Lugar de Descanso translates to “resting place,” and the Huacachina hostel lives up to its name. Families on the go can get some rest when they’re not exploring everything Peru has to offer. Spacious Family Rooms are available, sleep five and come with a private bathroom. Larger groups can take advantage of the 10-person dormitory style room with a shared bathroom. One child under four stays free, but there is no space for cribs at the hostel. The onsite restaurant serves homestyle dishes and a complimentary breakfast is provided. Kids will enjoy the indoor pool and the library.

This place is the best place to eat right off the lagoon! The service is amazing and the food is delicious. There are a ton of options and the bartender Johan is the best. We had the best pisco sour so far in all of Peru.
I ate here with two friends. All of us ordered beer carpaccio as a starter. My friends main meal came before we even had the starters. When the carpaccio finally came after almost one hour it wasn’t served with any Parmesan cheese, olive oil or anything. Just meet and 2 slices of lime. The meat was still frozen.
One of us had the burger which tasted good, but the fries where really bad.
I had the spaghetti Bolognese which was the worst I’ve ever had. It tasted almost sour. My other friend had spaghetti Alfredo, which tasted like nothing, he asked for a spoon which he got 20 minutes later, when he was done eating.
To sum it up: bad service, long wait and food that didn’t taste good.
