This small hotel is beautiful, well located (close to Villa La Angostura center - about 2km) and excellent accommodation. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Good breakfast, following the Argentine standard. The panoramic view of the lake is actually a differential of this little paradise.

We stayed two nights at the Don El Faro and enjoyed it. The only downside is the lack of air conditioning. The room got very hot and was hard to cool down. That meant napping and later sleeping at night was uncomfortable. The main room is lovely and has a wonderful view of the lake. I spent a fair amount... More

The suites were spacious, clean, and had all that was necesary. Food was simple but very well made. The pool was warm, and also, it had a very nice hot tub. The service was really good, as the receptionist was always smiling. The bathrooms were perfect. If you go here, get ready for a jaw-dropping lakefront experience.

We were spending a week in Villa La Angostura with friends from couples looking for a different ski location. The hotel is very good, the service always excellence and rooms big and with a very good bathroom. The hotel has made my stay in Villa La Angostura much better than I have expected.

This is actually a gorgeous place. Fantastic view, great breakfast. My non-enthusiastic review is based on this: I decided to splurge and reserved and paid long in advance with booking.com for an upgraded room. When we arrived, they told us the room we paid for was "unavailable" and therefore we'd been "downgraded." I asked about a refund for the difference... More
