I really liked this place, but so do lots of Chileans. There is a hotel that looks like mountain covered in vegetation (called Magic Mountain).There is another that is build around a Notofagus Tree (thus the name Notofagus) and made completely of wood with ramps circling the tree so you can get to your room (there is also an elevator) and finally there is another hotel called the Mushroom which is a wooden structure shaped as stated, like a mushroom.
The end result of this is that there are hundreds of locals who come to take a look in this park that was begun by a for-profit logging company. Now this company has created a resort in the woods with hundreds of activities from hiking to biking to climbing, horseback riding and many, many zip lines for people of all ages (even for 3 year olds).
They try with their English, but most everyone is Spanish speaking. So either practice up on your Spanish or be prepared to be patient while they try to speak to you in English
All in all it was fun and although I prefer their upscale Nawhelpi Lodge...it is great to see these other hotels and enjoy all of the activities that are offered.

We only had one day in the area, but we made it count by taking three trails: Huilo Huilo, Puma, y Hoffman. Since we were crunched on time these were the three trails recommended to us by Huilo Huilo reservation and they did not disappoint. The first two are fairly short but offer amazing spectacles of two massive waterfalls (Huilo Huilo being by far the best). These two trails are located right next to each other so they are easy to tackle in one fall swoop.

Hoffman is back by the hotels and is a big harder two find as you walk down a back road for about a half mile before you get to the hidden trail entrance to the left of the bridge. This trail was gorgeous though! It follows the bank of the river, giving you opportunities to sneak out onto the river on a couple of rock outlooks.

Overall, very gorgeous trails that are not very taxing and a great day activity to do with friends, family, or solo!

Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve encompasses pretty much all the other "attractions" listed here. On one hand, the reserve has very good infrastructure compared to a typical national park, with well marked trails, a visitor's center with a lot of information about flora and fauna and several restaurants and cafes within the reserve. The forest is beautiful, among the most pristine and verdant I have seen in 5 years of traveling and hiking in Chile. On the other hand, there are a few annoyances that could easily be rectified. First, signage is spotty. Some areas are well marked and other are completely lacking. It is very inconsistent. Second, signage along the main road is mostly only visible for those traveling eastbound (toward Argentina). Third, my biggest annoyance is that it is next to impossible to get deep into the reserve. All but one of the hikes stay along the northern periphery of the reserve, practically within earshot of the main road. If you want to hike deeper into the reserve and admire the native forest, you would have to do a guided trek of several days. That is a shame.

There are several "packages" you can buy and they give you 5 day access to an expanding range of trails. The prices are reasonable considering the park's infrastructure. However, one would be hard pressed to spend more than 3 days in Huilo Huilo. We spent 4 and it was plenty.

We arrive at Huilo Huilo with high expectations. We stayed at the campsite. Initially the staff at the reception was helpful and friendly. The pitches were really nice, hidden in the forest with not too many pitches close together. Unfortunately it all went down hill from there! The staff at the visitors center were unhelpful and sullen, the place lacked any kind of signs along the walking paths and the directions we were given incomplete (I speak Spanish so it wasn’t a language thing!). On our third night we came back to our pitch to find it had been given to someone else and out stuff had disappeared. They found our things and gave us a complimentary night in the end, but we will not be going back in a hurry!

We came all the way to Huilo Huilo to do some skiing especially Snow Cat skiing. We booked at the expensive Boa Bob tree house hotel and then the next morning they told us that one of the two lifts that they had were broken and that they would be no Snow Cat skiing. So we we going to ski the one lift anyway, then 30 min before they were to transport us to the ski area they said they were not going to open. Could never get a good answer as to why? Terribly disappointing to say the least.

Ok. I am chilean but I will write in English in order to maybe help foreign people to know a bit about this place. This is a place very particular. this is part of "selva valdiviana" which take place from The mountains to the coasts. you can find different waterfalls which are always nice to see and feel. the routes are quite clear and it is very difficult to get lost. once you are in this place. you can see so much wild life which makes you feel something that only the south can provide you. now we went in the summer but, the weather was so particular. sometimes you feel cold or warm just like in the jungle. so bring clothes that work with both high and low temperatures. the way to get to this place is something out of this world. you see rivers, lakes, islands and mountains full of trees. it isn't hard to get there moreover waze or googlemaps are always useful because there are different places that compose this beautiful park. I hope this info. is useful for you. good luck!

Fist you need to know that the Huilo Huilo hotel booking cancellation policy is 2 weeks in advance, so if you have an unforeseen issue within that 2 week period and know you will not be able to make it, you're better forgetting about your money than going through the humiliating experience of trying to get some understanding from Huilo Huilo.

In my case I first tried to explain through their website contact email (which supposedly they never got), then I phoned to explain and was told to email my justification for cancellation, just to receive a quick response stating not possible to cancel due to policy reasons and finally when I obviously did not show up then I received an email them stating I did not show up and that I had never advised them (after all the above); so they took the booking moneys as a fine.

So the cool thing about the reserve is the deer-feeding. It happens at about 3pm (if I remember, check to make sure). So you're sitting waiting and the guy comes out with a wheel barrow of feed and all of a sudden, these deer start coming out of the woods. I counted over 70. They are very large deer, almost elk size with many adult males sporting full racks. Really cool for the kids as the deer get within about 20 yards of the viewing paths.

The hotel is constructed primarily of wood. It's name suits it . Excellent buffet evening meals. The rainforest is beautiful with great scenery and excellent places to visit. Take good walking shoes and wet proof clothing.
