Over priced, badly maintained, unfriendly service. The hot water didn't work, the food was insubstantial and the towels were dirty. We asked for the cabin to be cleaned and it was still very dirty when we came back, including red wine glasses! Would highly NOT recommend staying here. For this price you expect excellent service, or rather go camping. /...

The location is great- just off a main road but tucked in the Elqui valley with mountain views and gorgeous sleeping arrangements. While a bit understaffed, the staff is very warm and friendly and tries to offer arrangements and excursions to ensure a pleasant stay. If you don't have a car, (we didn't) they can help with transfers. The downside...

While the dome where you sleep is impressive and it's fun sleeping with the roof open under the stars, the overall experience at Elqui Domos was a little underwhelming. We aren't rich travellers and we opted to spend a chunk of our savings on this experience and were disappointed. The staff weren't particularly enthusiastic and the free meals were average....

We had a wonderful time staying in the Domos. The staff were also great, taking great care of us including freshly made pisco sours by the pool and picking fresh avocados from their tree for my breakfast. We loved it. One thing: there is a street light just in front of the Domos, so when you sleep with the top...

This hotel is for stargazing, that i do recommend. It has a nice view of the stars from the room, we didn't get a Domo but one of the observatory rooms. Its nice because you can go to the rooftop and lounge there. I took a few photos, but there are trees and a hill/mountain that cover nice photography shots....

This is a very well run facility with knowledgeable staff. The cabins at the top of the hill are especially comfortable and roomy. It's important before making plans to check on the phases of the moon, as a full moon or nearly full moon will obscure the best view of the stars. Go when there's a new moon. The hotel...

Good location if you have a car (main town is 3 km). We had no problem exploring the little towns and checking out the restaurants and local attractions. Due to the full moon we didn't really have a "stargazing" experience and just kept our cabin blinds shut. I would spring for the cabin if you are planning to stay here...

Excellent place to stay in the Elqui Valley. Luis who works here is so friendly and hospitable, he really goes above and beyond for the guests. He was able to recommend great restaurants in town and help with organising other activities. He is always smiling and really happy to help which is awesome. It is located a fair distance from...

We stayed for one night and it was really awesome. Domo was wonderful and cool, it needed all the windows open to fill it with fresh air but it was wonderfully cool to stay there. We slept with the roof hatch open and it was wonderful to wake up and see stars as i was falling asleep. The observatory tour...

We took one of the cabins for one night. We left due to illness which had nothing to do with the hotel. However, I have to say that I was very disappointed. The accommodation is very basic. There is the usual rustic Chilean disposal of toilet paper, which takes some adjusting too. There is no hot water, we could only...
