Great property
Beautiful property and service was top notch. Each room is a stand alone unit. Was able to park my car on site. When we left early to see the geysers, the hotel provided a very nice boxed breakfast. One thing to note is that the pool is not heated so not usable in the colder months. On-site restaurant for days when we didn’t feel like leaving the property for dinner

This is a hidden gem in San Pedro de Atacama. Directly on the main strip, and close to tour companies, restaurants and shopping. The property is centrally located but also wonderfully quiet, with each room being a distinct and beautifully set up building. The food at the hotel rivals anything in town, and the staff are all universally hospitable and pleasant. Would recommend this to anyone visiting San Pedro.

It was an amazing experience with incredibly helpful staff and wonderful facilities. It’s location is right in the heart of the action and is the location of choice for tour droop off. Great breakfast although many tours start early and you’ll miss out but they do pack a carry away breakfast if notified. Disregard the check-in warnings on Expedia that states they stop check-in at 530. That’s nonsense and they’ll welcome you whenever you get there. One last warning, their entrance is subtle and can easily be missed if your driver is not used to dropping off passengers at the Desertica.

The central tree-lined courtyard is beautifully decorated with colorful local items, a bi-level pool, ample seating, and bar service. The restaurant features a wood accent and has an open feeling; the food is very fresh and very good.

Loved it! Amazing staff and beautiful boutique hotel with the best location. Only gripe was internet was extremely slow and intermittent at times— other than that small detail the property is perfect for anyone looking for R&R in between adventures in San Pedro de Atacama! Pricey, but worth it.
