The Hotel Antumalal has something that you can never take away: a stunningly beautiful view and peaceful grounds to match. Walking into the hotel lobby is breathtaking, with crystal clear views of Lago Villarica and the surrounding mountains. The rooms have a cabin-y feel, even down to the smell, which matches the forest surroundings. The bed was really comfortable, and opening the windows wide open to hear the birds and feel the breeze is magical. The scenery was so stunning that I have to give the Antumalal 5 stars.
However.... the hotel could use a small, aesthetic renovation. The bathroom is not 5 star hotel quality and some small details weren't spotlessly clean like price would demand. I also thought the breakfast was a bit underwhelming. It was just fine.
Overall, the idyllic setting and views make it all worth it. We did not want to leave. The Lakes region of Chile is marvelous, and this is an excellent place to stay if you can get in at the right price.More
