We stayed for one night at Santa Ana. We got a very nice wood cabin, two rooms, kitchen and a living room. The place was super clean, great WI-FI (free...), walking distance to the main street. The hosts spoke very good english so we could get great recommendations. We enjoyed very much the place, so i'm sure you'll enjoy it... More

El Calafate is the transportation hub for this region of Patagonia, so it niceto find an accommodation choice that fits those needs. The airport is a few kilometers out of town, and we found it really convenient to have a place right in town. We could walk to all of the restaurants, shops, bars, and ( really importantly) a laundromat!... More

We have just returned from 2 week trip to Argentina. We spent 4 nights in Calafate at Santa Monica Aparts. There are so many outdoor activities that we were not in our cabins very much. We had a 2 bedroom cabin & I must say this was the cleanest & well run hotel & very spacious. It is also in... More

Honestly, we were disappointed by this hotel because we had been expecting a quaint "boutique" hotel but it was more rustic and run-down than we expected. We had seen in the photos that it might be like staying at Grandma's house - which would have been ok - but everything felt so threadbare and dusty that it was hard to... More

My husband, daughter (11) and I stayed here two nights. The two bedroom cabin was great. Plenty of room for the three of us and our luggage. The kitchen was superbly equipped for making coffee/tea, lunches, etc. Breakfast was brought at the time requested, and while limited was still fresh and plentiful. Bathroom was large and amenities were provided. The... More

A lot of praise here for this boutique hotel and it merits it all or even more. This is a beautiful place. Some cute tidy and absolutely clean cottages in a tranquil and well-kept garden.

We spent a couple of nights at the Santa Monica apartments and really enjoyed it. While not fancy, the apartments are in the great downtown location, are super-clean, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. Best of all, the staff is fantastic.

We stayed at Santa Monica Apartments for just one night, but found the log cabins very nice and comfortable. The people at the desk were also very helpful arrangibg excursions and booking restaurants. Breakfast was a bit less than we expected, but it was still quite good.
