advice or service from the front desk. Do yourself a favor and walk into several tour operators located everywhere and save some money for the same tours. After basically destroying Huacachina Sunset, I think the conditions here are pretty typical so my advice is either pay more and hopefully get something decent and when you see something that looks half decent jump on it. It is a sellers market in this amazing town which was a highlight of a 1 month Peru journey.
Comfortable beds, no bunk beds, not as loud as other reviews say. The pool are is so nice as well as the terrace. Breakfast is okay, with eggs and jam. They helped me with tours to canon de los Perdidos (don't miss this!). Location directly at the entrance to the sand dunes. Try the chocolates with pecan, self made from the hotel!
No hot water in the morning, obviously you have to switch on the black plug... Floor was a bit dirty from all the sand
The place is fair in location but installation are poor and unsafe
Location was great! Loved the rooftop area
Good location, very quiet, with lots of areas to hangout, shower was hot, breakfast was excellent, including eggs, juice and coffee. The rooftop area was very nice and the restaurant was very good and great prices.
The swimming pool was nice but very murky during our stay so we did not use it.
