Had a good experience at Santa Monica Aparts. The location is great as it is right off of the Main Street in El Calafate. The cabins are a little bare bones but totally adequate as you won't spend much time there, instead you will be out doing day-long excursions. The staff is very nice and helpful. The breakfast is a...

Month long stay while on a project in El Calafate. The staff were warm and gracious, helping us with our Spanish, questions about where to go during our limited free time. The cabins were perfect for our small group, allowing us to car pool and keep in touch as needed. Everyone from the owners, to reception to those who cleaned...

We have had to drop back to El Calafate for just one night, so we try a well reviewed place at the other end of town. Mistake. It is not nice being ripped off on the tariff. Management attempted to overcharge by 25% on the Bookings fee. Also, twin beds were tiny, not for normal people, even in Argentina! Floors...

We stayed at night at Santa Monica Apts based on reviews we read on Tripadvisor. The cabins are very cosy, and there are pears on the trees when we were there. I would recommend this place when staying in El Calafate

Well I wasn't the most lucky in El Calafate. It was so foggy we had to land in a town 4 hours by his drive away. Not a problem. When I arrived at 11 pm the cheerful lady who spoke no English showed me to my gorgeous room and asked what time would I like breakfast served. 8 am please....

The location: This place was right off the main road and within easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and the supermarket. They have a few parking spaces which was nice for us since we'd rented a car. The cabin: I don't think the photos do this place justice! Our cabin was very cozy, had everything we needed and was so...

The place was very beautiful and clean. The hotel clerks were very helpful. They brought our breakfast to our room every morning. The price was right for this hotel with all exquisite landscape that surrounded it. All in all an awesome experience!

Stayed one night enroute to TdP. Charming and centrally located, log cabin themed property, very close to the main street. Good wi-fi. Continental Breakfast served to the room (no restaurant or buffet service) promptly at 6am(!) at the time I asked for it. Would strongly recommend...

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and we very much liked it. The cabins are spatious, enclude a little kitchen, and are spread in a very calm green lawn. Very clean. Breakfast was served at any time there. The persons at the desk were friendly, funny and very helpful. A gem in Calafate.

The cozy wood cabin is only a half block off the main street, but it feels like you are in a forest. We had a very nice sitting room with a kitchenette. The breakfast is delivered to your door. The staff were very helpful in organizing our visit. And the price was great!
