Wonderful views over the lake. A modern and spacious hotel with nice rooms and spa. A great place to relax. Free shuttle bus into Calafate town center which was really good. The restaurant at the hotel was not very cosy, but the food was good. You also got a complimentary glass of champagne when you arrived. The breakfast was wonderful... More

Spacious luxury rooms, but Not a 5 star hotel for sure. the walls are very thing made of plywood not like most hotels we stay in. Not a bad hotel for someone to stay 1 night but no more then that but other then that the hotel look new and was very clean, we cannot say anything bad about it.... More

Not a 5 star hotel for sure. Far for town, ok if you take the bus or taxi, not for walk. Bus starts to run 11am. Not very punctual but convenient. The driver and the door man (same person) is very very nice, he should be at the front desk. Front desk staff should smile a little more, and greet... More

Spacious luxury rooms, but if you look closer you will find some defects. For example, one window could not be closed completely. The view on the laguna is great. Breakfast was good. (buffet style) One evening we ate at the restaurant, it was ok, but you can find better in town. The shuttle bus to the town should drive more... More

We stayed in Xelena Suites for one day and one night. The location is marvelous. The room was ok, although our lake-view room hardly had a view on the lake, the spa very nice but could use some updating. Point of improvement: the breakfast should be included in the price considering what we payed. The shuttle bus should also run... More

The name is a misleader. It was neither deluxe nor suites. It is far from town, but they have a shuttle bus every hour. The room was spacious, but shabby with worn out upholstery and old floor carpeting. When I arrived there was hair in the sink. The structure from the inside is communist-like and impersonal. Breakfast is in a... More

This luxury hotel is on the edge of town, towards the glaciers with stunning views of the bay. There is a free shuttle bus into Calafate which runs every hour, however it only takes about 20 minutes to walk. The best thing about this hotel is the ultra-efficient, professional reception team. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who... More

Upgraded to here and from what friends who stayed in the town told us we were glad we did. The free shuttle service makes this edge of town location no problem. Rooms nice but see our room tip. Breakfast good but some of the staff need to smile!!! Restaurant very good and the service was excellent and with a smile!!... More

This is not a 4 or 5 star hotel. If you're from the states, it's equivalent to a courtyard or typical 3 star chain with nothing special. We paid over $300 a night and they are really disorganized at the front desk. The room had dirty pillows, smelled and had human hair on pillows, probably from past guest. Internet is... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here whilst enjoying the popular local glacier attractions. Very good ambience and service in the bar and breakfast restaurant despite being the very start of the season. We chose to eat in town in the evenings, mainly to experience different cuisine but the hotel restaurant did look inviting. The Xelena is a little... More
