So much more than the world's first salt hotel: we are Palacio de Sal. On the shores of the majestic Salar de Uyuni -under an astonishing sky full of magnificent colours and stars- stands, bursting with historical significance, the Palacio de Sal (The Salt Palace). A haven of magical moments where every end of the day is the evidence of an irrefutable fact: no dream, however extraordinary it may seem, is ever diluted before it comes true.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Everything and everyone was great. We vacation often and this experience was beyond beautiful. The hotel, Palacio de Sal, has an amazing design and detail that was actually more impressive in person than the pictures.Which normally we find the opposite to be true. The pool and sauna had great views during the day but wish it was open later as we wanted to go again after our tour of the stars.. The staff were friendly and professional. The guide, Victor, was awesome as he provided us with information, history, and assistance taking great pictures of our adventures.

Paladin de sal is a beautiful hotel! The way it’s constructed and the amenities they offer like a pool, sauna and spa. Additionally, during their inclusive morning breakfast they were able to accommodate my gluten free/ dairy free diet-lifestyle. I was really grateful and thankful at the same time. The only thing that cost 1 star is that there was no hot water the night we stayed. So when in a cold place I had to take it back old school—boiled water with the in room kettle and got to washing :) it all worked out nonetheless. I definitely recommend this hotel. It’s absolutely stunning as well

Our experience at Hotel Palacio de Sal in March was absolutely incredible. Everything from the food to the staff and the sheer beauty and luxury of the hotel itself was something we won't forget. The next time we are back in Bolivia, we want to come and stay more than one night at this amazing place. The hospitality that we experienced was wonderful and we want to thank all of the staff for being so kind and helpful. We wanted to give a special shoutout to our server Robert in the dining room, who was wonderful the two times we dined there. We would not want to stay anywhere else when visiting the salt flats. While for some, this experience may be a splurge, I can guarantee it is worth the money. Gracias a todos al Hotel Palacio de Sal por la hospitalidad. Ojalá podamos volver pronto.

It's an beautiful and incredible place to stay. I Just would like to say i did't rate it 5 because i believe we hace excellent organic coffee in Bolivia, and the one i drunk on Palacio de Sal was a very bad coffee, very low quality and awfully toasted.
There are many of us coffee lovers and Bolivia really has unexpensive and delicious options of excellent coffee

The hotel is indeed beautiful and the facilities are wonderful, but our room wasn't so much a room as a closet - indeed, it was so small that there wasn't any room for a closet! So we had to leave our stuff on the floor or on chairs, and there was hardly space to move around. This may have been because the hotel was full, and normal rooms might be different. But I'd not go there again without verifying this point..
The spa was lovely.

Location is amazing. Staff is very friendly, especially the ladies at reception and all the staff in restaurant and bar. People usually have a full program with excursions when they come here, I had one day with no program and was able to enjoy the spa and hotel facilities.

I had an incredible stay at this hotel! The staff was beyond helpful and made me feel so welcome throughout my visit. Our waiter Carlos was very friendly and helpful , he went above and beyond to ensure we were well taken care of, making our meals even more enjoyable. The rooms were spotless, offering the utmost comfort and the sauna was amazing. Highly recommended! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Best hotel by the salt flats, by far. The only really good hotel in the area. Food and service are excellent. The rooms are very nice, but chose your room carefully as some have windows views, some have interior windows and some have a very hot sunroom (which is fine for the king rooms, not good for the doubles). Hot water is great (other hotels in area have issues). Separate shower a big plus. Really the best place to stay period

This is a very original hotel made of salt , next to Salario del Sal. Rooms are decent, though a little outdated. as were the bathrooms.We had the dinner buffet there for 28$/ person and the food was very good. We were pleasantly surprised by Carlos, the restaurant manager who sent us a complimentary bottle of Bolivian wine.
The SPA wasn’t crowded when we were there and I had a facial for 48$, that was excellent.
The staff is what makes this hotel an excellent choice if you want to visit the Solar. Everybody was pleasant, helpful, smiling and genuinely kind. Not enough words to tell what a difference that made. From Xavier at the reception, Rodrigo the waiter , Carlos, they provided excellent service.

Was expecting a fairly basic hotel. But the Palico de Sal is a stunning building, beautifully constructed, with interesting architecture and superb rooms.
Easy check in and warm welcome, room was large, well appointed with great bathroom, good shower and a good nights sleep!
Views across the salt flats and stunning sun set from most of the rooms.
Large restaurant with buffet dinner and breakfast offering a wide selection of very good food.
Great service and easy check out.
Having stayed in Uyuni before,I would certainly recommend coming out to the salt hotel- a great placebo stay!

The hotel offers transfers to and from uyuni. However if you are unsure of your arrival time simply take a taxi. It’s probably a 20 min ride. Be sure to negotiate the price with the taxi driver in advance

You can easily book a tour organized by local tour operator through Veltra for instance. I booked a private tour therefore, a car with driver and guide came to the hotel to pick us up and drop off but if you are looking for joining a group tour, it seems that you need to reach the meeting point by yourself which could be distance from the hotel.
