Montreal, Canada5 contributions1 helpful vote
El Carmelo is truly exceptional. I have never seen anything quite like it. It has an amazing private view of the mountains. It is elegant and spacious. The service is professional and everything is made easy so that you can relax after a day of exploring the surroundings. Most of all, there is a unique quieting serene energy. I felt at peace with myself here and I highly recommend it!

This lodge is truly special. One of the most unique, luxurious, private and memorable places I have every stayed. From the massive private suite, the breathtaking mountain views, the luxurious and curated details, the sparkling private pool and the in-room meals, this is the place to go when exploring from Mendoza. Completely hidden off the main road in Portrerillos, less than an hour from the city, this is the romantic, private getaway to make time for. Hand built by Ricardo, who is a wonderful host.

The Carmelo Mountain Lodge it's a wonderful place where all and every little detail is closely watched by Ricardo and his family , owners and one of the best hosts we have ever met. It's an ideal place for a very romantic experience topped with an exquisite gourmet cuisine and, of course completed with wonderful Mendoza's fine wines. The rooms are very confortable with just the perfect combination between size and cozyness!! Fully equipped with the latest technology that will make you feel at home. The view from your bed, same that from your terrace where you would have the best dinners and breakfasts ever, is something that can't be described with words! You need to experience it !! Five stars PLUS!! We will definitively we'll go back!

Excellent place, an unbeatable view, added to a first class service. Waking up with the view of the mountains is a photograph that I will never erase from my mind. For the New Year, a dinner was held for the guests, receiving the year in the best way. 10/10 and see you back next year.

After my third visit to El Carmelo Mountain Lodge, I’m at a loss for words. This place has become one of my favorite places in the world - one where I know I can unwind and soak up every moment of sun with a breathtaking view of the mountains. The owner and care team ensure the visit is customized from start to finish, and the food is out of this world. At this point, I know the Lodge is a place I’ll visit for the rest of my life. I’m eternally grateful for the hospitality and buena onda.

This place is exactly as it is described: amazing views, extraordinary rooms, meticulously appointed and maintained. Ricardo, the owner, with the help of his daughter make all the difference with their personal attention. Our only regret is not staying longer than three nights. We seldom visit the same exact location twice, this is one we would.

A cozy place, with a very good standard in its decoration and equipped so that you lack nothing; with those little details that make the stay very pleasant. With comfortable spaces and an impressive view of the mountains, and the greatest of cordialities from the hosts. A place that I would recommend for those who go with their own vehicle ... more than successful to disconnect and rest, and very close for mountain sightsees. Homemade dinners, with different options, also to stand out.

El Carmelo is simply incredible! From our room to the grounds to the help planning our trip to the meals - everything was impeccable. Ricardo and Diana are amazing hosts - so accommodating but not intrusive. The expansive views from the room were unbeatable. The mountain range is gorgeous and constantly changing. The immaculate room had everything we could have wanted and more including a well stocked refrigerator, comfortable bed and lovely patio for lounging or dining. El Carmelo was the perfect place for our first trip to Mendoza - we will definitely return.
