Fodor's Review

This beautiful, colonial-style hotel on the Plaza de Armas may look historic, but it's less than a decade old. Behind the yellow facade adorned with wooden columns are Spanish-style arches, hand-painted tiles, antique reproductions, and stained glass. Guest rooms are small but charming, with orange stucco walls and French doors that open onto balconies. Those in back are quieter and overlook a creek crossed by wooden footbridges and a curvaceous pool surrounded by lush

foliage. The complex includes the AlmaCruz Shop, which sells exquisite crafts goods, and a wine shop that offers Colchagua Valley wines and Espíritu de Colchagua liqueurs. The hotel spa offers a range of treatments, including wine therapy. This hotel suffered significant damage during the February 2010 earthquake and, as of this writing, was closed until further notice. Please check to see if the property has opened prior to your visit.
