We had an amazing 2 night stay at Esplendor. The staff was very friendly and helpful with our requests. Loved the heated pool after a whole day of hiking at El Calafate, we booked a massage at their spa which was great as well and very affordable (around $40 each). The town offers a lot of great options to eat... More

The Esplendor in El Calafate is a luxureous hotel. It is located out of the main street of town, about 15 minutes walking up on a small hill. It's main point of attractiveness is its spa, with indoor heated pool in which you can relax after a cold day at Perito Moreno. Things that the hotel can improve on: English... More

hotel lobby sets the place up, its a bit different. staff were great, although bar/restaurant staff a little run of there feet. the 10 minutes it takes to walk to many restaurants, is a welcome stretch after sitting in a tour bus, and especially after the huge meals offered in town. would stay again

Fantastic hotel in El Calafate! We stayed here twice during our trip in Patagonia. I liked the modern design, but most of all the friendly staff, they really made the difference! Any question we had, they made it happen. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our stay here. The grim, forbidding exterior high on a hill is deceptive, as inside is clean, warm comfortable and spacious. Room a bit gloomy, not enormous but comfortable bed and bedding. Breakfast adequate but seem short staffed in restaurant, so slow to renew when items run out. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Plenty of hot water. Walk... More

Very good service by the staff at the reception, responsive and knowledgable. We got a great room with a great view. It was very tastefully done up and felt like home. The hotel looks very ordinary from the outside, but very cool and different from the inside. The architecture is not the best, but something that differentiates it from some... More

On the upside the rooms very cool and designed like a hunter's cabin with deer horns all over. Rooms are also very spacious and clean. The hotel also has a bar that serves dinner which is great since the hotel is 15 minutes from the city. The staff is english speaking and are willing to help. On the downside, they... More

The decoration of the hotel is very nice, but the customer care is bad, they never answer calls, there´s no single view of the city in regular rooms they only see the neighboring land with dust, cable TV has only Argentine and children's channels.

Spent a couple of days in El Calafate at the Esplendor & I was quite impressed. It's a big, stylish place but unlike chain hotels, the design of the rooms & public areas is very tasteful & with a touch of Patagonia, and the staff are friendly & helpful. It's fairly central; about 10 mins' walk to the main street... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Esplendor for two nights in May 2014.
