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.

Didn't know what to expect but this proved one of the highlights of our trip. Set in the middle of nowhere this is the jumping off point for excursions across the 10,000 sq meters of the Uyuni Salt Flats or desert. The hotel is a stunning building, constructed mainly of salt bricks and walls, with a beautiful interior including lots of wood. Sadly, we were not so impressed with the service and the restaurant was a big disappointment, serving so so buffet each night. Breakfast in the same large room was much better with wide array of food beautifully presented. We ate snacks in the bar area second evening which afforded stunning views of the sunset. We were not impressed on checking out when a reception staffer asked us whether we had packed the soap dish from our room (reported

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

This is by far one of the most unique places I have ever been! If you're in this part of the world, you have to at least stop by. The area is stunning. It's worth the views. We unfortunately were visiting during maintenance on the pool and they seemed to be quite short staffed. Other than those things, we loved it.

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

The Palacio del Sal is more than just an hotel it’s an experience. Located at the edge of the Salar de Uyuni it has a felling of “end of the world” location. Yet the hotel is truly a 5-stars with great service, super nice pool and comfortable room. We only wishes we had stayed longer to relax there after visiting the Salar.

The hotel is gorgeous. It is well maintained and the service is fantastic. Melissa was a great example. She went out of her way to help is in the restaurant. The hotel gave us free drink and a welcome dinner along with breakfast were included in the fee. The hotel is made out of salt bocks which is unique. We got rooms with a great view. The main desk held our luggage while we toured the salar. The salt desert is impressive which coupled with this hotel gives you an unforgettable experience. I’d love yo come back and spend more time. Could not take enough pictures. The night sky is completely light contamination free which give you an opportunity to take pictures at night as well.

It is a hotel building with salt, in the border of Uyuni’s Salar, just the fact that it is a Salt’s hotel is amazing, but it is a five stars hotel, what means it is very comfortable, and everything works. You can see the Salar from the hotel and it is amazing.

I wouldn’t stay at this hotel again even if it were given to me for free. This hotel is waaaaay far off from anything close to a 5 star. I wouldn’t even give this 2 stars. To put things into context: - Receptionist was soo rude. The rudest I’ve ever come across actually. Without even greeting us all she said was: Check in is at 3. We went to have a bite at the bar which was pathetic with pathetic options. When we went back at 3pm, only one room was ready despite them having a stack of room keys laid out on their desks -The room was tiny and moldy. The bathroom door wouldn’t even close. The beds were so uncomfortable and had a hole in the middle -This hotel is NOT safe. 2 people entered our room whilst we were there. The hotel did absolutely nothing (neither to apologise nor to

Where do I even begin…our stay started with being welcomed by receptions with “CHECK IN IS AT THREE”…no hello, how was your journey, welcome to palacio de sal NOTHING. Didn’t even offer or suggest we hang around at the bar - we had to ask if there was anywhere we can sit and grab a bite. Next, the bar - food options are limited, portions are a joke. When we finally were allowed to check in we still had to argue to get the second room because apparently it wasn’t ready yet (despite it being 3 pm). When we eventually got the rooms, both were sub-par at best. No amenities, one room didn’t have curtains, the other had a bathroom door that would close. The cherry on top was when we had two sets of guests walk into one of the rooms with keys that gave them access to our room. When

The hotel is very beautiful, as seen in the pictures. However, neither the service in the front desk nor the food served at the cafeteria correspond to a 5 star hotel. Dinner is buffet style and was average; breakfast is also buffet style, unfortunately, mine was cold. In spite of this, it is the best hotel in the area.
