My daughter and I are staying here right now, as we speak. It's our first night of 3, and I'm a little afraid of nights 2 and 3. The room is nice enough - large, comfortable...but the air conditioning is central, meaning no individual control in the room, and it's HOT in here. I've called twice and they said they'd "check into it" but it's still hot. If my daughter wasn't already asleep I'd ask to change rooms. The staff is VERY nice, but if the room is not comfortable, no amount of kindness can help.
The wifi here is also very slow. Can't even complete a FaceTime call to my wife (audio, not video - audio only doesn't use up much bandwidth but the wifi is still too slow to even do that) so my daughter is not able to speak to her mother who's in Brazil on business :(
Next, the shower - it has only about half the opening covered. There is a half size swinging door there that covers it but leaves the other half open, so water sprays into the bathroom regardless of how you position the shower head.
I'm sure this is normal for Argentina, but I wish they had bath tubs and washcloths (typical USA type hotels do) for bathing small children. My daughter is only 4 and not really used to taking a shower, but we made it work.
The location is great - right across the street from the beach (be careful - I saw other reviews that said it was "on" the beach, but to me that means you can leave the hotel and walk to sand without crossing a street which is not the case here). Lots of restaurants and shops nearby and it seems safe enough.
The beach is not quite what I'd call clean - lots of cigarette butts, bottle caps, and other misc junk in the sand, but my daughter loved it and she had fun so I guess that's what counts.
Tomorrow I plan to speak to the staff about the air con issue and get a different room. As I write this I'm sprawled out on top of my covers and still roasting hot. My daughter, who normally sleeps in pajamas, complained it was too hot and is only in her underwear now. Hopefully I can fall asleep soon.
