If you consider, if you should choose this hotel or another one, i can just say: Book it immediately! It may be an experience of a lifetime. All other hotels are in El Calafate and the town itself is quite touristy and not so interesting. The Eolo Lodge on the other hand is situated in the middle of nowhere, surrounded... More

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at the "lodge." The staff were unbelieveably friendly and accommodating (and unpretentious). We booked this through skyauction.com and probably never would have paid the normal asking price. . . but after staying there I think it would probably be worth every penny of full price if you're looking for a luxurious place...

We stayed at Eolo for 3 nights during a trip to Argentine and Chile and absolutely loved it. This is a lodge that is half way between the main town and the glacier attractions so its easy to get to the glaciers but not so easy to get to the town. This did not bother us one bit as you... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in a Corner Suite. We were not sure it would live up to expectations, but in 6 months of travelling, this turned out to be one of the absolute best properties we stayed at. Do not even consider staying anywhere else if you have more than a couple of days; we chose it over... More

Eolo is simply magical. From the minute you are met at the airport by a friendly smiling member of staff, you know it's going to be special. Then you drive up to the estancia in the most spectacular setting --a wild, beautiful, sweep of valley where eagles and condors (if you're lucky!) glide, and hares frolic. The hotel is designed...

My wife and I just got back from Eolo as part of a two week trip to Argentina and Uruguay. On the plane ride home, we were each trying to list our top five hotel experiences of all time and both of us included Eolo without hesitation (others in the group include One and Only Palmilla, Four Seasons Santa Barbara,...

The considerable expense of this stay did set very high expectations. The drammatic setting alone would have been sufficient to exceed them. Even the images on EOLO´s website cannot do justice to the place. Valentin and his crew could not have been friendlier and more accomodating. Indeed, a problem that we posed to the hotel during our stay was resolved... More

Staying at Eolo is like staying in the ultra-luxury home (as a pampered guest) of a great friend (with top-notch staff) rather then a hotel. The staff is accommodating and attentive but not obsequious; throughout a four night stay they struck the right balance of treating us as guests while behaving as peers who could also provide tips on the...

While on my amazing End of the World tour (thanks CAT travel!), I elected to treat myself to some luxury lodgings and the Eolo Lodge was the undoubted highlight of all of the luxury hotels I stayed in. The Eolo Lodge is situated in the middle of a huge expanse of privately owned property. My suite came with an inspiring... More

During a recent tour of Argentina, Eolo was by far the best hotel we stayed in, and probably one of the best we have ever visited. The views were exceptional, even better than the website suggested, and the service was amazing. During the FA Cup semi final, they turned the TV lounge into a football den, with food and drinks,...
