As many reviewers said, this hotel is located on a hill, away from the downtown area. It has good view of Lake Argentina. One can walk on the beach all the way to Laguna Nimez Reserve. From the beach you have access to a gate which brings you to the trail circling the laguna. To walk to the downtown it is faster taking the paved road, about 30 min walk. When we were there, hotel shuttle would take you to downtown but not bring you back. Your have to either walk back or take a taxi.
When we checked in, a lady in the front desk (Fabriana) was very helpful, extremely friendly and enthusiastic. She served us tea and helped with luggage, really made us felt welcome. I was going to give this hotel a three-star, but bump it to 4-star just because of her.
Many of the rooms have nice lake view but needs update in many places. For example, the hardware of several windows were not operating properly. Once it was opened, it was difficult to close it. Some of the shelves were also loose, not properly attached to the wall.
We had dinner in the hotel twice. We felt the food was reasonable. They only had one waiter/waitress so sometimes it takes a while to find him/her.
