Where to stay at South America’s Oasis

HUACACHINA HOTELS AND HOSTELS

Huacachina is a very popular tourist destination, and unsurprisingly there are a lot of hotels to choose from. The advantage of staying in Huacachina is the convenience of being “right in the middle of the action”, because all the tours depart from Huacachina, the hotels are located there, the restaurants and bars are located there too, and it is easy to meet other travelers. Furthermore, it is a very pleasant and relaxing location. The disadvantage is that the service is poor at some of the hotels, the WIFI often doesn’t work, and most hotels do not have air conditioning or cable TV.

FIVE STAR AND FOUR STAR HOTELS: None; the nearest hotels of this class are in Paracas
THREE STAR HOTELS:
    Hotel Mossone: Huge swimming pool, colonial style hacienda, with old rooms. Expensive.
    Hotel El Huacachinero: Nice swimming pool, clean rooms, mediocre service, rude owner, unhappy staff
    Hosteria Suiza: Nice pool, reasonable rooms, OK service. Quiet atmosphere.
TWO STAR HOTELS:
    Hotel Curasi : average pool, average rooms, average restaurant, average service
BACKPACKER YOUTH HOSTELS
   Casa de Arena: large party hostel, unpretentious, fun place to stay but very loud on Friday and Saturday nights
   Carola del Sur: large hostel, average rooms, easy to meet other youths, a relaxed “stoner” vibe
    Hospedaje del Barco: basic hostal, fairly generic rooms
    Desert Nights: basic hostal, tasty restaurant with American food. Location is good.
    Sand and Lake: Basic hostal. Pleasant staff, nice location, fun bar, can be loud, a bit dirty.
    Hostal Rocha: Very basic, mediocre rooms, dirty building.
    Salvatierra: Rooms are very basic/mediocre, but the swimming pool is very nice.
    Banana’s Adventure: small hostal, pleasant relaxed atmosphere, dishonest owners, slow dune buggies
    La Casa de Bamboo: a small bed and breakfast, quiet, with a restaurant on the ground floor

ICA HOTELS AND HOSTELS

The best (and most expensive) hotels in the area are not found in Huacachina, but in the quiet neighborhood of La Angostura, an upscale residential district of Ica located about 15 minutes north of Huacachina. The advantage of staying in a hotel in Ica is that the service is far superior, as are the amenities. You can expect WIFI in the rooms, better breakfasts, cable TV, and much friendlier and professional service. The disadvantage is that staying in one of these hotels can make you feel more isolated: you are further away from the tourists and the restaurants. Whether this is an advantage or a disadvantage depends on your perspective! In any case there an inexpensive taxis to transport you to and from Huacachina, so the isolation is optional.

FIVE STAR HOTELS: None
FOUR STAR HOTELS:
    Hotel Las Dunas: An upscale desert resort with huge pools, pleasant rooms, horseback riding, etc.
THREE STAR HOTELS:
    Villa Jazmin: very popular boutique hotel, excellent and friendly service, good breakfast, clean rooms.
            The pool is small, perhaps the only disadvantage to an otherwise excellent and popular choice.
    Hotel Vinas Quierolo: a respected local winery has a new hotel, which is getting mixed reviews. The customer
            service is mediocre, and the location is far from Huacachina, as it is located about 25 minutes to the
            north-east of Huacachina. However, the hotel itself is quite lovely, and the ability to stay at a
            working winery is a very romantic and a unique attraction.
