Naghuilan is a peaceful riverside hotel with a Germanic touch with a summer pool and a decking terrace by the water.
Hotel Naguilan occupies a modern building with a German-style facade on the tranquil banks of the river Valdivia, about a kilometre from the centre of the picturesque town. It makes much of its location, with decking right out on the river frontage where you can relax in a lounger on a summer's day. The bright guest rooms have simple classic furnishings while some of them have a pleasant terrace and lovely river views.
Gleaming polished wood features throughout much of the property, especially in the restaurant, which has huge picture windows offering river views and you may also eat out on the decking in good weather. There’s a covered semi-al-fresco rooftop terrace and a seasonal outdoor pool in the grounds.

Each separate part of the trip was excellent. Patagonia most memorable for scenery and Easter Island for history and scenery.RR, Aberdeen
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
Highlight: The Atacama DesertBL, Tunbridge wells
Highlights: The Explora hotel experience and the Perito Moreno glacierBT, Surbiton
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
Highlights?: Flying over the Andes Getting close to the Glacier in Patagonia View from Costanero Tower in Santiago The list goes onDW, Winchester
Most memorable experiences: "First sight of San Pedro. Hiring our own car and being alone with the flamingos on the salt lagoons. The Milky Way in the Atacama night sky. Chairlift through the mist on Osorno Volcano. Mountain and glacier views in Patagonia. Pisco sour with everything. The Chilean people - always ready to smile."DA, Northallerton
Highlights?: Too many to mention ! Great mix of culture, sights and experiences. Love the inclusion of a horse ride from The Singular in Patagonia.HJ,
Most Memorable Moment?: The stunning beauty of Torres del Paine ; we were very lucky with the weather in Patagonia Our estancia brief visit, en route, was also very nice.RL, Solihull
Patagonia- exceeded very high expectations. JLA were great.AH, Northampton
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
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
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
Highlights?: Patagonia Camp and Torres del Paine National Park.CD, Shepton mallet
Chile felt safe and modest, a delight to visit.NH, Bridgewater
Highlights?: Afternoon trek in the Moon Valley Atacama to see the sunset. It was magical. Patagonian 12K trek to Grey Glacier and boat trip to face of glacier. Rapa Nui to see the Moai at the quarry and Tongariki.GB, Lytham st. annes
Highlight?: Difficult to separate a sunny, windless clear day at Torres del Paine ( plus several others nearly as good). And deep snow in the Altiplano round Miscanti lakes. So good even the drivers were taking photos. Both quite excellent.DH, Milnthorpe
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
Highlights: "Watching the Milky Way in Elquis Valley."MA, Lancaster
Highlights: “I went to Chile mainland without any knowledge and was overwhelmed. The geology was stunning and range of scenery amazing”PC, Galashiels
Highlight?: The Grey GlacierJC, Ipswich
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.AK, Stoke Newington
Highlight: "Easter Island for it's uniqueness and remoteness. Excellent wines and food in Mendoza and Casablanca Valley in Chile. The Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires was spectacular. The friendliness of people in Colonia."JR, Grimsby
Mount Fitz Roy and Los Torres, particularly the Pliegue tumblado walk.DS, Leatherhead
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
The whole holiday was memorable but Patagonia Camp and the walk to the Torres del Paine was the best. Absolutely breath taking. We wished we had stayed one more night here.CB, Tonbridge
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
Most Memorable Moment: "Too many to mention!Perhaps Champions parade in Rio - front row seats - fabulous! May be Torres del Paine - fabulous hotel Tierra Patagonia- outstanding scenery. Memorable moment -perhaps driving around Lake Llanquihue gradually seeing the mist clear to beautiful clear blue skies and lake and seeing The Osorno Volcano appear with low cloud drifting across its centre just as we across a very pretty lakeside café with no one there and being able to sit in the warm sunshine quite alone and enjoy the most spectacular view."JM, Wantage
I loved the desert and my husband liked Patagonia. The lunch in the Casablanca wine valley was outstanding.SD,
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
