I went to El Venado not knowing too much about it but was recommended by a friend. After being there I cannot recommend it enough, it helped me a great deal to learn and improve my game. I had the pleasure of great company, beautiful locale, variety of horses (and Chukkers) for all skill levels! Stayed there for about 3... More

I was so excited to come to El Venado that I ended up having high expectations! However, without any efforts Federico, Ines, Julian and the rest of their team exceeded them easily. I felt part of their family during the whole 15 days of our stay. I also met great some great guests I'm going to meet again in the... More

I had an amazing time at El Venado! I recommend this place to anyone considering a polo vacation. Former pro polo player Federico “Fede” Cendoyo owns this beautiful and peaceful estancia, which has been in his family for generations. Fede, his wife Ines, his manager Stephi, and his entire staff have created a unique polo school that feels more like... More

When I booked my stay at El Venado, at the suggestion of a friend, I planned to stay for a week. My experience was so good that I returned the following week (after a short stay in Buenos Aires to watch the Argentine Open). The weather permitted polo almost every day and I settled into a magical rhythm of riding,... More

If you are reading this review, you are probably looking for a great polo vacation in Argentina. I have a good news for you. Your search is now over. I go to El Venado pretty much every year in the last decade. For the first few years, I went there for a "hard-core" polo. I wanted to play, play and... More

This place is just out of this world. A huge Estancia with idyllic facilities and amazing people. Fede and all El Venado crew are such geniune and welcoming people who will make you feel home and ensure your polo gets to the next level. Can't recommend it enough, and already looking forward to getting back!

El Venado is a truly amazing corner of the world, set amongst fields and fields of cattle and ponies the tranquility and beauty of the Estancia is unforgettable. Federico and his wife Ines are incredibly kind hosts that really care about everything from their house, the staff, the polo, their livestock and their guests experience!

Our stay at El Venado was far beyond our expectations. We loved it all: the traditional argentinian farm full of character with recently renovated facilities and exquisite cuisine, the polo experience with such a wonderful program and team, the kids activities and the dearest people. Big thank you Federico, Inés, Julián, Stephie, Juan & Family and the whole team for... More

I have been to stay at El Venado many times over the last 10+ years but only just found out they are listed on trip advisor. This is a family run working estancia with horses (a great polo breeding operation), cattle and crops, dating back well over a century by Federico's ancestors. A former pro, he runs a really well...

This trip was a total immersion polo experience, far beyond my expectations. The staff and owners could not have been friendlier and more welcoming, and made our comfort and enjoyment their top priority. The horses were phenomenal and every effort was made to match horses to riders' ability and personality. I had high hopes for this trip and in the... More
