The location Is great. The rooms are confortable and the ones on with the sea view on the highest floors are really good. The service is average for a 5 star hotel. An event has been organized during our two night stay and it involved all the hotel with in some moment even in the night music with an excessive...

The hotel is nice and they have great rooms, but they use the place as an event center, so if you want to sleep without noise, you are in the wrong place. Great pool and breakfast. you are literally by the sea.

It's a very nice place. They have a great Breakfast and a really good Buffet on Weekends, with seafood, Ceviche, pasta and much more. The room is very comfortable, nice bed and an ok bathroom. There is some big rocks surrounding the hotel making the sea sound very present inside the room, if you dislike it, let them know it....

Pros: This hotel has a nice view, a beautiful pool area and a good restaurant. The staff was also pleasant (except for some receptionists). Cons: The rooms had very limited storage space for clothing and the bathrooms could use an update on the ventilating system. Our card keys rarely worked and the elevators suffered glitches. Most people traveled there by...

We had a beautiful sea view from our little balcony overlooking the beach. The room was very comfortable, with a huge bed and restful wooden furniture. The bathroom was rather small, with only a little shower, and not much room to turn round in. The downstairs bar has really lovely views, as does the dining room. Breakfast was fairly good...

Fabulous location, built over the Pacific with waves crashing on the rocks below the view deck. Spacious, newly renovated rooms with all the bells and whistles and super comfy King bed. One of the best hotel buffet breakfast spreads, fresh fruit and juice, good coffee, bacon, sausages, omeletes to order, and all the other usual breakfast goodies.

It's a good and quiet place to make a stop, a break, after Colchane, the park, or San Pedro de l'Atacama, after the high altitude front of the pacifique with a lot of birds. The hotel is front of the beach, and there is a swimming pool front of the Pacifique. Good place

Gavina Sens is a simple, but clean comfortable contemporary property located on a peninsula jutting into the ocean. We had an ocean view room facing South which afforded a panoramic view of the bay, beach, surfers and divers. Falling asleep to the surf crashing on the rocks below is very relaxing. I had requested an iron and board be delivered...
