“Honesty in providing location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had a heck of a time finding this place because the address provided was a block off its actual location; darned difficult to find after dark, especially if they don't answer the phone to help (which they didn't)! (Hint: seek a phone book.) Laundry service was great. Loved the spacious cabin, kitchen table, double bed room, twins.Great for small family. Warm. Good garden, nice view. Good parking. Breakfast breads somewhat stale; appreciated ham and cheese the second day. Coffee press needed repairing, but coffee was great.

Room Tip: The one-storey cabins are great.

We went here as a newlywed couple on our honey moon. The staff was attentive and gave us a nice champaign as a present.

This place does a few things better than others. They bring you the breakfast the day before which makes it fantastic if you want sleep in that day. The breakfast is also above average compared to other places where we stayed.

The 'cabin' we got was more like a town house. There's a dining area, bathroom, and kitchen downstairs. Upstairs is a master bedroom and a smaller bedroom with two single person beds (great place for luggage). The style is very rustic with wood almost everywhere. Wifi worked as well even though we had the room farthest in the building.

There's also a restaurant on site which we never tried. But the yard is well maintained with roses and grass.

Enjoy!

We stayed here for three nights, and one night on our return from El Cheltan, there were 4 adults in our group, the cabins were clean, a bit tight as the previous reviewer had mentioned, but we were out most of the day. The previous reviews are actuate, breakfast is delivered at night. It is a good 20 minute walk into town, but the cabs cost around A$25.

The restaurant has a good selection of food, with vegetarian options.

All staff were very friendly.

We used Solares Del Sur as a base for our trips to and from Chile's Torres del Paine, El Chalten and to see the Perito Moreno glacier (twice) from El Calafate. We stayed in their beautiful, comfortable cabins surrounded by beautiful roses, jasmines and other flowers. We got to know Martin and the other staff and it felt like friendly family-- at a respectful distance though-- every time we returned. Martin spoke excellent English, was very welcoming and fun, and a very hard worker who would do everything to please. He made sure we were taken care of, helped make sure we had transportation when we needed it and made sure we felt comfortable.

It was nice having the breakfast stuff delivered the night before to our room, so we could eat at our own convenience. We loved walking down the hill to the lake and seeing the flamingos and walking into town along the walkway that follows the lake shore. We loved being out of town and ate every dinner at their excellent restuarant with a magnificent view with ever changing colors of water, mountains and hills. You will not go wrong staying here!

Stayed here with four other guys for two nights in December. The place was tight, but comfortably fit each of us in our own bed. Got in late the first night and enjoyed a lamb stew cooked in the restaurant. Delicious! The room included breakfast (simple breads, cereal, coffee, juice) and the DirecTV let us watch the New England Patriots game. Lastly, Martin was an unbelievable concierge/host, helping us book taxis, bus tickets, and other accommodations.

Martin was great. He took care of all our bookings, handled our many requests for information and was very attentive to our comfort and needs. Solares del Sur is a tranquil setting with nice views of the lake. It is also well-located for the glacier tours because it is the last pickup / first dropoff spot for the buses. Location is a little bit out of town but cabs are $5 at most and easy to get. I think you get more for your money at Solares.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights. It is our first log cabin experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a kitchen with cooking stuffs so you may prepare your own food if you want. There are heaters in every room and together with the lightening the cabin is very cozy in a cold night. It has wifi with reasonable speed. Breakfast is delivered to the cabin early evening including juice, milk, breads, cereals, and cakes. The best part, however, is its people. Everyone of them working there is extremely friendly and helpful. Martin, in particular, gave us so much help. He speaks perfect English.
The only problem with this place is that it is a bit far from the town. We went there for shopping and it took us half an hour one way. But we enjoyed the walking. Also, all the tours will pick you up at the hotel so the location does not really matter anyway.
