This is my second time in B.A. and at the Faena as I loved it so much last year. I stay 10 days over Christmas and N.Year and still loved it.
This is the only hotel in BA with decent pool and trendy atmosphere. As I complained before to arrive than the previous year I did not have an Executive room(but paid for it), they told me that you have some with shower and some with bath and shower...well honestly if you pay that amount of money over Christmas you do want the bigger room!
and they did...I had a much nicer and what looks like an Executive room.
Good point for them,
Not so good when this time I wanted to see tagain he Tango show and instead to wait last minute to book, I send an email 10 days before arriving.
Mistake!! when we arrive in the cabaret, we had the worst table in the room, near the stairs, no view and I refused to stay, as if you can afford to be a guest in the hotel for 10 days, I do think the concierge should give us a better table (as the previous year).
And they wanted to charge me when I checked out! I was fuming and also disappointed to don't see this fabulous show.
Even more disappointed that on New Years Eve they did not did the Tango, what was the best on the previous year...instead we had a common brazil group..great when you have the best Tango Show in your place...
Just for this two raisons I will not go back this year to the hotel.
Breakfast was stunning, evrything you wanted was there.
Pool was very busy and staff very cool, our favorite was Celina, she is just so professional and very nice, always smiling.
Hope the management realize that they have someone good there..
SPA is very good but overpricy, $55 around the pool for 10min reflexology!!($330 for 1 hour??)Even in Paris or London, I do not pay that price.
Concirege was good but not as nice that previous year, especially when come to restaurants, we had to find our own choice as I was not happy with their choice.
Overall, it is a perfect hotel if you are not paying full price, service could be better, but if you manage a good rate, well this is perfect.
