Great views and overall great hotel. The hotel staff were helpful in making bookings for tours and taxis. The pool and view from the pool was great. The food could probably be improved upon and our hotel room (lake view) got extremely hot due to the big glass windows which made the bedroom like a little greenhouse.

The hotel is great. The view of the Laguna Suite is amazing, the rooms are very comfortable, the service is really good, the building is beautiful and the amenities work very well. The only thing I'd complain about is that the last day the pool didn't look 100% clean, probably of some kind of fungus. But overall we loved the... More

This hotel was a great stop for me after a few nights in a log cabin in patagonia. The bathrooms and rooms are very nice, views are great when the fog is gone haha. The tiles on the bathroom floor are heated and the jacuzzi is great after long hiking days. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Loved this hotel when we stayed a dozen years ago. Great service, top comfort and great service. Looks like they've upgraded it nicely! Close but not too close to town and right on the Lago. Would stay again though we always like to try different spots each time.

We spent there 2 nights. Obviously we came to see a glacier. We booked a suite with outstanding view on the lake. We enjoyed every minute there. No complains. Good service, comfortable and big room. Not sure I understand why people want to stay in el calafate downtown if you cannot wake up and see the lake. It's absolutely one... More

Most people who feel disappointed with the hotel feel so because they are classified as a four star hotel.. this is at best a 3 star hotel with 5 star people and 7 star views.. the breakfast is awesome! Try their boxed lunches for one of your excursions, you won't be disappointed.

The hotel has a wonderful sight of the Lago Argentino. It's cosy and the staff are very friendly. Try to speak a little of Spanish! Our room has it's window to the lake and the sunrise and sundown was unforgettable.

The employees were friendly and did a solid job. Room was spacious and clean. I was happy that it was clean because we changed from another hotel we had booked and we have been welcomed by lots of spiders! So for me the most important thinh was that it is clean here. Beds were very comfortable. As a result of... More

We - group of 4 - spent one night in this hotel. The day we arrived it was my girlfriend's birthday and Ariel in reception asked for four glasses of Champagne! Really nice of him.

Hotel and rooms are nice, breakfast was OK but not great. No shuttle and about an hour's walk to town, so we had to take a lot of taxi's (easy and cheap, but a little bit of a bother). Staff are really great. Wifi was free but slow
