“Location is the best your going to get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

But.

Menu was so limited, not one vegtable in sight. Breakfast really basic. Orange Squash for breakfast...The waiter bless him was lovely. Rooms ok, 100USD not sure the pool is ok, but very small..

Found the staff to be generally very helpful. yes its 54 Kms to the Park but thats the closest your going to get and the scenery is amazing.

Be Warned there is nothing to eat or see or Villa Union.

Room Tip: try the little section off the hotel for no noise

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2011

Small wonderful hotel on the south side of the rather uninteresting town Villa Union - and a good stepping-stone to the wonderful Talampaya National Park (did the bike tour there, faboluos value at 50 pesos with guide for three hours)
hotel is traditionally built in adobe style. Rooms are rather simple and small but there are lots of common areas to hang out in, in the big lounge and in the lofty inner courtyards.
Great views towards the mountains in the west.
I felt very much at home and ended up staying an extra night.
Small minuses: breakfast could be more varied, dinner selection is somewhat limited and the pool area is a bit uncharming.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2010

This modern Hotel in an Pueblo style architecture is located in Villa Union, Rioja and probably the closed accomodation to the Tempalaya National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site). This park (very worthwhile visiting) is still 60 km away but roads are paved and easy to manage. Restaurant privides ok dinner but rather poor breakfast, in particular for a diabetic.
