Unfortunately, we were booked into this hotel for one night only, en route to the Torres del Paines National Park. Our group would have liked to have stayed longer. The hotel is designed as an eco-friendly development and is a rather unusual combination of natural materials. It looks rather plain from the exterior, but internally it has a unique character. The views over the Strait of Magellan are fantastic and it is situated within a 15 minutes level walk from the town of Puerto Natales. The rooms are of good size and well appointed, once again in a unique style. The decor may not be to everyone's taste. We stayed in for dinner and the food was excellent and well priced. We had the set menu, with two bottles of wine between 5. The breakfast was buffet style and once again the food was excellent.
The only criticism I would have is that from the reception there is a fairly steep declining passage to the bedrooms and steps at the bottom. Elderly or infirm guests may need some assistance. The staff were excellent and friendly and I am sure assistance would not be a problem. However, this was a minor inconvenience and did not detract from our 5 star rating.
