“Great B&B”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

Reading comments below, you find right & wrong. Our opinion:
- Not a hotel but a B&B
- Indeed a good, extended breakfast
- Being a B&B the price is high
- But it is a very clean and maintained place.

So, we did not regret our say at all taking the above things into account. It is what we were looking for, and it is what we got.

Del Nomade delivered exactly what we wanted - a really comfortable, well put-together bedroom and bathroom, professional staff and a superb breakfast. Sound straightforward but rarely delivered. Would definitely recommend.

Only adverse comment would be that, given the location, the staff could have been more forthcoming in telling us about activities on offer and how to go about arranging them.

We stayed here for three nights over Christmas, in two rooms. The booking was all done by email beforehand, and the hosts Lala and Laura very friendly and efficient. We arrived to be greeted by Marina, and to find that the rooms were really spacious, light, and airy, with nice new en suites, and the super-comfy huge beds. Each room had a small decked terrace, which was lovely but totally bare and could have done with a couple of chairs and maybe a small table. The wifi was a bit slow, although the signal was better in the breakfast room. Everything was spotlessly clean.

Breakfast was a yummy concoction of homemade cookies, breads, jams, yogurt, and fresh fruit, with juice, tea and coffee. On Christmas morning each guest was presented with a small homemade panettone! As one of the nights we were staying was Christmas Eve, and pretty much everywhere in town was closed, Lala had (with our agreement) booked us a meal at the nearby Paradise Restaurant (which was pricy but a fabulous feast). The hotel is not on the beach, but five minutes walk through the village/sand dunes gets you there - it was great to spend Christmas Day on the sand, along with many local families. Staying on the peninsula, so close to the seals and relatively close to the penguins, felt like a privilege, and staying in sandy Puerto Piramides was an unexpected treat. Del Nomade was the perfect blend of simplicity and serene service.

The hotel advertises itself as an ecohosteria, and we saw more evidence of that here than most places in South America, but it was very comfortable and even felt luxurious. The rooms (including breakfast and tax) were USD$136 each per night, which we felt was on the pricy side, but well worth it for the location on the peninsula and the level of comfort and service provided, especially over the holidays. Lala and Marina (sadly we never met Laura) were delightful and couldn’t have been more helpful. Especially given the location, we’d love to go back and experience their hospitality again.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have decked terraces, first floor ones have views across the dunes...

I have given very few one star reviews on TripAdvisor but when i do the place deserves it. Unfortunately Del Nomade deserves it. First, the hostel (not hotel) is vastly overpriced for what it delivers. They ask $190 a night for rooms, public areas, breakfast, and services that are incredibly basic. Its clean and cute in a basic way but I have stayed in nicer hostels and (for less than the $190 a night they ask for) stayed in much nicer hotels in other areas of Patagonia. Second, in an area that is dedicated to tourism if you arrange excursions, you better do them right. I am sure there will be a lengthy "explanation" from the hotel owners after this is published but the short of it is we asked to book a driver to take us to three locations in the reserve. We repeatedly confirmed that we were booked with a car and driver to take us to the locations because they had told us they might not be able to arrange it. They confirmed repeatedly before we booked it. But when the "car" arrived on our last morning it was a tour bus from Puerto Madryn that had stopped to pick us up en route. As it was our last day and we were assured we would go to the three places we had asked to visit, we made the most of it and joined the group. What a mistake. We had been told the additional fees would be $15 each -- they were $50 each. We were told we would visit the three sites, we visited ONE and spent the rest of the time watching the tour group have a three hour one-bottle of wine per person lunch at an estancia. We were assured we would be back before 6pm to join the sunset whale watch. We arrived back closer to 7pm and missed it. Utter failure in arrangements followed by utter failure to take responsibility for the mistake (the "discount" they gave us was actually the cash discount they had previously offered). Finally, from reading Rough Guide and Lonely Planet you get the idea that Penninsula Valdes is a laid back but interesting place to stay with restaurants, walkable sites, close penguin colony etc. Completely untrue. its a one street town that most visit from Puerto Madryn and Trewlew. You MUST have a car if you stay over (and the locals on the main roads drive insanely btw -- to and from the airport was white knuckle all the way). The scenery is flat hot and dry and we were not even visiting in high summer. The distances are very very very long. We walked to the sea lion colony that is supposedly a nice walk from town. Its a dusty dangerous walk with no shade next to traffic unused to seeing people on the road - very dangerous. The idea of riding a bike on the dusty gravel up the large hills is not my idea of a vacation (and we biked 50 km in one day on our honeymoon). The only thing in Puerto Piramides is the whales and the shell embankment (on the right side of the bay - an awesome walk) - and those are doable as a fantastic day trip from elsewhere. Otherwise you are driving to the sea lions (very small colony), driving to the penguins (smaller colony than south of Trelew) etc. If i was visiting the area again, i would stay in Puerto Madryn and do a day trip north to Puerto Piramides for whale watching and another day south to the larger penguin colony. there is no need to stay in Puerto Piramides when there are more lodgings and food options in Puerto Madryn (and a shorter drive to/from the airport in Trelew).

My husband and I were super pleased with everything about Del Nomade. We stayed the nights before and after a 3 day kayak trip with Patagonia Explorers in December 2011, which worked out well for us because the staff at Del Nomade and Patagonia Explorers were able to coordinate our needs and keep each other informed when our arrival was delayed by flight problems. We didn’t arrive to Del Nomade until after 11 pm, but an employee stayed late to greet us and make sure that check-in went smoothly. And, breakfast was provided earlier than usual the next morning to facilitate an early start with Patagonia Explorers.
After the kayak trip, we were covered with dust and grime, and it felt so good to be able to return to Del Namade to clean up. We zonked out the minute we laid down in the comfortable bed.
Everything is spotlessly clean, comfortable, and well organized. We even enjoyed a stroll through the front yard and garden which are sustained with re-claimed water. Del Nomade’s operations are environmentally sound, and we appreciate that.

We spent 6 nights at Del Nomade, which really isn't luxury at all - but it has this´s nice and homey feel coming from friendly staff, home baked bread and laid back atmosphere that makes it a really good experience. It is expensive for the level of luxury if offers - but then again, it is right by the greatest whale watching adventures one can imagine, and the staff was just amazing. They helped us with car rentals, our travel planning and several other things. Still have a small bag of those nice home made cookies...

The hotal is not fancy, but has everything you need in a clean, practical and pleasent way.
The best part is the team, Laura, Marina and Lala, who were super helpful, both when we stayed there but even more importantly as i was planing the trip. In Patagonia good English and an understanding of a US based traveler perspective is hard to come by, these ladies are awesome!!!
The best experience we had for an accomodation in this trip!

trip planning tip: if you can stay more than one night in the Peninsula Valdez area, plan to to stay at Puerto Piramides rather then Puerto Madryn, it is a wonderful small town inside the reserve.
