We decided to take a trip to Mendoza for the long weekend, and stumbled upon Club Tapiz online. We got the 3 nights for 2 deal that they offer from May to August, and were absolutely thrilled! The hotel is like a small estancia 20 minutes away from Mendoza around a 75-130 peso cab ride. It has a wonderful feel to it and combines the experience of staying in a lux hotel and staying at a vineyard away from the city. We visited the city of Mendoza and fully realized after out day tour that we made the right choice in staying outside of town. The rooms are very clean, with cable television, wifi, safe, big closet, comfortable bed and very clean linens. The hotel has a wonderful restaurant with a resident chef. The menu has everything you would need but not too much choice that you are lost. They also have a wonderful wine list. We ate there once for lunch and twice for dinner and had amazing meals each time. The waiters who work there are very friendly and know a lot about the region and the Tapiz vineyard. Every night before dinner there is a wine tasting in the living room by the fire, which is wonderful because you often want to carry on drinking the same wine for dinner and know exactly what to order. The staff are extremely friendly and got very excited when we told them about our interest in going to the vineyards for the day, and came up with several amazing options. We ended up hiring a driver for the entire day (all through the hotel) who took us to the Tapiz vineyard 15 minutes a way from the hotel. You are entitled as a guest to a free tour and visit to the vineyard and it is SO SO worth it. They know you are hotel guest so you get a full hour and a half tour of the entire vineyard (we rode a horse carriage around the grounds) and learn everything about the wines, tasting them as you go along. Juan was so kind and was clearly passionate about his work at Tapiz. You get more attention than you would at any other wine tour (we were the only ones!) The vineyard does not have the same commercial and touristy feel as many of the other vineyards do. We then had lunch at another near by vineyard called Belasco de Baquedeano which was also recommended by Tapiz and was flawless too. We had massages at the hotel in the spa and saunas every evening. The hotel also organized a day at the mountains for us after our request and we came back from an evening in the Mendoza city with everything booked and organzied. They are true professionals. Complimentary breakfast was also amazing and you could request eggs however you liked them. We are young students living and studying in Buenos Aires and we were treated so well that I would recommend this spot to any young couple who want to be in the countryside but in a personal and welcoming hotel. 100% would come back again and would recommend to everyone who doesn't want to spend a fortune on something just as good as Tapiz.
