Hotel del Paine
Simple but memorable accommodation in cosy riverside cabins with stupendous views of the Paine massif.
There are stupendous views towards the Paine massif from the basic but memorable Hotel del Paine, comprised of cosy wooden cabins strung alongside the river Paine. Accommodation is simple, but for the spectacular surroundings alone it’s an excellent choice.
Whether indoors or out, there’s no shortage of ways to appreciate the hotel’s best feature – from drinking in a sunset from lakeside benches facing truly mesmerising scenery, to admiring an ever-changing panorama from the large picture windows in the guestrooms, lounge and restaurant. There’s even a hot tub, also with views of the magnificent Cuernos del Paine.

Highlight: Torres Del PaineCG, Amersham
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
Highlight?: Easter Island - amazing place - very good food, hardly any tourists and extraordinary history/statues etc. We could easily have stayed an extra night there. I would strongly recommend hiring a car there. We also booked a snorkelling trip which was good.CK, Ashtead
Highlights:- Chile was just fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experiences in both Patagonia and Atacama. Really quite memorable.MR

So many highlights- Tatio geyser, base of Torres del Paine walk, seeing puma and Easter Island memories for lifeHM, Bristol

Most memorable experiences: "First sight of San Pedro. Hiring our own car and being alone with the flamingos on the salt lagoons. The Milky Way in the Atacama night sky. Chairlift through the mist on Osorno Volcano. Mountain and glacier views in Patagonia. Pisco sour with everything. The Chilean people - always ready to smile."DA, Northallerton
Most Memorable Moment?: The stunning beauty of Torres del Paine ; we were very lucky with the weather in Patagonia Our estancia brief visit, en route, was also very nice.RL, Solihull
Most Memorable Moment?: For me, Torres del Paine as it appeared and disappeared through the clouds. The Explora hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views of the mountains are stunning. For my wife, she loved the Atacama and the Moon Valley in particular. Walking through the valley when there were just the three of us was really memorable.JM, Hatfield
Highlights?: The time in Torres del Paine, both Patagonia Camp and the treks through the stunning scenery.AR, Reading
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult to pick one from so many but probably the walk up to Torres Del Paine Mirador - although it was a tough day.SB, Milnthorpe
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
Highlights: Visiting Patagonia and staying at the Patagonia campFT, Mansfield
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
Highlight?: Difficult to separate a sunny, windless clear day at Torres del Paine ( plus several others nearly as good). And deep snow in the Altiplano round Miscanti lakes. So good even the drivers were taking photos. Both quite excellent.DH, Milnthorpe
Highlights: Valparaiso was stunning and Vina Santa Cruz a pleasant, relaxing surprise.MS, Shaftesbury
The Alto Plano of Bolivia was striking. Torres del Paine national park too was memorable as was Perito Moreno glacier.GOR,
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the cruise or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten Celcius. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was standing in silence at the Pia Glacier. Our favourite guide was Cyril in Chiloe. He became a great friend and we had some lovely times together.RW, Paphos
A truly memorable trip all round because of the contrasts very difficult to pick the most memorable but Valparasio Casa Higueras we would have loved to have stayed longer and in Vina del Mar.DS, Chesham
Patagonia's open spaces, clean air and stunning views. Chilean people were very friendly and helpful. Excellent food.MP, Hemel Hempstead
The picnic by Lake Pehoe provided by The Singular was exceptional- totally exceeded our expectations.YLS,
