Hotel Tierra Chiloe, Western Patagonia

Inspected By Experience Chile
Approved By Experience Chile


ExperienceChile.Org will arrange all-inclusive programs based at Hotel Tierra Chiloe that will allow you to explore and see many areas of Chiloe Island.

In line with the other Tierra properties in key destinations of interest in Chile, the Tierra Chiloe offers, currently, in our opinion, the best level of accommodation on Chiloe Island.

The main building is an architectural delight mixing raw cement and practical modernity with cosy, natural wood; along with spacious common areas and guest rooms, all with large windows through which to admire the mix of tidal inlets, wetlands and rural countryside.

The service is professional and personal. The food menu is tasty and creative along with quality wine options. Breakfast, too, is full of healthy and delicious alternatives.

Ideally, if selecting to include Tierra Chiloe in your itinerary, you should go for one of the all-inclusive options. There is nothing better than to go out each day on an excursion to visit and explore parts of Chiloe Island and then return to a welcoming and comfortable base. Here at ExperienceChile.Org we will encourage you to let us include Tierra here, and in any of the locations where a Tierra exists, and we will add to your itinerary a benefit of some kind.


The Tierra brand is all about superseding the expectation. Each of the Tierra properties emits an innovative, unique, and surprising structure that, from the moment of check-in, will put the guest into an emotion of intrigue which only adds to the overall enjoyment of your stay.

At Tierra Chiloe the modern, boutique lodge fulfils the element of positive surprise.

With a modest 24 guest rooms the staff can maintain a personal level of service and guests will not feel they are part of the “masses”.

The location of the lodge is in a remote hill side of the Rilan peninsula. On one side is the channel between the peninsula and the Island of Lamuy, then slightly to the right of the hotel on the sea channel side, is the wet lands of Pullao where a variety of birds come down to feed.

In front of the property are small, grass-covered knolls, or tiny hills and a small wood.

The interior of the lodge is warmly lit, furniture is chosen to be comfortable and “natural”, and then there is the central open, copper fireplace that creates a central, cosy ambience.

The lodge is a base from where to explore the places of interest and cultural aspects of Chiloe Island as well as participate in activities such as horse riding, trekking and boat navigations to other islands.

Hotel Castro, Castro, Chiloe Island, Western Patagonia

Inspected By Experience Chile


The Hotel Castro was formally known as the Hosteria Castro, but has endured a renovation, along with guest-room extension, resulting in an upgrade to full “hotel” status.

It is a modern building just off the main Castro Plaza. Rooms are decorated and furnished to a decent level and the hotel also offers a small indoor pool and spa.


The Hotel Castro is a “practical” hotel offering 49 guest rooms in total, 29 rooms in the standard category and 20 suites. All rooms with central heating, en-suite bathrooms, TV and Wi-Fi.

The 20 suites are a newer extension of the original hotel and these are more spacious and better decorated than the standard rooms. These rooms also enjoy a view to the Castro fiord and peninsula opposite.

There is a restaurant that offers many options but specialises in sea food.

The Hotel Centro de Ocio, Castro, Chiloe, Western Patagonia


The Hotel Centro Ocio is a small, rustic, boutique-style lodge sitting amid its own 20-hectare site of land. The hotel offers 11 guest suites in various accommodation options, nice views over the Castro fiord and back to the city of Castro, from its high-ground position on the Rilan Peninsula. It enjoys, too, access to its own beach and woods, and offers excursions to all interesting places of interest throughout Chiloe Island as well as various activities.


The hotel also aims to be a self-sustainable operation and do all that they can to support rural life and nature. Processes have been implemented to reduce the environmental impact of running a hotel by way of recycling glass, plastics and cardboard and using organic waste to put back into the soil. And, where possible the hotel practices “fair trade” by checking up on suppliers to see if they follow fair trade guidelines in their processes.

The exterior as well as the interior occupies lots of natural wood to create a warm, cosy environment.

ExperienceChile.Org will arrange all-inclusive programs based at Centro Ocio that will allow you to explore and see many areas of Chiloe Island.


The emphasis of the Centro Ocio Hotel is to provide guests with a relaxing ambience, a place to rest and an opportunity to connect with nature and explore Chiloe Island.

Along with the personal service ethic, the accommodation is “warm and cosy”, with each guest room enjoying views down to the Castro channel, or fiord, and the surrounding gardens.

Hosteria Ancud, Chiloe, Western Patagonia

Inspected By Experience Chile


The Hotel Ancud, officially the “Hosteria Ancud”, hosteria meaning more of a simple level hotel, has been the principal accommodation site in Ancud for many years. The property enjoys a privileged position on high ground which, from the gardens and sea-side part of the hotel grounds, there is a nice view to the sea, which is great for sunsets.

The hotel bedrooms are at modest level, although the suite appears to be better. In addition to the 24 rooms there is a restaurant, bar and conference room.

The restaurant is lined, on one side, with large windows that open up the view to the sea.


The Hosteria Ancud offers 24 guest rooms. The hotel is located in a residential sector of Ancud, offering nice views to the sea from the garden.

This is a modest hotel, which is more like a lodge with its tree-log interior walls and stone-floored lobby.
