“Lovely Family Run Wine Country Posada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The brothers that run this place were so friendly and helpful that we ended up staying there several extra days. It's in a sweet, quiet, tree-lined town close to many wineries and plenty of nice restaurants. They have a pool which is essential in the heat of the summer and a great area in the lobby to hang out and eat, chat, or watch tv.

My boyfriend and I stayed here November and I have not stopped thinking about it since. After many months of jam packed hostels this was exactly what we needed. The rooms were basic but so cozy. The ac worked wonderfully and the beds were very comfortable. The grounds were gorgeous and it was so nice to come back after a long day of wine tasting and sit in the back and taste more wine from the cellar downstairs. The family that runs the posada are so helpful and eager to answer any questions you might have including restaurant suggestions that you must listen to. Do not miss dinner and tasting at Clos de Chacras!

A small, family-owned place who go out of their way to make sure you get everything you want out of your vacation. The rooms are small and quaint, but comfortable and clean.The location is a short drive outside of Mendoza, in a small quiet town.

The two oldest brothers that manage the posada are very nice and helpful and location is good. Nearby you can rent bikes to go around and you also have wineries walking distance.
However in our room there was dust on bedsides and bathtub was not cleaned properly. Breakfast was very basic.
Some noise late at night because of private BBQs thrown by owners. While we stayed there the posada was nearly empty so that may have had an impact on our stay.

My stay at "The Posada" was truly magical! A comfortable, affordable, impeccable lodge close to the beautiful town of Chacras de Coria, which is 30 minutes from the city of Mendoza. We stayed for five nights and were so fortunate to be made to feel like part of the family as all of members of the Berlin family look out for all of their guests every need. They recommended and arranged for activities to include a private wine tour, although the best experience was a relaxing and fun day spent on the property enjoying an authentic and yummy asado! A close walk to downtown with easy access to restaurants, shops and bodegas but, behind the gates of the Posada, relaxation and tranquility... I highly recommend Posada El Encuentro and hope to return again very soon!

I stayed here for a few days/nights and it was a great place to relax. The brothers were very friendly and helpful during my stay. They have their own wine cellar. The B&B is just a few blocks walk from the centre plaza in Chacras. I would highly recommend staying in Chacras rather than Mendoza if you want to escape the city feeling.

We stayed there for part of our honeymoon. It was very clean, quaint and very charming. The architecture of the building is unbelievable. The guys who run the place are always there if you need something and are very personable. The recommendations they had for dinner were perfect. During the evening the lighting in the great room is very relaxing to read, drink wine and just hang out. I highly recommend this place to anyone. If you are a runner it is very safe to run in the neighborhoods and you are able to walk in to town which is just blocks away. There is also 3 biking companies to walk to if you want to rent bikes for a day or two. There are some wineries that you can walk to as well. I can not say enough great things to say about this place and the people who work there! I think there names are Silvina, Nataly and Cata.
