We had high expectations before we got there. They were exceeded. My wife and I were there with our 2.5 year old toddler. Since everyone at the hotel arrived and were leaving on pretty much the same days, it ended up being a community that was experiencing the area together. All the guests were warm and happy towards our son,... More

An amazing and very relaxing hotel in an awesome place. Everything about the hotel is fantastic, the food all freshly prepared is great and the staff are so friendly nothing is a problem for any of them. My room had the most amazing views straight across Lake Pehoe to the snow capped mountain peaks. Great base to either kick back... More

Salta Chico is beyond ones wildest dreams. The reason I gave it four stars was,the wifi is very iffy and the guides, although very enthusiastic, are college students who are given a couple of months training, far from experts in their fields We have a beautiful room overlooking the massif, not that there is a bad view. The food was... More

We stayed for 4 nights in this wonderful hotel and it is one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. Prior to “Explora” we had been in a cruise from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas. The Explora team picked us up in the port and drove us (about 4 hours) to the hotel. Once there, we were amazed by... More

Stayed here in late December for our honeymoon. First off - the hotel is in the best possible location, you can see the mountains and late right from your room! It's the only 5-star hotel located in the park. From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the professionalism of the staff. We were greeted by at least... More

A new experience for us in eco-tourism. Explora is about letting go of everyday stresses, getting in touch with the environment and experiencing nature. The host of physical activities within the dramatic Torres del Paine park coupled with the volatile and extreme Patagonian weather provided an amazing holiday experience. The hotel is luxurious and well run, the cuisine good, the... More

(See photo.) When you are not on one of the 40 or so activities offered by the hotel, you will be gazing at the view. Rooms There... More

Stayed 4 nights at the beginning of November 2014 as part of a hiking group. We came prepared to hike all day every day in all kinds of weather and we were not disappointed with either the hiking trips or the hotel. It was a complete contrast to the Singular hotel (outside the park) that we had just spent 3... More
