On my reservation I specified and called out that we would be arriving on the daily flight from Buenos Aires into Calafate at 1:30AM and that... More

This hotel is in a beautiful spot. Our room had a great view of the lake and was decorated with thoughtful touches. Breakfast is typical Argentinian, ie very sweet with plenty of jams and dulce de leche. There was also ham and cheese and cornflakes. The wifi is decent. There is a lovely conservatory area where you can sit in... More

As other reviewers indicated this place is very far from town, so you're very limited in shopping and dining options. It is close to the lake and is in a peaceful and serene location. So if you have a car, it's ok, otherwise it's a hike to and from town. The rooms are larger than the ones closer to town,... More

Greeted by a most warm welcome, we had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Obtaining a snack upon late night arrival was no problem at all and we were well taken care of. All our questions were immediately answered and rental car, restaurant reservations (as probably other things) were happily done by the reception. Run and decorated with love... More

Firstly I would like to say that we booked this Hotel because of the lovely reviews I read. Unfortunately the rooms do not look like anything in their website and also most of the comments. The Hotel did not offer free shuttle service but service against payment. There was no desk with electrical outlet as stated in their website and... More

We really regret that your stay wasn’t good, The price that you paid was for an standard room, and we correspondingly assign, and the next day we gave you an upgrade of a superior room (courtesy only) not because you was upset, actually you didn’t pay the difference. Unlike the rest of people who come to Calafate, and previously reserve... More

Although a little far from town (30 min), that is the reason to be there. During tourist season city streets can be busy late into the night. This place is peaceful. The scenery is beautiful. The mountains that feed Perito Moreno are visible. Lake Nimez, bird preserve, seen out the window. The staff is so friendly and helpful you feel... More

Although it is a little far away from the town, it has a great view, and part of its charm is the quiet enviroment surround it. Friendly staff, good food and nice and clean rooms. They help you hiring the excursions, advicing about what is the best to do while you're staying.
