My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. At $500 per room per night we expected much more. Check in was a nightmare and once shown to our rooms we went to find the guy in charge. We were told he would be there to answer any questions. It took us 10 minutes to find him He said he was on his dinner break. He had no answers to the most basic of questions. We were then told by someone else that the hike we were interested in was not circular. That again was false info. The rooms were lovely but our towels were not changed even though we left them on the floor. We complained to the manager Johanna and said that we did not want to stay for the remaining 3 nights. We asked for our money back. We were told we could have 1 night back. My advice would be do not waste your money staying here. We found the whole experience really a let down and upsetting. It took 4 weeks and countless emails to get our money back.

just completed a four night stay at this very comfortable oasis near Cochrane, in Aisen portion of Patagonia; the quality of construction, fixtures, bed, linens was excellent, the service staff were universally friendly and accommodating; the buildings complimented the surrounding natural setting; the rooms are spacious and there are also public/common areas for relaxation replete with hoards of big picture books profiling other regional national parks should one somehow tire of the views right outside the windows, which include regular sightings of guanacos, fox, hares, and birds. all those very fine features now mentioned, the food was surprisingly mediocre - quality, presentation, variety, texture, and flavor were all in short supply here; my wife ate much better meat and fish elsewhere in Patagonia; as a vegetarian I myself struggled to enjoy what I had after breakfast (bag lunch for hiking was extremely poor; pasta at dinner should be easily delivered, but was quite poor); it was honestly very disappointing to be served such fare in this otherwise wonderful setting, and this disappointment is why I do not rate this place “5 stars”, though in all other respects it would warrant the highest score. Unfortunately unless you are camping and cooking for yourself, there are no other readily available dining options. This problem is also unfortunately not unique to Parque Patagonia (read my reviews of the abject state of dining in parts of Yellowstone National Park).

We stayed at the Lodge at Valle Chacabuco for 3 nights in mid-November 2018. The accommodations were 5* spectacular (!) and the service in the restaurant and administrative office (a separate building) were equally exceptional. The Park, restaurant and accommodations couldn't ever be busy - The Lodge itself only has about 10 accommodations total in 2 buildings. (Camping areas are also located nearby, but I'm not sure any campers used the restaurant.) We stayed in Nirre - one of three (?) accommodations in the Lodge Annex. Dining in the restaurant is PHENOMENAL, and box lunches can easily be arranged (we found we could split one lunch for 2 people). Hiking in the area is great. Go here if you want to experience a beautiful natural part of Chile without the crowds of Torres del Paine. This place is truly unique. Quirks (to some) might be that cell service appears non-existent, Wifi service is spotty and was available to us only in the common area of The Lodge Annex building, and electricity is turned off from 12am-7am each day (they provide a battery operated lamp, but we brought headlamps - no big deal). And it's a long drive down a gravel road to get there - but well worth it!!

I had no clue this place was here. I searched for a hotel in the area I was traveling and it looked nice. But upon arrival, we were really blown away. This was really a nice place to stay. The staff were wonderful and we were really treated as guests. Would love to go again.

The last full week in November, I had the privilege of staying here for 4 nights while hiking in Parque Patagonia in the Asyen Region of Chile near the confluence of the Baker and Chacabucco Rivers. I was part of a commercial group of 12 plus a group leader/hiking guide from Wilderness Travel. We were not the only guests here during our visit. The two guest buildings (lodges) and the bar/restaurant building are beautifully built inside and out with a wonderful mix of wood and stone. Visit their web site to see them and to learn about this fabulous Parque. The attention to detail in these buildings is phenomenal! The same style and materials are used in most of the other Parque buildings as well. The two lodge buildings are not identical but similar in concept – separate nicely furnished guest rooms with bathrooms in-suite, and a large common area for all guests to use. The common areas in each of these building are lavishly and comfortably furnished and have their own bar service and bartender during the day serving coffee, tea, snacks, beer and wine. The main bar in the restaurant building, however, was the center of social activity after hiking and before dinner. The dining room is huge and the views are wonderful from this building as are the views from the two lodge buildings. The hiking here is spectacular, especially the Aviles (10 miles, +2,083 feet) and Laguna Atlas (14 miles, +4,160 feet) Trails. The trails in the Parque very well maintained and we were there during the birthing season of the guanaco and saw numerous chulengos. There were many guanaco grazing right outside of the lodge buildings. We saw red fox near the lodge buildings on 3 of the 4 days, and there are lots of bird species here. We did not see any pumas (mountain lions) but they are here also. The staff at the Parque were all wonderful and live right on the property. According to the Parque’s web site, “In 2004, Conservacion Patagonica purchased the 170,500-acre Estancia Valle Chacabuco, located in a biologically critical area in Aysén, Chile, and contiguous to the Jeinimeni Reserve the north and the Tamango Reserve to the south. Since acquiring the estancia, smaller land acquisitions have allowed us to expand to nearly 200,000 acres. Upon donation, Jeinimeni and Tamango will join Patagonia Park to become the 640,000-acre Patagonia National Park. By designating this area as a national park, the land and its wildlife will receive the highest level of protection available in Chile. We anticipate the donation of the park to the Chilean state will occur in the near future. Until then, the park is open to the public as a private park, October through April.”
