Wake up to amazing views of Lake Nahuel Huapi! A small peaceful boutique hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms and the bath are huge with a fireplace. The rooms are clean but not entirely up to my standards, but clean enough. A very romantic place to just sit and sip on a good Malbec and waste the day away.... More

Very friendly staff who were only too pleased to help with any request. The hotel restaurant was very good, especially welcome when arriving late in the evening from Buenos Aires. Breakfast is served with views over the lake, fantastic when the weather is clear. Rooms are clean, roomy and with views over the lake, though for their basic rooms the... More

Beautiful sceneries of the lake but this depends on which level you are located. Food is decent, service is impeccable and bathroom/jacuzzi view is absolutely to die for. Finally the most was the sultan size bed that made us slept like babies.

Looking at previous reviews, we wonder whether our experience was because we came in the low season. We had some (though not all) similar experiences to those of the last reviewer. On the plus side, the location is beautiful. Also, the receptionist who doubled as bartender and waiter was delightful and very helpful. On the negative side, other parts of... More

Based on other reviews, my husband and I booked this hotel after 2 wonderful nights in Bariloche. What a disappointment in comparison. To begin with the staff was indifferent when we checked in, the elevator was not working and the promise of help with the luggage never materialized. The room had a bed and a bench...no other seating area, not... More

After a week fishing 5 hrs south,we chose El Faro as our respite in beautiful Villa Angostura. The arrival down the drive is breathtaking, as is the room view (get a balcony room to open the doors and get a nice breeze off the lake). What really impressed us was the quality and care of the staff. We had experienced... More

We arrived at El Faro almost by chance and discovered this beatiful place by the lake Nahuel Huapi. The room we had (standard one) was very spacious and with the most amaizing view of the sunset by the lake and behind the mountains . A well equiped bathroom, good breakfast, very helpful staff, nice spa and free wi-fi made us... More

We booked here based on the reviews and were delighted by our experience at El Faro. As noted by others, the hotel is a 20-minute walk or short cab ride from downtown. Though that's sometimes a pain, the tradeoff is you get a fantastic view and serene setting. We were upgraded to a suite and it was lovely -- huge... More
