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.

We had the best day ever at the Palacio de Sal at the shores of the salt flats. Definitely the most elegant hotel in the area, you can tell it is the diary salt hotel in the world not only because of its installations but also because of its marvelous service. It is worth to try its food at the restaurant, drinks at the bar and to stop by the spa while there.

The hotel is best located on the fringe of the salt flat only about 20 min from the airport. The location makes it very easy to walk to the salt flat or start a tour of the salt flat. Palacio de sal is unique in the way that a lot of its structure is made of salt cubes from the salar the uyuni. All areas nicely are geared to the salt theme and it that sense are very special. Rooms are roomy, have nice salar views, ok bathrooms and a dome of salt cubes above the bed. The bed however is very uncomfortable. We did not sleep well at all They have a great spa area with al little pool with best views of the flat. The bar area is great especially at around sun set time which creates an almost unreal and great atmosphere in the bar. Breakfast and restaurant offer are good and the

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.

This is a superbly designed hotel. It's original, the lobby and corridors are exceptional. The lounges are comfortable. Best of all are the views and go outside in the evening and there is brilliant night sky in summer. This is also the first hotel I've stayed in in many years and many countries where the bedrooms are not redesigned around a television. Having no TV in the middle of one of the more remote places in the world is fabulous. Other hotels should follow. The food was good. Omelette cooked to order at breakfast, nice buffet. For a place so remote the quality of the food was good. I'd brought warm clothing because of the altitude. I didn't need it as bedding was plentiful and warm and the radiators in bathroom and main room were on. You also get complimentary bottle of

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!

This unique hotel on the edge of the salt plains was quite amazing. At first glance it seems a simple design until you realize most of the hotel is itself constructed from salt. My room was spacious with a lounge area, writing desk etcetera. The bathroom was again very large with heated towel rails and luxurious toiletries. The bed comfort was excellent.The mineral pool and spa was divine. The was a gym and massage salon for those so inclined. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the restaurant had a n extensive menu of local and international cuisine. Free Wifi was excellent. Two glorious days there, could have spent more. The staff were exceptional. Owned by Hidalgo Tours nothing was left to chance. Touring the salt plains with their excellent Tour Guide Victor Rodrigues

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.

An oasis in the Uyuni / Salar area. Well appointed with courteous staff. Food, whilst not gourmet, was good, fresh and plentiful. Only wished we had stayed an extra day to fully appreciate the facilities and the stunning views. My only and minor concern is that there are no closets or drawers to put clothes, so one has to live out of suitcase or put clothes etc on the floor.

Overall the restaurant, room, bar, wifi and overall facilities were very good to return to after spending the days touring the salt flats. Check-in service was very good and they provided business centre services such as scanning documents so they can be emailed. Restaurant service was very sincere and helpful with English-speaking staff, with buffets for breakfast and dinner. Overall a nice oasis in the salt flats.
