Unique hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Apr 2020
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 service staff is very friendly and helpful. The rest of the crew is equally friendly and helpful in arranging all sorts of things.

      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 water. Staff were wonderful, helpful and friendly. Rooms were very clean.
      I've read some of the terrible reviews and what they say about food, staff and price of beer are not true many of their comments are the result of their lack of planning when travelling and ignorance. Don't come to places like Uyuni if you expect a perfect holiday. Yes Uyuni is dusty, dirty and cold at night. It's 4,000m up on the altiplano.

      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 Alvarez, and driver Reynaldo Yanez was a sheer joy. Watching the sun set sipping a wine and enjoying an array of tasty snacks made for the perfect end of the day. Thank you one and all.
