We stayed here two nights and wish we had stayed longer. Now this is not for everyone but if you like being outdoors, and in a great location with fantastic service then this is the place to be. The Hosteria is located on a sheep ranch and has only 7 rooms. The managers are beyond great, and you will enjoy... More

We stayed at Alta Vista for 3 days in late November and we were the only 2 guests mid week. The hotel is indeed "out of the way" but that is part of the beauty of the place. The horses were wonderful, the rides spectacular. The hiking was thoroughly enjoyable. Rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The meals were well... More

Located about 30-40 minutes outside of El Calafate, Alta Vista is indeed remote... if that is what you are looking for you will enjoy every minute of it. We spent four nights there and fully enjoyed the hiking and horse riding activities offered by the Hosteria... we never ran out of things to do and our only regret was that... More

My husband stayed here at the end of November. Unfortunately we were booked in at the full board rate, to include activities , which was expensive, and we actually had little time to do them as we arrived in the evening and left in the morning to look at the glacier. It was not good value for money, the food... More

Alta Vista is part of a working farm and feels more like someones home than a hotel and is in the midlle of nowhere. This is either a big plus or a big minus and for me the single most important factor to consider when choosing this hotel. Good points - Isloated - 30km closer to the Moreno Glacier than... More

We really enjoyed staying here. The room was clean and comfortable, with all the amenities you would expect at a more expensive B&B. Also no Tv, no phone, no clock = perfect! The reception/living room has a cosy bar and space to read. the dining room serves a set meal which was always very tasty, and they accomodated the fact... More

We spent 2 nights here while climbing the Perito Moreno glacier. This is truly a special facility, part of a large working ranch set aside for visitors. The staff was outstanding as was the food and service. The rooms are simply decorated but most comfortable and clean. The reception area and grounds are delightful. There are opportunities for horse rides... More
