Absolutely surprised by the place and the top quality of the hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was another surprised: stayed at El Muelle suite and it just couldn't be any bigger and with a better view. Everything we asked for. Just one minor improvement recommendation for the hotel: the food at the restaurant was good but... More

Our stay at Las Balsas was over the top wonderful in all aspects - rooms, service, views, amenities ... and, especially, the food. This hotel well deserves its Relais & Châteaux status. Attention to detail is assured by the friendly and professional staff - from Nacho at the front desk and Juan Pablo at reservations to the kitchen and room... More

Outstanding menu with very tasty dishes. I loved the trout carpaccio with strawberries, unusual and fresh, my husband had the tempura style prawn on a bed of a delicious pear/cucumber/ avocado concoction. The confit of lamb was to die for! and the chocolate tastings sinful. All told a wonderful expereince looking out onto the lake. The service was very good... More

Finally, after all my sour reviews I can say: Excellent! I'm quite picky in hotels, but Las Balsas is really the one to compliment. Fantastic place on the lake shore, peaceful, pleasant homy atmosphere, cosy rooms, helpful staff, delicious dishes at the restaurant (a tip for ladies - give up your diet, you should try everything. it's really worth it!)....

A most luxurious and magnificent hotel, right on the water, with a lovely sand beach and the Andes Mountains in the distance. What could be better? Well, the staff is perfect, the food delicious, the building warm and charming. The rooms are a bit small but beautifully appointed and the spa is great. An absolutely delightful spot in a majestic... More

We picked our car up from Bariloche Airport at 10pm which was unfortunate as our flight had been delayed which meant driving the 60 miles in darkness. As it was our first experience of driving in Argentina, on unlit roads and not really knowing where we were going we found it pretty hard to find the lodge. We called them... More

This is the perfect relaxation spot on this planet. Close to the "end of the world" an oasis of tranquility and hospitality. A perfect experience making one feel at home from the beginning to the end. I cannot find words to describe the location at the shores of the lake. Simply breathtaking. The tastefully furbished estate and the excellent personalized... More

To be truthful, my experience in this hotel exceeded my expectations. The service is amazing, which is hard to find in Argentina. We caught a fish on a boat ride they organized for us, 15 hours before departure, and the kitchen was happy to cook it, it was delicious. As far as the food goes, it is delicious. The only... More

My wife and I stayed at Las Balsas while on our honeymoon and could not have been happier. We were welcomed into the hotel and told to make ourselves at home, and that's truly what this place did. World class service paired with some of the best food we had on our trip, extremely well-appointed rooms, free wifi and spectacular... More

Gorgeous, small property in northern Patagonia. We flew into Bariloches from Buenos Aires and drove for about 45-60 minutes to the hotel. The town of Villa La Angostura is small but has a few shops and restaurants. Las Balsas is secluded and quiet. The rooms are small and comfortable. Front desk, spa and food first class. The hotel is situated... More
