We stayed four nights at this great hotel. It has a lot of character with its thick walls, no television in our room, very privately tucked in the countryside, so there is no traffic noise. The desk staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants in El Calafate and we enjoyed the services of the waiting staff in the bar area.... More

The sheep are fantastic, you can see them every morning and you can attend a tour about wool production. The dogs are charismatic. The treatment is very personal, the hotel seems timeless, very inspiring of the Patagonian style. As mentioned, there is no tV or minibar in the rooms, but there is a cartoon be Quino in every door.

The setting is very quiet (with the exception of local birds awakening you at a time to get up), located a couple of blocks from the road leading into El Calafate. The center of town is approx a 15-20 minute walk where you will find an inviting number of restaurants and shops. The restaurant at Kau Yatun is very good... More

My son and I spent two nights at the Kau Yatun Hotel and Estancia in December 2014. We loved the place! It is only about a 15-minute walk from the heart of El Calafate, but it leaves the guest with a feel of being located far out in the wilds of Patagonia. Rooms are spacious and well-equipped.

This hotel is far from the town of El Calafate. But it makes up for this by its setting. It is really an estancia with plenty of space in the rooms and around the property.

We received a welcome drink, some flowers and a room upgrade. Nice, large rooms. This hotel and its grounds used to be a ranch. However, it takes an hour on foot to and from town. Especially at night, the hotel might be hard to find. The atmosphere and service were very good.

We really did not know what to expect upon our arrival at Kau Yatun in El Calafate since the room was not our priority as we had no intentions of spending much time in our room due to all of the exciting activities we had planned. But upon check-in we were very impressed with how friendly the front desk staff... More
