The hotel is clean and located in a nice hill that enables the view of amazing sunrises, sunsets and beautiful snowy mountains. Nicolas in the front desk gives a special value to our visit since he is very kind. The food is awful and the price don't honor what you eat. Go always to eat in the down town.

This was a beautiful hotel, decorated in true Argentinian style. We had a great dinner here on one of the nights of our stay. It had a great vista at the outskirts of El Calafate, and had a free transfer to town, which was handy as taxis are quite expensive in this town. There are 2 beautiful swimming pools, and... More

One of the best hotels in the area, loved the ambiance, very good breakfast buffet. Hotel shuttle will take you downtown since is a bit out of the way. Rooms are very spacious and staff is very helpful. Would love to go back.

We had the good fortune to have wonderful weather and a room with a stunning view. The room was quite spacious and fine for our needs. The bus to the town was efficient and we ate quite well in the restaurant. Breakfast was fine, but far from the best we had in our three week stay in Argentina. The spa,... More

The hotel itself is pretty nice. The lobby is very nice with wood and a home hearth type fireplace and nice big leather couches. The restaurant had the best food we ate in two trips to El Calafate. The hotel rooms were like a nice Motel 6 - but they had great showers. Great view. Fun little pool. Good shuttle... More
