We book trough a travel agency in buenos aires, and it was expensive. When we show off at the aparts we found out that prices where way cheaper. I recomend to book in advance your self. Service is excellent, they take breskfast to your beautiful wooden cabin. The place and the surrounding is awesome, and is walking distance to downtown... More

Stayed a couple of nights while in El Calafate. Not having a car, it was nice to be a half block off the main road through town. Good restaurants as well as the town's grocery store were a few minutes walk nearby. The apartments are small efficiencies and ours had a living area with a kitchenette, a bedroom and bathroom....

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and can highly recommend Santa Monica Apartments. In fact, look no further because SM is spotlessly clean, around the corner from the main street of El Calafate and very quiet. The breakfasts are also better than most in Argentina and the cabins have a little kitchenette which was very helpful in our... More

My wife spent two nights at the Santa Monica Aparts in March 2015. The grounds are beautiful, but the apartment made me feel claustrophobic. Each of the log cabins shown in the pictures have two small one-bedroom apartments. Each apartment has a small living room, a small kitchenette, a small bedroom, and a very small bathroom. Every room is stuffed... More

Great location, comfortable bed, good bathroom and a nice separate living room with kitchenette. The modest breakfast is delivered at the time of your choice. What else do you need? The property is yards away from the main drag so very close to all amenities. It is quiet and the gardens are well kept The two girls on reception are... More

Reminded me of small cabins in Northern Minnesota were I live. Well appointed, clean & comfy. Pros: The staff was the best part, very knowledgable and friendly. Also, the location to the Main Street, restaurants, tour companies & shops was excellent. Cons: No view of the beautiful lake and the traffic noise. We had trouble sleeping with all the loud...

We really enjoyed our stay at Santa Monica, helpful staff, nicely furnished and comfortable apartment, great location. We would thoroughly recommend for anyone wanting a bit more space than a hotel room.

We were so pleased with our stay here. The staff were really helpful and welcoming & the chalets/apartments are very clean and spacious with a lovely living room area. The apartment was very clean and the kitchenette is well equipped to enable you to stay in and cook which we did one night. The breakfasts are great (especially the dulce... More

We stayed at Santa Monica Aparts this past November. We had an amazing stay for a number of reasons. First, the staff (Jorgelina, Natalia and Florencia) were incredibly helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about various options for trips, tours, dining etc.. You can't beat the location either - it's situated right off (I'm talking a few feet) from Libertador, the main... More

Sadly we only spent 1 night here before flying back to BA - we would have happily stayed on for a week. The cabins are so private and quite; we had the best night sleep so far in Argentina. It is really quite a romantic setting. The staff was very professional and gave us spot on restaurant recommendations. If we... More
