This place is a beautiful gem on the edge of lake in a very quiet area outside of Bariloche. Although the room we stayed in was tiny, we spent very little time in the room. The service was outstanding, the food was the best we had on our South America trip, and the hikes nearby were wonderful.

I was there when it just opened the hotel almost 30 years ago and eventhougth it has a new owner it still keeps its reputation. The food is... More

Hotel sits on a spectacular lakeside site with beach and dock. Beautiful wood detail throughout the hotel. Restaurant was always excellent. Staff gave great advice on available local experiences and was invaluable in making my trip enjoyable..

This place is amazing! From the moment you arrive everyone is attentive and the food is out of this world. Dont miss the pool, the view of the lake while relaxing is a must. This is the place to be if you want to relax and forget about the world.

My wife and I had lunch here at recommendation of a friend in Buenos Aires. We were not hotel guests. The outdoor setting is stunning. Food and service were superb. Servers spoke English. We had trout, salad, and soup. Pricey, but reasonable in US dollars compared with similar fine restaurants in North America.

Incredibly beautiful, peaceful, private, amazing service, devine food and exceptionally friendly and knowledgable staff. We had the great opportunity to spend Christmas at Las Balsas with my husband and three small children and enjoyed a scenic special evening with live music at sunset, followed by drinks and delicious long dinner. The property was brimming with flowers, and spectacular views. Most... More

Wow. This hotel is just great. The staff are fantastic, the location is to die for and the food out of this world. We were greeted with the news that we were being upgraded to a fabulous room with the most amazing views over the lake, a lovely welcome drink and a cheery smile - can't ask for much more.... More

We are adventure travelers, preferring to spend every possible minute exploring/hiking/paddling. For the first time ever we found ourselves wanting to be at our hotel!! We watched the sun rise over the lake with fresh coffee in bed, enjoyed baskets of pastries and hot food for breakfast, and actually raced home from our hikes to soak in the jacuzzi with... More
