Having read the previous reviews I had very high expectations and we were not disappointed.
Cabrera Gardens a beautiful ‘home from home’. Every detail, from the furnishings to the shower gel (a particular favourite of ours) has clearly been meticulously planned to provide guests with a 5* experience.
However it is the hospitality that really sets Cabrera Gardens apart. Robert is the perfect host, always on hand to offer suggestions on restaurants, recommendations for attractions in the city that might not normally be part of plan A and, in our case, quick to organize a replacement day out when something I had organized months in advance fell through at very short notice.
Breakfast is a particular delight, Roxanna offering a varied selection of breads, meats, eggs and fruit in a very relaxed environment – the breakfast rolls really are beyond words!!
Situated in Palermo Hollywood the location of this property is ideal, close enough to access points for all the main sites (taxi’s and the subway are really cheap) but far enough away from the tourist areas to make you feel like you’re experiencing the ‘real’ Buenos Aires.
We stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of our holiday and 1 further night before we flew back to the UK. Arriving from Mendoza, tried & hungry late on Friday evening, it was wonderful to be met by Robert and Roxanna as if we were old friends and in summary this gesture really summed up our entire stay – a warm & very friendly welcome accompanied by quality of accommodation that matches anything we’ve experienced before…….. including the Four Seasons!!!
We can’t wait to return to Cabrera Gardens - our home in BA.
