4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2010

Coming from and departing to Mendoza, we stayed 2 nights, so we had a full day to visit Valle de la Luna, which is about an hour's drive from Valle Fértil. The hotel is located on top of a hill at the edge of the town, with wonderful views all around. At the bottom of the hill are the Cabanas Valle Fértil, under same management. The hotel guests can use the pool there, it is maybe 5 minutes to walk. No services whatsoever at the pool (you have to bring towels, food, drinks...).

Our room was basic, but OK, the aircondition worked fine and was not too noisy. The view from the room was very nice, towards the lake behind the hotel, but there was no balcony. We had to go outside for a sundowner (a nice glass of wine during sunset).

The restaurant was fine, we had good dinners there. However, we were not happy with the breakfast. They did not seem to fill-up anymore half an hour before breakfast time ended. A really lousy breakfast!

January/February is the rainy season there, but we were lucky, it only rained one night a little bit. Roads may be blocked by water or mud if it rains.

Ischigualasto/Valle de la Luna was absolutely spectacular. You can enter the park only in a convoy of cars, with a guide. The tour takes 3 hours, with several stops on the way.

All in all, well, since there is not too much choice in the area, it's probably still the best that's available in Valle Fértil. I would stay there again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2008

My family and I stayed here as part of our tour round San Juan. This used to be an Argentine Automobile Association motel, but it was sold to a private developer. The buildings are still the same: on top of a rocky outcrop, high above the town of Valle Fértil, with the rooms looking out on to the small lake created by a local dam. In the morning, when you wake up and look out, you can see the ducks just yards away, swimming in the lake. Because of its location on a hill, the hotel has several levels of buildings, connected by outdoor stairs. The main building is the highest one and contains the restaurant as well as two floors of rooms.
From the top you can see the town on one side and the two hotel buildings and the lake on the other side. Quite a view in the morning! It is difficult to choose which view you like best, so you might as well stay two nights.
The rooms are quite small but functional. The bathrooms are modern and adequate, and they even have hair dryers. The heating in winter is excellent.
We had dinner at the restaurant, which offers two set menus. The roast kid was very good, and the service was fast and professional. Breakfast was good, with standard fare (juice, breads, jams, cereals).
We walked the premises in the morning and discovered a path which led to the shore of the lake where you can get canoes and swim in the summer (although summer is the rainy season and is not recommended if you are planning to tour the Ischigualasto Park).
