“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We just spent 5 nights at Catolina and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Juan Pedro absolutely made our trip with his insights, assistance and knowledge of the area. No request was too big and he was so quick to help (quick email to his BlackBerry and he would respond within minutes). The apartment was a good size, immaculate, great view and it was so nice to have breakfast delivered each morning (we would email Juan the night before with our preferred time).

While the weather in Bariloche did not cooperate, we were still able to explore the area and nearby towns. I would definitely recommend having a car while in this area.

Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend Catolina without hessitation.

Room Tip: Try to get a room wtih an unobstructed view of the lake.

We spent two nights in this beautiful property. The rooms are very well put together, clean and modern, with all the services one could require,. The view from all the rooms was like a Bariloche postcard. The personal service was excellent. The breakfast each morning was very good. And very importantly, the WiFi worked well.

We recently spent 5 nights at this wonderful apartment hotel. The amazing views and breakfast delivered to our room were just the beginning. What set this place apart from the rest was the extraordinary personal service provided by Juan, the hotel manager. From booking our hire car, to sitting down with maps making suggestions on things to do, to sorting out a flight cancellation (for us non spanish speaking Australians) until 1.00am nothing was too much trouble. We can't recommend this place too highly. Oh, and be sure to check out the million dollar view from the heated indoor/outdoor pool.

We recently spend 3 nights at the Catalonia Sur Aparts & Spa. Wow! What a wonderful place. Juan and Tania are so attentive and available. They make you feel like you have a home away from home.

We were there in the winter, so the warmth in the heated floors was incredible and so nice and cozy. The view of the lake is amazing. You will need to take a taxi or bus to get into the town, but it is worth it to stay in such a lovely, hospitable place.

It was also immaculately clean! Sparkling and beautiful. Really, really clean. It felt good to be there.

We enjoyed the pool. It was warm and relaxing to swim in after a busy cold day.

Wonderful breakfast is included -- you will have all that you need. They are so kind and generous.

We had no complaints. This is a first class operation. Well done!

Stayed there for 3 days with family (6 adults and 2 kids) and we had a great time. The views from the rooms are amazing; unobstructed view of the lake and the trees from the balcony (not to mention the small eagles that are constantly flying around).

The rooms are big, spacious and very clean; the breakfast is delicious. We had two rooms, one had a tub and the other a very modern shower (with several jets of water). The pool is very nice, the kids loved it; it's an indoor/outdoor pool so you use it regardless of the weather.

The attention from Tania and Juan is really good, they are always willing to help (e.g. book a taxi) and give advice if you need it. Tania even prepared some sandwiches for the kids when we left the hotel for our next destination.

We forgot some jewellery at the hotel (a wedding ring and a bracelet) and Juan sent it to us to our hotel in Buenos Aires. If we needed further proof that they really care about their guests, well, that was it!

The hotel is 4-5 kms from town, but it's a very easy trip, probably 5-10 mins by taxi (around 25 pesos). It's worth staying out-of-town, as you really feel in contact with the nature (the lake is 10 mins walking downhill).

In conclusion, we all had a great stay at the Catalonia Sur and we hope we can be back there one day!

We stayed as a family of four (2 kids aged 2 and 5). We got one of the 70 odd m2 apartments. Its about 7km out of Bariloche but after 4 weeks in BA we wanted the peace and quiet. Juan got quotes for car companies before we got there and we finalised it in day 2. The car even got delivered to our place. The apartments are perched high on a hill and the views at the front are to die for. Breakfast is great, plentiful and Tania homemade jam.... OMG!! Juan the manager who speak english alot alot better than my spanish is a great host and pointed out some great beaches to go to. Overall we had a great time and wished we could spend another week there. The cleaning of the apartment is daily and very thorough and its the best hot shower we have had in about 10 weeks of travelling.

Room Tip: The front overlooking the lake.

We have just visited catalonia sur in Barlioche for one night. The apartment with the lake view was stunning, all very new furniture and beds. The owner couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast was perfect, brought to the door at our preferred time. If you are visiting bariloche and want views, you can't beat it.
