We recently visited this resort and very much enjoyed the set-up, food, excellent spa and swimming facilities.
Indoor pools are spacious, nice and warm, outdoor pools, incl. a special wave pool are NOT heated and therefore are only used by brave swimmers during the relative mild winter season.
Rooms are very big, with spacious bathrooms and good beds and tv, although the furniture is rather basic.
The breakfast/luncheon and dinner area is very big and can accommodate up to 1600 guests, part of which are day guests attending conferences.
All hotel guests have clearly marked numbered tables and therefore are guaranteed good seating.
All food (of good quality) is served buffet style and a great number of nice choices are offered. Because of the very spacious set-up of the buffet area, no delays are encountered there.
At night salsa dance lessons and karaoke singing was part of the entertainment in a very spacious entertainment area.
Most if not all guests are Chilean (except the writer of this rating), which is a reason that pre-payment of reservations is very difficult for any person not living in Chile. This should be improved on, if the resort wants to attract more international guests, since in our case we tried in vain to pre-pay from abroad and finally our booking had to be settled by a local remittance.
The resort's explanation that we got , when inquiring about this, when we were there, was:
All foreign visitors to Chile, usually go to the coast (the resort is in Olmue, an inland city about 2 hours north of Santiago), or to the north of Chile or Patagonia, so we simply do not handle many foreign bookings or remittances , other than via our website.
All in all, we had a very nice stay and certainly would return, if the occasion would arise.
