The Hotel Las Dunas is situated in an isolated location on slope overlooking Lake Argentina, and this position gives it uninterrupted views out over lake and to the mountains beyond. The center of El Calafate is a about 3KM away and takes 25 minutes to walk at a brisk pace. If you're not in rush it's quite a pleasant walk... More

I hesitated in booking a hotel in Calafate because all of them seemed to have some problem: far from town, overpriced, shabby. But Hotel Las Dunas seemed the best of all worlds and we were really quite happy there. The room was clean, modern and comfortable -- and quite large, with a deck and a fabulous view of Lago Argentino.... More

The rooms offer a very nice view on the lake and are confortable too. It is not too far from the center and shuttle will bring you there. For excursions, it is ok too as organisers come and pick you up.

I only have great comments to give to this great hotel. The rooms are new, spacious and clean. The view is unbeatable in front of the lake and mountains. There is a shuttle bus that brings you to the centre. We had the Christmas Eve dinner here which was awsome. The buffet breakfast was nice. I would definitely go back.
