My husband and I just came back from El Calafate after staying at Terrazas del Calafate for two nights and three days. We both wanted to write that the hotel staff is AMAZING!
Even before we arrived, I was emailing about questions regarding certain tours and things to do in El Calafate and they responded within hours. ( very prompt)
When we arrived at the hotel, we decided to book the Perrito Moreno Ice hiking tour last minutely. Federic, the hotel staff was patient enough to call the tour operater three times to get us a spot! He was VERY helpful with all the activities information in El Calafate.
The breakfast was pretty good with home made pasteries ( at least 5 different types), cereal, orange juice, ham, cheeses, fruit salad and coffee/tea.
Our rooms were REALLY clean and simple. We had a gorgeous view of the lake and saw flamingos from our windows. The hotel is very cozy and the staff very kind.
There is on-site dining at the hotel, which was pretty good and not too expensive. ( $40 ARD for pasta/ravioli).
The only con is that it is about a 20-30 min walk ( depending how how fast you walk) to the center of town ( Ave. De Librador?). However, my husband enjoyed the extra exercise and you can always grab a cab if you need to for a small price. Also, we liked the fact that it was away from the center of town because it was so peaceful at night.
Overall, this was a fantastic stay and if we came back, we would stay here again!
