What a surprise - we found this place just "by accident" and it's far the best option in the whole area. Barreal is not really on everyones schedule, but thanks to this hotel it is definitly worth the detour, if you are one your way south to Mendoza (... via Uspallata, recommendable road).
This small boutique style hotel has just 8 rooms, all well equipped with great views to the Andes. Nice bathrooms with sep. shower and bathtub, a/c, a small private patio with deckchairs, ....
A great plus is the owner family - unique hospitality, love for details, delicious food (breakfast and dinner!!). The wonderful garden and the well decorated main building, the patio and the terrace offer a very relaxing atmosphere. This place is so quiet, a retrat for your soul!
Also, there is a new pool with nice views, plenty of sun loungers, etc.
Massages are available on request.
If you like, activity programms will be organised (like horseback riding to the Andes, ...).
All in all this hotel gives you the feeling, that you are invited in a friends home. Thanks Alejandro and his family. I hope to retur asap.
