As many reviewers said, this hotel is located on a hill, away from the downtown area. It has good view of Lake Argentina. One can walk on the beach all the way to Laguna Nimez Reserve. From the beach you have access to a gate which brings you to the trail circling the laguna. To walk to the downtown it... More

Our room was nice, clean, comfortable and overlooking the lake however the hotel itself was nothing special. There were very few guests when we were there and also very few staff. We ate in one night but we were the only people there and we had to search for the waiter every time we wanted a drink! The hotel was... More

We stayed at Hosteria Las Dunas for 4 nights in Feb 2013 and had asked our tour operator, Imagine Latin America, to book us in there as we had read the Trip-advisor reviews about the fantastic location and good restaurant. We were not disappointed in the location - right on the shore of Lake Argentina with wonderful views towards snow... More

Many hotels in El Calafate are far from center. Hotel Las Dunas is far from center (30 min walk). All shuttle/transferts for the tours will arrange pick-up at the hotel Las Dunas. Despite its location near lake, there are no nice walking possibilities by the lake. Hotel Las Dunas has a free shuttle but very irregular.. Taxi from center is... More

Gorgeous views, rooms are a little dated and it is very far from town. It's a cute town, too.We ate there once and it was OK. Breakfast is nothing special. Not as helpful as other places we stayed in Argentina.

The room has beautiful lake Argentina view. The hotel was nice and cozy, clean and tidy room with comfortable bed. A bit far from the town but there was shuttle bus provided. The staffs were friendly and helpful.

I would recommend this hotel for couples or families, as it is quaint, quiet with beautiful lake views....not for a solo traveler, unless that's what you're looking for. Rooms were nice and clean for the value. The breakfast was great with a lot of variety. It is a bit far from town and other hotels if you need to meet... More

Las Dunas was an absolutely breathtakingly beautiful hotel located right on Lake Argentina. It clearly has the best view of any hotel in the area! All the rooms have an amazing view from the window and you can literally watch the sun set over the lake from your room. It's farther from town then some of the local hotels but... More

the location is lovely, situated right on Lago Argentino, with a comfortable, very attractive entryway and lounge with views of the lake. We agree with previous reviews of the staff Ignacio - friendly, patient,helpful in all ways. Jessica was the same, helping us with travel arrangements, phone calls,and taxis. MariaElena could have been friendlier. We unfortunately were placed in a... More

Spent a couple of nights here while visiting Patagonia to check out the Perito Moreno Glacier (you have to see the glacier, it is sooo worth it). While this hotel is located a little out of the main town (really it is just a main street) it is not inconvenient. You could walk to town easily and a the cab... More
