Great Atacama Experience
Great place to stay with high attention to detail. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable guides. Never before have I experienced such a fabulous catering experience "in the field" - great spreads served in the middle of nowhere. Comfortable room with good facilities. Has to be the best place to stay in the area.
Absolutely worth it
Stayed at this place for a week with family. We did multiple excursions and every one of them is worth experiencing. The tour guides- Angela, Felipe, Meme, Jesilia, Danny, Luis, Bernie, and Rey- were excellent. They were very knowledgeable and friendly, and their hospitality was impeccable. The manager was very helpful, as were the waiters and waitresses at the restaurant. I would like to give a special mention to Jesilia and Danny for taking care of us during the horseback riding, and Luis for the wonderful astronomy lessons. The manager, Max, was awesome. I highly recommend this place for your next vacation.
Our second Explora experience...which is what it is - so much more than just a place to stay. So very well organized, we were well tended to and fed and our excursions were superb. They do such a great job of hiring wonderful young guides who are curious themselves, well educated and trained in each field, so make each adventure so much more interesting. The desert is truly amazingly beautiful. We went to the ALMA Array - signed up months in advance and only got on the waiting list, but went to the bus pick up, as told, and were able to get on. Well worth it!! Fascinating! The stargazing at the Explora was also a highlight.
stupendous hotel and incredible service- superior food, great open bar with superb bartenders making inventive drinks. Massages great- the swimming pools are incredible- all of them are 93 feet long at varying temperatures. the guides on the excursions were top notch and Atacama itself is incredible experience- extraterrestrial!!
Great for exploring Atacama sights
Great resort with stunningly modern public areas. Accommodation was of a good standard, although not luxurious in anyway and could, in fact, do with a bit of a makeover. We had a view across a meadow, and could see horses grazing. There is a viewing platform on the top of the hotel which gives good views across the town and countryside; some good sunsets in the evening. The food was very good, well served with a reasonable choice of wines. The food was very good, with menu driven choices for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was buffet style, although egg dishes were to order. There was flexibility to have some main courses as starters. There was a good variety of included trips which were mainly half days returning to the hotel for lunch. The afternoon sessions generally started at about 5pm to avoid the heat of early afternoon. All the guides were knowledgeable about the area and its geology, and were good company. The highlight mut be the trip which included walking barefoot down a large sand dune in late afternoon... amazing! We also did a two hour horse back ride from the resort’s own stables; a first for one of us and a 50 year gap for the other! As with Explora in Rapa Nui, we thought this was a great way to explore the area.
