Hotel Peninsula Valdes
Ranked #5 of 23 Hotels in Puerto Madryn
Reviewed October 24, 2011

We got a "panoramico" room so had a big room with a view of the bay. The room was very nice, clean, comfortable with a big bathroom. The view was nice since we could sit in one of the chairs and look at the whales playing near the beach. The hotel personnel were very business like and did not go out of their way to anticipate your needs. They responded properly to requests in a coldish manner but responded as needed. The breakfast bar was a big disappointment. The juice was not freshly squeezed but tasted as if they used "Tang". The eggs were VERY runny. It seemed that we were always getting to the breakfast room right after everything had been used up so we were always asking the one waiter to have one or more items refilled. The response was always "yes, it is being prepared now" which meant that we had a 5 to 10 minute wait.

I stayed in room 501 and the view over the beach and the see are lovely. The room is big and very clean. Wireless internet works ok. Minibar is cheap. Bed is really good.
Breakfast is a real disapointment and the coffee tastes of clorine.

The hotel location is very good indeed! Near everything in PM. Good restaurants, beach, etc.. The rooms are a little bit disappointing! I was expecting more ... for the price. The restaurant is more or less the same. Basic, with good food, but basic. The service is not equivalent to a 4* hotel. Sometimes they forget the requests. I know that this things happen but ... more than once, is not good.

The hotel is very centrally located and right at the coast. Our room had a wonderful sea-view and was very spacious. The staff at the reception was very helpful with organizing trips and transfers.

Good place to stay in Puerto Madryn.

We stayed here for two nights in early November 2010. The hotel is in a good location, on the seafront and close to restaurants and shops. Our room was huge, with two double beds, a sofa and table. The room was clean and the bathroom was fine. There was wi-fi available in the room. There were two lots of parking available; we parked around the back of the hotel which is free. There is also a paid car park although not sure where. Breakfast was continental with good choice of food.

Friendly front desk. Very clean rooms - at least on the 8th floor - lower floors looked a little shabbier. Breakfast was pretty good. No clock in the room. Comfortable queen bed. Free wifi and 2 computers available for guests. The price was a little high (US$ 200 a night), but it was high season, I called 3 days in advance, the hotel was full and I didn't negotiate.

There was underground parking - not sure if it was free.

If you have come to see the whales, do not miss the trip to El Doradillo beach - 20 mins by car. Travel agent (next door) will arrange for a car. Ideally you need to go around high tide. It was better than the boat ride.

The spa (whirlpool) was free for guests - open 17:00-22:00. The massage was AR$ 200, and a friend said it was excellent.

There's a delicious seafood restaurant about 6 blocks away, left out of the hotel, over the roundabout, keep going past the marine base, and Pescador Atlantico is round the back of a club, a little hidden, but popular.

The hotel can arrange transport to/from Trelew airport.

We fonund the Penisula Valdes after staying one niht in another place that did not at all live up to the reviews on TA.
The staf at Hotel Penisula Valdes was realy friendly, they even bought us breakfast the day we arrived, said they would charge us but did not. The breakfast was not among the very best we have had but nothing wrong whith it at all.
The room was clean and spacius but a litle worn especialy the carpet. The room had a wonderfull ocean view.
The secluded parking space felt safe.
