We spent four days at the lodge as a couple n their late 20's and had a fantastic experience! With reference to the review below, whilst the rooms aren't luxury they are pleasant and exceptionally clean with a modern bathroom (great shower), comfy bed and great fan system. The lodge was exactly what we wanted as we spent our evenings drinking too much wine with new friends staying at the lodge in the gardens.
We couldnt have had a better time in Maipu, whilst the owner wasnt there, he had left the lodge with Elena who is an absolute gem! We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming and friendly sub-host, she booked our wine tours, picked out boutique vine yards to our taste, and is even in the process of shipping and ordering wines for us AFTER we have left as the post office was closed on Sunday when we were leaving.
We found the lodge very sociable, and spent 4 of our 5 days in the area doing activities and dinners with guests at the lodge. We loved being out of Mendoza city and bike rides from the wineries. The lodge has a frequent bus (every 10 mins) direct to the city and the bus station for under AR$3 each, which is a 10min walk up a straight road from he lodge.
The only difficulty we had was there were not many restaurants open at night within walking distance, and therefore a communal kitchen could be useful for people who don't want to travel too far in the evening. Having said that, five of us enjoyed a great meal at the local Parilla restaurant and a cheese / meat evening at the lodge another after a supermarket trip (10 mins away).
Overall we couldn't have asked more of the lodge, guests or host Elena. This is for people who want to get out the city, enjoy a bit of quiet and meet new people for wine filled evenings, and enjoy not being too holed up in a room.
