Stylish, yet comfy cozy. Loved all the furniture, particularly the benches topped with lambs wool.

We stayed here for three nights in late December and we thought this was a good choice for our trip. The hotel is beautiful with a great decor. Our room was the standart one and we considered it to be perfect for our needs. Comfy bed, big and clean bathroom. Breakfast is good with a lot of options of cakes... More

We stayed three nights at Esplendor, one in a regular room and two in the suite. While the regular room was very nice, for the extra $20 or so, we highly recommend getting the suite. It was HUGE, with a great bathroom, sitting area, and separate soaking tub. The hotel was a quick walk up a hill from the town,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights - we flew to Calafate, then drove to TDP and visited the Perito Moreno Glacier upon returning to Calafate. We found Esplendor to be a perfect place to stay for the very brief time we were in Calafate. Before we arrived they helped us book the big ice tour so that... More

View was amazing from the Penthouse Suites. I have to say that I was not impressed by the hotel facilities. No parking infront of the Hotel so we had to drag our heavy luggages up the cliff on the hotel to get inside. They should have paved it so cars can drop of hotel guests right infront of the door....

This is a nice option in El Calafate, removed from the packed main street. Our room was large and nicely furnished. Compared to the other options we considered, this was a good value and we'd recommend it to travelers looking for a boutique hotel.

Great location on a hill overlooking El Calafate. The design is very contemporary and much better than the other hostel/faux chalet look through out the town. The breakfast was very comprehensive and presented in a nice room overlooking town. The town of El Calafate is nothing more than a weigh station to the incredible outdoor beauty nearby. Spend as little... More

First of all: I don´t really know what was the reason (luck, maybe?), but our room - Suite - was AMAZING! An apartment, almost. And for a very reasonable price! Excellent location, very good staff. A tip: find the restaurant "De Antaño" and you will know what is a perfect meat.
