This hotel is on the top of a hill a few blocks from the main road. It gives you an amazing view of town and Laguna Nimez. It's an extremely well maintained hotel, beautiful, natural, and a very tranquil spa-like environment. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast is very good. The only con... More

Upon arrival for a dream (and expensive) trip to Patagonia for my birthday, I arrived at this hotel, and on check-in they advised I would be staying somewhere else - an inferior hotel. However, Esplendor still charged my credit card for the full rate. When I enquired about why they chose my reservation, the response was that it was because... More

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 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.
