Not only it was probably the best part of our trip to La Patagonia but we were lucky to have stayed in La Cantera. The staff was great and very helpful. From the second we arrived, they were more thanhappy to help us arrange any tour we had in mind and gave terrific suggestions as to where to go, what to eat, what to do. The room was spacious, very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was very complete with tons of options to choose from. And not only that! Even though they start serving breakfast at 6 am, the day we left to go to Torres del Paine (at 5:30) they had the full breakfast display ready for us at 5 am!
It is up in a hill, a short walk to the main street and even though it is a little steep, I think for somebody going to El Calafate, ready to explore the nature, that walk should not be a problem at all. They also have a taxi that operates in the evenings and you call from wherever you are in town and picks you up and takes you back to the hotel if you don't feel like walking (which is very convenient when you're really exhausted).
One of the best parts of it is their incredible Chef. Seems like he would only take care of one table at a time and they schedule it that way. In our case, he both prepared and served the table and the food was exquisit! It truly feels like a 5 start restaurant experience, with the romantic view of a Patagonian sunse over the beautiful Lake Argentina for a very affordable price (Do not miss!!!)
We recommend La Cantera without reservation and would definitely go back!
