“An impressively run place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We had a wonderful experience here. The hotel was very clean, with pleasing neutral decor, all amenities that you can want (spa, elaborate breakfasts which made us skip lunches altogether, bar, pool, great views of the surrounding countryside from the lobby and from several of the rooms) but what was most memorable for us were the front desk staff who went completely out of their way and took care of every last detail for us, from rescuing us from not having enough pesos for our cab ride from the airport, to organizing an automatic rental car for us (there were no automatics available at the airport but Pablo was able to find us one!), horse back riding, paragliding, and even dinners at restaurants that would appeal to our tastes. They never gave us vague responses but made sure that we had little to do besides show up! Thanks especially to Pablo, Damian, and the bartender (I've forgotten the name!)!

We stayed one night on our way out of Bariloche and wish we had stayed here longer. It is a beautiful hotel with exceptionally comfortable rooms. It sits on a slight hill, across the street from the lake. Breakfast options are quite good. The hotel is on the edge of Bariloche.

This hotel met all of our expectations. My wife and I stayed in one of the cabanas separated from the main hotel structure. The view was awesome, the yard area was beautiful and the service was top notch. The food was comparable to the good restaurants in the region. The prices were reasonable and overall our impression was very, very good. We went to Puerto Varas in Chile after a few days in Bariloche and the hotel there paled in comparison, even though it was one of the top ranked in that city.

Our tour group stayed 3 nights at Villa Huinid, and we had a king lake-view room. The appointments were very nice, everything about the room was good -- fridge, double sinks in the bathroom, Jacuzzi tub (which we didn't use). There were only 2 english tv channels, but that was okay. The breakfast included with the room was the best on the trip so far -- good fresh fruit, but limited hot selections. We had dinner one night there, and split a salad and steak -- plenty for 2 people. People were friendly and helpful and quite competent in English (unlike my spanish). The only disadvantage is that the hotel is about 1.5 miles from the downtown -- about a $6 cab ride or 30+ minute walk on a very busy road.

Room Tip: There is no a/c. On the hot days we were there, it seemed like the best breeze came from the back, w...

We stayed in Cabana 721 for 2 to 4 people for 6 nights from the 28th of December to the 3rd of January.. It had a comfortable king sized bed in the upstairs bedroom, and a separate toilet on the stairs. Our two sons aged 14 and 18 years slept on the comfortable sofa beds. The kitchen had all we needed to cook with, including a stove. There was cable TV and WiFi. The views from the living room and bedroom were magnificent. There is a private deck with BBQ facility as part of the cabana and room for a car to be parked outside. Although the cabana is closest to the road, the noise did not disturb us and we all slept well.

This cabana met all our needs and the staff were helpful too. We enjoyed the pool, my husband had an excellent shiatsu massage for his birthday and one son used the gym. The food in the restaurant was good and not over-priced. We caught taxis to town at a cost of about $30 pesos per trip, but we also walked it on a few occasions. It is likely you can catch bus 20 outside the hotel if you want to reduce your costs, as we saw people picking up the bus going the other way to the chico circuit.

We liked this hotel and would definitely recommend it. To reduce the cost definitely bring $US dollars and change them into pesos as our bill was presented in pesos and you can make some savings this way.

Room Tip: Cabana 721 is close to the road, but good value for 4 people. The views are excellent. We didn't...

We were fortunate enough to receive an upgrade from the lodge to a room in the main hotel. The service was great and the front desk very professional. The rooms were very big and well decorated. The views from this hotel re spectacular. The breakfast was the best we had in Argentina as it was a full American style buffet.

The hotel is 2.5km from town which is fine if you are not afraid of the walk or know how to use the public bus service.

We spent four nights here. There was nothing outstanding about the hotel, but it was a comfortable place to stay in Bariloche. We especially like the sauna and spa, and had massages and facials at the latter. We arrived late due to a flight delay, and instead of charging us, as many hotels have, they allowed us to use the room charge for meals and spa services.

They helped us get a reservation for Christmas (thanks, Pablo), not an easy task, but they did not follow through on a reservation request for Butterfly, despite numerous requests, so the front desk response was spotty.

It's a 20 minute walk into tone on dusty paths, so it may not be convenient for all travelers. They don't have a shuttle, so you are on your own. However, it is close to a bus stop, so you can take the bus to town or to Cathedral for hiking.

The breakfasts were okay, with the standard scrambled eggs, fruits, meats and cheeses offered.

Room Tip: There is quite a price difference between garden and lake view rooms. We had a garden view room, wh...
