Santa Cruz Plaza
Santa Cruz Plaza is a colonial-inspired hotel in the centre of town with good facilities including a pool and three restaurants.
Santa Cruz Plaza is a rather imposing hotel overlooking the main square in the centre of Santa Cruz, opposite the interesting Colchagua museum. The hotel’s design and décor were inspired by Spanish colonial features and you’ll find wrought iron balconies, staircase and bedsteads, and stained-glass ceilings. The hand-crafted, custom-made furnishings and wood carvings found throughout were brought from Peru.
The period guest rooms are provided with modern amenities however, and there are plenty of leisure facilities including an outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Inca Spa, gym and three restaurants to choose from. A separate building hosts conferences and special events.

This is a very large hotel, and you feel as if the Mafia might own it... as there is a vineyard, tour operator, and all sorts of other things all linked to this place.... it was good to get out and about from here.FR, Perth
Very good hotel. We all enjoyed it.RH, Carshalton
