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.

If the Palacio Del Sol wasn't made out of salt it would still be an amazing option. Located directly off the Uyuni Salt Flats the hotel has magnificent views of the fkats. The interior is very tastefully decorated. The rooms are spacious. There is a dining room and a snack bar with sandwiches. Looking forward to trying the pool.

Impressively! Very good! The people is very kindly! The hotel is not new but try to respond you in what you want! The cleaning is very good! The restaurant is not good! But you have a choice to eat at the bar! The sandwiches is regular! The program to go to Salar is great! It is personal and you can change if you want in the middle of the excursion! I recommended!

We came from 2 Awasi Hotels, now the "Palacio de Sel": it all started with a more than snotty reception, haughty, not interested at all, no smiles, just as stony-faced as the salt. Then the hot water has been, to put it mildly, luke warm and this here where it can be very cold. The gratuity in the bath comprised 1 shampoo and 1 conditioner. When we asked reception they said we could buy additional goods at the shop...the safe box was closed, so we needed a new code, why this has not been checked before remains a mystery. We also demanded a brush, twice, since our clothes have become dusty. The room, however, was spacey. To sum it up: I expext a much better customer treatment and a better equipped room, mind you, we booked the Hannan Suite, downright lousy, cannot recommend.

I paid $150 USD for a deluxe room that was advertised as having a view of the attraction. Instead I was given a room with a view of a trash heap. They said I could upgrade my room for 50 dollars more. They treat you really bad here. I would never stay here again.

This is definitely the best hotel in the area and also the best for access to the Salt Flats, your right next to it and don’t have to rely on transport to take you there. It’s a beautiful hotel with nice rooms and great service. You can walk onto the salt flats anytime of day or hire a bike from the hotel to go in further. The sunsets and sunrises are spectacular with amazing colours. Highly, highly recommended!!

I stayed here with some friends while visiting the Uyuni Salt Flats. This hotel, and indeed this entire area, is amazing! The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the hotel itself is incredibly unique, having been largely constructed of cut salt blocks. The roof of my bedroom was a dome made of salt blocks! The amenities are wonderful - restaurant, lounge area (pool table), spa, fabulous swimming pool…everything is top-notch! We had fabulous guides take us out on the flats each day for wonderful meals and some fun entertainment making creative photos! So glad I chose to stay here!

the Palacio de Sal Hotel is is beautiful large unique hotel, which is partially made of salt. the rooms are nice, but the shower is a little tight, but it does the trick. it has a large bar, restaurant, great service, and an indoor pool. the Meals are severed buffet style and the food is good. they have long beautiful hallways in which you can get lost. so just look up at the hallway junctions and check the numbers and exit sign. a unique experience!!!

We stayed at the hotel on May 23rd 2022. The hotel was hosting some type of business meeting with about 50 people. While all the hotel staff wore mask, and some even wore gloves, guest were not required to wear masks even though it is hotel policy that all guest wear masks in ALL public places. Each area like the bar and restaurant had occupancy limits. These were not followed. When I asked about why the hotel did not ask guest to follow the policy the management would not answer. (VIA Whats APP) they explained the policy but would not explain why they did not follow it. The 50 unmasked people congregated in the lobby most of the evening. Or they would move from the bar (limit if 25 people) or go to the restaurant, limit 61 people. Making it impossible for other guest to use

I stayed at both salt hotels look at the other salt hotel for my review. I will compare each attribute on how I came up with my rating. Check in process - 5. The process was smooth and easy. Staff - 5. Everyone we came in contact with was helpful and polite. At both hotels it was a mix of the staffs English skills, but we are in a Spanish speaking country and do not expect the staff to know English. Room - We had two rooms, a double, and a single. Hotel Palacio de Sal - I give the room a 0 (ZERO)! Hotel Palacio de Sal - The best description I can give of the room is an Army Barrack. You walked into the room and there are two single beds each pushed against the wall with about three feet between the beds to walk. There are NO windows to the outside world. I am not

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.
