Sol Arrayan Hotel & Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 26, 2010

We had a wonderful time at the Sol Arrayan Hotel and Spa. The hotel is in Villa La Angostura, a wonderful small village approximately one hour north of Bariloche (an easy drive from the Bariloche airport). We preferred the smaller upscale village of Villa La Angostura to the larger and more congested Bariloche. The Sol Arrayan hotel offers a magnificent setting sitting on the banks of Lake Nahuel Huapi. The hotel is a small boutique type hotel with 6 floors of rooms. There is a bar on the top floor, with reception and the lobby on the fifth floor, the restaurant on the fourth floor and the spa and pool on the third floor. The rooms were very clean and offered lovely views of the lake from each room. Our room (#507) had a very small balcony that one could step out onto to view the lake. The rooms were well appointed and furniture was in very good condition and the beds were extremely comfortable.
The hotel is owned and operated by a local family and it shows. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and showed genuine concern for their guests. Pablo and Sebastian are the onsite owners and operators and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable and everything was to our satisfaction. They were very courteous and helpful and provided great suggestions for sightseeing, dining or other needs. They printed out boarding passes as well as other documents for us. The restaurant offered wonderful food and drink. Breakfasts were included and were very nice as well. We spent 3 days at the Sol Arrayan and we would highly recommend the Sol Arrayan and Villa La Angostura to anyone visiting the Bariloche area.

A two year old hotel, two kms from the centre of Villa La Angostura (30 min easy walk), built above the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi in the 7 Lakes distict, near Bariloche in the foothills of the Andes, with magnificent views. The initial room we were offered was pleasant but very small but in the "peak" of the off-season (with perhaps only 3 other couples) we were upgraded to a lovely suite with a small balcony and jacuzzi, both ideal for champagne and sunsets (which we were fortunate to enjoy 2 of). very comfortable bed, but the room tended to be overheated, as others have said. Note no hair dyers. The decor is elegant in a minimalist Scandanavian style with the extensive use of timber and a restful warm colour scheme. very pleasant spa facilities with an outdoor/indoor swimming pool.
A reall y nice lounge area with an open fireplace. The restaurant was very good with an excellent breakfast and an interesting dinner menu, but beware! In the off-season, you have to tell the management in the morning that you will have dinner there so they can bring in staff. Unfortunately we only found this out when we tried to have dinner on a wet, miserable night after returning from an all day drive around the 7 Lakes (on bone-shaking dirt roads).
The staff were all very helpful and pleasant with the receptionist organising our horse-back riding and hire car excursions.
For those of you who know Argentina, nothing starts early and La Angostura is no exception (at least in the off-season) and so don't worry about the 8:30 breakfast start.
Being on an off-season package, the prices were very good and with an upgrade, excellent.

Stayed for 3 nights in April.
Great room and location.

The view is stunning. Words and pictures cannot describe it or do it justice.

The hotel is fairly small, but great service. Quite new so very clean and neat / tidy.

The pool and spa is fantstic and all it needs to be.

Great rooms and facilities, brilliant jacuzzi in the room overlooking the lake.

Slightly noisy at night, but enough Malbec puts paid to that!

Will definitely be back.

We absolutely loved the Sol Arrayan. It's a small hotel, very quaint, but with exceptional service, small but very comfortable rooms, amazing views of the water, and excellent facilities (pool/spa/restaurant). The staff/service was impeccable (especially for a small hotel). The room albeit small but were very comfortable with twice a day room service (free towels, etc) The restaurant was excellent we though with very good quality food, which was good because the "finer" dining options in Villa La Angostura were a bit limited. The town of Villa La Angostura is cute, but quite small and not terribly exciting. The setting though is incredible peaceful and truly relaxing. Our only complaint...we were on the 5th floor, and despite our radiator being "off", our room was on the warm side the whole time, and especially at night. We had to sleep with the door to balcony open to let the cool evening air in. Regardless, it's soo quiet there that our sleep wasn't disturbed and we didn't have any issues with bugs. I would still highly recommend this place

A small group of friends – three couples- traveled in Argentina at Christmas - New Year time of 2010. We stayed several nights at Sol Arrayan in Villa Angostura. The village itself is charming – nice little shops, really good restaurants. The hotel is just outstanding – great architecture, good service, great views.
Rooms are not especially large but they have nice balconies all with view of the lake. Pool is inside – outside and nice. Spa I did not find especially attractive.
We had a great New Year celebration arranged by the restaurant.

A bit daungerous to go with little children (stairs, fireplace, etxc.)

The Sol Arrayan might not be the most 5 star hotel in the world but the staff are charming, the location is fantastic, the food good and accomodations are all up to par. A wonderful option to staying in Bariloche which is overbuilt and frankly ugly, although it is 60 kms away by car. Dowtown Villa La Angustaura is nice with a fair share of restaurants and things to do.
If staying in winter take the jacuzzi rooms, if in summer opt for the cheaper rooms with balconies overlooking the lake and the mountains and enjoy cocktails on your own terrace.
