We took a day trip from Buenos Aires. Left early in the morning and it took about 2 hours to get there. It was June, so there weren't as many people there as they would have in the warmer months, but that was great for us. We started with a snack of empanadas, then had time to go out and... More

Stayed at the habitaciones Coloniales (booked 4 different rooms as there were 8 of us). Found out overnight that cash was missing from 3 different wallets in 3 locked rooms. They asked for cash payment and safes were not available in the rooms. Completely ruined the experience for all of us, and we are still waiting on their response. Not... More

Though we didn't call it our home for the night, we enjoyed ourselves with all the friendly staff especially the multi-talented gauchos who had to sing, dance, joke besides performing their fine riding skills. Food was hearty and tasty, and everyone enjoyed lots of laughs as the gauchos went around inviting audience to dance along The ranch, performances and jokes... More

I am still feeling the leftover relaxation buzz from this magical place. Everything was perfect. The rooms where beautiful and comfortable. The food, amazing. The grounds a magical ( can't help but use that word again) landscape. And of course the gorgeous Castle and wonderful staff. We went this past weekend which is winter here, cold and rainy. But it...

This is a unique venue, a genuine castle with beautiful original features (each room/suite is completely different) antique furniture, yet with bathrooms/ensuites for comfort. The grounds are extensive and beautiful, especially the "wee brig".....unfortunately the infestation of mosquitos makes it difficult to enjoy these facilities, we survived the bugs of the Amazon River only to be overcome by these insect...

The Estancia La Candelaria is not a 5 star hotel but it has its very special charm. You are staying in a real medieval castle which is great. All rooms are clean and quiet, the beds are perfect. The park around the castle is huge, great for romantic strolls. Also kids that love to play outside, will have the time... More

Upon arrival at 6:00 PM, there was much confusion, no rooms ready and no one who could figure out what to do. We were told to have "tea" since no one seemed to be expecting us- a group of 24?? Tea was in an open air pavilion with dirty tables, mosquitoes and dogs roaming. There was no hot water and... More
