Why stay and enjoy Nuquí with us?

Below you can see a few reasons why our guests continue to choose and recommend us. 
  1. El Cantil Ecolodge has earned its reputation as being Nuquí's best hotel, not only for its infrastructure but for its excellent service, food, strategic location and kind staff.
  2. About 45% of our guests are foreigners; due to the quality of our service and the serenity of the hotel's surroundings, foreigners comprise almost half our visitors. 
  3. The warmth and good treatment towards our guests, good food, good service and sustainable interaction with nature are our raison d'être; they are the principles that dictate our service. 
  4. We have an acclaimed and exquisite seafood menu, but when we have guests with other dietary needs the hotel will prepare a menu according to their diet. You just need to tell us a week before your arrival for logistical reasons. 
  5. After hikes, our guests are welcomed back with cold, fresh lemonade or natural fresh juice to revitalise them after their encounter with nature. We understand the importance of small details and you won't be charged extra for this; it's all part of our service. 
  6. Fresh fruit will be taken to your room in the morning when you wake up. 
  7. Our beds are all equipped with high quality mattresses and each bed has an individual mosquito net. One of our employees will come by your room at 6pm to set up your net for your comfort. 
  8. The hotel has 110 W electric power in the restaurant where you will be able to recharge your batteries between 6-10 pm. This energy is created by a Pelton micro turbine generator, which produces the smallest possible impact on our environment. The rest of the hotel has oil lamps which give the ambiance a romantic and warm feeling.
