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. For a hotel with spa, robes and slippers are not in the rooms. The heat is... More

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. The rooms and public spaces were spacious and well-decorated, if a bit dim, but the beds were comfortable and it was hard to argue with the views. Some of the hotels in El Calafate are actually located pretty far from the downtown area, we learned,... More

We left the hotel with very mixed experiences. The design concepts are excellent, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the lake views are lovely. The lobby and other public areas are also attractive and welcoming. The walk to the main street of El Calafate is not far, although it's not via the most scenic parts of town. It would... More

We spent 5 days there in February. We loved it! Yes, as was mentioned in some reviews, the hotel is on the hill, may be 8-10 minutes walk to the city center. But not too far!!! And you get beautiful view from the hotel. Stuff was excellent! Not all of them spoke English, but they were friendly and very helpful.... More
