We spent 3 nights at Isla Seca. It is a very comfortable and quite expensive hotel in Zapallar, but it should be better than it is. We were very out of season so it was rather quiet at the hotel, which I am sure gives it an odd feeling. The service was extremely attentive and helpful and friendly. The location...

Booked a last minute room based on a recommendation from a friend that lives in Santiago. It was a perfect spot on the coast! Rooms were basic but nicely appointed. The bar was perfect for a nightcap. Included breakfast was a bonus!

Great place. Slightly dated but Quaint boutique near the beautiful Zapallar beach. Lovely walking paths to the beach and Chiringuitos for amazing Machas Parmesana and pisco sours. A must see when in Chile.

A great place to rest up for a couple of nights before heading home. Service friendly, if a little 'thin' around the pool. Ocean view bedrooms recommended, and excellent salads available at lunchtime near the pool (we loved our avocado, red onion and tomato (skin removed!)). Beuatiful walk along a coastal footbath to beach and beyond in both directions, with...

Zapallar itself is a lovely little spot with a terrific beach and an amazing number of luxury houses tucked into the hill slopes, apparently occupied by millionaires from Santiago. Hotel Isla Seca is the perfect base to enjoy these idyllic surroundings. The hotel itself seems more like an old colonial house with fascinating pictures from yesteryear (including three of Margaret...

On the plus side, the staff in general are very friendly. The views are very pleasant. The pool area is quiet and pretty. The deck for eating/dining is lovely. On the negative side, we didn't like the location, a little far from the beach and/or centre. There was a mini transport but it didn't always arrive when supposed to or...

We wanted to stay somewhere to have a quiet, unplanned day or two before we flew from Santiago to Los Angeles, then to home. So we picked Zapallar. a good choice. Hotel is fine, probably best option in town, but the hospitality and warmth was not up to the standards we had other places in our trip to South America....
