Usually I do not comment when I don't see anything good and travelers should be aware of this. This is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed! Ok, the building is historic, but since it's a hotel now, it should be like that. Very old furniture and devices at the lobby, room and bathroom make you feel unconfortable. Common... More

We had an early evening meal, so we could drink in the amazing view of almost being at sea. It is right on the water and lunch or dinner to capture the views is a must. If you go when it is dark, then it is only for the meal. Our food was excellent and the onion soup was sumptuous.... More

I cannot comment on the hotel as we did not stay there, but the restaurant was absolutely amazing! Excellent choices on the menu, absolutely delicious food, top-notch service and breathtaking ambiance -- we dined by candlelight on the 2nd floor of the restaurant next to an open window with waves crashing beneath us. Definitely an experience to remember, loved it!

We stayed at Cap Ducal over New Years 2016 for a total of 4 nights, and it was an absolutely lovely experience. It was our first time in Chile, and the location could not have been better. Right on the water, short walk to beaches on either side and right in the center of town, near tons of restaurants, shops,... More

Upfront I would linke to stress the fact, that we habe only enjoyed the Restaurant. Hence I can not judge in the quality of the hotel. Although the building has somewhat come of age, the food is still excellent and the view over the bay oft Viña del Mar is breathtaking. We had Pisco Sour as aperitif and mussels as... More

Saw the Planet reviews so we booked with #1 rating in town as our guide. Not even close. Not one square meter of wallpaper in our room wasn't gouged, scratched or peeling. Threadbare carpets and tacky furniture. Great view of harbor affected by years of accumulated guano on roof. Still, it was interesting.....like an old photo album that gives a... More

We arrived late and our room was large, oddly furnished, with a balcony overlooking the crashing waves below. We had a nice, unmemorable dinner, a good sleep, an OK breakfast. The place seemed to have seen better days. The staff spoke a little English. Would not stay here again.

I will say right away that this hotel is not going to be for everyone, but we loved it. You are out over the water, so when we would walk out to our balcony, the birds/seagulls are flying all around and landing on our railing. Our room was perfect in that you could lay on the bed and look out... More

I am a world traveler, married to a Chilean, so am surprised by the reviews claiming the wonders of this hotel. The view is fantastic and the view wonderful from room 6. The puzzlement comes from the following. Grotty big room key-no one told us to turn it in at the front desk so at 3:30 in the afternoon room... More

This hotel was built in 1936. I love everything vintage, but this hotel shows some important run-down. It is painful to see and experience, because the place is a gem and could even have historical value for visitors of Viña if correctly refurbished. If you pay attention to old photos of the hotel (displayed by the hotel reception), you will... More
