Very nice located Hotel in the Patagonian countryside. Beautiful view! Comfortable rooms, good food, friendly service! Quiet and relaxing atmosphere! BUT: Our last dinner and evening was totally spoilt by a very NOISY American Travel Group of about 25 persons! The Noise level in the dining room was by far not in line with the level of the hotel!

The staff is super friendly, help ever which way they can in getting organised for a few nice days in the land of Petito Moreno. The views in all 4 directions are breathtaking. On all sides there are beautiful wide lounges to take the views in! Nice spacious room with of course a great view too! It is full board,... More

I have been visiting Eolo for a few years now, and this review was long overdue. The location of this property is just sublime. Every window offers a different view, focusing on the rugged beauty of the patagonian steppe. Both public areas & rooms are ample, with a relaxed atmosphere. The decor is sober, mimicking the austere palette of the... More

Eolo Lodge Relais & Châteaux opened its doors in the month of December 2004. It was conceived to be a special nature-oriented lodge with high level of service and accommodations. Set within a 3,000 hectare property, its sceneries are breath-taking and the choices of outdoor activities are ever-so varied and appealing. Location: Calafate, Santa Cruz Province, on the eastern slope... More

Eolo is a Relais & Chateau property and lives up to its pedigree. The location is on a serene hill outside the city of El Calafate in Patagonia. The spacious rooms are all beautiful...each has a view or mountains or Lago Argentina. The service at the hotel is wonderful and friendly and the restaurant is great. This property is all... More

My husband and I stayed in Eolo for 3 nights and we're sorry to leave. The staff were delightful and could not have been more friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful from breakfast, to lunch to dinner and hey the afternoon tea! Amazing! The hotel is very remote but the staff drove us to the main road from where... More

This place has many charms but there were several issues. The rooms got pretty hot, in the west facing section and there was no way to make it cooler. The windows did open but there were no screens and it rapidly became pretty buggy. The food, this is a relais chateaux hotel, was ok one night and very good the... More

I was planning to book myself to Hosteria Los Nostros, more famous hotel, but it was closed for renovation. EOLO was my second choice, but I am lucky that I was "forced" to go there. It simply represent everything which is grand about Patagonia: enormous space, hospitality, lack of crowds of people. In my opinion - it is a must... More

We had hesitated somewhat before taking the plunge and booking three nights here simply because the prices are very high but in the end it was well worth it. The purpose-built hotel sits on a hill and affords 360° breathtaking views - ranging from the milky blue glacial waters of Lake Argentinia to the wide steppes stretching to the Chilean... More

EOLO is luxurious, not only in rooms and food, but its remote location on the steppes outside El Calafate. It looks out over vast expanse of plain and mountain - with birds, hares, cattle, horses. Walk to the wetland, through scrub, to see flamingos and other bird life. Take a horse ride on the plains. Luxuriate in the sauna or... More
