“Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2010

We had a wonderful holiday at Posada Olivar. Jose was an excellent host. He bent over backwards to accomodate our requests. He is well connected with local tour guides and gladly arranges activities for his guests. His Posada is clean and comfortable. The pool is refreshing after a hot day sightseeing. His staff is gracious and warm. The breakfasts were delicious and included homemade jams and fresh strawberries from his own garden. We would highly recommend.

We stayed at Posada Olivar for 3 nights while we were visiting Mendoza's beautiful vineyards and the Andes. Jose welcomed us warmly, provided us with a map of the charming town of Chacras de Coria, made lunch reservations for us at the nearby vineyard at Clos de Chacra, and arranged for us to rent bikes to visit some neighboring wineries and explore. The rooms were quite big and airy, with lots of light, large comfortable beds, and with doors that open to a terrace and overlook the pool and small olive and fruit orchard. The posada itself is lovely and charming, very private and you feel right at home, with access to the kitchen and the shared common room. Our favorite part of our trip was spending the day at the Posada, lounging at the pool after a hot day exploring the wineries and later having some late night glasses of wine on the terrace. Jose was more than helpful, arranging our taxi rides, making reservations at the vineyards and providing us excellent recommendations for vineyards (the small family-owned boutique organic winery of Pulmary is a must!) and restaurants. The town of Chacras itself is only 20 minutes outside of the city of Mendoza and close to surrounding vineyards, some of which can be accessed via taxi or car, and this transportation can be arranged at the Posada.

This was such a wonderful stay for a bed & breakfast. We reviewed so many places to see where we wanted to stay in Mendoza, and I think we just ultimately, got very lucky with our decision about Posada. Once you arrive, you immediately are greeted and welcomed! They make you feel at home, very cozy and very very friendly people. My husband and I want to return so bad because it was such a nice trip! We want to go in the summer though because we went right when winter was ending and it wasn't harvest season, and we couldn't go swimming! (They have a huge, magnificent swimming pool!) So, I can only imagine how great it'd be during the summer time eating Argentina's yummy food and bbq.

We stayed at Posada Olivar for 5 days and had a wonderful time. The house and grounds around it were beautiful and our room was very spacious. The Posada is quiet, but also very close to the town center, a couple excellent restaurants, the Clos de Chacras winery (highly recommended for lunch), and the Nuss bakery (the alfajores are amazing there). It was nice to be close to a lot of things given that our luggage arrived in Mendoza two days after we did.

Jose Luis is an excellent host. He came with us to Carmelo Patti's winery so we had a translator while visiting with him. He also made taxi reservations for us all week so we were going to the right places. We also enjoyed just talking with him about Argentine culture and sharing some of or Argentina experiences with him.

We would recommend anyone stay there and experience a few days outside of Mendoza City.

Posada Olivar was the highlight of our 2 week holiday. Jose was the perfect host and went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable - even to the extent of driving us into town to help us get a refund on our bus tickets (we missed the bus).

The Posada itself is very peaceful and the grounds are just beautiful. The rooms were huge and immaculate, and the breakfast of warm pastries and homemade jams was delicious.

We cannot rate the Posada highly enough and we hope to return sometime in the future.

My wife and I stayed at Posada Olivar last week and loved every minute of it. Our room was large, and the bed was comfortable. It was very quiet, and we enjoyed relaxing with a bottle of wine on the patio outside our room. We enjoyed breakfast every day, great coffee, orange juice and a wide assortment of breads, pastries and sandwiches. Posada Olivar is located near many wonderful wineries and restaurants. The best thing about it is Jose himself He helped us with restaurant suggestions and made winery appointments for us. We had made many appointments before we arrived. He sat down with us and showed where the wineries really were located when the maps were a little off. The main building is very nice as are the grounds. We felt as if we were staying with a friend, a friend who guided us as we explored Mendoza. Jose will insure that you enjoy your stay in Mendoza.

There is not much more that I can add to the previous reviews, as they are very descriptive, detailed and very true to our own experience at the posada. I would like to say that Jose is a wonderful host - courteous, friendly, polite, knowledgeable, always willing to help and completely unobtrusive. The entire experience was absolutely incredible. And homemade apricot jam was to die for!
