The Dreams heralds a new era of high end, luxury accommodation in Punta Arenas. Designed to cater for the large cruise ships of the Pacific and the smaller cruises around the Cape Horn, they have really thought of everything; stunning views, outstanding rooms, facilities and a casino. It is certainly not for those that are looking for the intimacy of somewhere smaller, but it is probably the pick of the bunch at the moment.

As you enter the cavernous entrance hall is it certainly not apparent where you should head to check in, such is the size and scale of this hotel....but this is also part of its charm in our book. There is a feeling of total anonymity that allows you the run of the place without feeling watched or put upon in any way.

Each of the 81 rooms, has stunning views out over the bay or the surrounding town and has all of the features you could ask for in a modern hotel...wifi, satellite tv, bathroom with facilities and exceptionally comfortable bedding.

On top of this, the hotel has a "sky bar" from which to really take in the views out to the ocean, a full casino, 2 contemporary restaurants, a wonderful infinity pool, and a fully equipped gym.

As you can tell, if you are after a modern and fresh feeling hotel in and around Punta Arenas then this is certainly where we would recommend. It is true that it does lack a certain, personal feel, but it does tick a great many boxes. The only major drawback that we would note is that it is probably targeted at the cruise market too much for our liking...for the type of customer that will be staying a night or two and then re-bording. For those that are looking to hop off a cruise and then head up to the Torres del Paine, we would suggest taking a look at some of the exceptional properties in either the National Park or the smaller town of Puerto Natales to the north.

Loaded with facilities, stunning views, high quality rooms

Bit anonymous, expensive, away from the main square
