Stayed 8 nights at La Cascada with my wife and our young daughter, while skiing and traveling around Bariloche area. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay, despite some minor cons (see bellow).
The staff really made a difference, even before our arrival. Everyone has been very friendly during our stay, but Nicolas - one of the receptionists/ concierges - has excelled. He had arranged a very good rental car deal for us (including ski rack, snow tires and infant seat) weeks ahead of our trip and was always very helpful on booking and organizing restaurants/ tours throughout all our stay.
The location of La Cascada was perfect for us, on the shore of Nahuel Huapi lake, midway between the downtown area and Cerro Catedral. Moreover, many of the best restaurants in town (La Salamandra Pulperia, El Patacon, El Boliche de Alberto are some examples) are located on this part of Bustillo avenue.
Our room (a superior room with lake view) was spacious and confortable, with king size bed and marvellous views of the lake.
The hotel has a pleasant heated pool overlooking the lake, besides a surprisingly good gym and billard area. These seem to have recently been renovated.
Now the cons:
- Although the rooms are spacious and also seem to have passed through a recent renovation, the decor is quite simple (not exactly minimalist) and the bathrooms are dated (even though everything was working properly).
- The breakfast is only average, not really up to a 4-star category. Moreover, the dinner options were always very limited (the menu changes every 2-3 days).
We got promotional rate through Booking.com, so I found it a very good value.
Be sure to get a superior suite overviewing Nahuel Huapi lake.
