Fodor's Review

This beautiful, colonial-style hotel on the Plaza de Armas may look historic, but it was actually built in 2000 with all the comforts you expect from a modern hotel in a historic style. Behind the yellow facade, fixed with wooden columns, are Spanish-style arches, hand-painted tiles, antique reproductions, and stained glass. Guest rooms are small but attractive, with orange stucco walls and French doors that open onto balconies. The hotel occupies a whole block so rooms vary in views and street noise. At the center of the complex is a creek crossed by wooden footbridges and a curvaceous pool surrounded by lush foliage. The complex also includes the AlmaCruz Shop, which sells exquisite handcrafted goods, a wine shop stocked with Colchagua Valley wines and Espíritu de Colchagua liqueurs, the most popular casino in Colchagua, and a museum (that features a re-enactment of a mammoth attack). The hotel spa offers a range of treatments, including wine therapy.
