We stayed one night in this hotel. The staff were friendly and the room was clean. However, the decor of the room was very dark and dated, and made the small room feel even smaller. You didn't want to spend much time in your room. The shower was powerful and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was average, there was a...

For the short time I was there I got good vibes from this place. Room was on the small side but I was only sleeping in it. Front desk was helpful; breakfast was fine. I didn't use the pool but it looked nice. No problems recommending.

Great staff and customer service. The room was o.k., but not great. The pool was amazing. The restaurant had good options, but the free breakfast could of been better. Overall, I would stay here again.

We moved to Hotel El Huacachinero after experiencing another hostel, and it was the best decision of the trip. It is not in the general budget traveller price range however. The showers are hot, great pressure, with clean floors. The beds comfy, a fan or two, and clean sheets. The pool is cold but clean and maintained every morning. Breakfast...

If i was to review this hotel in Lima or another place in the US or EU, i would have gone for 2, maximum 3 stars. I'm going for 4 because el huacachinero is to my opinion one of best options if you are looking for a clean and comfortable hotel with a pool in huacachina. There are not many...

On late arrival was given the probably the smallest room as a solo traveller - just enough room for bed and small table. Only one hanger on rail. Room fan worked and was given electric fan as well. Reception staff not helpful. Was told by one I could keep my room on for a few hours at no cost. Then...

We had a nice, comfortable stay at this hotel. It is not a five stars hotels, but it was clean, and the people were amicable and helpful. The beds ere OK, and breakfast was included. I recommend staying here and using their services to go to the sand dunes.

We absolutely loved this place. We arrived late at night, but they still managed to make something really tasty - a quinoa soup. Next morning, what a lovely view from the pool/breakfast area of the huge Sand Dunes, right on the back gate of this hotel. Breakfast was great, sitting outside watching people walking up the Dunes and the hotel...

Booked for two nights with Despegar (do not book with Despegar.com!) for s/157 per night, upon checkout the staff would not honour this price as they only go by pricing from other websites even though I booked through Despegar through a link on Tripadvisor. Shame on Tripadvisior for allowing people to book through this company, they should be removed immediately....
