We kept being told how good the Hotel Arica is, and how smart and terrific it was in every way. We arrived. We had booked an adapted room, but were put in an ordinary one, which was actually changed with no trouble at all. The adapted bathroom had a floor akin to an ice skating rink (for anyone), we couldn't... More

The sea views are wonderful, as you are right on the beach. This is a very charming, relaxing hotel, but the room and bathroom were sadly in need of updating. Breakfast was very nice, with excellent breads, fruit and coffee, but the milk had curdled. I'm sure the pool would be nice but it was out of action when we... More

This hotel has a good location, right on the water. It is nice to hear the waves crashing on the shore at night. My appreciation for the hotel stops there, which is in serious need of an update. There were doormats on floor beside the bed. The bathroom was not clean. Someone else's hair was in the bathtub, the glasses... More

Nice hotel with pool, and very close to the ocean. The staff is friendly (some English speaking) and helpful. The rooms are not that soundproof and the constant roaring of the ocean can be beautiful but also very loud. There is a nice bar with friendly waiters. I only stayed there during evening/night time, but I can imagine that it's... More

This is not a place to stay. Appalling food, the rooms are dirty with rust all over the windows and bathroom. Workmen hammering and sawing all afternoon and a definate health hazard. Came back from an indedible dinner, sent back twwice, to find the room awash with water. Not safe

The hotel is on the outskirts and a little too far from town to walk, but its easy to get a cab. It has a slightly 70s feel to it, and the wifi reception is weak (seems to be a feature of most Chilean hotels) but theyre sprucing it up and its bright, clean and quiet and spacious and has... More
