As with all of the Fantastico Sur refugios in the park, this one was strategically located right in the middle of the W circuit and in a very beautiful location right on a stunning rock beach. The accomodations were similar to the other refugios, very cramped bedrooms, cramped common area, small bathrooms, not enough hooks to hang clothes to dry or shelves to store personal items. On the positive side, the beds were warm and clean and the food was actually pretty decent, atleast on the night that we stayed here. While certain of the staff were pleasant, others were cold and impatient, particularly during meal service. We felt as if we were bothering them at times in asking for simple things like a refill of hot water for tea and coffee. As with the other Fantastico Sur refugios, my main complaint is that the high price charged for bed and board is not justified by what is provided. Clearly, the owners of these refugios are aware that hikers (who don't wish to camp) have no where else to go and therefore there is no incentive to improve or offer a better product and service.
