“What a disappointment”
Reviewed March 1, 2009

This hotel was very disappointing. After viewing the gorgeous pictures on the Internet, I made a booking (paying in full, as they required--that should have been my first clue), only to discover that the photos were too good to be true.

The rooms were sloppily finished, not very clean (really dirty/stained carpet, dirty curtains and dirty windows; the sheets, while clean, were also stained). The walls were quite marked us for a hotel that seemed, at least in the photos, quite new. The rooms also had a dank smell to them due to excessive condensation and poor air circulation. The clerk at the desk suggested opening the window but then told us to close it at night as small animals were prone to enter the rooms at night.

The walls were either very thin or poorly insulated, because sound carried in this place extremely well, as we found out after the family of four moved in next door to us.

To be fair, we had an ABSOLUTELY gorgeous view from our bedroom window, but this was obstructed every morning by the condensation on the windows, if not the general griminess of the windows themselves.

The good: The rooms and bathroom were very spacious. The bed themselves were very comfortable and the linens, despite the stains, were nice. The TV offered a number of good satellite channels.

Internet was available, but not reliable. While the staff was helpful and friendly, I cannot say that this place was professionally run. For example, breakfast was supposed to run from 8:30 to 10:30 but seemed to only begin half and hour after whatever time we arrived. This was very frustrating when we had excursions planned. Also, the guest hot tub was frequently used by the owner and his girlfriend.

The fantastic view does not make up for this hotels many shortcomings.

We stayed for 5 nights, during september for late ski. Cerro Bayo was really nice, small but nice. Our biggest wish everyday was to end the ski day en the jacuzzi at las ramblas, enjoying a champagne out. The room was beautiful and staff were very kind. The hotel is on a small hill from where you can have an amazing view of the lake. Martin, the owner, is really envolved trying to help us arranging activities and making our days, special.
We loved our days there, hope to come back and recomend it!!!!

We stayed for 3 nights in early January. The room was beautiful and staff were very kind. The hotel sits on a hill above the lake and at night it was wonderful to sit on their exquisitely lit and landscaped bank amongst the roses and lupins with one of their two cats on my lap and gaze out at the lake and the sky. I had some of the best wines there I've ever had! The staff were very helpful and informative - anything we needed, they made sure we got. We traveled all over southern Argentina during this trip - all hotels were 5-star. This one was my favorite. Vona Priest, British Columbia, Canada.

  • Liked — Great view. Modern fixtures. Comfortable and well made beds. Great wines. Luxury!
  • Disliked — Nothing
