To sum it up: great service, great staff, comfortable surroundings, breathtaking scenery, fantastic food. We will be back.
I have visited Argentina/Mendoza three times and stayed in Valle de Uco two times, and I feel like we hit the jackpot with Alpasion! From the first moment, we were greeted by Ursula. Federico took great care of us before we arrived (making reservations) and while we were there. There was not a moment that we didn't feel welcomed and comfortable in this beautiful lodge.
The design of the building was done with an eye to blend in with the surrounding landscape. It fit incredibly well with the striking scenery of the Andes mountains and vineyards. Our room (Agua) was so nice...last room in the building. It had a sunken bathtub/shower that had a window to the outside, so you could shower while still enjoying the scenery. My favorite part of the room for sure! The bed was unbelievably comfortable, too.
And the food, prepared by the chef, was as good as any high quality restaurant. Apparently, the chef used to be the chef at the Park Hyatt in Mendoza City, so it really isn't a surprise that the food was so good. I don't know if I liked the risotto or the chicken with provolone & balsamic was my favorite...
All that is great, but what really made the stay that much more impressive/nice was the attention to certain details that were evident throughout our stay. First, the floors were heated (yes, there were HEATED FLOORS!)-which is good when you are walking on concrete floors in the fall. But they could have taken an easy route and had throw rugs everywhere. I loved the heated floors!
Next, our room (and the lobby, and maybe the other rooms...I am not sure as I didn't go into any other room) had a 110 volt outlet. So while we had 1 converter with us, this allows us to charge two things at once.
And the other thing that was incredibly helpful was that they had a GPS we could use during our travels around Valle de Uco. This was exceptionally helpful as our rental car company had none available for us when we picked up our car. As roads are not well marked, this was a bit of a life saver...or at least saved Federico from having to receive phone calls from us saying we were lost...again.
In all, I can't say enough about how you should stay here on your next visit to Valle de Uco. They have a great set up and a team that genuinely takes pride in providing their guests with the best possible experience. Many thanks to Federico and Alpasion for our fantastic stay. We will be back.
