Great location, close to restaurants, amenities, and bus station. The cabins are gorgeus, clean, and well laid out. The staff is extremely helpful and the breakfast is excellent. Wi-Fi internet very reasonable too.

Pros - cabins are spacious and clean with separate bedroom (with tv), kitchenette (with a small fridge, microwave and hotplate - good if you feel like cooking or want home cooked food), living /dining combo. - staff are friendly and accommodating - location is...

My daughter and I spent four nights in a two bedroom apartment. Location is an easy walk from the bus station (albeit uphill on the way back) and the apartments are 30 metres from the main street but very quiet. The apartment are clean, comfortable and well equipped although if you want to do a lot of self catering (why...

I stayed here for 2 nights and it was very nice and comfortable. The location was a short walk from the bus station and just 2 short blocks from the center of town. The gal at the front desk was extremely helpful with suggestions of hikes and tours. I enjoyed the location, the property itself is well maintained. Breakfast was...

We unfortunately had only one night at the Santa Monica Apartments when we were there in January 2017, would have been happy to stay longer. Very convenient to town, and walking distance to restaurants, supermarket, and shops. We had a car, and parking was easy as well. The rooms were really well equipped compared to other places we had stayed...

The cabins are quaint, clean, and well-equipped with a handy kitchenette. The breakfasts were substantial and delivered on time each morning. Great location for exploring the small downtown area and our organized tours also picked us up from the hotel. The front office staff were very helpful!

The one and two bedroom cabins are on a street off the main road which makes it a nice quiet place to stay. Clean and well equipped. The staff was very helpful making tour recommendations, and taxi or airport transfer reservations. We had the best empanadas from Wilckens just around the corner!

Had a great night here wish we could have stayed longer. It is downtown and convenient but still quiet. The grounds of the facility are kept very well. Service was fantastic. The cabins are furnished well however the couch was a bit rough.

We were traveling with another couple and cabin #6 was the perfect place for the 4 of us to stay in Calafate. It was cozy with a small living room, a practical small kitchen, 2 bedrooms (both on the small side, but it's expected on a small cabin) and a shared bath. The grounds around the wood cabins are nicely...

If you like berries, there are two trees where you can have raspberries and a typical "cherry like" fruit directly from them. Have to admit that I loved it! Houses are superb! Location is a must they bring breakfast to your home (so you eat at the comfort of your bed, but with limited variety of options).
