“A Wonderful Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Terrazas del Calafate Hotel gave us one of the best hotel experiences ever. Juan, at the front desk, was incredibly friendly and helpful. The restaurant staff was also warm and friendly. The food was outstanding. The hotel is a bit far from town but the view was worth it. Overlooking the lake we saw flamingos and icebergs while sipping a cold beer in the lobby.

On the positive, the hotel is very comfortable and clean with the best view of the lake. Stay here if it's not important to be near town. Town is 20 minutes walk away or a short cab ride. Staff is great and my bed was firm and room was a great size. Thanks:)

All staff including the restaurant one went way beyond their duty, so nice and helpful. The location was perfect for us, best view of the lagos in town and only few minutes walk or cab from town if you need to go there. The restaurant within the hotel made some very good meals and did gluten free food for my wife both at breakfast and supper...was the best gluten free bread she had for months! Rooms are super clean but a bit basic.

The hotel is not near to the centre but this is not a problem. From the lobby as well as from the dining room the view of the landscape is amazing. All the staff is always at your service to help you also to arrange trips or other stuff. We have no hesitation to advice this hotel.

We felt very comfortable staying here. If you have to find the hotel on your own, it could be a challenge as the sign is not well stationed. Its high up a gravel hill that makes it difficult to get into town, a 20 minute walk. The food there is great, and we love Marasita the cute young chef. She's a friendly as it gets and if you build a relationship with her, she'll take great care of you at breakfast the next morning. The rooms lack air conditioning and I didn't sleep under the sheets at all. If that is a minor detail for you, you will enjoy your stay. All the staff is helpful
