“Beautiful Boutique Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2008

We spent 5 nights between Chistmas and New Years. Very pretty place on the lake and off the main road. Quirky decor with midcentury modern together with dyed animal skins. Very nice large rooms. Hotel is about 10 km outside of town (a very good thing, Bariloche is noisy and loaded with tee shirt shops and English pubs). You really need a car to get around. Spent an evening at the Llao Llao, the big, fancy resort and was so happy to be staying at a small, low key boutique hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2007

Found this site accomodation on-line, and crossed my fingers it would be good. It is OUTSTANDING. We were greeted @ the airport by a driver and taken to the Peñon. Only 27 rooms. This is low season, so only $135 per night, for a large King bed room which includes breakfast, and lunch or dinner. Staff goes out of it's way to arrange tours for guests. We had a private Circuito Chico tour for only $4 more than a group tour from in town (Bariloche). This property is LARGE, and relaxing. Fishing is from the private dock on site. Peñon is the primary reason we will return for a 2nd visit to Argentina. Suggestion: rent a car. Peñon is out on the road to Llao Llao. A car will allow you freedom to go into Bariloche, to estancias, trekking, on your own.
Best rates are March and April

  • Liked — small, private, attentive service

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2007

Stayed here January 2007 and it spoiled an otherwise wonderful trip to Argentina. Do not believe any of the web-site or guide info that suggests this place provides "activities" of any sort included in the price. It provides none and seeks to charge for arranging any. You also need a car as it is 14km out of town on a very busy road. Staff very unhelpful (the only time I experienced this in Argentina). Not recommended.

  • Disliked — Accommodation is ok but hotel does not provide facilities which are advertised on website
  • Stayed January 2007, traveled solo
