Dreams Patagonia is a modern hotel with contemporary guest rooms, restaurant, Sky Bar and casino in the centre of Coyhaique, Patagonia.
Coyhaique is the capital of the scantily populated Aisen region in Chilean Patagonia. It's a pleasant, planned town which is a good base for visits to the glaciers, forests and waterfalls of this remote region.
Hotel Dreams is probably the best hotel in town, situated in a convenient spot close to the centre. It’s a modern hotel where the guest rooms are furnished in a contemporary style but feature décor with the browns and greys of the Patagonian stone and timber used in traditional buildings in the area. There’s a cosy, rustic-style restaurant serving some dishes typical of Patagonia while the Sky Bar on an upper floor offers views and a Sushi menu.
The hotel has a fitness centre with sauna and pool, and a weak Wifi signal. Coyhaique is an isolated region where the population has to make its own entertainment, so there is a casino on site and regular light entertainment including gigs and discos.

Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult! Vulcan Osorno, Moon Valley (even if not part of the arranged itinerary!), Tatio Geysers, Easter Island statues...RW, High peak
We have wanted to visit Chile for a very long time. You arranged a very special holiday for us, which gave us a wonderful taste of this amazing country.PCA, Riding Mill
I loved the desert and my husband liked Patagonia. The lunch in the Casablanca wine valley was outstanding.SD,
Highlights: "Watching the Milky Way in Elquis Valley."MA, Lancaster
Highlight?: Patagonia campMM, Southsea
Three highlights: the trip over the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza with its links to San Martin's epic journey to liberate Chile and Peru in the 19th century; the three Neruda houses in Chile; and the Museo del Barro in Asuncion (Paraguay).JRF, Cambridge
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
Most memorable experience: "Sailing across the Magelllan Straits and getting off on Cape Horn. This was the key reason for my trip which was motivated by a dim and distant history lesson when I was 12 years old. To think that these treacherous waters were navigated and discovered by sailors in wooden boats over 500 years ago has always been a magical thought. Doing it in the comfort of 21st century luxury was a much better option for me but to think that I have walked in the footsteps of Magellan and later Darwin is quite something else."TEB, Grays
Most memorable experience: "So much but probably Torres del Paine, breathtakingly beautiful and not crowded although it was the busiest part of the year. Also the friendliness of the people, and lack of hassle everywhere- the only place where there was a bit was in the fish market in Santiago, but even there it was very low key and the people were not at all pushy."MT, Henley-on-Thames
So many highlights- Tatio geyser, base of Torres del Paine walk, seeing puma and Easter Island memories for lifeHM, Bristol

Chile Best parts of the holiday: “Too many to name one but certainly Moon Valley, the salt lake lagoon, the Glacier at Torres de Paine”SJ, Welwyn
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult to pick one from so many but probably the walk up to Torres Del Paine Mirador - although it was a tough day.SB, Milnthorpe
Patagonia for its stark beauty, stunning snow covered mountains and tranquility.SB, Solihull
Highlight?: Easter Island - amazing place - very good food, hardly any tourists and extraordinary history/statues etc. We could easily have stayed an extra night there. I would strongly recommend hiring a car there. We also booked a snorkelling trip which was good.CK, Ashtead
Overall we have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.SJ, Welwyn
Highlight?: Touring Easter Island, it was a unique experience, one that is very different to many resort islands that one can visit worldwide.DM, Newcastle upon tyne

Most Memorable Moment: Cycling around Puerto Varas in Chile.JL, Studley
Chile felt safe and modest, a delight to visit.NH, Bridgewater
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the cruise or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten Celcius. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was standing in silence at the Pia Glacier. Our favourite guide was Cyril in Chiloe. He became a great friend and we had some lovely times together.RW, Paphos
