To provide the hotel with your credit card information, or to make changes to your reservation dates, call +56 72 295 1545 or +56 72 295 1547. Use your reservation number as a reference when you call the hotel. Note that the phone will be answered in Spanish, but English speakers are on staff. Just politely ask "¿Habla Usted Ingles?" and carry on :)
