One of the most incredible places we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. We were welcomed by the staff- which catered to all of our needs with the utmost professionalism we have experienced. Veronica is amazing as was Andres who took me riding and allowed for me to enjoy the horses without feeling as though I were on a... More

Ideally located only 120 km from Buenos Aires and close to San Antonio de Areco in the heart of the Pampa, one of the oldest estancias in Argentina, recently renovated with great care as a boutique hotel, successfully combines luxurious comfort and colonial elegance. The feeling of being welcomed into a private home, into a property steeped in history and... More

La Bamba was the perfect end to a memorable holiday in Brazil and Argentina organized and planned by Journey Latin America. From the moment we arrived, greeted by a gaucho on horseback and the Argentinian equivalent of Downton Abbey, we felt very privileged to have this experience. Veronica ensured that everything was perfect, from our beautiful room to the delicious... More

Great resort. Excellent food. Staff very attentive and felt very looked after. Loved the riding and they catered for all levels and we're good at responding to individual requests to go out on faster rides. Great experience and a nice way to end our trip

Booked for us by our travel agents Imagine Latin America, the Estancia at La Bamba is just an hour or two from Buenos Aires, but a million miles away in other respects. The accommodation and communal areas are all very tastefully done and perfectly appointed. The staff were all so polite and attentive (without being remotely overbearing), the setting is... More

Veronica organises a place which feels like an exclusive private home rather than a hotel.It ouses class from the furniture and decor to the communal dining table.Beware the huge lunch you will need a siesta after.Huge pool,drinks offered when you need and a great chef.Would love to come back and see a polo match on one of the two pitches...

Easily the highlight of a recent trip to South America. From the line-up of all the staff upon arrival, to the wonderfully decorated buildings and rooms, it doesn’t take long to understand this is a high-end place and where guests are pampered. Meals and drinks are communal. Maybe not to everyone’s taste, but from my experience this made it all... More

A brilliantly run estancia close to Buenos Aries with everything a guest could possibly want. Beautiful interior design, acres of outside space, masses of food and wine a pretty decent sized pool, handsome gauchos , a great team of workers all organised by Veronica. Could have stayed much longer.

This is one of the most beautiful places we have been. The setting, the accommodations, the buildings, the decor, the pool, etc are all stunning. When one arrives, a gaucho greats you. The food is wonderful, especially the grilled lunch. We can't wait to go back

Our first experience of an estancia was delightful. The staff and gauchos are very friendly and can't do enough for you. The setting is peaceful and the pool delightful. The small touches really show and are appreciated. The horses were so well behaved and groomed. The polo pony stables are immaculate. Free horse shows every day, home baked empanadas brought...
